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.

The adoption of our little guy was very smooth. We got our guy home and he's been the best puppy. He was potty trained within about 4 weeks. I highly recommend PremierPups. In fact, we just put in a bid for another puppy.

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!

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.

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

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!

Breed: Havanese
Client: Patricia El-Khoury
Loc: Pleasanton, CA

I am a first time pet owner and was nervous at first about getting a puppy. However, after doing extensive research on which breed to get and from where, I knew Premier Pups was the right choice for us. The whole process was easy! We were so excited, we woke up early on the day they posted the pictures and selected the puppy we liked. The purchase was straight forward then after that it was just a matter of waiting and getting the house ready. We received Lily (formerly Carolina) on May 29. During the beginning on the pandemic, the travel coordinators were working hard to ensure we get out puppy without delays or issues. Lily turned out to be a perfect fit for our family. She is so affectionate and stops to say hi to everyone who passes by! She is funny, playful, cute and so curious about everything! She has the cutest underbite too haha! Overall, it was a great experience, and I often go back on the website to see if I fall in love with another puppy to get Lily a playmate. Only improvement I would suggest, is I wish there was more information on the website about the puppies’ personality or physical traits (underbite, hair or other). We love her so much and couldn’t be happier!

I was reluctant to purchase a pet on line. I searched and found only great reviews from premier pups . We received Brittany back on Nov 21, 2018. Ever since our precious Brittany showed up she has been a wonderful pleasure to have . The transaction of buying her, the flight and the follow up that the staff of premier pups gave us was truly awesome. I would recommend premier pups to anyone. Thank you for giving us a beautiful addition to our lives.
