Q. Have a question kind of weird.. They said something is wrong with the owner of pet if dog will not let out of site always up there behind

Answered By

A. I'm not sure who "they" are, but some dogs just naturally stay very close to their owners. There is a problem only if the dog becomes distressed when she is not near her owner. This behavior indicates a codependency that is not healthy.
