What You Need To Know About Havanese Litter Box Training

Jul 22, 2008
One of the great things about Havanese is that they are small, which make them perfect for cramped, modern lifestyles. However, their small size also means they have a small bladder. They physically cannot "hold it" like a bigger dog or a human can. A small dog like the Havanese needs relief about every four hours. Sadly, you can't always get home for your lunch break in order to let your dog out. This is where the idea of Havanese litter box training sounds interesting.

The answer is hoped to be found in Havanese litter box training. This is still the subject of some mild-mannered controversy among dog owners, but is hoped to make life easier for you, your landlord and your dog. Unlike some of the more stubborn and contrary breeds of small dogs, the Havanese is very calm and trainable. It is entirely possible to teach your canine companion to use a litter box.

You will be hard pressed to find Havanese litter box training in Havanese books or dog training books, unless they were written in the last two years. You have to check out websites, Havanese club members and your veterinarian for the latest Havanese litter box training advice.

Get some newspaper and blot up some of your Havanese's pee or poo on it. Put it in the litter box. Whenever you see your Havanese ask to go out, pick them up and put them in the litter box. Having the smell of excrement or urine already in there in the litter pan lets them know that this is where to go.

Dogs will try their hardest never to soil their beds, because dogs are not stupid. They also have a sense of smell thousands of times more powerful than our own. For most indoor dogs, the entire indoor home is considered their bed. Having a place to go ANYWHERE inside will be met with resistance from the adult housebroken Havanese. Train them like you would train a little newborn puppy - patiently and persistently.

Each dog will learn Havanese litter box training in his or her own individual time. Some will catch on a lot faster than others, just like with other aspects of Havanese training. You can use dog training books specifically for small dogs to help you, but they need to be written in the last two or three years. The idea that ANY dog could be trained to use a litter box is a relatively new concept and is still a subject of debate among small dog owners.

But Havanese training is easier than with some breeds like the entire stubborn terrier breed, as Havanese are clever and love to please. Havanese' are a very adaptable, easy-going breed that usually does not get too stressed with changes in their lives.

Perhaps that is why the breed has been able to thrive again after being nearly wiped out by the Cuban Revolution. Viva la Havanese litter box training!
