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: Villa Hills, Kentucky

We hadn’t had a dog in over 10 years. Our kids asked constantly for the past few years. My husband, Brad, and I were so apprehensive to get a dog. I researched breeds and breeders. When I found Premier Pups, I knew we were getting a dog!!! Then, when I came across Georgie (Reese), I fell completely in love! Brad did, too! Premier Pups answered all our questions and we knew we were making the right decision. Georgie has been a dream dog, too! She fits in perfectly with our family. Thank you, Premier Pups!!

We've bought 2 puppies from Premier Pups and we are very happy with them. I would encourage anyone who is in the market for a new puppy to buy from them. Each time was an outstanding experience for our family and our new fluffy additions!

Loc: Oviedo Florida

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.

Breed: Havanese

Loc: Park Ridge, IL

Ruby arrived in my home 10/14/2020...What a beauty! This is one of the smartest pups I’ve ever known and has been a dream to train so far. She’s a heartfelt addition to my home. And I look forward to many, many happy years of companionship.... a well known trait of the Havanese breed. The involvement with Premier Pups has been the best. Their follow up and thoroughness of information is unfounded. They really care about their pups. After months of reaching out to shelters for a young, female small breed dog with no luck due to the popularity of adoption during COVID ( a good thing!) I decided to look into Premiere Pups since I wanted to get a dog and have enough time to potty train her before the snow flies. A great choice. You can’t go wrong with Premiere Pups.

We had been looking for the perfect puppy for our family. When my daughter found premier pups website we fell in love with the pups. We made the 3 1/2 hour drive over to pick one up. We were having a hard time deciding between two on the website, but we fell in love with the first one they brought us. They were great people to work with!! Very nice facility too!!

This is our little girl Peaches (Catalina) in her Hawaiian dress. We want to thank Premier Pups for all they did for us to have her. They had so many obstacles to climb because of Corvid-19 and most planes were not flying. But we did get her and the service was fantastic. They checked on her, made sure they answered ALL our messages. I would purchase another puppy from them in a heart beat. THEY ARE FANTASTIC. Thank you so much.

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!

Breed: Havanese
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!
