    DefaultWhen will she want to cuddle?

    <-------My Holly....almost 3 months old and all she wants to do is play, eat and bite! Will she ever want to cuddle? I want to hold her and stroke her, but she only wants a piece of my finger! I'd like to hold her while watching TV, but the only time she is settled...is when she is asleep...and she never falls asleep in our lap.

    thanks for any input~

    I don't think she is going to be that kind of puppy at least for the short term. She sounds very busy. Some puppies and adult dogs are just not the cuddler type.

    I did not have my Lab as a puppy - I am sure that he was just like your girl. Now he is older and is VERY interested in being in laps - but he is 80 lbs.

    Generally, she'll want to cuddle when she's too big to be a lap dog

    I haven't found females to be overly cuddly in general.

    You've just describe my Cooper. He is a 14 week old, 32 pound ball of fire. He is either eating (this only takes minutes), playing, peeing or biting. I do get a couple of minutes each morning right when he wakes up. Keeps me on my toes all the time but I love him dearly.

    Misha was like that as a pup, she´s still not a big cuddler now (she just turned 2) but she loves being petted and scratched and even though she won´t come and cuddle with me, she does it Homer.

    At that age they are more concerned with playing and learning all the world around, but once they get tired she might come and cuddle with you...

    Yeah guess we should be glad they don't weigh more!

    This is how I get puppy cuddle time: I get a NEW rawhide, sit indian style, put the "teeth with fur" in my lap and hold the little rawhide for them while they chew away. Both my labs loved/love this and we both get what we want

    I always wondered if this helped my 1st lab to be so easy going about people touching his bones, food etc. He never feared that something would be taken from him.

    Just an idea- I'm no expert!
