Cicero does not like....

CARPET...and I think I'm liking that about him...but not sure. We stay in the den and kitchen which has hardwood floors. We had taken the area rugs out a year ago because my daughter, that comes over each night, started having to do breathing treatments. When we got Cicero the small rug at the door went also because I didn't want him to think it was a pee pad. Now he will not go upstairs or downstairs because he doesn't like carpet. When I take him upstairs he is fine in the bathrooms, but looks like "what the heck" if I put him on carpet - anywhere. He flies to the hardwood floor. Have any of you had a HAV that didn't like to walk on carpet????

That is soooo cute! Actually, Guapo loves carpet because it's the only place in the apartment where he has good traction!

Dale, Cicero is soooooo adorable. Great pictures!

Benji and Lizzie are fine on the carpet and hardwood floors, but they too prefer to play on the carpet for better traction. I don't like the way they skid and slip on the hardwood floors while playing, I am afraid they will hurt themselves.

Best, Poornima

OMG, those pictures are too precious!!!!! Dale, I think you have hit on something though. I never thought about the carpet under their feet being something they might not like. I had a male that, for the most part, stayed on the wood floor. However, at night, he didn't want to go upstair with the other's for bed when he was old enough to no longer be in the xpen, as I bred him. I thought it was the stairs, but now I am wondering if it might have been the carpet. I do let all the puppies run on the carpet, wood floor, brick, stone, cement, wood and grass, before they go to their new homes, but maybe this was it. HUMMMMM, something to think about.

Oh Dale, Cicero is just looking too adorable. I haven't noticed a preference for one type of surface over another, but obviously Cicero has.
