Numerous people are enamoured with the Havanese dog breed because of its luxuriously long hair, expressive eyes, and cuddly size. For its amazing capacity to stick at their owner’s side, the breed was developed in the 1800s as a companion dog for the Cuban aristocracy.
It’s possible to still come across a purebred dog at a shelter or rescue despite the fact that they’re registered. Don’t forget to adopt!
Don’t think of the Havanese as a couch potatoes; they’re clever and athletic, and they’ve done well in a variety of dog sports and careers, from performing in the circus to assisting people with disabilities. It is impossible to leave them alone at home for long periods of time since they are so attached to their family. If you make sure your dog has constant companionship, you’ll have a well-behaved, eager-to-please member of the family.
Strangers, children, other dogs, and even cats benefit from the Havanese’s kind spirit
When it comes to love, his family gets all of it; if given the choice, he’ll stick by his owner’s side. Due of their intense affection, Havanese may get anxious if left alone. This is a family pet, and a Havanese left alone in the backyard — or anywhere else — will not be content.
The Velcro personality he has isn’t surprising, given that he was trained to entertain the wealthy families of his native Cuba. Instead of just warming up for a few more laps, the Havanese has shown himself to be quite the athlete. There are several advantages of having Havanese dogs, including therapy and service work, sniffing out mould and termites, as well as clowning about.
For their size, Havanese dogs are very active, and they’ll happily engage in agility, freestyle, obedience, and flyball with you if you so want.
As is the case with many little dogs, loving owners tend to overindulge their Havanese. They’ll regret it, no doubt; bad habits, such as eating only human food, may develop quickly. It’s possible that your Havanese is teaching you something rather than receiving instruction from you.
Despite or maybe because of its quirks, the Havanese is a charming and versatile companion dog breed.
Though they are generally healthy, Havanese dogs may become sick like any other breed. Even while not all Havanese may get one or more of these diseases, it’s important to know about them if you’re considering bringing one into your family. If you’re buying a puppy, look for a reputable breeder that can provide you with health certifications for both of the dog’s parents. Health certificates show that a dog has had a medical examination and has been declared free of a certain illness.
The Havanese may live in a variety of situations as long as he is an indoor dog, from small flats to large homes with yards. I don’t think this dog belongs in the backyard in the first place. To be honest, when he’s with his family, he’s most content. When confronted with another dog they bark, but they’re not too yappy, thus this breed may not be suitable for those who have restrictions on noise.
It’s usually easy to train a Havanese because of his eagerness to please his masters and master figures.
To get a puppy used to basic obedience, it’s ideal to start with puppy classes.
If you have a Havanese, housetraining may be especially tough, so be patient. You’ll get there, but you’ll need to teach your dog to use a crate first.When a Havanese and his owner are apart, separation anxiety may be quite problematic. Preventing this problem is the simplest way to deal with it. A dog cage with plenty of sturdy toys is a good place to keep him occupied if you have to leave him alone for a long time period.
