8 Dog Breeds That Always Want To Be The Center Of Attention


Every dog is different, each with his own personality, likes and dislikes, as well as quirks. But we love them all. You will know if you have more than one dog that even two dogs of the same breed can be as different as night and day.


However, some breeds genetically possess traits that make them similar. For example, Rottweilers are known for their protective instincts, whilst Border Collies are known for their herding ability. There are also certain breeds that absolutely love to socialize and be the center of attention… They get jealous if other pets are being petted and will try as hard as they can to always be in the spotlight. Below are the 8 dog breeds that most love to be the center of attention.


1. English Springer Spaniel

These dogs are very playful and eager to please, so they are usually active and love running around and playing games. They are excellent with or without children, and are good with strangers as they just love to be pet.
