The coats of the Havanese non-shedding dogss are long and smooth to the touch. There are particular standards for the look when presenting in the conformation ring. The texture of their coat should be silky and airy. They have two coats: one on the outside and one on the inside. The outer coat should have a little advantage over the undercoat in terms of weight. Long and wavy fur is required. In the ring, a frizzy, curly, or wiry coat is undesirable.
The fur should appear fluffy and move freely. In a perfect world, the body’s natural lines would be visible rather than hidden. The fur of puppies will be softer and shorter. Black, white, fawn, mahogany, tobacco, and Havana brown are the most prevalent colors. It’s also possible to see patterns or parts hues. It is permissible for some of them to have varied colored skin. Their eyes are a brilliant brown, and their noses are either brown or black.
The Havanese is an increased breed that requires daily pampering if maintained in the entire cover. Once they are fully cloaked, their beard can develop to be eight inches long. When they have a heavy layer, they need to be rubbed every day and bathed each week. When they have a dog trim or their fur is ended prematurely, they will need to be trimmed each six to eight weeks and will need to be bathed every two weeks instead of every week.
Brushing puppy hair many times a week is still required. They have a coat that can be trained to cord or that will chord spontaneously. This style is ideal for folks who don’t want to brush their dog all of the time. It is not necessary to brush a coat that has been allowed to cord or mat into ringlets. The corded coat does require weekly bathing to keep the dog smelling fresh and to remove any dirt and debris that has accumulated. The maintenance schedule includes a monthly nail trim and twice-weekly dental brushing.
The Havanese is a fun-loving and joyful dog. They are devoted to their family and can easily accommodate your schedule and way of life. If not provided enough toys and attention, they can be mischievous and will entertain themselves. They aren’t particularly barky dogs, but when visitors approach their home, they will sound the alarm. Because the Havanese dislikes being left alone, make sure you have plenty of toys to keep them occupied when you must leave them.
If not properly trained and given plenty of toys, this active dog can become destructive. Even though they are small dogs, they require training. They are far too intelligent for their good and will strive to get away with harmful habits. This sweet puppy adores both children and other pets.
