Havanese Potty Training and Obedience Training
The Havanese is a natural clown, but they are also eager to please and eager to learn! Although never bred to work, the Havanese does have a natural predisposition to people-pleasing. This trait is what drives and motivates their desire to learn. Their clownish tendencies and people-pleasing trait align to make them the perfect trick dogs, too, and they were even once used as circus dogs! They love to learn and perform for their people or strangers! Read more about Havanese training.
The Havanese has a hairlike coat rather than the fur coat most dog breeds possess. Because of this, they are often referred to as “nonshedding.” In reality, they do shed but their hairs become trapped in their coat. These trapped hairs can quickly grow into mats if their coats are not brushed out daily. It is important to keep up on your dog’s grooming in order to prevent mats from developing. Mats can cause pain and discomfort and even lead to infection.
