Bonding with puppy/dog....
I have posted many questions lately, as I am beginning my research on Havanese. As many of you know, I have young children and I am hoping to get a Havanese sometime in the next year or so. I am starting to really like the idea of getting a young Havanese, (under 2 years old) that has been housebroken and is out of the "puppy stage." My husband wonders about "bonding." I have read about the weeks of critical development, early on in a pup's life. I would appreciate any thoughts/comments about a dog/puppy bonding with owners. I know that the dog would have had to have been socialized very well, especially with young children. How easy is it for an "older" pup to bond with a new family?
