10. Havanese are Not hyper.
Any puppy will have more energy and be more rambunctious than an adult but a good quality Havanese dog should have a “chill” temperament and will not be bouncing off the walls.
9. Havanese are Not “snappy.”
A quality Havanese puppy or adult should never be aggressive, growl, or snap at children or adults.
Many people with dog allergies can have a Havanese dog because of their hypoallergenic qualities.
7. Healthy with long life span
As far as dog breeds go, Havanese is one of the more healthy, exhibiting less overall health problems than other popular breeds. It is normal for a Havanese to live 14-16 years.
6. Easy to housetrain
Little dogs are usually harder to housetrain than big dogs. That being said, Havanese are one of the easiest of the toy breeds to housetrain.
5. Adorable in looks and in temperament
Need I say more?
4. Great with kids and other animals
Havanese are very gentle and easy-going dogs. A quality Havanese should be very good with kids, other dogs, cats, and other animals.
3. Self exercise
Havanese make great apartment dogs because of their laid back temperament. They do not require the strenuous exercise that many other breeds do. Havanese will self-exercise on their own if needed to meet their needs. Of course they will always enjoy a walk or lots of room to run.
Havanese are a quiet breed. They do not bark for no reason and usually only bark to let you know if someone comes to the door.
1. Take on your mood
Havanese are very emotionally sensitive and eager to please. They are bred as companion dogs and will take on your mood. If you want to play they want to play. If you want to walk they want to walk. If you are sick or want to chill with a movie they want to chill with you. If you are down they want to comfort you. If you are excited they get excited too.
