There exists as many ways to raise a Havanese puppy as there are to raising a kid. In reality, one method per household at least! However the majority of us concur that when it pertains to children, some things are universal and indisputable. Here are three things that a great deal of people just do not remember when it pertains to raising their Havaneses, nevertheless. How many times have I heard, “My Havanese just will not listen to me”, or “He simply won’t behave!”
Havaneses do not understand English until we train them.
The thing all of us love about Havanese puppies the most is the way in which they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the method our lives become theirs. In the beginning, they study us to discover our body language, our facial expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we state, “Need to head out?” one day, “Have to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO figure out what we want, it is due to the fact that we have picked up the leash and approached the door with a delighted face! If you want to speed up his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Select a command for EACH behavior and stick with it. Tell all in your family to use the exact same words and commands, and your Havanese puppy will impress you at how much quicker he catches on.
A young Havanese puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we believe.
The younger your Havanese is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs to sustain his metabolic process, and the more often he needs to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Havanese in weeks and his size establish how typically he needs to head out. One time each hour is not too often for a large 6-week old puppy, especially if it is summer season. Havaneses like the interesting smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks old. Right after a nap, after he eats and after grooming are the key times, and he will signal you. If he is happily chewing a toy and gets up suddenly with his nose to the flooring, let him out quickly! And each time he goes potty outside, praise him to high heaven! “What a great BOY!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so on. Havaneses enjoy our delighted faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Havaneses live for our expressions and body movement.
Because of this, the worst punishment you ever need to provide your Havanese is a frown and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so miserable. He will figure out the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention period is just 3-5 minutes, so do not deride him any more than that. Love him up and show him your happy face again. Physical penalty is never essential. Choose consistent commands and loving appreciation and he will know what you want of him prior to you know. He will end up being a master of your body language and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are lots of aspects of training your Havanese puppy well. Caring compassion works just as well for Havanese pups as it does with children, producing a delighted, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These 3 crucial pointers, used consistently with self-confidence, will start him well on his way.
