I must admit that I've had to work through several minor issues with Gracie on the agility course, but I think it is primarily due to my rookie handling skills. My trainer was very helpful too and has been spot on, so we've moved past the issues. For example, at one point several months ago, Gracie wanted switched to what I call a pay-as-you-go plan. She'd do one contact, then she would hold me hostage for a treat. All my classmates thought she was SO CUTE. Ha, the little stinker, Trainer had me put her on the NILIF plan for several weeks and she stopped being a diva. The past month it's really come together and we got our first title (3Q's) in May. We just started competing in March.
In general, I have to say anyone who has worked with the Havanese breed would not say they are stubborn. English Bulldogs, yes. Havanese, no, IMHO.
