My female havanese, Dionna, does this too. As she has gotten older (she is now 11 months old and weighs 11 pounds), she is doing it less but it still happens. Our inhome trainer, who started with Dionna when she was 9 weeks old, thought it was due to Dionna coming from a bigger litter and/or her thinking food was going to be scarce. She is a bit of a picky eater, too. I have tried to incorporate numerous healthier kibbles in with her current and only now is she starting to be more open to trying.
I feed her at set times and let her finish.....some days she is incredibly slow and some days she does better. She looks a bit small to me, size wise but weight wise I know she is ok. Sometimes she looks very fragile LOL.
The temperment testing that the inhome trainer did came back that she is a more submissive dog. Her confidence is a lot better due to the training and she is a wonderful dog and I have no complaints. I find her quirks funny, actually. Like, she does not like new things sometimes and will do a low "wuf wuf wuf" as if she is alerting us to the 'new thing'.
