Toby was raised in a home with my parents, grandmother sister and myself. He bonded significantly with my mom, sister and me. But it was never a question that he was my dog and that he favored me most. They can bond with multiple people but it is a matter of how strongly they bond to each person.

Max bonded with me most at first but as I have to go to work each day he spends all day every day with my hubby and now seems to love us both quite equally. When we watch tv at night he tends to choose to sit on me rather than him which I like I do feel quite lucky that he loves us both as I had read about chis being one person dogs before we got him.

Simcha is my wife's absolute shadow. However, he still does show a lot of love for me. It's just the two of us (old folks) at home these days.

Taco and Chalupa are both my hubbys. Taco will sit with me and snuggle. Nami is strongly bonded to me already. She will only sit with me, will only approach hubby if he has a treat lol

Angel is pretty much 50/50 with me and my husband. BUT, not many dogs will give up the opportunity for food! If my husband didn't always give him treats (people and doggie ones) - I think it would be me!

Bella and Lina are Daddy's little girls. They are "in love" with my husband and adore him (the little stinkers). They love me as their Mommy and give me almost equal time with my husband. However, when the girls don't feel well or are afraid, they follow me everywhere and want only me to hold them and comfort them. They will go out for walks with either my husband or me, but they prefer both my husband and I to walk them together as one family. They will go on our vacations only when both my husband and I are in the car together, otherwise, they will whine if they think one of us got left behind.

In my opinion, they

Bond to one person via invisible umbilical cord ....

Love a few select others under their roof ....

Tolerate everyone else that's usually around on a regular basis, especially if Mom shows it's ok to ....

Be wary of complete random strangers regardless of what Mom indicates, until they've sussed it out & made up their own little minds.

My 4 are brilliant in that they're completely self contained in their own little pack. I can have one on one time with any of them and none of the others will dare push in, whinge or whine, not get jealous, not try to muscle the others out of the way etc. I can separate them into couples no problems, I can have one take a nap with me whilst everyone else is banished, no problems.

It's been my experience with Chi's that it is down to individual dog's personalities in everything, much more so than how they're brought up, that is secondary. By this, I mean they don't conform like other dogs do i.e. my Mastiffs are like perfect, obedient, robotic clones in comparison, they adore & guard their people equally.

The Chi's are perfectly well behaved & obedient when THEY want to be and that's about 97.8% of the time, but there's always that wee bit of rebellion goin' on just to keep us on our toes

Odie loves so many people, and gets so excited to see everyone. However, she is slightly more bonded to me, but that's just because I spend the most time with her. I don't think she necessarily "picked" me.
