Bred as a companion dog to the Cuban Aristocracy during the 1500’s, and named after the Capital of its origin, the Havanese, also referred to as “the silk dog” would become the national emblem of Cuba. Now almost extinct in its founding country, the Havanese was brought to United States during the Cuban revolution in 1959 when only 11 dogs were left to save the breed from extinction. Since then the breed has thrived throughout the United States and Europe.  These highly trainable and companion driven dogs make for a perfect family pet.

Appearance and Grooming

A small and sturdy gait with dark almond shaped eyes and a full muzzle this breed will never appear fragile. Despite its silky coat and minimal shedding, routine grooming is an absolute necessity for this dog breed. With its common coloring of black, blue, brown, gray, silver and white most owners opt for a shorter cut for easier maintenance. Though these puppies can also wear their hair long, they will require added brushing several times a week, if not daily and regular trims every 3 to 4 weeks.

Temperament

This toy dog breed is friendly, playful, alert and intelligent with a sweet, non-quarrelsome disposition. Aggressive behavior and shyness is not common in these dogs and should be corrected immediately if necessary. They are the most happy when they are with their owner as they form a special bond and a high level of attachment to the person they spend the most time with. Though, they prefer to stay at home, given the chance they also love to run around outdoors. 

Family and Companionship

With the earned title of, “Velcro Dog” you must believe that this loyal little canine will never leave your side. They are needy dogs who are keen on lots of affection and play. Perfect for a family with children or other active pets, as they love little clowning around and spreading their affection to their adopted family and everyone they meet.

Exercise

This small purebred needs light to moderate exercise each day. A short walk or some indoor play each day will ensure your puppy is getting all of the exercise that they need. Be careful not to over exercise this little bundle of energy, as much as it will love to keep up, too much exertion is not good for its tiny frame.

Training and Socialization

Even though this highly intelligent and over eager pooch is a fast learner, they still need patience and gentle guidance as their pride can be easily hurt if scolded to harshly. Practicing praise and creating a treat based reward system will result in both a happy puppy and a happy owner.

This is my baby Lila! She just turned 12 weeks old and she is happy and healthy. She is about 4.5 pounds now and is expected to be between 8-12 pounds. Premier Pups was wonderful to work with and they checked up on Lila multiple times. She was shipped to us and it was an easy process. Lila adjusted well. She is very smart and loves my rowdy boys. She also wants to play with our older, grumpy cocker spaniel. She never cries in her crate and pees on her puppy pad during the night. During the day she goes outside and does well. We just love her!

We brought Champ (Guapo) home one week ago today! The entire experience from purchasing to bringing him to his forever home was wonderful. Anytime I called with a question whoever answered the phone was extremely helpful and friendly. We received a video after he was ours and someone has checked on him frequently! We would highly recommend Premier Pups to our family and friends!

I’ve heard great things about Havanese and how they are loving, loyal and most importantly easy to train!! Within 8 days of having Betty she was ringing the bell to go potty!! Of course she has had accidents even just days ago, but she’s so smart and catches on to anything!! She’s everything our family was missing!!! The process with premier pups was easy. I was nervous up until the day we picked her up at the airport but so glad I looked past the fact that I was buying a puppy without actually meeting it first!! I’d buy another one bc she’s that wonderful!! If you’re on the fence...get off of it and buy a puppy! Preferably a Havanese!!

our kids have been wanting a dog forever! The problem has been our allergies until we found a Bradley at Premier pups. there were a few pups we liked and we took the drive on New Year’s Day 2020 not knowing if we were going to get a dog. In the end… Bradley was meant for us! His personality matched ours and not one of us felt any sort of allergy with him. He is now seven months old and we could not imagine him not in our family. He’s absolutely the best dog ever!!! we highly highly recommend Premier pups top-notch facility. Staff super super nice, knowledgeable, hands-on. gain premier pups… Follow Bradley to have a Nice on Instagram

We were very apprehensive about purchasing a puppy this way but it was a great experience. The staff is there for you always to answer questions. We got her on 3/25/20 (my husbands birthday) And we were concerned about how she would handle the flight but when we picked her up she just wanted out of the crate. She didn’t get sick in it and had no accidents in it. When we got home she had the zoomies and adjusted so well to her new life. She is the sweetest puppy ever you can tell she was handled and loved prior to coming to our home. I would definitely recommend them.

My kids (3,5,and7) and husband surprised me on my birthday by saying I could get a puppy!  We already have a 5yo Havanese from Premier Pups, and he has been so great!  So we did lots of research on which breeds we were interested in---small, hypoallergenic, good with kids and dogs---then headed out to see Mike.  The first pup was a Maltese, tiny as can be, all white.  We fell in love!  Just for fun we asked to see the Havanese he had---uh oh.  We fell in love again!  We ended up taking them both home!  :) Mike and his staff were incredibly knowledgable about breeds, training, health concerns, all of it.  They sent us off with a full stock of supplies in case of tummy troubles or trouble acclimating once we got home, and LOTS of detailed written instructions, just in case.  When we had questions or concerns---one pup didn't want to eat at first---they were always available by phone and within hours both pups were playing, eating, and thriving.  They continued to check in on us in the following days and weeks, and I know if we needed anything, they're just a phone call away.  We also go the Puppee Poo Palace, which has been great!  Our pups are now about 3 mos. old, still working on the potty training, so the ease of the slide out tray and separate little lofted bed has made life and cage cleaning so simple!!  Thank you Premier Pups!  We adore our new additions, Daufuskie (Duh-FUSK-ee, named after our favorite vacation island) and Carson!
