Don't worry, when your dog reaches the 70+ lbs mark, he won't be carrying it around like a baby or letting it jump up anymore
I don't think he'll ruin it, but I do think the dog will do better with more consistency.
If you are to do protection work with your dog, it need to be able to tell the difference between a friendly stranger/normal life and a real threat.

Your husband will find out on his own how to earn respect from your pup. When your pup blows him off and he finds himself nagging, "comeherecomeherecomeherecomehere", your hubby will start paying attention to what YOU are doing. Much easier to have him learn that on his own, then for me to correct him.
I am not the 'alpha' in my pack. I am the leader.

|misslesleedavis1||I can sorta relate, my SO treats shiloh like a baby..we are not on the same page when it comes to her and just her. I dont know what it is but he treats her like a baby too, down on the ground snuggling, feeding her off of his plate similiar stuff only shiloh is over 3. I dont think she has any respect for him honestly, its going on 2 years and she growls at him occasionally. It can be very very upsetting when i make a rule that makes sense, like DO NOT feed her or the other 2 at the table, and he goes on to feed her at the table, but the difference is he will pick a fight with me if i say something, he is in a rush to defend his actions and hers like when she growls at him, its "poor baby doesnt want a snuggle hug", makes me sick. Yesterday he had to call her for 15 minutes straight to get her to come to him, i had no words for that one, i just stood there and watched as he made a total ass out of himself., served him right.|

It's not going to be cute when that dog is an adult.

"She's smart enough to know Daddy isn't going to enforce the rules LOL."
when you have two or more sets of basic rules it makes for frustrating times training the dog . Sabotage .
confusing for the dog who will test to see what it can get away with .

She's smart enough to know Daddy isn't going to enforce the rules LOL. He's just playing with her, bonding, she's a puppy and should be experiencing all things that she can in a positive way.
I have a dog who was very outgoing as a pup, so much so that he encouraged my older female to be more accepting of friendly strangers. As an adult, he's very capable of discerning between friendly stranger and stranger danger. He no longer has to say hello to everyone he meets, saves his attention for true friends and his family.
