We recently got Buddy, a four month old Cockapoo. Having only been with his new family for a matter of days he has already formed a very close bond with my wife and is extremely clingy with her. Although this is understandable based on the fact that she has spent the most time with him, it is becoming increasingly noticeable that Buddy massively favours Anna over myself and George (our 10 year old son). Is this normal behaviour and will Bud's 'clinginess' to Anna wear off? He goes in his crate at night and settles after 10 minutes of whimpering/howling then sleeps though until the morning. During the day though he only seems to settle when she is around. He pays little attention to me when I come home from work, ie no tail wagging, and will even hide behind Anna's legs for the first few minutes. He does eventually come out of his shell with me but there is a significant difference in how he behaves toward Anna - I'm not paranoid, honest.... Advice, hints and tips or any feedback welcome .
