So I have done my research for at least 4 months and the Havanese seems to be the dog for my family. We are (hopefully) getting one this summer. So now we have time to prepare. We already have a kennel in the garage from our previous dog (and we will wash it down and everything) we are going to exchange the carpet for wood flooring in the family room and you know why. So what else is there to prepare our home and family for a havanese puppy (and it will be a girl) Thanks for any help!
