When I was first married, we had two dogs. After that we both swore that we would never have another dog again. Today I realize most of the problems were "US". Through a networking group I am in, I met the most wonderful trainer! I would tell him, if we ever would get a dog, but we never will, he would be the first I would call. Well, two years ago I was investigating dog breeds. I loved everything I read about the havanese and decided that is the dog I want. I have customers and piano students in and out of my house all the time, so it was important that he is trained, especially not to jump on everyone. So, within 1 week of getting Kobi, the trainer was here. That was the best decision I have ever made! At 21 months old, Kobi is the most wonderful dog!! When people come to my house, I tell him to sit, he whimpers, because he is just dying for the attention, but he won't move until I tell him he can. Sometimes I never tell him he can, because some people don't want to be jumped on. I am in the process of trying to get him to sit when they pet him but he gets so excited. I could never have achieved this without the trainer. I now recommend a trainer to anyone getting a new dog. But, the training is only as good as the mom and dad. It isn't always easy, it takes discipline and structure, but it is all soooo worth it! He says there is never a dog too old or mean that he can't train. I also realize it was "ME" getting the training more than Kobi. Hope this is some help.
