Hello community,

My dog is a 5 months old maltese. I live in a big household. I live with my parents, one brother and 2 sisters. I take care for the puppy but the whole family plays with her and interact with her non stop. HOWEVER, she has gotten too attached to me. Even though she plays with everybody in the family, when I leave the house she whines. If my sisters or anyone else leaves she doesn't care but when I do she whines. Also, she follows me everywhere!

Is this bad?

Btw, in the picture below she is sleeping next to the door of the bathroom while I am taking a shower...

Yes, it's annoying for dogs to whine when you leave, but it's also pretty common. If you just keep leaving for short periods of time, she will figure it out and get less anxious about it.
