New Havanese Owner- New To Forum
Just want to say hello everyone from Bayou Chicot,La. Brand spanking new Havanese puppy owner who is a little parti-white/chocolate male who was born on oct. 15, 2006 and brought home from breeder Dec. 10th.
Hoping to learn as much as I can from everyone as this is my families first puppy in over 20 years since myself and my wifes brittany passed away. Between the wife, My 14 year old boy and 17 year old daughter hounding me about getting a Havanese puppy as they had seen them on the dog shows, I didn't even know what a Havanese was LOL. So I been researching the breed for about a little over a year and happened to stumble across a breeder who raised Havanese in south Louisiana and who had just had a beautiful litter and I lucked out and got the most beautiful little spoiled brat in the litter I think LOL. The kids have named him Derian.
Since picking him up monday night, He so far has not had any potty accidents in the house. I take him out about every two hours or less and soon as he bolts out the door he usually runs across the patio straight to the yard and relieves himself as I give him alot of praise. Being on vacation has helped alot so far with working on housebreaking. I just hope he is not hard to housetrain.
Not problem free however LOL. Wife and kids laugh, Because I bought a crate, But once you place him in the crate, He will whine and yap no matter what puppy toy you give him. Thing that is hilarious is I paid over 50 bucks for the crate, But noticed he started whining and standing up placing his front paws on a cheap plastic storage container which is just as big as the crate inside. So I placed his bedding in the container and low and behold he lays down and goes to sleep LOL. Go figure LOL. So now we end up just moving the container to the bedroom to the living room and when he gets tired he starts whining and scratching at the container to get in. Course this is only during the daytime hours. At night when we ready for bed, He whines and yaps to the cows come home LOL. We end up just placing him in the bed with us and he cuddles up and goes to sleep. When he wakes up, He starts either pulling the blankets off you or comes and licks your face to wake you up LOL. Usually about 5:30-6:00 am every morning like clockwork and I get up to go outside with him and he goes right in yard and does his business.
Well hope to pick up all the info on this breed as possible from everyone. Soon as I can will take some photos and post one as his avatar.
