Havanese Puppy And Dog Information And Facts

Jul 3, 2008
The Havanese is a cute and compact dog, weighing in anywhere from seven to fifteen pounds and standing at a height of eight to eleven inches. This dog is generally sweet natured and eager to please, making it a good choice for most families. With its small size, these puppies can work well in an apartment as well as a house, as long as they are walked regularly. Because of its intelligence, the Havanese puppy will often be relatively easy to train.

However, a Havanese puppy isn't necessarily right for everyone, although that might be easy to forget when you are gazing upon one of those fuzzy little faces. A Havanese puppy is a precious and enticing sight indeed, but never rush into the purchase of one of these dogs. If you are considering the addition of one of these adorable pups to your family, it is important that you educate yourself about the care of the Havanese puppy before you bring one into your home.

The first step in selecting a Havanese puppy is to find a reputable breeder. It is very important to purchase your dog from a breeder rather than a pet shop, so that you know that you are getting a dog without unknown health or temperament risks. A good breeder will be able to provide you with paperwork showing your dog's lineage and presenting any possible genetic problems that might be in the line. A reputable breeder will be more interested in improving the Havanese breed and finding good homes for his animals, rather than simply turning a profit on the dogs.

Once you have found the breeder that you want to work with, you will be faced with a litter of adorable Havanese puppies from which you must choose one. This is no easy task, but you can help yourself with the decision by knowing ahead of time what gender and characteristics that you are looking for. By letting your breeder know what you have in mind with your Havanese puppy, he should be able to help you select the perfect pup from the litter for your family.

Finding breeders, choosing puppies and it seems that your decision making process is finally complete when you bring that tiny fur ball home with you. However, there is still one more very important decision that must be made - finding the perfect Havanese puppy name for your dog.

What will you choose? You can go with the top twenty list of most popular puppy names, which includes choices like Princess, Ginger and Willie. Or you can go with the ethnic option, and choose a Spanish name that will go with this dog's Cuban origins. How about Bebe or Pepe? If you are still in a naming quandary, search your memory for favorite movie or cartoon characters.

There are plenty of places that you can search for that perfect title for your new pet.
Once the naming is complete, you and your dog can settle down to get to know one another. Training will be a process of bonding as much as establishing the rules of the house. With a bit of work and plenty of patience, you and your new pet will be able to enjoy each other for many years.
