In 2005 I brought my five dogs (4 rescue) to Canada from the UK. I have two dogs that were rescued after being strays and both were adults when I adopted them. It is one of these adults I am having problems with - he is about 11 years old and in perfect health with no previous health problems. He is 4th in the dominance line but has now got to the stage where he will not leave anyone alone, if it is not me he will follow whoever is in the house around like a shadow - he prefers to be with a human than playing outside with his mates. The following around has now got to be an obsession with him and even after being told repeatedly to sit down, he doesn't seem to be able to keep to it for more than a few minutes. Any advice would be appreciated?
