Does your dog (if you have on) shadow your childs every move?

When our daughter is outside playing, our dog is always wherever she is.When I look to check up on her,if I can't see her right away, I look to see where the dog is because I know where ever the dog is she will be close by.

  • Mt MILs dog followed my daughter every where her first year. I was leaving with her the first year of my daughters life and the funny thing the dog and my daughter shared the same birthday and they were the same age. The dog followed and was always behind her if my daughter was about to fall over when attempting to stand, She was very protective of my daughter.
