I can't believe I'm posting here we don't even have our puppy yet. We get him Feb 18 very excited. I will post a introduction soon and I have lots of questions.
We had a Brittany and a trainer had us start the off leash And stay at the same time. We would use her leash and tie a long rope to it. We would start with short distance. Sit stay come treat. We would keep getting longer distance and would control her with the rope. We stopped with the rope when we got out 30-40 feet but she learned quickly and I trusted her to come on command I most every situation. I don't know how that translate to a Havanese but I will soon find out.
