Hello Again! And best places to bring the havs?

Hello Everyone!
I haven't posted in quite a while!! With school starting up again and everything it has been crazy! Glad to see everyone is doing well! Still catching up on puppy pictures and posts!
Nick and Norah have been good. They got a terribly short haircut at the beginning of summer that they are just finished recovering from! haha
Maddie is also good. To those who don't remember, she is the labrador retriever we added to the gang in May. She is RAPIDLY growing and we love noticing the similarities and differences with the breeds. Both will certainly always hold a special place in our hearts.

I do have a very important question though. Where do you all bring your havanese to get them out? I live in a town more in the country without sidewalks so we usually just walk them around our property. (We live on about 5 acres so there's plenty of room for them to run around.) However we want to try to get all the dogs out more to keep them socialized. We have visitors at the house often and lately norah has been showing some signs of aggression toward them. Her barking has become a daily part of every time the door rings. We bring Maddie to our town's very well kept up dog park all the time which is PERFECT for her since there are so many other big, goofy dogs to run around with that are her size.
We have found though that the dog park isn't a good place for the havs. The big dogs stress them out and they usually get scared or overwhelmed. We have taken to doing small private play dates with other small breed dogs which they seemed to enjoy but I want to be able to bring them out to more public places. Which do you recommend? I know their small size certainly makes it easier. Also, do you think Norah's small aggression is tied to not being taken to enough new places? Any advice would be extremely welcome Thank you!

I included some recent pictures of all of them!

How cute. I would think you could take them to outside shopping centers and just walk the sidewalks. Anywhere where people are so they get used to seeing other people and know they are ok.

Vinny, Lulu, Gabby and Richie too!

Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

I just got my havanese, but I take her everywhere with me. She goes with me to take my girls to school, she went with me to their game today, she goes with me to the coffee shop and sits outside with me...she even goes into the bank with me. I just try to take her with me as long as it is a dog friendly place...but living in California, those places are easy to find!

Thank you for your suggestions! Places like that are definitely harder to find around here but I try to bring them to parks places like that. Mall is a great idea!

I bring the dogs to the grandkids football games. The local ball parks are great even when there's no one there.

Or the beach, another great Fall/Winter place. They can run on their own.
