Q. My dog has heavy panting she's very clingy wants to sit in weird areas or right on top of me.

A. If this is unusual behaviour for your dog then it is worth having her checked by your vet to ensure it isn't pain related. If not it could be anxiety. You can try pheromone diffusers or collar such as DAP.
