    DefaultDo your dogs walk so close that...

    They step on your pant legs and your shoes?

    Either that or they are so sneaky that when you turn around you trip over them because they are standing right behind you?

    My dogs don't, but I have a friends dog that tries to kill me every time she visits. I don't know if its because mine are obedience trained, but they pay pretty close attention to where I'm stepping. I've never stepped on them and they don't step on me.

    I think its a respect thing.

    "MOVE" is a constant shout in my house... of course the constant return look of "WHAT?" is always there too! But 3 big dogs and 3 stubborn cats, something is always in the way. LOL

    Homer does it during our morning walks. It is very annoying, he´s irrespectful of my personal space. I push him away. Misha is very good.
    In the house I don´t mind him laying close to me if I´m watching TV or doing something in the kitchen, but if I´m moving around and he keeps on laying down right besides me everytime I move, then I have to "ask" him to move OUT of my way.

    Bauer used to be a very "close walker". My left shoe was always dirtier than my right because he was constantly stepping on my foot. We have been working on this, and he is much better now; he stays about 1 1/2 to 2 feet away when we walk, 2 or 3 feet away when we run. My shoes are much cleaner.

    He still follows me around the house constantly. I like to show visitors Bauer's trick . I will say, "Bauer, let's have a parade," then stand up and start marching . . . he is always right behind me regardless of where I go or how many times I turn. People think it is amazing. What they don't know is that he would follow me regardless.

    I want to know... when I'm unloading the dishwasher, how does Gus know the precise cabinet I need to put things away in so that he lays in front of it??? I have to say move, get up, excuse me, bump his butt with the door until I just finally leave the pot/bowl/colander on the counter and figure he has to move eventually! He doesn't put the stuff away, how does he know where it goes?? LOL

    I read this earlier today and thought 'no Harvey doesnt do that anymore' so i didn't respond to the post at that time. Since then, he has managed to do it twice....
