Since I'm a first time puppy owner, I thought it would be nice if one of our breeders here would share a list of the different stages and milestones to expect in a Havanese puppy. I think that would help me (and other newbies too) to feel more prepared. I know there are no guaranteed time frames for the different stages but a gross estimate is fine with me
I'd love to know about the big phases depending on the puppy's age and how long the last, incl. nipping, biting, teething (when does it start/end), stranger anxiety (I know in kids it starts around 9 mo. and peaks around 12-15mo.), blowing coat, 'terrible 2', 'teenagerhood', potty regression, end of growth, 'official' end of puppyhood, etc.
If a similar thread exists already, I'm sorry for starting a new one and would love to be referred to that thread! Oh and I know there are probably books and websites about this, but I thought it would be nice to have it here for future first-time-Havanese-puppy-owners.
