Your typical Havanese doesn’t like water much. Rain, wet grass, water bottles, rivers–all are to be avoided in the eyes of a Havanese. Pretty much everything else, they love. Including you! These are definitely velcro dogs. They like to be with their humans and will happily follow you into the bathroom, hanging out with you while you do your business since you watch them do their business. They’re very fair that way. They’ll sleep curled up at your feet until you forget they’re there and accidentally kick them, and then they’ll move a couple feet away. Just out of reach but still close to you. They’re very food-motivated, which is great for training.
They love going on walks with their packs, although in their case, Havanese sometimes bounce or hop as much as they walk due to their build. They love to play. You can teach them to play fetch, and they make for pretty great agility dogs. However, if you aren’t into all that, you can just chase them around the house. My, oh my, do Havanese ever love being chased. As puppies, (edit: and as adults) they instinctively scramble backward away from you when you try to pick them up. They’re not being fearful; they’re enticing you to chase them!
