Umm no, I really enjoyed my puppies youth, loved it.

Not sure if you already do, but you might want to consider using a crate.

You should also start leaving the house. Start by leaving for 15 minutes and then return, making sure you leave and return with no excitement, just make it casual, and gradually increase your away times to up to a couple of hours.

It is important to start leaving and returning to allow puppy to get used to you coming and going as then there may be less change of separation anxiety and you won't feel as if you have to be home all the time.
