|I HELD LADY SO HOLLY COULD GET A PICTURE.|
Or maybe they're hiding from a person or another dog, and they feel comfortable (and safe) around me.
I've always wondered if it's partly about dominance.
We've had Lady since October 2002, and she's never once leaned on me. But she lets me know when she wants petted, fed or let outside. She gets lovey; she just doesn't lean.
Lady has run to me when she was afraid, but there's no leaning. She'll burrow between my legs or lay down underneath where I'm sitting.
I just found an online article about dog leaning.
Any ideas on the subject?
NOTE: Lady passed on Sept. 17, 2016.
