yeah Karen .the meeting is done outside the home and like any early socialization is with knowledge that the dog is vaccinated and healthy. It is less than 30 seconds and is simply an olfactory preconditioning for when you bring one of the pups home. Havanese are no more dog social than most breeds. I would guess that I have helped directly or by finding a trainer for people who were having housemate problems whether Hav/Hav or Hav/ other breed no less than 50 times on here over the years. And my guess is there are many more that have issues that don't tell anyone about.
