Writing Instructions on Havanese care!

LOL!

Help me out, ladies and gents!

WE are leaving on a cruise next week, and I am writing instructions to Gucci's
"babysitters", who are absolutely WONDERFUL people, and they *adore* Gucci.

Gucci LOVES them, I think she can *sense* they sincerely adore her and are dog people. They don't own a dog right now (they lost their dog of 14 years last year, so they are dog people, but are still recovering from that)

I am in the process of writing up "Instructions", which include things like eating, going out to potty, walking, etc.

BUT..is there anything else I should include about Havs, besides their penchant for following you to the bathroom and shredding toilet paper?

Suggestions?

I don't want to forget anything!

I swore I was going to keep this simple, but they may end up with a darn novel. lol

Oh and...

I really think I should cut more hair from her bum, I don't want them to have to deal with butt baths, but *tear*.....

I'm SOO scared to do that.

What if she gets made fun of at Nationals? lol How to trim that up without it looking stupid? help!

Kara, I would personally make sure they have the cash for a taxi should the need arrise to get Gucci to the vet and the car dies. Second, I'd beg them to please do the butt baths. I know it's not pleasant, but promise them a night on the town at your expense. It's just part of caring for a Havanese - so don't trim that lovely girl of yours. If she was a Maltese, I'd say try your hand at a perfectly groomed butt (they like bullseyes ) but since she's a Hav, try and leave it alone except for a sanitary trim. Just my two cents.

Kara, I've been thinking about when we take our fall trip and may leave Cicero with my daughter. I told her I would make a thread in the coffee shop and title it "Cicero and Sitter" (put the opening post explaining) and she could ask any question she needed and would get an answer!!

No, I wouldn't do a butt trim either. If they have had a dog for 14 years, I'm sure they know how to handle that. BTW - I have a powder box filled with baby powder and Cicero's own powder puff inside - I tap his bottom every few days when I brush and it helps the poop to slide off. I've only had 3 'little messy' incidents since we got him. Of course, you can sprinkle from the bottle, just easier with puff.

Maybe explain face wash for eye buggers daily. But she can ask any question here and I'm sure get an answer and feel secure knowing she has the help if needed.
Hard leaving our furbabies, isn't it?

Kara,

You've gotten some good advice here so I'll just say have a wonderful vacation. I'm sure Gucci will too. Great idea to have them check in with the forum in case there's anything they want/need to know. Wouldn't be at all surprised if they got a dog after this.

Hav a wonderful time on vacation!

- I would just let them know Gucci's little habits, and how her day goes (like when is she most likely to nap, good time to give treats)

- that this is a very smart breed.

safe return! kisses to Gucci.
