This thread does kind of scare me somewhat. I can handle the wanting to be in the same room as you velcro-ness, another breed we're planning on getting is that way, but the always has to be touching you velcro-ness might be too much for me. I don't know though, it's something I really need to think about before the time comes.
I have found as long as Toby knows where I am within the house. That I am not going to disappear down a wormhole or the like he is fine with watching me from the other side of the room or indeed from down the corridor whilst laid out on my bed. He sleeps only on my side during this time, not dads. When we are having a cuddle in the morning it is my side he gets up on, my side he lays on, with his head on some part of my body so I cannot sneak out of bed whilst he is fast asleep. But if I tell him to give me space, he will.
Toilet breaks are a must accompany situation, (I might fall down the loo and disappear). Besides, it offers a Dobe some serious butt scratching time whilst you are captive to their whims and your ablutions. LOL!
If I am in the kitchen he will sit at the door and watch me, (I might need him to pick something up I've dropped, lol!).
If I go outside, then I must have a chaperone and nothing I can say will stop it from happening. Even when it is raining (and we all know Dobes melt in the rain) he will do his duty and come out with me, then look pathetically in my direction until we go back inside.
The one thing I have noticed about my Dobe and it is probably pretty usual is,..
When there is danger my boy will come and sit so close to me he is touching me, whereas my Terrier he will bugger off in the opposite direction and not be seen for dust.
I personally like the Velcro attribute. Of course for some it may be too much, but for me, it has definitely made them that bit more special above the other breeds I have owned.
