New Older Puppy

We got a 5 month old Havanese puppy about three weeks ago! Its our two young boys' first dog. We are all so in love.

I'm trying to figure out grooming. I don't want it long but i don't want it too short. Is that a teddy bear cut??

Welcome!

I'm not sure what that would be called. Maybe just a longer puppy cut?

Would love to see pictures!!

This.

But when it comes time for a haircut, the first time I got Trooper cut, I held a ruler to him and held out his hair, decided how long I wanted it and that's what I told the groomer. Even if you figure out what all of us would call it, your groomer may have an entirely different idea of what a "puppy cut" or a "teddy bear cut" is.

Thanks! The ruler trick is a great idea.

Yes.. we are socializing. She is great with dogs and people. I have three households with two or more dogs we are visiting weekly. She is around people all the time since i take her every where. THe one thing we are having issues iwth is walks..she is afraid of parked cars and bags of leaves. strange! Also, doing classes with her after the holidays.

I am still figuring out how to load a picture! Mine are too big.
