All dogs shed to some degree, our dogs do not have the same kind of under coat as a Lhasa or Shih Tzu who do start losing their baby coats at this age, and the new hair grows in fast, but the Havanese coat has a mixed undercoat hard to explain...haven't had a enough coffee. The undercoat sheds faster and comes out with brushing, this is good because this is the hair that can cause matting. When I wash my white/gold girl I see her pick skin and when the sun hits it in just the right way you see it, yet she has a nice coat. I would not worry, unless it is coming out in patches. You might call your breeder for some reassurance.
Our dogs do not have fur that smells, they have low dander, but if your husband takes your gold or white Havenese for a ride, two days later when you get in the car...those long blonde hairs sticking to the seat are "not" from another woman.
