  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, We are going to bring our new puppy home mid-July, at 10 weeks. I have been watching tons of YouTubes and reading tons of blogs to prepare. What I really need is some experienced Havanese owners to help we know what I really need for him. Is Blue Buffalo Freedom Puppy a good choice? Should...

    Hi all! I have been doing a lot of research into dog foods lately given the rise of fresh food/raw brands. With my new puppy on the way, I am considering a hybrid diet - my older girls currently eat half Canidae senior formula and half Jinx and are doing well. I am curious if anyone has seen...
  3. Introduce Yourself
    Hey, I was going to post this in the puppy area but apparently I have to do 2 posts here first. So I'll ask my question here. So here's the thing. Halo is now just over 11 weeks and weighs in at ~4 lbs. We've been feeding him about 1/4 cup of food 3 times a day but in over a week he has only...
  4. Introduce Yourself
    Hi! I am new to this forum. I have a 1 yr 3mnth old Havanese, 19.6 lbs. Yup I wrote that correctly! Irie is on the bigger side for Havanese dogs but in excellent shape and very strong :) I have been feeding him Flint River - Chicken Kibble and he loves it! Only problem is Flint River just...

    There has been a recent thread on raw diets and my Darwin's shipment came today so I thought I'd share what it looks like and what the storage requirements are, etc. I have no affiliation and this is not an ad; it's offered for informational purposes. When I initially signed up I was concerned...

    Well it looks like I took things a bit too literally in my attempt to do everything perfectly for our new pup. I have only been feeding him 1/3 c kibble a day (+ some treats). I think I misunderstood the amounts people said with regards to 1/3 x 3 meals a day etc.... also didn't realize from...

    Sorry for bringing this up again, but I need some advice/opinions! Brooklyn got his rabies shots this weekend and the vet freaked me out a little. We choose them because they had great reviews on Yelp and everyone there seems pretty nice so far. They weighted him again and this time (Sept...

    Hi all, I am trying our Havanese to change to adult food since few weeks since he is turning almost a year old now. We have been using Royal Canin mini junior and so far I tried using three different reasonably good quality products (James wellbeloved, Precept plus etc; chicken kibble since he...

    I know it sounds crazy, but a handler that I'm being trained by to show my havanese told me that puppy food is really not that much better than adult food, and that the bone-growth-promoting ingredients in puppy food can actually cause the bones to grow faster than the soft tissue, causing...

    Hi everyone, I was wondering what type of food you use. My pups are on their 4th food in 6 weeks and I think this one is the best. I have even tried the minimal "natural" food. Some made them vomit, loose stools, or they were going constantly. I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks, Trudy

    Dexter used to eat 1/2 cup of food twice a day without problems and now for the past several days he has not eaten all his food. I would guess he is eating about 1/3 cup of food at each feeding. Dexter is not a chow hound and will only eat when he wants to and he is not getting lots of...
