Non Velcro Dogs: These are the 10 breeds of adorable dog unlikely to stick to thie owner like glue - including the loving Jack Russell ๐Ÿ•

Are you looking for a dog that will be perfectly happy amusing themselves rather than sticking to you like glue? Then here are are few breeds that should top your list.

A huge number of us decided to welcome new puppies into our homes in the last couple of years โ€“ Kennel Club figures show dog ownership soared when the pandemic hit and post-lockdown demand for four-legged friends remains high.

There are a whopping 221 different breeds of pedigree dog to choose from, alongside numerous crossbreeds, so thereโ€™s plenty of thinking to do before you select your familyโ€™s latest addition.

Before setting your heart on a particular breed itโ€™s important to realise that different breeds have very different personalities and attributes.

Some pups hate to be separated from their owners for even short periods, affectionately known as โ€˜velcro dogsโ€™, and need constant attention, approval and entertainment.

So, here are the 10 most independent breeds of dog.
