Space for puppy
Hi everyone! I am new to the community and hoping to get a dog soon, just doing my homework first! I need your input, please:
Our (my husband and me) apartment is small. 400 sq/ft. That might be generous. It's a studio apartment, with one large main room and a separate kitchen and bathroom. My husband thinks it's too small for a dog. (He's worried about smell mostly I think, but just also the fact that we already live in a small space, and I want to add a dog to it.) The great thing about our place though is that we have a nice, pretty big yard, which is rare for Los Angeles apartments. What do you guys think about space for a Havanese (and its people)?
Also, I've seen that some dogs like being crated at night... do any like being crated if they are alone during the day? My husband is working from home right now but he will likely need to leave the house sometimes during the day.
