Ok so one of the reasons I chose a V was because I was going to get "this velcro dog that was always at my side" Clyde is now 7 months old and when we are confined in the house he is by my side but the minute we set foot out the door, he could care less about me or staying by me. When we go to the dog park he is often times on the other side of the park and leaving me in the dust. I see other dogs that sort of stick by there owners even if another dog goes zipping past them. Is this an age thing? As he matures will he care less about them and want to stay close to me or is Clyde not typical?
