Smile Meet Millie!!!

We finally have a puppy!!! I couldn't be more excited! We have had her for a week now and i think things are going pretty good. We are crate training her and she is doing really well. She has had a few pee accidents on the floor but that is only because i haven't figured out the sign she is giving me when she has to pee. The pooping sign she is very clear about.
She cried the first few nights but that got better every night and now she is sleeping right through.
We are starting puppy classes on the 20th and I can't wait. I have taught her to sit and lay down and we are working on "in your crate" and leave it. She is such a smart puppy!
I was wondering if you could link me to a grooming post. She likes being brushed for the most part but not so much when i brush her back legs. I am clumsy at it though. Not sure how to position her to get the the hard to reach places.
Just wanted to say hi! I'm trying to attach a picture to this but I don't know if it will work.

Welcome! She's adorable!!! There are TONS of grooming threads. Just put "grooming" in the search window, and you'll come up with lots of reading to keep you busy.

Most "serious" Havanese people, like breeders and those who show in conformation, teach their dogs to lie on their sides while being groomed. Honestly, I was a TOTAL failure at that. Kodi fought me, and I gave up. But he was my first Hav, (first dog! ) and I think I felt too sorry for him. With my NEXT one, I will be more persistent, and s/he WILL learn to lie down for grooming!

My alternative was to set up a grooming station with a grooming loop. (which goes around the dog's or puppy's neck like a collar, and holds them in one place) That leaves you both hands free to position and groom the dog. That works fro us still, I can get to all parts of him, and he doesn't need to lie down!

Welcome Sarahdee and Millie. She looks very much as Tyler did when he was a puppy and you can see by his avatar how he has changes. Still has the eyebrows though. Congrats!

Love the marking on your puppy. Reminds me of "Ruthiec's Charlie" they almost have the same pattern.

Here is a YT link that help me with grooming:

Canela use to HATE brushing but now she's a pro, she lays there n sleep thru it.

I'm the opposite from Karen I let Vino (he's my 4th dog, the youngest of the 4) he gets away wit everything he has the excuse of "he's a puppy"

Puppy Vino at 7 mo is still a struggle to brush not perfect but he lets me brush him but it keeps moving on me. I was more strict with Canela grooming ritual maybe that's why she lets me line comb her with no problems.

Anyways Welcome... Hope the video is useful!
