Do Havanese shed?



In short, yes. The Havanese breed does shed. However, they are considered a very low-shedding breed and so are hypoallergenic and good for people that want a dog that is not leaving big clumps of hair around the house.


Hmmm....I have to say that in 18 years, I have never gotten hair on my clothes and I have never had to sweep up any hair. Hair will come out when you brush them, though.

Anonymous asked:
We are thinking about getting a Havanese puppy. Can anyone offer any insight to this breed?



There are many websites you can go to including the American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club and Havanese Club of America websites to learn about the breed. However, one of the best ways to learn about the breed is to contact a responsible, reputable and knowledgeable breeder that is in your area. They will be able to make a time for you to come and meet their dogs, see them in person and learn all that you need to know before deciding if this breed is for you.


I have been raising havanese for 16 years now and I can't recommend the breed more. They are the most adorable, comical dogs and excellent companions. They are small so they are easy to take with you anywhere you want. I also love how energetic they are. They love going for walks and inspire you to do it, too. :) Extemely smart!

Anonymous asked:
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.


I was told by a breeder that the male is "more attentive". We bought one of each and it was true. The female was more aloof but both were extremely gentle. They were the best dogs we ever had. They both had a wonderful disposition. The male died of cancer at 11 and the female died at age15. We miss them a LOT! ,

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.
