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.

Loc: Milan, MI

We had an amazing experience with Premier Pups! Our little guy is great, and has already brought us so much joy. He is healthy and full of love. He is already adjusting well, and doing great on potty training. Havanese is definitely a great breed, and even a better family dog. Thanks Premier Pups for the great experience, and always being there anytime that we have had a question!

Breed: Havanese
Client: Sheila Hicks
Loc: Cincinnati Ohio

We have always rescued dogs so “shopping” online was a different experience. I’m so happy with the process. Our girl is very healthy. She is exactly what we wanted. She goes everywhere with me even the potty. She is very energetic and happy at all times. We have two other bigger dogs and she fits right in with them. Thank you Premier Pups. We will definitely look here again for a pup.

Name: Pebbles
Breed: Havanese
Client: Carol Carne
Loc: Lithia, Florida

Pebbles (formerly Estela) came to us in April 2020 I was worried about the “virtual” purchase but I did my research and Premier Pups process made everything so easy with answering any questions to step by step instructions when she arrived. Taking delivery of Pebbles during the COVID mess with airline flights I prepared myself to drive to Ohio to pick her up. But Mike with Premier Pups flew a private charter to Florida with Pebbles along with a few of her furry friends. She arrived happy, healthy and full of energy! That’s excellent customer service not only with the delivery Premier Pups even continued to check in with me to see how Pebbles was doing. I had a great experience and would not hesitate to recommend and use Premier Pups in the future! Here’s a picture of her 1st birthday along with her favorite Yak chew stick!

Name: Stella (previously Siesta)
Breed: Havanese
Client: John Gill
Loc: Lancaster, MA

We purchased Stella (previously Siesta) and could not be happier! She is so playful and cuddley at the same time. I will admit, I was hesitant about buying a dog online that I wasn’t able to meet but Premier Pups was great. Answered questions, sent thorough emails with everything we needed and have called to check in on her. We were lucky enough to have her be driven to us and the drivers couldn’t have been nicer, even after such a long drive. She is such a sweetheart and I’m so happy we made the decision! Thank you Premier Pups for helping us welcome Stella into our family!

Name: Sammy
Breed: Havanese
Client: Sue Cline
Loc: Madison, IN

We purchased Sammy a week before the pandemic hit and he has been so much company for my husband and I. Premier Pups answered all questions and concerns prior to bringing Sammy home and they are very helpful and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again. We have 15 grandchildren and he has been great around children too.

Breed: Havanese
Client: Laurie Buehler
Loc: Wooster, OH

Dewey was available on my birthday; what a great gift! I kept the name given to Dewey by the breeder after I found out it meant “beloved”-it was a keeper. Dewey is playful, attentive, and a sturdy pup; I couldn't be happier working with PremierPups to find the perfect Havanese pup.

We bought Jax Fernando Frazier on March 27th and our family worships him. Jax has brought lots of laughter and love to our family. The potty training is in the books and he goes to the front door to be let out. Sleeps all night in his bed with his favorite blanket and chewable bear.
