Ours come over and sit right at your feet and do the same thing. It's just for attention, not dominance or anything like that. They want to be loved on and not be ignored.
They also walk right beside or behind us wherever we go. Which means we stumble and awful lot especially if we decide we need to take a step back or go back the way we came. LOL Doesn't mean they are dominant...just means they like you and want to know where you are going and what could possibly be more important than petting them.

Petie doesn't do this with everyone that he meets, but for those he means he is comfortable with them and he is willing to trust them. For a dog that started out being shy and somewhat fear aggressive, its wonderful to see him behave this way when meeting strangers...........he's come a long ways from the dog that stood back with his hackles up.

Thanks everyone for your input. We were just at Petsmart where Bodi leaned so much into Santa when we were taking his picture that he knocked over Santa, the display and a few people!

lol - now what do you want for Christmas Bodi?

Sighthounds are big into leaning and standing on your feet at the same time. A friend of mine breedsd IWs and those big boys will stand on your feet than lean into you - almost like they know they need to keep you from tipping over LOL. Definitely a show of affection.

nothing in the world is accomplished without passion

I'm glad you guys all posted about this. Strider does it too, and he also lays his head on our feet when he lays at our feet. A dog trainer friend of mine claims that he is quote "giving me the finger" and trying to dominate me as he is doing so. Sure...that's why he does everything I ask him to.
