First Walk Free *


Do you want a dog that will follow you anywhere, sleeps right by your side, or is truly a lap dog? These extra clingy dogs, which are also referred to as Velcro dogs, just have to be near their humans all the time to be happy. If you go to the bathroom, they are there. When you get up and walk, you may even trip over them. These dog breeds love their humans above all else. If you want a furry bestie who is always right by your side, check our these top 11 dog breeds that are extra clingy. 

#1 Yoranian

The Yoranian is a hybrid breed that is often called a Yorkie Pom because it is a mix of a Yorkshire Terrier and a Pomeranian. Yep, a fur ball with a silky little perky pup. This perfect sized lap dog with a fluffy yet silky coat barely even sheds. And they bond with you like you wouldn’t believe.

#2 Labrador Retriever

The number one dog in America many years in a row, this pooch loves to be pampered. They may be a bit big to be a lap dog, but you cannot tell them that because they’ll try to sit in your lap every chance they get. Their attention to their human is what makes them a great therapy or service dog too.

#3 Maltese

One of the earliest breeds to be bred as a lap dog, this pawesome and perky pup is tiny and travel-sized, so you can take them everywhere, which is good because they really need to be with you. All the time. If you want a Velcro dog, this is a good choice.

#4 Golden Labrador

Mixing two furiendly pooches like the Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever produces a large lap dog that will stick to you like superglue. Once they cannot fit in your lap anymore, they will still keep on trying and will curl up with you in bed as well if you let them. 

#5 German Shepherd

Although many people think of German Shepherds as guard dogs, they are good at guarding because they love their human so much, they have to be with them all the time. After all, how are they supposed to protect you if they are not with you 24/7? Oh yeah, they try to be lap dogs too.

#6 Affenpug

An Affenpug is a designer dog mix of the Affenpinscher and the Pug, which will give you a cuddly and furry lapdog that loves to be with you all the time. They insist on going wherever you go, so they are not good dogs to be left alone a lot, which is why they’re on this list. 

#7 Doberman Shepherd

The Doberman and the German Shepherd may both seem like furocious pups to some, but they are really just big clingy lapdogs that think they are human. Even though they’re big, they want to be right on top of you no matter what, so get used to being a part of a pair.

#8 Maltipoo

The Maltese and the Poodle are both lovey-dovey dogs, so mixing them makes them double lovey-dovey. The size of your Maltipoo depends on the type of Poodle used in breeding, and they will try to sit with you, if not on you, wherever you may be, no matter how big they are. 

#9 Pugapoo

Another hybrid, the Pugapoo is a Pug and Poodle mix that is loving, gentle, and intelligent as well as clingy. They love their humans and will do whatever they can to go where you go and luckily, they fit in your lap or handbag or backpack so you can take them anywhere. 

#10 Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkie is an adorable, tiny and furry pup that has no idea how small they really are. In fact, they’re furrific hunters and will keep your house free of rats and mice when they are not sitting in your lap, laying next to you, or hopping around under your feet.

#11 Shih Chi

What will you get when you blend a Shih Tzu with a Chihuahua? A tiny and cuddly lap dog that has a big fursonality. They’re not lazy, but not hyper either, and love to sit in your lap or on your head or wherever else they can reach. As long as they’re with you, they’re happy.
