Why am I afraid?

I'm going on vacation and I am having my brothers friend watch my pup and he came over to my house to get to know my pup. then he said "I can wait to have you sleep with me on my bed" and I am afraid that if I don't get through to him about putting him in his crate when he goes to bed he will become attached to him and then not be attached to me. what should I do?

He's just a puppy ! They learn and forget fast. He will be so happy when you get home that you will be in tears. He knows who his master is. Try to talk to your pup-sitter and tell him, please don't spoil him too much. He'll be waiting for you when you get home and everything will be fine. He knows you're his master. He loves you!

it's your dog. tell him he has to put him in his crate or else you'll find someone else to watch the dog.

the thought of losing something that you love can be unbearable. how long are you leaving your pup with him? if it's not for too long I believe he will be fine. I left my 9 week old kitten with my neighbor for 2 months and he still remembered me. (:

Scary thought, tell him, if you are not putting him in his kennel I will find another dog sitter. Also don't be afraid your dog will never forget you, I left my dog with my mom with a week and thought that it would love her more than me, but when I came back se peed in excitement to see me. So don't be worried unless your puppy doesn't love you.

If you want him in the crate tell him you want him to be in the crate at night. I wouldnt worry about him forgetting you though. I have had to do that a few times with my puppy and even though she becomes attached to them too she goes crazy for me. If me and me friends she are attached to are all at my house she still hardly even leaves my side so I wouldnt worry.

He knows who you are!!! He won't forget you and get attached to your friend! He might like your friend but your his parent and he knows that!!! It'll be ok. Go on your va- ca and have fun

The issue really isn't that he will bond with him and forget you. That won't happen. I leave my dogs at my mom's when I need to and they get VERY SPOILED while there. Yet every time I come for them I get nothing but LOVE! Your bigger concern is the dog not being put in the crate is a break from routine and training, and can make it hard for you to get them to sleep in the crate again when you get home.
