New puppy to bring home in August

I will be seeing and picking out my new male puppy in a few weeks. He was born from a large litter of 10 puppies! I've decided to name him Benji. It is all quite exciting. Have learned lots from other owners on this forum. Already made a very long shopping list for dog supplies.

For those in the NJ or NY area, can you recommend some good vets around there? Especially when it comes to neutering the dog and allergies to anesthesia, I really would like to use an experienced vet with familiarity of Havanese breed. Maybe there is a good website that rates vets in the USA? Thanks for any info you can offer.

Is there any playdates organized in the NJ area? I really need to socialize my pup, considering most of my friends don't own dogs. And I'm worried about sending the pup to a dog park at this early stage. I probably will take him to puppy classes which should be fun for us both! Anyone can recommend good classes in the area let me know? I know Petco has some, but not sure if I can trust them.

Will post photos as I select and bring my pup home.

Be well.

Congratulations on your new boy!! How exciting for you! I will be having a NJ playdate probably the beginning of October so watch for an annoucement in th next few weeks.
I am in NJ - and have a wonderful vet that I have been with for years. They care and have performed surgery on my three pups, and all my fosters. I love them and feel that they are very familiar with Havs & know that they care for many other Havanese as well.
PM me and let me know where you are, and I can give you their information.

Congratulations! I'm waiting for my puppy too, though I'm closer than you are... I get to pick him up next Tues!!! We're not too close to you... we're in MA, but wanted to say "hi" to another new puppy owner. (servant? slave?<g>)

I can't believe all the stuff I've bought for him, and I'm still in shopping mode. I haven't "nested" like this since my first son was born!<g>

Congratulations! You have really worked hard to do your reseach and homework to welcome your puppy into your family and I am very happy that you will soon have your puppy in your arms. Look forward to seeing your Benji.

Good luck!

Best, Poornima

St. Hubert's in Madison NJ has an excellent dog training program. Where in NJ do you live?

updates on Benji

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Arlene: I don't know about Madison, but I live in North NJ about 30 mins from NYC. I heard they allow dogs in the shops in NY so that would be fun to experiment....

Everyone: I'm quite excited and nervous as the date draws closer to when I will pick up Benji. I finally got all the supplies that I think he will need. I've recently got his 6 weeks old photo to share.

How do you transport your dog via car? I have a crate, but it's on the large size so I use a divider but not sure if it would fit in the front passenger seat. I also have a harness for car to use, and also bought a carrier for vet/errand trips as a crate is just way too heavy to carry around. And did anyone use a regular purse or handbag to carry their dogs? Is it safe? Some of these carriers are very pricey, I might as well use one of my purses to carry the pup around.....like the celebrities!

I'm sure to have more questions once he's here.
