Why does my dog always sit BEHIND me? His bed is about 3 feet away diagonally from my gliding chair, but he will sit behind my glider always. If I leave the room he will sit in his bed or just follow me around and ALWAYS BEHIND me. ???

  • my dog is like that. Does he cry if you go out without him, or have any other symptoms? – Yvette Oct 26 '18 at 15:41

    I think that dogs tend to sit behind the leaders of the pack. So most probably your dog considers you the leader of the pack and sits behind you for that reason. – papakias Oct 29 '18 at 14:46

    Consider yourself a lucky guy, it took me month of intense training to teach my dog to walk (at least technically) behind me. It shows that your dog accepts you as his pack leader. Enjoy it. In terms of laying behind your glider chair, it's because it's the closest he can get to you when you're sitting on your desk. Mainly because he loves you and wants to be close to you. The only way changing this is to constantly send him back to his bed until he gets the message. – Marcello di Simone Nov 7 '18 at 13:28
