Ditto with hounds.

I often have to pick myself up off the ground when Betty, Missy, or Cleo decided that it is a smart idea to lay down right behind me. I walk through the house, or back yard and I am always shadowed by all three of them.

It almost looks like a furry imitation of the Beatles Abby Road picture.

I agree with the others. She will come around soon and if I were you I would enjoy my freedom while you have it. All my personal dogs were velcro dogs but the 2 I have right now are the worst. They follow me everywhere I go and I mean everywhere, Honey even knows how to open my bedroom door to get in there if I close it. It really is nice to have constant companions but I know there are days when I'm just running around the house and it would be much easier if I didn't have constant shadows. I mean Chloe is already doing the "I'm not listening to anyone but "her" thing which can get old too since she won't even go out to potty unless I take her. So yes it will be nice when she gets really attached to you but I would enjoy the extra space she gives for now.

I'm a bit concerned that the medicinal bath I have to give her now will completely prevent her from trusting me. You see, I have to give her a bath for ringworm and let the stuff sit on for 10 minutes then rinse her with cold water. She HAAAATES it. She's completely traumatized of baths now. I'm afraid that she'll never fully trust me because I have to do this to her while she's just a pup.

I think she will get over this whole episode, but I agree with you about being concerned it will/is affecting your relationship. I would insist on some alternative treatments. There are topical treatments out there. Sometimes it is OK to be insistent with the vet! It is your job, as puppy Mom, to be the negotiator with the vet in terms of alternate treatments if what is being recommended is problematic in some way for the pup. Mental health is also important to the puppy, in addition to skin health. Ringworm is not really a terribly dangerous condition... more of an inconvenience. As her immune system strengthens she should be better able to fight if off as well.

I wouldn't worry about it, I'm definitely with everyone else on this. Trust me I would trade my four velcro dogs for your dog. I am like the only disciplinary in my house, and people are like I don't know why your dogs like you, all you ever seem to do is correct them. I am like well sorry for believing the dogs like some structure in their life, it is like how I work. And trust me it isn't fun when you have three of four dogs outside your bathroom door every morning/night or when ever you are separate and all they do is whine like it is the end of the world.

As for the bathing you may be surprised how resilient dogs truly are. But I do agree with Tess, I would think they would have some topical treatment for the issue.
