I'm still a dog show newbie so I hope others will chime in, but I've been to two shows and the "spectators" all kind of floated around randomly, they all seemed to be getting a good kick out of it. If anyone is going you might want to find out from them what time the Havanese group will be presenting in the ring so you can at least see them in action. Most don't mind talking about their dog or the breed if you ask, but keep in mind you might want to just observe before or keep the convo light because handlers are stressed out trying to get their dogs ready before they go into the ring. If they don't hear the announcer or have their dog ready for the class, they won't be able to show their dog because the judges will not wait for contestants in order to get through all the dogs in time. Havanese people will be hanging out around the ring they are going in about 30 minutes beforehand, there are many rings so you will need to find out which one it is.
