Can you spoil a puppy by holding them too much? My baby is 8 weeks old and very attached to me. She enjoys everyone else in the family, but it is very clear that I am the one she wants to be with. I have a cage for her that is large enough to have her pee pads on one side and the other side has a blanket and food/water bowls. This is where she sleeps at night and I lock her up in there whenever we all leave the house. This cage is inside of an exercise pen. During the day her cage is always open (unless no one is home) and she is able to go in and out of it and have the extra room in her pen to play and she has a nice little bed out there. We also open her pen door when we take her out to play and are able to closely watch her. Well, it's to the point that I am always scooping her up and holding her. I hold her while I am on the computer, watching tv or anytime I am not walking around doing something. She loves to be held and I love holding her. I even made a sling for her to lay in safely while I am typing on the computer so that she doesn't slide off of my lap and can be up closer to my face. I won't pick her up if she is whining or being noisy. I definitely don't want to encourage that! We also have playtime on the floor with toys but she does spend a huge amount of the day on my lap. So, do you think this is spoiling her?
