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.

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

4 Comments    Show 2 more comment(s)

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!

Why are chocolate Havanese more expensive than other colors? interested in purchasing one

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.

If there is nobody home from 8:30-2 for 3 days a week will a Havanese puppy be ok?

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.

Are havanese good first time dogs? I have never owned a dog and I am thinking about getting a Havanese is this a good idea?

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.

I never owned a dog until three years ago. Milly was a five yr old retired Havanese showdog. AFFECTIONATE does not even begin to describe this breed. Add cute, inquisitive, funny and fit. I dare you not to want to own two! I don't but I have really thought about it! I am not sure I really lived until I owned this wonderful loving pooch.

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.

Omega-3 in the food. A capsule just like you would take for yourself, except just one very other day. SHINY coat. Brushing helps even the shine out to a beautiful luster : )

I had a male Havanese and he loved running with me. The longest he liked to run was about 5 miles and then he was done.

Havanese are so intelligent they get bored easily. Is your puppy home alone when this happens?
