Default Dogs most into their owners

Not sure if we've ever had a thread like this, but which breeds do you find are most attached to their owners. Follow them around like shadows, easily focus on them, love to work with them, always happy to see them, always love to get attention from them, would rather be with their owners than meet strangers or other dogs, etc.


This is mainly for curiosity's sake, I'm not certain whether or not this is an important trait for me...but I'd like to hear what you all come up with.

I grew up with German shepherds and a Sheltie, and Elsie, my Tervuren, is easily the most velcro-shadow dog I've ever had or lived with.

Flatcoats, especially males, fit into this category.

General saying among FCR owners with regards to how long they've owned the breed is "hasn't gone to the restroom alone in ___ years."

Personally, I shut the bathroom door so that's not really a problem

Herding breeds, for me. They seem to enjoy taking direction, watching and interacting with what you do, and don't tend to blow you off. When I let Romeo out, he goes and pees, and then comes right back to the door to see what I am doing. Casey for the most does this as well. The other dogs take their sweet time and meander around the yard.

I've never lived with an asian breed, but I feel they are most independent and least velcro-y. Akitas, Chows, Shar-Peis, Shibas...they love their people but I don't think they are very biddable or overly interested in what you are doing.

My Malinois have no interest whatsoever in strangers. They are very into us.

My pit bulls are follow-you-around love bugs but they are extremely stranger social.

Rosey. She even blows off dog people (like Allie. Allie can't get the time of day from Rosey, after she gets her "safety check over". Though even that's become less regular)

That's a breed, right?

Border collies.... If Bamm could climb into my lap while I pee on the toilet he would. He is super velcro.

Elsie has climbed into my lap while I was peeing before. Like, all four paws.

Macie(English Mastiff) and Dante(Bullmastiff) suffered from UMB syndrome(up my butt syndrome). You couldn't go anywhere without them freaking out.

"OMG where are you going?"
"Take me, take me!"
"THERE IS A SECRET ESCAPE DOOR IN THE BATHROOM. I KNOW IT. Come BACK!"
"I thought you were going to leave me forever!" (gone only 5 minutes to pee)
"Oh, you're laying on the couch? Let me join you! I make an awesome lap dog, you know."

Constantly. UMB Syndrome.

I've heard of some Mastiffs that have chewed through entire walls trying to get to their owners.
