Havanese at Mariposa
Socialization of our puppies is very important to us. We strive to give our puppies as many experiences as possible in a safe environment. We follow the Puppy Culture Puppy Protocol. You can get more information on this by clicking on the link. Please ask about puppy socialization when you contact us. It is important that you understand we are building a foundation for you and your new puppy. You must continue to expose your puppy to people, places and dogs in a safe manner once puppy goes home with you.
"The time frame from puppy birth to four months of age is crucial to the adult dog's temperament and well being. Most of the growth in a dog's brain is during this critical period of social development. After growth stops, it is difficult to change the wiring."
A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution
It is always best for puppies to be placed based on temperament and environment puppy will live in rather than for a specific color. See Havanese Color Changes for examples of color changes that are possible.
