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.

Annual cost of owning a Havanese puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Havaneses true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

What sex makes a better therapy Havanese dog - a female or male?

The gender of the dog does not matter. It is all in the personality and disposition of the dog that makes a good therapy dog. A dog that is calm, easy going, has good energy and instincts is key to making a service/therapy dog. Gender does not matter.

Anonymous asked:
I am away from home for 8 hours a day while I am at work, would this trigger separation issues in a Havanese puppy?

1 Comment

A puppy, no matter the breed can not hold it for 8 hours a day. An adult dog whom has been fully exercised in the morning can hold it for 8 hours a day. Before you get a puppy, make sure you have a family member, friend, neighbor or a dog-care expert able to come over to your house every 2 - 4 hours depending on how old the puppy is to let him/her out to relieve itself. Being along for that long of a period of time will be hard on a puppy as well, they need you as their social pack and separation anxiety can form if you plan on leaving a puppy for that length of time every day.

I'm considering getting another Havenese. I already have a female so would you suggest another female or a male?

Unless your dog has preferences to what gender your dog likes better. It is best to get a dog of the opposite gender of the one you have now. So if you have a female, I would suggest getting a male. Dogs tend to have same-gender aggression more often than opposite-gender aggression.

Are Havanese pups difficult to house train? We had a Bichon and he wasn't housebroken for years. I'm hoping to avoid that a second time around.

The Havanese can be moderately easy to house train. Some dogs can be more difficult depending on how they were raised as puppies when still with their litter mates. While others are quite easy to house train. Using Positive Reinforcement and setting your pup up for success so that he/she does not have the opportunity to have an accident in the house when brought home is key.
