New Hav Mom Intro

Hi,
I am a new Havanese owner and am so excited to have found this forum. Our puppy, Teddy, is almost 6 months old. He is so smart and also a bit mischevious. He learned to ring a bell to go out very quickly and now also rings the bell whenever he wants 'service', e.g., breakfast, attention, what have you! He still has accidents sometimes - decides not to ring the bell and just pee on the floor...I'm trying not to get discouraged by this as I'm learning it takes a while to fully house train these guys.
I'll post a picture of Teddy soon - of course we think he is just the cutest!

Hi there and

Teddy sounds like a free spirited, entertaining Havanese!! They will eventually bore with the ringing the bell excessively..I know its hard to work through the whole'newness' of it all to them and incessant ringing, but it is worth it as far as housebreaking goes.

Some do take longer to housebreak, especially singletons that don't have a pack to help teach them, but they do get there

Can't wait to see pictures! We LOVE those here as you can probably tell, lol

Welcome to the forum! Looking forward to seeing pictures of your little Teddy. He sounds like a normal Hav - ringing the bell "just because" LOL Abby sometimes rings it when she's ready to eat, too!

Welcome Teddysmom! Hope you will post pictures soon. We love to see pictures! Rikky went through the "service" stage with his bell, but now that has eased and he only rings when he really has to go out or when our older dog or miss kitty are at the door to come in.

Welcome, Teddy and Teddys Mom! This is a great group and a great place to share and learn. Aren't these Havs the greatest?? It is also a place where you won't be judged for obsessing like some 'outsiders' may judge you. Last week, on our vacation, I was told by my Dad that I had a 'pampered' dog. Oh, man, if he only knew the half of it.
