The Havanese is a playful, clown-like breed that loves to be the center of attention. They’re extremely affectionate and get along with everyone — children, strangers, household pets, and other dogs. They also learn easily and are eager to please. They’re often quite vocal and enjoy barking.
Although they have high energy levels, their small size means that their exercise needs can easily be met with a play session or a short daily walk.
While the Havanese doesn’t shed, it needs to be brushed two to four times a week. Otherwise, their long coats can tangle and become matted.
