I've been keeping my puppy in a playpen except for supervised play times. During the times she is out, I watch her 100% of the time. I tell her no when she does something like grab a cord in her mouth or begin to pee. I do this every single time I let her out. There is never any time she is allowed to do a bad behavior without correction. Eventually puppies do learn the rules but it can take months. My lab was 8 months old before he was able to reliably control his urges to chew my things, and over a year old before I was able to leave him un-crated in the house when I left (he was fine at that point being free roam when I was in the house, but the anxiety of being left alone made him chew things). Not sure how long it takes with Havanese, though. Like you, I've just started on this journey!
