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:
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.
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.
