We have been trying to decide between a Havanese, Miniature Poodle, or a Havapoo for some time now. We live in the St. Louis, MO area but also visit regularly family in Quincy, IL and Nixa, MO. Perhaps it would help us decide if we could locate some owners in those areas to talk about their experiences. Biggest concerns about Havanese are the alleged problems with house training and grooming. And, of course, finding a reputable breeder to begin a relationship as recommended. Tips on how to overcome the problems would be very much appreciated.

Dogster is a wonderful resource! It has been very helpful so far in our decision making.
