Sprockets thread

Just thought I'd start a thread for sprocket
He's about 7months old now and I think yesterday we finally started puppy crazy stage lol
We went to his second adult class and as we walked in he stood stiff and started barking at the first dog he saw never seen him act like that before he settled quickly and focused back on me but was surprised by his first reaction
Also when we got home yesterday and this morning he's very "bitey" hands fingers feet legs pants anything he can reach he was like that a little at 11 weeks when I first brought him home but stopped pretty quickly with treats so looks like we have to relearn a few things
He's an amazing dog so smart we've been working on lots of tricks he almost has roll over down
of course he know all the basics sit stand lay stay (with small distractions and short distance) he also know spin and twirl (spin right and spin left) leave it(so far only with food) take it, and drop it he's great at loose leash walking and coming when called and he knows dance pretty well now (he looks so cute doing it )
I wish I could stay home all the time to train and play with him lol I'm sure if I had more time he would know tons more he's such a quick learner almost knows more tricks than my adult dogs already
It looks like he's changing colors which I wasn't expecting he's getting some brownish colors mixed in with the black it's kinda fun to wonder what he will look like full grown lol
Do havanese ever get cuddly? He's definitely not a huge cuddler so far right before bed he does a little but never on me just next to me and would much rather play than be pet lol
He is such a happy smart sweet little guy makes me laugh every day I want to fill my house with more!
I'm definitely so happy I got him and he's made me fall in love with this breed

If this is Sprocket's thread, we need pictures

Lola was not a cuddler, and didn't like to be held, etc. until she was about ten months when she went into heat. I thought it was because she was in heat,but it stayed. It's still on her terms, but at least a couple times a day, she'll crawl right up on to my lap or chest, if I'm lounging on the coach, and settle right in. What warms my heart is that she does it facing me, looking intently at my face for lord knows what. She just turned two this week, and is really just starting to be a cuddle bug.

Yes, let's see some new photos. Shama has never been very cuddly either, although recently if DH dangles his arm down from the recliner, she'll come sit by his hand and allow him to pet her. She'll do the same thing for me, even letting me rub her belly. Always on her terms, however. I expect she'll get a little cuddlier as she ages . . .

I just got free samples of honest kitchen so gave a little as a topper at dinner to Luna and sprocket they absolutely loved it! sprocket was still licking his bowl 5 minutes later lol he came back to it a couple times just to make sure there was nothing left
I think I'll have to start buying that instead of wet food when I want to give a little topper

So cute!

Perry isn't much of a cuddler (big difference from my 40 pound Dalmatian who was totally a lap dog!). He will 'put up' with a short amount of cuddles if I pick him up. Otherwise he will occasionally come and sit right beside me or on my lap for some cuddles. The only exceptions are mornings (after going out, right before I shower and right after) where he climbs on my lap for cuddles, and usually first thing when we go to bed - he'll come and lay on my chest for some cuddles. the rest of the time he'll come sit by me so that we can play (throw him his raccoon or kong) but he's just as happy sprawled on the floor.

So yesterday sprocket and I went to the park I hadn't been out much in the last week I've been kinda sad with my son and his dog gone so just stayed home and trained all week except for walks around the neighborhood
sprocket started barking and growling at the first dog he saw at the park he did come back to my side when I called him but it's got me a little worried my older dog Luna is leash reactive and I have tried so hard to keep him from being that way
is not socializing for a week really affect him so much?
Is he learning this behavior from my girl? Or is it like a fear period I keep hearing about?
I plan to suck it up and go out tons to hopefully keep this from getting worse
Sprocket is done with his 2nd set of classes we are taking a month off of them and starting back up in July because we will be going to the lake at the end of June and didn't want to miss 2 classes because we are out of town now I'm worried I'll make him antisocial or something by taking a break
Yea I'm a worrier lol

I'll let someone else answer your behavior question. I just wanted to say thanks for the video. I like how his one arm is all white and the other is all black. I hadn't noticed that in the photos!
