What does a German Shepherd do when He sees Me Sleeping! We hope you enjoy this video, subscribe to Rocky! He pokes you a little with his nose to see if you would like to wake up and give him some attention; he suspects that you are not really asleep. But then when you don’t get up, he decides to not bother you, and he lays down next to your feet- facing out, which is what dogs do, they watch the area near your feet- which you can’t see- and face away so that they can guard you. It’s instinctive in some breeds. He is watching over you. He is a good dog- I think he deserves a cookie. This is exactly how my mates German shepherd dog was like with me whenever I slept over at his place after a night out, she was very attentive like a mother would be. Obviously concerned, it shows they care 😉😉 Just too funny! Rocket guards you while you “sleep” but simultaneously pokes you & licks your feet to get you up & give him attention – or feed him if it’s close to that time; such a gem of a GSD! Rocky wants dad to play with him so bad but doesn’t jump on him to wake him up, he lets him sleep. Such a good boy, Rocky!
