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.

HAVANESE

Name: Sophie
Breed: Havanese
Client: Robyn Lentz
Loc: Harrisburg, Pa

We were very hesitant to adopt from this company. Worried about puppy mill puppies and sick puppies. After I spoke with premier finance, I felt better and used his recommendation to help us pick a puppy. The team members handled all of the puppies every day and were able to give insight on esch puppies personality. We were nervous about the flight but decided to go ahead with adoption. From the pick up from the airport, transition to home, follow up phone calls from premier it was a wonderful experience. Our vet felt she was very healthy and well socialized.

We looked forever for our new family member. I am so glad we chose Premier Pups. The staff was awesome and explained everything to us upon picking up our baby. Even supplied us with the medicines needed for the next 2 weeks. They called me twice to check on Mario, texted twice and even when I called them with questions, they were kind and very informative. We love our baby and we are already talking of getting him a playmate next year and when we do, we will definitely come back to Premier Pups!

Sammy is the cutest dog! As a first time dog owner, I was nervous about picking a dog without visiting him in person - but the premierpups team was good and he was delivered 4 days after purchasing him, in good health! I was also happy to have all his paperwork. I appreciate they make themselves a resource for all the questions and concerns you likely have during the first few days. I’m recommending premierpups to all my friends - they clearly know their stuff especially about small breeds. And havaneses are the best - Sammy has a great temperament so far :)

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!

Name: Lily (formerly Carolina)
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!

Too many time with the scam, lost money lost hope, until I found this website and decided that I am going to pick her up. 15 hours of diving feel nothing as soon as she’s in my arms ..... nothing can describe .. she became a light of our family and bring all the joys for us since. Now she’s 7 1/2 months, we still can’t believe that she’s us . I wanted to thanks all of you that there for real .. Mochi is healthy and just had her first period... ^_^. She’s a young woman now.

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!

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.

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.

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!
