New Owner Here

Hi Everyone!

I just want to say thank you to all the advice you've unknowingly given these past few months as I've lurked in the shadows and soaked up every bit of information I could. My girlfriend and I are taking the plunge this weekend and picking up our first fury friend from Jubolee Havanese up in NH. We've got everything set up and are as prepared as we can be. But one thing I've learned from all of you is to expect the unexpected and get ready for a hectic couple of weeks.

Now what I'm sure you've come for...meet Stanley, our 9 week old Creme boy.

We're picking up Saturday and will be with him for those first 2 weeks before we go back to work full time, with a lunch time visit + puppy day care after his 2nd set of shots.

So any advice for a 1st time dog/Havanese owner? Will keep you posted!

Keep reading, ask questions and ENJOY HIM!!! He is adorable!

There are at least a couple of other Jubolee puppies on the forum, and LOTS in the N.E. area.

Oh, and get him signed up for puppy kindergarten as soon as you can. Are you in NH? If so, All Dogs Gym in Manchester is an excellent training center.

Welcome. What a good looking puppy . He really has dark colored ears. Molly had the (what I call peach ears) but not that dark. Here's some good reading and I 'll be back with a S/A article. Before You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar http://www.siriuspup.com/pdfs/before_puppy_sirius.pdf

After You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar http://www.dogstardaily.com/files/AF...ur%20Puppy.pdf

yeah be careful to introduce departures. A big mistake new owners make is to be home for the first week, and when they go back to work it is a huge shock to the pup. Here's an article on separation anxiety. http://pawsitivedawgs.wordpress.com/...alonetraining/

Welcome. Stanley is SO CUTE!!! You've certainly found the right spot to ask questions & learn all you can. I sure know the people on this forum have been a godsend of info for me & our new furbaby.

Your life is about to be turned upside down for a while! It will seem like Stanley is your entire focus for several weeks. I know that's how it's been for us. But it's the joy of parenthood that makes it all worthwhile. And the puppies are exactly like babies in the way you have to provide/care for/train them. So worth it!
