How much?

I've been wondering lately how much of Havanese behavior is guided by Breed and how much is just thier individual personalities??

Hello again, this is an interesting question and quite subjective. The whole Nature versus Nuture topic is interesting to say the least. Here's an article that you might find interesting. http://www.dogstardaily.com/training...-view-heredity

But I love this quote at the end of the article " If you want a total dog — an ambassador for its kennel, breed and species — for goodness sakes, groom its temperament as well as its coat."

IDK, That is so variable around here... There are a few havs that don't shred, maybe 1 or 2 that don't Run like Hell...but I'd say the breed characteristics are probably more common than not, just from observation
