I live in Colorado Springs and take Rosalita to Puppy classes at All Breed Rescue & Training. We wear masks and are at least 6 feet apart. One of the trainers knows Havanese well. Her parents raise them and she showed them. She said Rosie is smart and confident, so much so that she was moved from the small size puppy group to the big size puppy group. She was intimidating the other small puppies with her play so my 6.5 pound puppy graduated with a pit bull, German Shepard, and a retriever. She had a blast playing with them during socializing time. She's not afraid of anything.
I really appreciate all the resources posted here because even with the class we're now in, she is getting hard to deal with. Maybe watching some of these videos will help me. Or maybe you all can help.
She sleeps in late with me and we go for a walk around noon. She'll nap and play off and on during the afternoon but in the evenings she goes nuts. She barks at us for no apparent reason, pulls on my clothes...socks, sleeves, etc and nips my arms and legs. As I stand at the kitchen sink she grabs my leg with her front legs and bites the back of my thighs. When I'm sitting down she grabs whatever we have on tables...masks, coasters, paper towels, napkins, papers, etc. I play fetch with her and do some training but as soon as we stop she goes back to her irritating behavior. I call her Cujo.
She'll be 6 months Dec 2; is this the adolescent I've been reading about? Or am I doing something wrong? HELP please.
