Sounds a lot like my Kelpie, Skip. She constantly has her attention on me... She's never on a lead out on the farm but every few seconds she stops and looks at me to make sure she's going the right way, so cute!
LOL, nope - that is so not Anubis. You take him for a walk, all he can do and focus on.......are Squirrels. Nothing else. He even gets stepped on because he stops so much right in out pathway - beacuse he is so focused on what Squirrel he can attempt to sink his teeth into.
The only real time that he is focused on me while inside the house, is when it is cookie time, potty time, or bed time....the other 22 hours of the day, he's looking out the window, scoping out Squirrels.
Ha ha, that's hilarious! We used to have problems with Kangaroos, Deer, Rabbits, Hares, Sheep... lol. But I found taking her riding with me really helped get her attention off chasing other things and on chasing me!
