A huge number of us decided to welcome new pups into our homes over the last couple of years – according to Kennel Club figures dog ownership soared over the global pandemic.

There are a whopping 221 different breeds of pedigree dog to choose from, alongside numerous crossbreeds, so there’s plenty of thinking to do before you select your family’s latest addition.

There’s even academic guidance to seek out, with Psychologist Stanley Coren’s book ‘The Intelligence of Dogs’ ranking breeds by instincts, obedience, and the ability to adapt.

One thing to take into consideration is that some dogs are well-known for their propensity to turn into so-called ‘velcro dogs’.

These are pets that tend to stick to their owners like glue, becoming anxious even if separated for a short period of time.

In one way this can be good – making you feel utterly loved by your pooch, who will be eager to please and would be highly unlikely to ever run away or get lost.

But it can also be exhausting if your dog is never content to curl up by itself for a few hours while you get on with other parts of your live.

Of course not all pup from a breed that are prone to this personality will turn out to be so needy, but it’s worth nothing that they are ones likely to be most clingy.

So, here are the 10 breeds of pup prone to becoming ‘velcro dogs’.

1. Vizsla

The Vizsla is the pooch that the term ‘velcro dog’ was invented for. Originally from Hungary, they will stick to their owner’s side through thick and thin – from walking and swimming, to curling up on the couch for an evening nap.

2. Labrador Retriever

Any Labrador owner who has found their dog waiting patiently for them outside the bathroom will be able to tell you how much this breed loves their human. The negative part of this is that the world’s most popular dog is also one of the most likely to suffer from separation anxiety.

3. Border Collie

Considering that the intelligent Border Collie has been bred to work incredibly closely with their owner to herd sheep, it’s perhaps no surprised that the relationship can be pretty intense from the dog’s point of view. Time apart from their owner can lead to this breed becoming destructive.

4. French Bulldog

French Bulldogs are pretty much certain to shadow you on even the shortest journey around the house. They love to cuddle up and crave attention throughout their waking hours.
