Coming out of the shadows...

Hi! I don't even have a Havanese yet. I'm hoping to buy a puppy from Pam & Tom King - - sometime in 2023! (Now THAT is planning ahead!)

In the meantime, I visit here and watch Simpawtico, Kikkopup, and some other positive reinforcement trainers on YouTube.

I really enjoy reading your conversations and seeing the pics of your beautiful fur babies!

Hi, Scharpfac!

Welcome to the forum.

I am in almost the same boat - no Havanese yet, but hoping for one in the next few years.

Is 2023 a retirement year or something?

Yes, we retire in December 2022. Our commuting days are too long to have a dog alone all day. So I get my dog fixes in by reading things here and watching those aforementioned YouTube videos.

We'll probably move around the same time. Once we get settled into our new home, I would like to get our puppy. I have fallen in love with the Starborn Havanese puppy kindergarten. I feel like Pam and Tom raise their puppies the way we raised our son!

Are you also waiting to retire?

I am waiting to move as well. (Already retired.) My current home is not very well-suited to raising a puppy - a three level townhome, so lots of stairs, and not much safe outside space. I'm slowly getting it fixed up to sell - again, not ideal for a puppy with workmen in ans out, paint, and so on.

I set my heart on a Havanese years ago when I was working and, like you, decided that being away from home so much would not be fair on a dog.

Welcome you two Hav wannabes. Great planning by both of you. You sound like great puppy parents.
