I highly suggest socializing your dog more if you feel it's being a baby. I absolutely love going to a dog festival or any outdoor festival. It's best fir socialization! There are adults, children, noises, weird things, smells, and other dogs. It is perfect!

Without having more specific information on the behavior that's being displayed, I would say that the dog needs either more discipline, independence or socialization. Dogs really depend on rules and boundaries to guide their behavior, so if they're used to getting away with anything but then you all of a sudden say "no" or limit their freedom, they're going to be very upset. If your dog is being overly dramatic during interactions with other dogs or people, it may just need more exposure. Imagine a sheltered child that's never told no, never has to share and always lives a very pampered lifestyle...he/she isn't going to deal well with anything that's not within its very comfortable, isolated routine.
