Is it okay to hold/lift a grown up Coton de Tulear?

by Rosa
(Denmark)

I have a beautiful young lady called, Samantha. She is 2½ year old. I am wondering if it would be okay to hold/lift her. She REALLY enjoys to be held, but i am worried that it might be harmful to her back or her leg or anything it could be. I might be at little mothered but i just want to be on the safe side. I hope someone can help me.


Greetings, the worried dogmom...

Holding your dog NEW
by: Bentley's Mom

Coton s by nature are very lovable....some may be standoffish, but they will make this known before you attempt to hold them or carry them around. That's why we consider our fur babies as lap dogs or lap warmers....keep snuggling.

COTONS BEING HELD NEW
by: Pat

My dog, Rhylie loves to be held. She'll come to me and stand on her back legs and lift her arms up to me to pet her. She is 2 and a half years old and I have picked her up and held her since the first day I got her when she was 2 months old. I usually pick her up under her front legs or under her belly. She is a tiny little thing-7 pounds, but sturdy. She's a little lover and loves being held all the time.

Holding dog NEW
by: Sharon & Jasmine

My Jasmine is 5 years old and I always pick her up and hold her. I pick her up around her stomach area or under her front arms. I actually carry her like a baby. My neighbors come over to visit her, bring treats, take her for walks. She stands up on her back legs and walks over to anyone she sees. As long as you are gentle, and your dog likes being picked up there should be no problems that I know of.
