Question Havana Silk is what??

Is the Havana Silk and the Havanese the same dog.. Sorry if this is a silly question but just curious or is it just the coat of the dog... Am a bit new to this and confused a little... Is it all about the dog's coat.?. Are some wavy and some silky?? my pup is going on 5 months and top of head looks normal straight while some on body looks more furry.. Is that puppy fur they will loose???

We had a dog show on following the Thanksgiving Day parade and the announcers used both terms, Havanese and Havana Silk.

Please don’t read all those post. The Silks are a group of breeders and owners that decided they were not happy with the direction the Havanese Club of America and the Havanese breed was going so they decided to start their own club and breed. As Silks they are not AKC recognized so they still show as Havanese, accept AKC points and titles as Havanese when they win. In the future they may be recognized as a different breed but not yet. Their AKC papers will show them as Havanese. They may have papers from other organizations as Silks but not AKC.

I think the HSD people agree with you to Carole! lol...If you look at their site, it looks like they have taken down all the stuff about them being a totally seperate breed from the Havanese. I wonder why?

Havana Silk is another name for a Havanese.
