Does Your Dog Always Follow You To The Bathroom? This Is What It Is Trying To Tell You

Our dogs have plenty of strange behaviors: freaking out at the vacuum (even though he’s seen it a million times and knows it’s not going to hurt him), licking anything and everything, and destroying things for no reason come to mind.

As a member of your family pack, your dog feels the need to be with you, doing. She may feel vulnerable in your absence.

Below are some of the ways in which how our dogs show us their love to their human:

#1 You’re his pack

Dogs are communal animals that run in packs so they’re used to doing everything together. Their instincts take them back to the days of hunting and defending their territory, all of which is done in a group. Especially for a particularly “vulnerable” moment like going to the bathroom, your dog wants to protect you! It just means he loves you. 

#2 They’re curious

What is hiding in the secret room? What could you possible be doing in there a few times a day with the door closed? The bathroom is part of what she considers her territory (a.k.a. the whole house). For her not to be able to patrol her terrain is stressful.

#3 They really missed you

Maybe you were gone all day at work or maybe you just came back from the grocery store, but either way it has been way to long since your dog has spent time with you (at least in his mind). You are your dog’s whole world, so when you’re home they want to spend as much time with you as possible, including in the bathroom.

What do you think?

  1. This is good. I am a trainer, have been for many years. I try to teach all of the pet parents this. This is why dogs don’t fare well being left outside in a fenced yard. They really need to be part of a pack. By putting them in the backyard away from you and the family means in their eyes, you have shunned them. Thank you for this wonderful post.
