Who's puppy demands attention?

When you are on the telephone? On the computer? Going to the bathroom? Taking a shower?

Pick Me! I mean Dexter that is!

My guys don't demand my attention, but the boys follow me everywhere! When I'm busy doing things, they are just at my feet or following me around. The only time they demand my attention, is when they are afraid and want to be held.

dogs know what works. But be careful ,it can lead to problems. One of the rules in training ,is to ignore all demands. You lead and they will follow.

Cash will whine at me if I am on the computer late mornings. At night he does not do it. Cash will also push my hand if I have stopped stroking him and he wants more.

Jasper only demands attention when he has a need. If he needs to go out (and I mean NEED not want) he will sit in front of DH or me and just stare--- if we ignore him he will paw at us. If we ignore him a little longer...he grumbles...

Missy - Castro does exactly the same thing! He does the sit/stay and start grumbling when he needs to go out, or when he wants us to play with him.

Oh the bathroom !!! Linda I empathize and I am all ears on the great advice. I have 2 now so serious business here. Dave, thank you. When I have to go the bathroom, I have not been taking Evye with me. I tell her to wait (versus stay). Meaning she is free to roam her confined area, but she cannot come with me. It's early yet...it's new for her as it is for me.

Pablo started demanding our attention by pawing at us, mostly me, which I think is the cutest thing. BUT I completely ignore it, cause I don't want him to become demanding. The only things that are allowed here are scratching the water bowl for refill when it's empty and whining to go potty outside.

Todd's not demanding he just likes to make sure that he know's what I'm doing all of the time.
If I move he watches and if I leave his line of sight most times he'll follow me and lay down nearby to make sure that he's not going to be left out.
The only time that he is really demanding is first thing in the morning when the kids let him out of his crate...he's my alarm clock and will roll on top of me, lick my face and will not let me be until I get up.
He's REALLY good at his job..lol
