    Hello!! So in a few days, I am planning to go collect my adorable little baby Havanese boy, he is about 4 months old!! But the only issue is for the easter holidays my family and I are travelling!! I do have a few options on where he could stay but I feel like I am neglecting hum with my other 2 dogs! Is this bad?? What should I do??

    I would ask your breeder if she can keep him till you get back, it would be too unsettling for him to join your family and then be cared for by someone else while you're away. Offer to pay for food and any vaccinations due.

    If you have plans to go away, it really isn't sensible to collect a new pup.

    I agree with SusieRainbow, ask the Breeder if she can keep him a while longer.

    If it was me, I'd ask the breeder to keep him a while longer or I'd just stay at home with him, no way would I leave him so soon after bring him home.

    When you say "travelling" to me that means a long holiday - as in longer than your average one or two weeks? so how long do you actually mean?

    Personally I wouldn't pick up a new dog then go traveling a few weeks later. Seems very unfair to the dog.
