The BEST reasons to own a HAVANESE

I have been emailing with my best friend that is considering getting a dog, and maybe a Havanese (if she can get past the sticker shock! ) And I was telling her a few of my reasons why I chose Gucci.

Of course there are the basics:

Non shedding
Great looking and super cute!
Great temperments/personalities

What would you add to the list? What makes your Havanese better than other breeds?

Non-smelling! Everyone that comes into my house cannot believe that it does NOT smell like DOG. Kubrick will only have that dog smell if he misses his bath day by more than half a week.

At least as far as Kubrick goes, he's not a barker... he only barks maybe twice a day if that.

Loving, smart and fun!

Ahh...but sending her through the WHOLE site? LOL That would take months!

I did tell her to research breeds and make a good match for her family. I know a Hav would be great for them.. They are home alot.

I think she needs a dog that does okay with cats too, because she has a cat.

For me Kara, obviously all the reasons you listed plus Valentino isn't a barker! Since I own the "Barking Queen", my maltese Lexie, he has been a pleasant surprise! He gets along great with everyone,especially my grandchildren and plays well with my other two dogs. Probably the thing I love most though is how much of a lover and snuggly cuddler he is! Best little dog who ever owned me!

One thing that I notice about havs is that by one year of age they seem to be out of the puppy stage and act more calm and behave like a adult dog.

I think my lab (9years old) is still in her puppy stage.

Peace, Love & Havanese

So TRUE!

And it is GREAT not to have a "Yippy" dog that barks alot. I love it when we around other dogs and dog owners and their labs or mixes, or whatever are barking like crazy and Gucci is just sitting there looking at them all like they've "LOST THEIR MINDS".

I get SOOO many compliments on her behavior.

Here lately, she has decided that she LOVES toddlers, she gets SOO happy when she sees one. lol It is too cute.
