What are the Clingiest Dog Breeds?

Some dogs can occupy themselves perfectly well while pet parents are at work. Other breeds will cry every time their humans leave and people will find their canine constantly underfoot. Individuals should know that some breeds cling like plastic wrap to their humans.


A Hungarian breed, they want to be at their human’s side and are excellent cuddle buddies. Highly energetic, they were bred for falconry and will happily accompany their human companions on walking, jogging and hiking expeditions.

Labrador Retriever

Friendly and outgoing, Labs are the No. 1 breed in the U.S. Highly devoted to their human, they’re a large breed that will take every opportunity to be a lap dog.

Border Collie

The Maltese is an excellent choice for people that want a lap dog. They often cry in misery if left alone and prefer being with someone 24/7, making them ideal for people that are retired or work from home.
