“Most breed-specific books are cold and boring and offer no solutions to some of the issues people may face raising the Havanese. Your book does! Thank you for writing a breed-specific book that incorporates all aspects of rearing the Havanese from puppy to adult.”Veronica Guillet – Renaissance Havanese
The Havanese is an adorable dog whose cute and cuddly look has won over people for decades. And that look is a perfect reflection of their personality. Havanese dogs love to be with people, and you will not want for attention nor affection when you have one as a pet. When you are home, your dog will want to be right there with you, being petted, brushed, or played with – whatever you want to do together. Your Havanese isn’t going to be particularly picky about what you do as long as you do it together. The more the merrier – so long as your dog knows everyone is present.

Havanese are quite intelligent, but they prefer to use their minds to keep you entertained, which is what makes them so popular. Watching them dance around with their hair flying around them looks both graceful and hypnotic.
They are also incredibly loving, but they do require a bit more attention since they are so smart. Habits like barking can become a problem if you do not train them – however, if you do a bit of training, they don’t bark that much. Given their size, training is pretty easy since they can easily sit in your lap and just enjoy petting and listening to the chatter. They can be incredibly energetic as well, but it is also easy to help them work off that energy through moderate exercise. Walking with them daily and playing inside will be more than enough to make them a nearly perfect dog for any home!
