New here

I’m Molly, and I’ve had my 9 week old Hav puppy Hashtag (Hashie) for two days. She’s so small compared with my Labs of yore. My only potential issue is that she cries when I leave the room, though my home is still new to her. It’s hard not to go to comfort her but I want to train her, not have her train me. (She does stop crying after a little while.) She’s smart and spunky, but so far she’s not as hyper as most puppies I’ve seen (typical Havanese.)

It is very wise of you not to give in to her pleas for you to come back. Its very important for her to learn to self-sooth and be independent part of the time, even though you ALSO want her you be your loving companion! It is best for BOTH of you!

Sometimes Havanese puppies are a little quiet when they are VERY young, and become more rambunctious when they hit 16-20weeks!

Ignore the cries. Just leave her often for a minute or two as often as you can. Maybe try using the same words, I usually say whenever I leave, "I'll be back soon", very casually. Even if it is for a minute or a couple hours, same words.
Mine was a Velcro dog for a long time. I couldn't leave his sight for a second. He'd cry, then bark and howl. Even if it was me going to the garage for 2 minutes. He'd be at the door. Now he lays in his bed and waits quietly.
The words become like a command like sit.

Thanks to both of you for the encouragement. I feel welcome. Havaneses are “a new breed” for me, even though I did a ton of research before I decided on a Hav. I am thrilled with the little girl I have. I hope she’ll be happy too.

Welcome! Only give her attention when she's quiet. She'll learn. Please keep us posted, and post some photos when you can. Really cute name!

Welcome ! The only other dog we had before Skye came to us was a big guy (125 lbs.). So there are some adjustments to make . These little guys can't carry in the groceries or carry a bucket of gardening tools around the back yard. But they sure can fill a home with love and joy!! One thing I did learn early on is that it helped to get down to his level during when he was so tiny. His early training went much faster when I was down on the floor and not towering over him.
