I am a new Doberman puppy owner and I have noticed that my puppy whines and cries when no one is near him. He is a very affectionate puppy and always wants to be around people. However, he becomes very restless and anxious when he is left alone or when someone is not near him.
I have tried distracting him with toys and treats but it seems like he just wants someone to be with him. I am not sure what to do about this behavior as I don't want him to become too dependent on human attention.
Has anyone experienced a similar kind of behavior in their Doberman puppies? If so, what did you do to address it? Any tips or suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
