Hello, everyone! I posted this in the puppy forum, but thought this question was relevant to everyone, so I'm posting here, too. Sorry for any annoyance.
We are future Havanese owners. Upon deciding to add a new family member, we researched dog breeds to no end and decided on the Havanese. Then came the search for a reputable breeder. We found a wonderful lady in southern Ohio (we're in central Ohio) that has been breeding Havanese for 15 years. We will be going to visit her in a couple of weeks. She has a male and female (former show dogs) that she breeds. She is hoping to breed in July, so that means we won't get our new family member until November, but it will be well worth the wait, I'm sure.
Our current household consists of my husband and I, our three children (2 daughters ages 11 and 9, and a 7 year old son), my 14 year old cat, and 4 parakeets.
Ok -- so now to the question. Well, really a poll
of sorts. I have been doing a lot of research on different potty training methods. The breeder said she litter trains them from the beginning, so I will probably stay with that method. But I am wondering what potty training methods you all have gone with? Bell, potty pads, litter, a combination of methods? Is there any reason I should not
litter train? Any and all opinions will be *much* appreciated.
Thanks, everyone! Have a great weekend!
