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.

We picked up Sunny (Brittany) one week ago and we are in love! We surprised our kids with her and they are in heaven! She is so sweet and so much fun! She struggled some with eating the hard food so we have really appreciated all the support from Premier Pups!

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!!

We were looking for a four legged friend to complete our family. Coming from a family that has Yorkies, I was looking for something small. I researched small breeds and came to the conclusion that a havenese pup would be perfect. I found premier pups durning my search and feel in love with Joyce now Hazel. She has been perfect since we brought her home. She is well socialized but likes her independence. She barely barks or whines. We are absolutely in love. We will be returning to pick out a friend for her as soon as she is potty trained!

I can honesty say that I was kind of sceptical at first about picking a dog on line, but my experience with Adorable pups, have really changed my whole outlook on the idea. They are an excellent facility, very clean, very knowledgeable, and very very helpful with my experience with them, they genuinely care about the puppies they have there, and the follow up on my baby made me realize they aren't just any fly by night place. I am very happy with my baby, he seems very happy and healthy and that's what it's all about. I would most definitely get another puppy from them and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to adopt, a happy healthy puppy, Thank you Adorable pups for everything.

Loc: Burtonsville md

When I first was looking for a puppy for my four boys who’s always asked me for a dog I was scared. I wanted one that will fit our family. I called different places but non was appealing to me nor made me feel secure and safe (no scams) about getting one. Then I called premier pups and off top they was great!! They asked me questions about my family to see which breed will fit best and they suggested a Havanese puppy. I searched and found “Bobby” (the name they gave him which we ended up keeping) his picture stoled my heart. Still nervous being that they was in Ohio and I am in MD, the made me feel secure the whole way through, I had a thousand questions and they picked up and answered me every time. I had to wait till he was 8weeks old for them to fly him in but it was worth it. I surprised my boys for Christmas and it was the best gift I ever got them in their opinion as well as mines. Premier pups not only made sure he got here safe but also kept up with us the first two weeks to make sure all was well which let me know I picked the right place cause they really care about what they do. It’s almost about to be a year that we’ve had him and he’s been the biggest blessing for our whole entire household. I’ve recommended this company to anyone who’s asked. If you’re looking for a good place to go to to find man’s best friend this is def it!!!

Client: Pedersen family
Loc: Madison, NJ

It's now been two years since we got Rafi! I have to say, he's the best dog -- smart as all get out, energetic, loving, a protector, and just the "thing" that was missing in our family! We settled on a Havanese because of allergies and we also wanted a smaller dog. He was only 2 lbs 4 oz when we got him and now he's just over 11 lbs. He does not shed at all and was not too difficult to train. Thank you for sending the best pup to us!

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!
