  1. Introduce Yourself
    Thanks to everyone here for allowing us to be part of the Community. I am Kathy Hillman and my sweet dog Kippers. Kip is now 15 and in very poor health. These are tough times for us. As I write this she is curled up next to me, my confident, my dear friend, and companion. I chose to sponsor...

    You may remember my nervous participation in the housebreaking threads here. Using the foundation I learned here I applied some modern technology. You can read it here: How I potty-trained my Havanese with an iPhone, a webcam, and a motion detector Look for the RoryCam gif! :-)
  4. Greater New York Havanese Club
    For our NYC winters. Great article on indoor dog toilets. My Cuddles hates to go out in the snow, very useful information here http://betterwords.typepad.com/nikki_knows_pets/2013/11/piddle-place-review-by-nikki-moustaki-nikki-knows-pets.html I had been using puppy pads when I was not home...
  5. Introduce Yourself
    Okay, here is my second post, admitting guilt. I am so excited to see Cuddles when I get home, that I act as silly as she does. Sometimes I get down on the floor with her and share in her enthusiasm. So one of us has self control, but its probably not me. New dog owner? Can't you tell! I...
  6. Training Tips and Advice
    I am at something of a housebreaking crossroads and would appreciate any guidance you might offer. Rory is an eight month old female that had been doggie-door trained by the breeder. I brought her home and am sure I thoroughly confused her, first trying the Potty Training Puppy Apartment and...
  7. Training Tips and Advice
    Hello Everyone! I got a 4 month old female from a breeder in NY 2 months ago. She is the sweetest little dog and gets along great with my 3 kids (5,4,2). She is just starting to get used to the idea of going to the potty outdoors. She was paper trained by the breeder. I was looking into...
  8. Training Tips and Advice
    Hi hav lovers! Apart from the occasional trip out in his crate to meet new friends and family, my boy Olive has been cooped up in my apartment in NYC. Not for long! Today he gets his third round of shots and can finally walk on the city streets! For the past month, we've had him in the...
  9. Training Tips and Advice
    My friend recently rescued a 2 y.o. small dog (not a Hav). He's doing better with peeing in the right area but he's a leg lifter. I think she's currently taping some potty pads to low cabinets but is seeking a better long term solution. Any reviews of the rascal dog litter box? I would have...

    Roger's now 12 weeks old; we bought him 9 days ago and he's been just wonderful. The breeder took him a long way: happy in the crate, sleeps the night (generally), and, until the last 2-3 days, has been examplary on the accidents. Suddenly, he's started having accidents 1-2 times daily for no...
  11. Training Tips and Advice
    Okay, so I'm trying to house-break my two puppies. I crate them at night (and they've been doing good with that) then as soon as I wake up I let them out. Usually they go potty and then they come inside to eat. I set down the food/water, let them go at it for about 15 minutes, then I pick it...
  12. Training Tips and Advice
    I'm getting very frustrated with our 6 month old Mitzi. From the start we took her out regularly but she has decided it's fine to poop in the house. There's no recognition that it needs to be done outside. We have a routine when we go out, getting her to ring the bell at the door, praising her...
  13. General Discussion
    Hi everyone! I am so thrilled that I found this board - I have learned so much! I am very close to deciding on a Havanese, but I wanted to throw out a couple of questions before I take the big leap. A little background: We had a wonderful, 14-year-old Sheltie who died this past summer of...
  14. Puppy Area
    Hello - I have a puppy that is very nearly 7 months old, and has much success trick training, crate training (he slept through the night at 10 weeks) and will ring chimes to go outside. The problem is that he wants to go out about once an hour to pee (more often if he's drinking more or...
