My lhasopoo, Sugar, is 8 years old and as I have read about lhasas, has always been clingy and doesn't like to be left alone. She's always loved visitors and would constantly beg for attention from them. However, whenever my boyfriend is over she becomes ridiculously clingy and basically shuts down (won't eat treats and her tail is always tucked). She likes him but hardly leaves my side, even if I take her over to him she still wants to be with me.

Anyone know why or have any advice on how to break it? It bugs the crap out of me! Especially since it's usually hard to find a guy that actually likes your dogs lol.
