Cuddly or Not???

Im just curious as to how many of you have cuddly Havs? And were they always cuddly or does it change with age?

Milo prefers to have his own space and likes to be on the floor.

He used to be obsessed with getting on the couch when i first got him and i never let him up as i wanted to wait untill he was big enough to jump off safely. Now that hes allowed, he only wants to get off and be on the floor! He doesnt snuggle either, hed rather just have his own space.

I am in a way proud that he is independant at such a young age, he does really well alone also which is great but Im wandering if he will become more cuddly when hes out of his hyper puppy fase!

My first Hav, Bailey, was a cuddler from day one, but Tyler never has been and I wish he would. Both of our dogs never, ever even tried to get up on the furniture. They were never stopped, just never tried. In fact, if I try to put Tyler on the couch with us, he wants down just like Milo. I guess each has his/her own personality.

Emmie was not a cuddler as a puppy but as she's gotten older (she's 2 yrs old now), she's become much more of one. I like that's she's independent and doesn't want to be on me all the time but I also enjoy the short periods when she wants to snuggle up next to me on the couch or bed.

Leo's often a cuddle bunny and he isn't too particular about who he cuddles with! A complete stranger is as good as Mom or Dad. The exception being if there is another dog to play with then the other dog wins out most of the time. He will play with our other 2 dogs until they tire of him then come snuggle up to me! He has been this way from the beginning.

Sophie is going to be 6 months old tomorrow and she really isn't much of a cuddler, she likes to get into things and on and off of the futniture by herself, very independent.

It depends on how you define cuddly. Mine likes to be touching me...he drapes himself over my foot, or he presses himself against my leg (small of back when I'm sleeping), and he likes to put his head on my shoulder. He doesn't like being in my lap though. He's happier either at my feet or my head.

Mine likes to put his head on my shoulder while he is sitting on the back of the sofa. I think it is because I can't brush him from that angle loll. He is 7 months old.

My guys all love to be held.

When I'm lying on my bed watching TV, the only one who likes to cuddle is Fred. He was never like this until recently. He can't wait for me to lie down and then he climbs onto my chest and lies flat on me. He also like to cuddle while sleeping.

Bella and Scudder prefer their own space. Scudder is always close by if not touching me.
