Talking First Ever Sydney Havanese Meet & Greet

Havanese dogs are not very common over here in Australia and there was not a Meet & Greet group setup in Sydney, so we had never met any other Havanese owners (other than the breeder of course). Just over two weeks ago I decided to set up a Facebook group page for Sydney Havanese owners so we could get to know each other and arrange some play dates. We now have almost 50 members on the FB group and just last weekend we had 17 Havanese bring their owners along to the park (and a few non-Havi canine family members) so they could play together. It was great to watch the dogs play with each other while we all got to know one another and trade tips and suggestions on a range of topics including food, grooming and of course toys. We had some people travel as far as 130km (about 80 miles) just to join in the fun!

There were a few people who sadly couldn't make it last weekend, and we have had more members join the group since then so our next meetup (should be next month) should be a great one!

I have attached just a few of the many photos that were taken for you to all enjoy.

If there are any other Sydney Havanese owners that find this post and want to meet with the rest of use then search for "Havanese Meet & Greet Sydney" on Facebook (and here is a site for non-FB people) and join us for some great fun!

I'm so sad you didn't post this earlier - Paddington would have loved to come along! I will keep my eye out for the next meet and greet on the non-facebook website.

Wonderful! It's so much fun to touch base with other Havanese and their people in real life!

Love the pictures, especially the one with them all lined up on the fence.

There are quite a few Havanese owners near me, and though I've tried to plan a get-together, including with help of a Florida Havanese group, it hasn't yet worked out.

We would love to have Paddington join us! The group is still only in its infancy and we hae only had one meet up, but everyone had so much fun that there is already talk about organising one for mid September.
What are of Sydney do you live in? Our group members are spread all over Sydney so we are looking at holding events in all different locations each time to try and make it fair ad also easier for those owners who can't always travel to get to them.

I'm in between Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. I love the Naples area, but haven't been there in years. If there were a meet up, I'd be inclined to drive over just to have an excuse.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I, also, loved the one of all the dogs at the fence!

Adorable! I'm a newcomer to Havanese ownership but have already heard so many people respond with confusion - few people know the breed in the US either! Love your pictures and this community you've formed.
