Havanese are very people-oriented dogs, love snuggling in laps, and can be overly dependent -- they don't do well at all when left for long periods of time without companionship. "Not doing well" means unhappiness and boredom, which they may try to vent through barking and destructive chewing.
A Havanese adult is the ideal pet if you live in an apartment or have limited outdoor space, but keep in mind that house training should begin at an early age to ensure success. Havanese are very loyal, and make great watchdogs. They also socialize well with young children and other house pets.5/5(7).
Havanese are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they're prone to certain health conditions.
