So happy to hear others with "rescued" havanese!
So happy to hear others of you that have had rescues from the Havanese org. We have had Barney for 5 weeks now and the ONLY problem we have encountered is his potty training. He is now 19 months old and can go for 3-4 days and be wonderful, and then, BAM, he pees somewhere in the house. I am using Nature's Miracle and just stopped by our local Oreck store and was told that their enzyme product is even better, so bought some and will try it!
Many dog behaviorists have responded to my questions with the fact that this breed is impossible to completely train and they are never trustworthy like larger breeds. We have always had goldens and decided this was the time to help out a pup in need and when we got the chance to have a havenese, we jumped at the chance. He is very fearful and jumpy, but is showing signs of improvement every single day and now, when asked if he has to go out to potty, he actually has begun barking a yes!
He does seem to go more often than I would think necessary...3 or more poops at day! He is eating Innova with a TBSP of canned food mixed in (cause this is the only way he will eat at all)...any thoughts you could share with me?
p.s. The lady at Oreck said the enzyme cleaners need to stay on the spot and wet for 24 hours or more to really work. Also, black lights can be purchased cheaply at Home Depot or Targets...
