Your puppy will want to follow you everywhere, all the time. Make sure that you and your family are ready to take on this responsibility - not just now, but for the next 15 years.
“Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love
can make him wag his tail.”
Do you travel often?
Your future planning will need to include either accommodations for your pet to travel with you, or a reliable place for them to stay while you're away. Either can be expensive.
Do you work from home?
If you are regularly out of the house in places where you cannot bring your puppy, you might reconsider your choice of breed. If you work from home, or have the ability to include your dog in your travels, they will do well.
Do you have other pets?
Our puppies are exposed to people and other animals as often as possible. At the least, they will have had contact with other dogs, and with cats. If you introduce a kitten at the same time as your puppy, they will learn to enjoy each other. This is true of nearly any type of animal.
If you already have adult animals, be prepared to spend time and maybe money to supervise their interactions and provide any training necessary.
Is your financial future predictable?
Like any pet, Havanese require some basics. A bed, a crate, food dishes, food and treats, flea treatment and immunizations and basic veterinary care.
Havanese have additional requirements. They need solid, regular time with people. They have to be brushed, bathed and maybe trimmed often. All of this requires commitment - either of time, or money - for the life of the dog (about 15 years). Are you prepared to offer a Forever home to one of these dependent creatures?
