Hardest Part?

In your opinion what do you feel is the hardest part in raising a Havanese puppy?

The hardest part of raising ANY puppy... putting in the (significant) time and effort needed during the first year so that you have a solid citizen member of your family for the next 15!

In that case, having nothing but free retirement time and commitment, I've got the worst of it licked 😊

I agree. Constant attention, time and effort for the first year but they will repay you with love a thousand times over.

The hardest part for me was trying to figure out the best thing to feed my dog. I wanted to feed them the most high quality food I could, but there are so many choices and conflicting information that this turned out to be quite difficult.

Iím currently entering the adolescence phase and itís really trying our patience. Heís chewing everything and anything he can get his mouth on. So our Perfect Puppy is now the equivalent of my brother when he was a teenager. I keep expecting to wake up and heíll be sporting doggy tattoos, dyed hair, and some piercings.

I think it just feels so much harder because he was so amazing as a baby puppy. We had a wheatie before him that was a psycho puppy (we didn't know anything about enforced naps and I think that would have saved us), so we never noticed any difference between puppyhood and adolescence.

But, we just have a bunch of months and we'll have an excellent adult (hpefully).. right in time for a new puppy

I think the hardest part is being consistent in your training of the dog and being dedicated to the time it takes. I was going to say the potty training was the hardest then I got to thinking that it's really the total training of the dog and helping the dog learn to be a good canine companion.
