Dogs That Like Much Attention

Although all dogs ask for much time, and love, there are also some breeds of dogs that like lots of attention.

Dogs love to get attention. It can often be because they are nervous or scared and need reassurance. Or they are just accustomed to receiving much attention and the more they have, the more they want.

It is gratifying that our dog asks us to caress him by touching his hand with his muzzle or lying next to us from time to time, but nobody likes a dog to become his shadow and not leave him alone for a minute.

 10 Dog Breeds that require a lot of attention


The husky was born to run. It needs a lot of stimulation, both physically and mentally, to prevent stress and anxiety.

He is very loyal to his owner, sometimes even a little possessive. Stubborn, he is capable of claiming attention in any circumstance.

 Border Collie

Dog lovers have named the Border Collie “the canine Einstein”. A border collie that does not receive sufficient physical, intellectual and emotional stimulation may develop behavioral problems.

This bright and energetic breed is not content with a simple run a week, the Border Collie needs full attention from its owner throughout the different game sessions to be happy.


Carlino, more than a breed of dog, is almost a species with all the law. With their cute little faces and their corkscrew-shaped tail, they are flattered all over the world.

As much as he seems happy to sleep all Sunday afternoon with you in front of the TV, they are very stubborn dogs and do many catastrophes.

They are prone to hearing, respiratory and gastrointestinal problems. For all this, they are dogs that need a lot of attention and love to be happy.

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire is small but powerful. It looks like a fragile toy, but the truth is that it is a ball of hair full of energy.

Without proper training, it is possible for Yorkshire to develop what is known as ‘small dog syndrome’, which means that it becomes possessive and protective of its family.

These dogs also need daily care to keep their fur smooth and smooth.

English Bulldog

This big and soft hairball always wants to go everywhere and do everything with your family. If you do a little tour of YouTube, you will realize that they are well endowed for activities usually reserved for people, such as skateboarding or surfing.

On the other hand, bulldogs are so attached to their owners, that they may suffer anxiety when they separate from their family or if they are alone at home often. They are often prone to different health problems, so visit the veterinarian frequently.

Jack Russell

Jack Russell is a dog that overflows with an endless desire to run, hunt and play. They are not made to live with other animals, such as hamsters or gerbil. Their overpowering energy drives them to do catastrophe, but in spite of that, they are very affectionate dogs.


Dalmatian is not a race made for vague people. These dogs need to run, and preferably, with their owners. A Dalmatian who does not exercise or is not in close contact with his owner can develop destructive behavior. To prevent it, you can go jogging, be hiking, be playing or even taking a bike ride with your Dalmatian. He will be the happiest in the world.

Labrador Retriever

Labrador is one of our favorite races for many reasons: They are adorable, they get along perfectly with the kids, they like to go out and they are extremely loyal. Their behavior is identified with that of a puppy, and that’s why we like them so much. They are very affectionate and demand a lot of attention from their owners.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Nicknamed “sponge of love,” it is a dog that needs a lot of attention from its owner. It adapts perfectly to any way of life, all they care about is to be in contact with their family.


The name of this breed may not be familiar to you, but we will give you a clue about their behavior: They are often called “Black Devil.” Do not be fooled by their small size, they overflow energy and are very protective of their family.

The Schipperke is a very intelligent and curious dog that needs an affectionate and attentive home. They also need to do a lot of exercise in order to channel all the energy they have.

Your dog wants you to notice him. This behavior is often linked to the desire for attention. It is not necessarily related to something specific such as “letting the pancita” or “throw the ball.”

In that case, your dog wants to get your attention, he will probably be happy with no more affection-but only after you have provided exercise and discipline, of course.
