Thinking of getting another...

I want a friend for Teemo, someone for him to play with when everyone is busy/not around, but not sure whether I can handle the work load. Does Havanese like to be around other dogs? Or he is fine by himself?

Thanks!!!
Emi

I would only get another unless you're ready.

Just remember a puppy is a LOT of WORK! For the first year at least! Sometimes that first month or so may be rough because you current Hav is going to teach that puppy some manners. So be prepared!

I'm also a little worry that Teemo is going to bully the new ones.

How is Teemo around other dogs? Does he like to play with them? Some dogs love the company of other dogs and some do not.

You may also want to consider an older dog if you do not feel you are up to going through the puppy phase. I adopted Riley when he was one so he was already housebroken, etc. and it was a lot less work. Truth be told, Piper was fine being an only dog but Riley LOVES other dogs and he is very happy to have a sister. Piper is fine with him now but there was definitely an adjustment period for her.

I feel much better about leaving them home now that they have each other as company.

new ones? Generally this works itself out . , especially if your guy is young.

When I walk him or take him to dog beach, he just wanted to run/walk by himself. He runs away when other dogs come at him. When other dogs walk by my house he would barked at them. Well he barks at everything and anything that come near our house until we pick him up. My neighbor has 5 dogs that are always running in the backyard. Everyday Teemo would run out and look at them through the fence for a bit. He once tried to dig a hole to go over lol. I guess he is friendly once he has been around another pet/person long enough but not the first couple days.
I'm thinking of getting a 4,5 months + as well. I'm leaning toward another male Havanese but not sure how 2 males work out esp when Teemo is very alpha.

If you are going to get another older Hav, make sure you meet and greet the new Hav to see how they will get along with each other. I would think a new puppy and an older Hav are going to be totally different.
