I was just wondering if your dog is affectionate and how do they show their affection.
They told me that Kelpies aren't very affectionate but I think Loeka definitely has his moments : )
For example, Loeka sleeps in our bedroom in his own bed. After the alarm goes off, he's allowed on the bed by invitation only (he needs to be called, sit, and be told UP). Then he will lick us to death and wriggle around because it's OHSOEXCITINGTOBEUPAT630AM!!!!!! Also, he knows he will get fed soon after : )
When we get home from work, he knows he isn't allowed to bark, jump or ask for attention but ohboy is he excited! His butt wiggles (even when he sits patiently) and his ears are pinned back in anticipation. He has to wait until I've put away my things and usually I will go to the back deck and sit on the couch and then he is allowed on the couch by invitation only and again it's Loeka Loving time. He likes sitting in my lap, sticking his tongue in my ear, getting tummy rubs, head rubs, etc.
Unfortunately, he recently started a habit of pawing me and I wonder if it's affection or trying to get me to do stuff. He also sits on our feet or leans against our legs which I've been told is a Kelpie thing but I don't know if that is affection or dominance.
So tell me your stories!
