Sorry for not introducing my girlfriend and I! We are in our mid 20s and just got engaged a few weeks ago. We live in Chicago, minutes away from downtown. We had Miko since he was a puppy. In the beginning, we worked from home for a little bit till he got used to the condo. Then we would leave him crated in the morning and my girlfriend would come back from work to stay with him for an hour or so for lunch and crate him till we get back in the evening. He was potty trained pretty quickly (so smart!) and we let him roam freely in the condo. There were definitely tough times but so worth it.
We did alot of research to finally decide on this breed and very glad we did. My girlfriend has severe allergies to EVERYTHING. Since we got Miko, she has to get weekly allergy shots, and we have 2 air filters running all day in the condo. She doesn't mind at all because she loves dogs.
Right now, Miko is blowing coat so it has been a real challenge to groom him. I was looking online on grooming Havanese and stumbled onto this forum. We look forward to contributing and learning more about everyone here!
