Hola, Rick Ricardo here. I love almost all peoples and doggies. But when I meet a new people, I am cautious and I like to investigate them for a minute or so before I give them the BIG Havanese welcome - jumping around,
crouching on my front paws, and then stand on my hind legs so they will pick me up and I can give them besos on their faces.
I was socialized at an early age, so I feel comfortable around peoples and other doggies and lots of distractions. Loud noises don't bother me. I LOVE riding in the shopping cart at Home Depot, Petco, and Petsmart. I stand at the front of the cart, like the captain of my ship, and greet everyone who passes by. Everybody wants to know, "THAT is a cute dog
, what kind is he? Can I pet him?" And I lick their hand to say "Si, senor!" This big, bearded, tattooed, motorcycle guy in leather asked if he could pick me up and Popi said, "sure." He picked me up so gentle and held me against his face and I gave him besos. He had fur on his face just like mine....kewl.....and had some delicious smelling leftover on it! Guy said to Popi, "can I buy him?" Popi said, "No way, Jose." Muchas gracias, Popi
I think your doggie will be fine with continued socialization in public places, patience, and maybe an occasional stay at a doggie day care. But all doggies are different and maybe your doggie just wants to be with you more than anyone else.
besos, Ricky Ricardo
