With long silky fur and a friendly personality, the Havanese is by far one of the best dog breeds out there. As the proud owner of a Havanese dog myself, I can attest to the fact that these little dogs are the perfect companion pets. Havanese dogs are energetic and full of life, but they are also very smart and trainable. If you are looking for a new pet, I cannot recommend the Havanese highly enough.
The Havanese is an excellent choice if you are interested in a small-breed dog but there are some things you should know about the Havanese breed before you decide if it is right for you. Having owned my own Havanese for several years, I understand what it takes to keep these dogs happy and healthy – and I am going to share that information with you! By the time you finish this book, you’ll know for sure whether a Havanese is the right dog for you and you will be well on your way to becoming the best dog owner you can!
My Havanese, Bailey, has brought endless joy to my life, but he is a little higher maintenance than other dogs I’ve had in the past. If you want to keep a Havanese puppy or an adult Havanese, you should learn all that you can about these dogs. In this book, you will find a combination of practical information about Havanese dogs as well as plenty of personal anecdotes and tidbits from my years of experience with the breed.

Havanese dogs make wonderful pets - keep reading to find out why I love them so much! (and why you will too!)
If you have picked up this book, then I have to assume that you are interested in a fluffy little dog called the Havanese. If so, I want you to know that you are on the right track! I can say from personal experience that there is no better dog breed than the Havanese, and I have worked with many dog breeds in my day, so that is saying something! I am the proud owner of a Havanese myself (his name is Bailey), and I wouldn’t give him up for anything in the world!
Some people might say that all fluffy dogs look alike but, to me, the Havanese is a very unique and wonderful breed. Not only are these little dogs smart and energetic, but they are very affectionate with their family, and they love to cuddle. Bailey and I spend most evenings together on the couch, catching up on our favorite TV shows. Havanese dogs are friendly, and they do not have the same tendency to bark at strangers that many small dogs do – this is important to me because I love having friends over! Simply put, if you are looking for a small dog that doesn’t have some of the negative small dog characteristics, the Havanese might be right for you.
I know how hard it can be to choose a dog breed, especially when there are so many wonderful options out there. In this book, I hope to provide you with all of the information you need to decide whether or not the Havanese dog is right for you. I will teach you about Havanese temperament and personality as well as the history of the breed and tips for Havanese training. By the time you finish this book, you will have the information you need to decide if the Havanese is a good fit for your family, even if your family is just you. If it is, then you will also have a firm foundation of knowledge to build on, helping you to become the very best Havanese owner that you can be.
So what are you waiting for? Turn the page to keep reading about the beautiful Havanese breed!
