    Hi! I have two 13yo hav sisters (littermates) and we are seriously considering adding a hav puppy for multiple reasons, one of which is to keep them moving and active as they age. Has anyone experienced issues adding a puppy with older havs? I've spoken extensively with our vet as one of my...

    Good morning! New and hoping for some advice. My 8 yo Havanese, Bandit, passed of cancer in Oct. He was amazing and we were devastated. I made the decision to not get another dog because, at 16 and 19, both of my children will be away at college in 1.5 yrs and I'm a single mom that typically...

    Hi, everyone! Just a quick update, Ginger is now home with us and we're settling in with our new life with a Havi. She's really sweet and seemingly attached to my husband. Follows him everywhere! She loves my daughter too but definitely my hubby is the centre of her world. Doug, our breeder...

    Hi all! Thought that I should join since I've been stalking this site like crazy while prepping to bring home 8-week old Ollie this Saturday (Aug 19th). He's a solid champagne (?beige) male. We met him briefly when he was around 4 weeks and we (my husband, teen daughter, tween son and I) were...

    Hello, I am new to this forum and will be getting our 8week old puppy on Friday 1/27. This will be my first time EVER with a pet, of any kind. I am excited and so nervous all at the same time. Been reading a LOT of books, websites, watching youTube videos... just soaking it all in. I'm sure I...

    Hello, we will be welcoming a puppy to our home for the first time ever and I am grateful that I've found this site as a lot of our questions have been so nicely answered. I still have a few more questions and will post them each separately. This one is about where the puppy will sleep. We...

    Hello I have just recently purchased my second Havanese. Yesterday, my daughter and I went to buy a puppy from Dr. Jennifer Shaw of http://dr-jennifers-havanese.com. Before purchasing from her I saw some negative posts on this forum commenting on her website being suspect. Fortunately, I did...

    Hi, We are very excited to be bringing home our first havanese puppy next month. My question is, is it important to visit the breeder and puppies before we bring our puppy home? The only reason I ask is that the breeder is 6 hours away so it would mean a 12 hour round trip twice in one...

    Hi everyone! I've lurked for a little bit and am SO glad to have found this forum! We've always had shelter dogs and all have been absolutely wonderful for our kids growing up. Now that we are "empty nesters" and I always wanted a 'lap dog', we decided on a Havanese. I've always loved them, but...

    Figured I'd post a general update on here and include some pics. Things are going well with Archer who is now just under 12 weeks old. We're still not 100% on potty training but doing lots better. We had a big party for my boyfriend's birthday and Archer was a star. He wanted to be with everyone...
  13. Puppy Area
    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...
  14. Grooming
    Hi all, I just got my set of grooming tools and I am working on grooming my 10-week old, Archer. I just want him to get used to everything we do on a daily basis so it will be easy when he is older. I have to admit I am finding this tough! The breeder said he was a really mellow guy and easy to...

    Hey gang, after months of planning we finally have little Archer home with us. He is a doll. He settled in his crate quickly and voluntarily goes in it (in fact he just went in again!) He knows how to use the rascal dog with the grate (took the grass off when he started tearing at it... that...
  16. Training Tips and Advice
    Hi all, Wanted to ask for the group's feedback about different philosphies on raising puppies & dogs. I have downloaded and read Ian Dunbar's "Before & After you get your puppy" .pdf's, and I intend to use those as a general guideline. Previously, I've read Karen Pryor's "Don't Shoot the Dog"...

    Hi all, So we were finally able to make a trip out to see the puppy that has been on hold for us with our breeder. He's a super cute little guy but before we make a final decision I wanted to ask for some advice with regards to temperament. They are currently 7 weeks old. We went and stayed for...

    I feel blessed to have the company of my Cuddles. I used to live alone until Cuddles came into my life. Until you have know the feeling of that happy face running to the door to great you, that same little face that tells, me, mommy, its time to go outside and play after a long day at work...
