Overview
The Havanese is a small breed that is happy and affectionate. They are true companions who love to be part of the family. They are extremely social and will lavish attention on those who lavish attention on them. Since this breed is odorless and low shedding they are popular choices for allergy sufferers.
Character
The Havanese is a true delight. They are intelligent, curious, and playful. This breed thrives on companionship and adores children. The Havanese are good watch dogs who will alert their family to danger or visitors. They will look to their family for reassurance before welcoming strangers. Once they befriend someone they are friends for life.
Temperament
The Havanese is a highly devoted breed. They are at their best in the family environment and do not like to be left alone for extended periods of time. They get along very well with children and other pets. The Havanese are neither aggressive nor timid, and do not exhibit a possessive nature. They truly have an endearing personality that makes them a lovely house pet.
Care
The Havanese require brushing and combing a minimum of two times per week although the coat may be clipped for easier care. It is important to check the eyes and ears regularly and keep them clean. They are susceptible to genetic eye disease and ear infections. The Havanese need to have their teeth brushed weekly so early tooth loss is prevented.
Coat
The Havanese is a double-coated breed that is low shedding. The hair is soft in texture, very long and in great abundance. The Havanese coat has different types from straight to curly. They come in many colors such as pure white to cream, black, silver, chocolate, or parti-colored. In the adult Havanese the coat reaches a length of 6-8 inches.
Training
The Havanese is always eager to learn. They do well in both agility and obedience. They also love to swim and enjoy many water sports. They take great delight in being the center of attention and with their quick wit are easily trained to perform tricks. Their sweet and loving dispositions make them great therapy dogs. The Havanese, like many toy breeds, may be difficult to housebreak. It is important to train this breed using firm, fair, consistent and loving direction.
Activity
The Havanese has an energetic nature that requires walking, a play session, or a swim. However, they do not require an inordinate amount of exercise. They do well in apartments and also homes with small yards. Since they are adept at learning tricks, they benefit from this activity. The Havanese are moderately active indoors but do need toys and social stimulation so as not to become bored and irritable.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Havanese puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

I haven't found this question, but need help. I have a 16 week havanese. We are trying to train to car rides. The problem is she throw's up. We have tried small rides. No more then half mile. As soon as the car starts, she is having mouth moist, until completely wet and blanket wet. After ride is almost over she throws up. Does anybody have a trick I can use to help her enjoy the ride? She has ridden in my lap (this time she didn't throw up. but almost) She has ridden in the back seat "car seat" with towels around her. I have also taken her out of the car to walk around little.

There are two things you can try for your pup. First off, allow your dog to be in the front and face forward so she can see out the window. Like kids, some dogs need to be looking straight a head to get over car sickness. As well, you can try Pepto or Gravol (travel sickness medication). Half a pill to begin with and go from there about 20 - 30 minutes before you get her into the car. She should grow out of this, but it will help for now so she can get used to the movement of he car.

What are the most common health problems faced in raising trying to raise a healthy and happy Havanese pup?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Raising puppies is difficult and the first thing to producing healthy puppies is to have a health dam and sire. Both dam and sire should have all their health checks done, including hips, elbows, eyes and ears. After that, having the mother on a grain-free, high quality dog food while she is pregnant and nursing is best to keep her in the best shape possible. Consulting a vet and a reputable breeder in your area is the best thing to do to learn before you attempt to start breeding yourself.

What food does a havanese eat ? What kind of diet does a havanese require

4 Comments

Anonymous

Every dog is different. That is the main thing you should remember when it comes to dog food. Some dogs need a grain-free diet, while other's need the grains in their diet to provide a lower protein level so it is easier for the dog to digest. However, it is best to strive for the best diet you can financially afford for your dog. Dogs were not made to be able to digest grains such as corn, wheat, rice, oatmeal, ect. So you should look into grain-free brands first such as Taste of the Wild, Acana, Go!, Now, Oirjen, Blue Buffalo Grain-Free, ect. Going to your local pet stores and doing research online is the best way to find out which brands are available to you and if it is cheaper/easier to buy them local, or to buy them online and have them shipped to you.

A grain-free diet for your dog will do wonder's for their teeth, skin, fur, nails, and over-all health. Because the dog needs less of the food for the same nutrition, you can feed a lot less of it to your dog per day. Which counter-acts the amount the bag costs compared to buying your dog food from a grocery store. Rule of thumb is if you can buy it at the grocery store, it most likely isn't the best food that you could be feeding your dog. The first five ingredients on the list are what makes up over 95% of your dogs food. So you want those ingredients to be healthy, natural and what your dog truly needs. They should include 1 - 3 animal proteins such as (de-bones or meal) chicken, lamb, beef, turkey, salmon, ect. Unless you dog has allergies or only likes a certain protein, then the flavor is of no matter.

Then there should be a starch such as potato or sweet potato, normally both. Beets are also good and are in high-grade dog food quite often. Next needs to be a fiber and normally that will either include potato or sweet potato, but there can also be peas, which are very high in fiber and dogs can digest them easily. When you open your new bag of dog food, you should be able to smell the protein source. If it is duck, it should smell like duck. If it is beef, it should smell like beef and ect. However, as said before, some dogs need a lower protein level and grain-free is too much for them. This means that you must choose a dog food with grains in it. Like us, if we had to choose a grain to eat, we would want brown or wild rice compared to white rice, as it is healthier for us.

Same goes for dogs, if they have to have a grain in their food. Take a note pad with you and go to different pet-food stores and write down the ingredients, protein level, and price. Go home and study what you feed your dog now and how much you pay per bag. Figure out which place would be best to start and don't forget, most pet stores will let you bring back a bag of food if the dog doesn't like it. So buy a small one to test out on your dog to see if he/she even likes it. Please note to take 3 - 5 days for an adult dog to switch over to a new food and 10 - 14 days for a puppy. Good luck!

The Havanese, like all dogs has it's standard colors and then more 'rare' or 'unwanted' colors. Now a days, people are wanting a more rare dog, so some breeders have bred back the chocolate coloration for the Havanese breed and are selling them for more money.

Yes! Our Havanese was in a crate just a bit longer then that & he did just fine!! He's over a year old now & is happy & healthy. He really is the best dog I've ever had....just a joy to own!!

My answer is not really--once in a while your Havanese dog (over 3 yrs) might tolerate this after she/he understands "I'll be back." This absence length tho' for a Havanese puppy would almost border on cruel because they need affection/love as much as food, water and shelter. Maybe you want to look into a more independent breed? Remember that the Havanese are bred to be companions.

I agree with the second responder. Havanese does not like to be alone for long hours. I try not to leave mine alone more than 4 hours, and this is not on a daily basis. They are wonderful, affectionate and sweet dogs who deserve the best from their owners.

The first answer is correct. Your Havanese should be able to be left alone for that time period, especially if it is a "normal" schedule. Our pup gets up with us in the morning, has his walk, eats a bit, and as I leave for work, he heads back upstairs for a "nap". I do not crate during a normal day. There is a pad in the bedroom. Watching on remote cameras, puppy rests, wanders and plays with his toys.

We got a Havanese puppy (3 months) as a first time indoor dog and he is the best dog we have ever had. He likes everyone and takes alot of rough and tumble from our 1 year old. He was about 6 months old before he was totally potty trained, but never has an accident in the house. They are very social and he is not a yapper. He will alert if someone comes to the door or pulls in the driveway. Heart of gold and cute as a button. They don't eat much and are well mannered in general. He took to our 3 yr old cat right away and they are best buds. He likes to be in on the action if he knows others are having a good time. A great pet! I can't say enough good things about this breed. He is truly a joy and a very smart breed.

Hello! I have been breeding havanese since 1996! I would recommend a Havanese for a first time due to the fact that they are generally quiet (meaning not barky like so many other small breeds) They are very smart and easy to train, they have been previously used as circus dogs performing tricks for patrons of the circus and it SOOO easy to teach them, even after they have passed the "puppy stage" also they do not shed, they are hypo allergenic so if you are concerned about getting hair all over your home/furniture there are no worries with the Havanese. Havanese are also a hardy dog weighing from 8-12 lbs give or take they do not feel "breakable" lol as a chihuahua or yorkie may feel when holding them. They are tough, a few of our momma's can scale an 8 ft brick wall in seconds and even more can climb, yes literally climb one foot one paw one foot one paw etc at a time over our outdoor runs. But they never run away when they do escape they come right over to give wet/muddy kisses.

If this is a puppy, put the crate near your bed and then move it further out every few days. Another good thing to do is to save a small portion of the food for a couple hrs before bed. Keep regular hours and bedtime, just as you do for a child. Our Havanese will come to us for three things--food, potty outings, and to go to/be put to bed! No, I am not kidding.

With my Havanese, she was about 4 1/2 months before she lost a tooth and then lost both of the bottom front ones at the same time. About 2 days later, new ones were coming in. Later that same week, she lost her 2 top front teeth too. Again, the new ones were right behind the ones that just fell out. I asked my Vet, and she said that sounds normal.

Hi. Five months old is still training stage. It is the nature of a dog to bark at strangers. (They are trying to protect you--all 8lbs of them, yep, against a cougar if it came thru' your door --wink!) After the initial barking (10 seconds?), gently put your hand around the snout and say "No bark--good dog." Release and reward IF the barking stops. If it continues, repeat the same GENTLY and firmly, adding "good dog" always but a treat only when the barking stops. After two months, our havanese "got it" and now stops barking nearly as soon as we say "no bark person." No treat needed. But you must let a dog bark--it is a protector by nature. The easiest thing to do if you know in advance that people are coming to the dog's territory, is to leash the havanese and meet the person outside. You will find that the dog just trots right in as if it is part of the pack. Read up on the pack mentality of dogs--it really helped us! Good luck : )

I have a 6-yr old havanese. These dogs are companions and behave like a child, will do anything to please you, may whine if they are not included with all who are coming into your home, and they can be jealous because they want to be sure that you love them...just as some children become jealous of others competing for Mom/dad's affection. re a leash train technique There is no dog as sweet as a Havanese--and btw, man can they run!! Don't let the size fool you. I walked my dog with the leash and any tug by her, I just stood still til she returned to my leg. You must be consistent. My reward for a well behaved walk was the release off the leash where I could really let her run. It is a dog's nature to sniff their way through this world.

There is nothing you can do about this but you can schedule reg teeth cleanings to avoid having your pet loose teeth more quickly than expected. Get pet insurance?!

Poops n potties regularly but this morning I have not seen him go pee pee. He is normally pee peeing on a potty pad. He tends to go on our tile sometimes. We are still potty training him but this morning I have not seen him pee pee. He has his water out but has not drank a lot. Do you think something is wrong. He has also been napping a lot.

My Havanese is 6 yrs old. These dogs "can hold it" for a very long time considering the size of their bladders! Mine also is pad trained ad sleeps a LOT.

We just bought a 8 week old Havashire {Havanese/Yorkie}. We also have 9 year old Lab. They get along beautifully! The pup is very playful with the Lab. She will bite on the Lab's trail and jump on her. The Lab does not mind at all.

My daughter has 3 BIG dogs; two adults and 1 one-year-old like my Havanese. My dog/puppy DEARLY loves to play with all three of the big dogs. They all wear-out before mine. She loves to play with the big dogs. No problem.

We have 2 bid dogs, tho she likes them a lot more than they like her! Havanese are very sociable and love to play with other dogs.

Havanese are great with small children but I'm not sure about big dogs

MY mom has a Great Dane and a Pit, and the guy next door has two Springers. And my Havanes plays hard with them. He wears them out. He is great with kids,cats, horses and anything else he can talk into being his friend. I have never regreted having him. He is the first small dog I've owned. And he is willing to do anything for me..I love my lil man. You will love this breed. Just never yell at them, you will make them shy. No matter what they do, just say NO firmly, then give love. Smart breed!!!!

you should! but make sure that they are potty trained before you leave them alone :). Also make sure that if you are going to be gone for that long, that you give them some type of exercise when you get home or as they grow older they can became lazy, overweight, and they will grow out of their puppyhood fast and wont want to play as often!

Gone 8-11 each day plus vacations probably? Maybe you want a cat. A little dog also will have a little bladder. If you can pad train a Havanese dog, they make great pets. I think you need to try ONE before getting the second. I can promise you that getting a Havanese means that the dog will OWN your heart. Good luck

I say no--Havanese are wonderful companion dogs and will suffer separation anxiety if you are gone so much--They love being with their "family" and unless you have someone checking on them regularly or they have another pet to associate with-- it is not a good idea for you to get one.

I would never do that. When a Havanese is left on their own even with another they will tear your house apart. The Havanese breed stay like a puppy. And you WILL break their heart to leave them that long alone. This breed is very needy when it comes to love. If you do that you will make a monster out of him/her. Why do that. Then you will hate him/her, and get rid of it. Great, now someone else is stuck with them and the dog will prob get put down or be on the streets. Why get a dog when you know you have no time for it? Gone up to 11 hrs a day. Then add sleep for 8hrs. Thats up to 19 hrs alone. Oh and BTW, YOU have to brush them every day.

I have a 9lb Havanese female, 15 mo. old who aggressively barks at small children while wagging her tail. When she is out for a walk she growls at all strangers. I've used a citronella collar, that doesn't always help. My grandchildren are afraid of her. She generally is the sweetest, most kissing dog I've known. Any suggestions?
