Trying to decide...
My wife and I would like to bring a dog into our home, and we have been researching the Havanese. It appears to be a good match for us in many ways, low shedding, good personality, sturdy but not too big, good with kids...
That being said, I have a few concerns, in particular, how good are they with a 3 year old? My son is quite active, but has been around dogs/cats and has always been gentle with them. We also live on an acre sort of out in the country, so we don't have a fence. Is getting a Havanse without having a fence asking for trouble?
My final concern is housebreaking, but from other threads it sounds like its more of an issue with the owner not being consistent than it is with the dog.
Anyway, I realize that no one can make the decision for us, but we are just looking to receive some guidance for those that have experience with the breed. I have read many general details about the breed, but thought it was time to ask a few specific questions.
Thanks for your help,
