Why does my blue heeler follow me everywhere?

Your blue heeler follows you for one of the following reasons:

  • They’re intensely loyal and love their family. If they form a special bond with one person, they’ll want to be by your side constantly.
  • It may be that each time your blue heeler follows you, you reward him with attention and praise, which he naturally craves.
  • If your blue heeler seems nervous and clingy when he follows you, it could be that he’s developing separation anxiety. It may be worth consulting a vet or dog trainer to explore ways to handle this so you can leave him alone when needed without feeling guilty.
