Why Does My Pomsky Follow Me Everywhere?

Read Time: ~4 Minutes

Do you have a Pomsky? If so, then you know that they are one of the most loyal dogs around. They always want to be by your side and they follow you everywhere you go! Why is this? What is it about Pomskies that makes them so attached to their owners? In this article, we will explore the reasons why Pomskies follow their owners everywhere and what it means for both the dog and the owner. Stay tuned for more information!

Why do Pomskies follow their owners around?

  1. It’s in their genes! Pomskies are pack animals, and when they are removed from their mother and father, they feel safe with only one person in the whole world – You! If you adopted your Pomsky at an early age, chances are you are the mother/father figure in their life.
  2. Your pomsky can be following you around because they haven’t had enough exercise and want your attention. Pomskies inherit Husky temperament and huskies were bred for centuries with one purpose: dragging sleds – so if you don’t give them enough exercise, these intelligent animals will need to find alternative ways to amuse themselves.
  3. Pomskies are known for their loyalty and love of their owners, so they follow you around everywhere! You are your pomskies favorite companion and they love being around your scent.
  4. You’re their whole world! They adore you and they just can’t help themselves from being as close to you as possible!

Why did my Pomsky suddenly start following me around?

The relationship between humans and their dogs can be a complicated one. One moment you’re inseparable, the next your pet seems happier when they are left on their own to explore or play with other animals – as if something has changed in that split second! What’s really going through those furry little minds though? If you notice that your previously independent pomsky has become increasingly clingy they may be dealing with having health issues. If you suspect that this might be the case please consult with a licensed veterinarian in order to rule out conditions such as sickness, injuries, and hearing/vision issues.

Is it a problem that my pomsky follows me everywhere?

Your dog is like a little companion in your day-to-day life. If they follow you everywhere and you have ruled out the potential health issues,  there’s nothing to worry about! The key here is teaching them how much freedom and space will be given before drawing boundaries with their movement so as not to cause anxiety or concern for their safety when left alone at home.

How to correct the excessive following

If your pomsky follows you around too much to the point where you’re fearful of separation anxiety when you leave your pup alone, it’s time to do something about it. 

Exercise And Mental Stimulation

Make sure you’re giving your dog plenty of exercise. A tired pup will be much more content and less likely to develop attachment issues. If possible, try to get other people to give your pomsky walks as well, this will help reduce your pomsky’s reliance on you. In addition to physical exercise, mental stimulation is just as important for your dog’s mental health and wellbeing. Don’t forget about providing them with plenty of toys and puzzles to keep their brain working!

Raising your pomsky’s confidence

The first step to getting your dog’s confidence is making sure they feel safe. If you want them comfortable without having to be right by your side, provide some encouragement and training so it’s easier on him or her when following you around is simply not an option. Teaching your pup some tricks, such as sitting and staying put for you while away from the room can be a great way to help them notice that being alone is ok. Make sure they’re rewarded with plenty of treats in order to make this fun for your pomsky. Once you have done this for a while you can slowly increase how you leave the room for – just like teaching any new skill Remember: dogs need repetition to learn new behaviors so try not to give up on these movements altogether if one attempt doesn’t give the results you’re looking for.

So, what can you do if your pomsky is following you around excessively? First and foremost, make sure that they are getting enough exercise and mental stimulation. This means taking them for walks, playing fetch or tug-of-war, and providing plenty of toys to keep them entertained. Additionally, work on raising your pomsky’s confidence. This may mean enrolling them in obedience classes or setting rules and limits that they must follow. If all else fails, consult with a behaviorist who can help assess your specific situation and provide you with instruction on how to address the excessive following.
