Fun Havanese weight statistic

Hi everyone

I took the thread "Age and size of your Hav" and added up all the weight of everyone Havanese that was over 10 months old then divided it by the number of Hav's.

Results....... drum roll please .......

The average weight of the Havanese Forum dog is: 13.2 lbs

Just for the heck of it

I've heard that they are breeding Havanese to be bigger. Unintentionally or intentionally.


Hav to hav a Hav!!!

When I got my guys years ago, the trend was to be larger around 15lbs.

why 10 months? is that when a hav is considered full grown? tippi is 3 weeks shy of being a year old and weighs 9.2 pounds. Think she's through growing?

Well, after all of our agility training and extra long walks this year, my Hav at 3 yrs old has filled out to a muscular 18 lbs!! We just went to the vet and he's still a healthy weight with very feel-able ribs.

Yup -- it's the only thing "average" about Beau in my mind!

I'm not an expert. I do know small dogs mature faster than large dogs and are generally considered adults around 10 months. As far as growing more, I suppose they could - I know I've grown more the older I get

It really depends on bloodline. My girls have a growth spurt after 18 months, somewhere around 22-24 months.

The breed standard doesn't specify weight, but height as most of you know. Dogs will reach their adult height usually between 10 months and 1 yr. However, they can and will "fill out" for another year and should increase in bulk/weight.

A good breeder is breeding to the standard and if they have a pup that is outside that standard, they would be neutered and placed in a pet home and not bred so that the integrity of the breed can be maintained. While these pups can't be bred, they make great pets, which is why so many pet owners end up with smaller or larger Havs.
