What is a velcro dog?  Well, if you have one, you already know.  But to explain, it is a dog that wants to be as close as possible to their human dog mom and dog dad whenever they are around.  A velcro dog will follow you around from room to room just to be near you at all times. Some say overly clingy, we prefer velcro!

Happy Tails

Velcro dogs want to be with their human all the time.  They just exude happiness when they follow you around.  Dogs are pack animals and we are their pack. If following their pet parent around leads to snacks or pets, dogs will remember and perform the behavior more frequently. Most people will find this behavior endearing. On the opposite spectrum is a dog with separation anxiety will experience panic if you are not by their side. Separation anxiety describes  dogs that usually are overly attached or dependent on family members. They become extremely anxious and show distress behaviors .

Where I Go…Dog Follows

Your friends at Dog is Good, recognize and celebrate the velcro dog.  We are laughing at our new collection and we know you will be too.

At first, it was cute. You loved how the dog followed you everywhere. Now, maybe not so much – at least not ALL the time anyway.  But it’s a fact of daily life with Dog.  No privacy for them when business calls, and no privacy for you either. Celebrate your “space invader” with this T-shirt that only dog lovers will understand.
