Beamer going through an off phase...

Soooo, seems like Beamer is going through an 'odd' phase..

He is soooooo needy now! He is whinning and crying more these days..
Also, the biggest thing is that he has to have my wife and myself in the same room with him all the time!!! If one of us leaves he starts crying.. he does not seem happy untill all 3 of us are in the same room.. lol

Anyone else have this happen?? lol will it pass?!?!

Thanks guys!

Ryan,
This is a new one for me. Could he be in pain? Is he still eating, playing and pooping like normal? Has he had to be alone longer then the norm and is not showing you how he missed you both?

I know this isn't much help for you, but I haven't experienced this myself, nor have I heard any of my puppy buyers have this happen, to my knowledge anyway.

My two don't like for us to be in separate rooms either. They won't settle at night till everyone's together. It's annoying, but they don't whinge, they just get the wanders and won't settle.

I do find that one of mine is needier than the other - the one I got first and had on her own for a year. She gets whingy when she's outside or if I'm ignoring her and she wants attention.

I'm not sure if this helps! I hope Beamer gets over it.

I do not have any problems with Jillee but we have two other dogs as well so she is not alone at all. I do notice that when she wants to play or have some attention she will paw at my leg and whine......so maybe he needs a playmate?????? I know I am bad sorry just worth a try!!!!!

Ryan, we had a very mild version of this with Jasper when he was -oh- I would say 8-12 months. Jas has always been a loner- but when he was younger he would try and sit where he could see both my husband and me. So if I was in the office and my DH in the living room he would lie in the hall to keep an eye on both of us. If one of us moves he was on our heels. He didn't whine or cry though-- DH thinks it might speak to their herding instincts (they were used to herd chickens) Now at the ripe old age of 22 months he could care less where we are-- he knows we are there for him when he needs us.

The other thing to look at- has anything changed in your lives? are you more stressed than usual? Some of these guys are very sensitive to that. I know last year when Michael was getting ready for an 11 day business trip- and we were both stressed about it- Jasper started pooping in our bed at night (he hadn't made a mistake since he was 3 months) the vet suggested he was tuned into our stress and needed the security of his crate. Sure enough he seemed much more settled in his crate and no more problem. So maybe Beamer is tuning into something that is going with you both.

I suspect it is just a phase.




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Hey guys../
No, nothing has changed at all with hius routine or with my wife or myself... He just gets upset when he cannot see both of us.. I know it sounds weird..
This just started about a week ago...

Whe he wants to get our attention because we are ignoring him for more than 2 seconds he will do this..

Walk over to the door of the family room and start hitting it so it will hit the wall and make noise.. he will do this until we go crazy.. lol Every time we try telling him NO.. but it does not seem to help.. I'm sure he is just going through a stage of some sort..

Kathy, No, he is not whinning because he is hurt or in pain... hes just a baby is all.. heheh (maybe we coddle him to much.... )

Hey Ryan...it sound to me like a two year old having a little temper tanturm...How about instead of telling him no...which is attention to him...just ignoring him..

Peace, Love & Havanese

Ryan, I agree with Paige on this one. I think ignoring him is the best way to get him to stop.

I think Beamer is going through MHS himself <BG>

Actually while Dora doesn't do weird atttitudes like this. Isabelle does. She knows our routine for leaving. She will start shaking and acting weird. When she is really bad, she runs out the door or jumps and bites at you. It has been awhile since she has done that though. As to in the same room, you can solve it by moving to LA-our new house is so little, we can't be that far apart

This is not unusual Havanese behaviour .. Yhese dogs are very social and they like to herd us all together .. Both Asta and Tulip used to do this.
Tulip still does it tries to make sure we are all together in the same room - if not off she will go to find you and bring you in ..
Cosmo is the same he wants us all to be together .. He is getting better and he will go off and be on his own for a while but he usually wants us all together..
They do go through various stages of development as well no doubt about it ..
