I am sure that some of the breeders can talk on this, but my understanding is that true havanese do NOT shed. My three really do not shed.d If I find from three dogs, one hair on the couch a month - thats a lot!! My guys have never shed. When I brush them it is a VERY small amount that I find in the brush. ARe you sure that your pup is a Havanese?? I would check with the vet if so, maybe something else is going on.

I find hairs after brushing and bathing my girls. We have a soft blanket on Dora's favorite perch near the window. You might want to take the dog to the vet and make sure everything is okay if you are finding a lot of hair coming out?

you don't think it's just because she is a puppy. and she is getting her adult hair? She is a cross with a bishon which is also a non shedding dog. hopeless
she is only 14 weeks

They will lose hair like you & i do. But should not do it excessively. Depending on how old your pup is & could be hard to tell if its real young but it may possibly be a 'shavanese' which is short hair Hav that happens in litters from time to time. Its caused by a recessive gene that if both parents carry it then a pup could be born that way. Its not a health issue but its just that they will have short hair & shed. You can google it for more info.
Also if you dont brush out the loose undercoat regularly, then you might see more than normal.

I feel you should brush as often as you feel you need to. I would have the vet check her to make sure there is no problem. Did you get her thru a breeder, if so, I would check with them to see if they thing she might be a short haired Hav.
