    Cane Corso obsessed with wife

    Hi, I got my cane Corso puppy, Enzo, at 8 weeks of age and he is now nearly 2 years old. I work from home so I spend most of the day with Enzo and he spends the majority of the day laying in his crate or by the door that enters the house from the garage (waiting for my wife to get home).

    Enzo seems extremely lazy and possibly sad throughout the day until my wife comes home and then he becomes extremely excited. When my wife is home he is like her shadow. He follows her everywhere she goes and pretty much ignores me. I'm confused because I do all of his obedience training and take him on all his daily walks. He is extremely obedient for me but still tends to be best friends with my wife, which I admit is a bit annoying considering how much time I spend with him.

    Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to get my dog to start showing a bit more interest in spending time with me when my wife is around?

    Any advice is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    - Sam

    My wife feeds him in the morning and I do in the evenings.

    You are freely available to him so he doesn't have to impress you :)

    Does he like to play? If so, you can probably turn his attention onto you with a good game.

    It's not unusual for dogs to, have their "special" person, Heiko is a real daddy’s boy and sticks to him like Velcro, although he is responsive to the both of us ,his heart is still ultimately with his dad despite the fact that I have actually spent more time with him.

    As long as he listens to you and does what you ask of him without much of an issue, I wouldn't worry about it.
