The Havanese is an adorable dog whose cute and cuddly look has won over people for decades. And that look is a perfect reflection of their personality. Havanese dogs love to be with people, and you will not want for attention nor affection when you have one as a pet. When you are home, your dog will want to be right there with you, being petted, brushed, or played with – whatever you want to do together. Your Havanese isn't going to be particularly picky about what you do as long as you do it together. The more the merrier – so long as your dog knows everyone is present.

The Complete Guide to Havanese Dogs is written for the busy new owner who needs to quickly and easily learn everything they NEED to know as they embark on their journey of Havanese ownership. This comprehensive guide answers every question you may have including:

Is a Havanese the right dog for me?
How do I care for my Havanese the first few weeks?
How can I best train my Havanese?
What are some common mistakes should I avoid?

Havanese are quite intelligent, but they prefer to use their minds to keep you entertained, which is what makes them so popular. Watching them dance around with their hair flying around them looks both graceful and hypnotic.

They are also incredibly loving, but they do require a bit more attention since they are so smart. Habits like barking can become a problem if you do not train them – however, if you do a bit of training, they don't bark that much. Given their size, training is pretty easy since they can easily sit in your lap and just enjoy petting and listening to the chatter. They can be incredibly energetic as well, but it is also easy to help them work off that energy through moderate exercise. Walking with them daily and playing inside will be more than enough to make them a nearly perfect dog for any home!

About the Author

David Anderson lives in Minnesota with his wife Rebecca and their Teddy Bear puppy Buddy. An avid dog lover his whole life, David has translated that passion into his writing.

Growing up on a farm, David was exposed to all sorts of animals; raising Cattle, Sheep, Hogs, Horses, and Chickens, as well as caring for his families dogs and cats.

"Some of my favorite memories as a child involve running through the pasture with my dogs, and lazy summer days spent lying in the grass with all the animals" Anderson said. "As a young boy I really wanted to be a veterinarian, and while I eventually chose a different path, my passion for animals never wore off."

That passion for animals continued as he graduated from college and started to make his way into the world. Mr. Anderson launched LP Media, a company that is dedicated to promoting and educating the public about the joys of pet ownership. The company started small, but quickly grew and now helps over a million pet owners every month.

Anderson continues to write and search for ways to help other people who are contemplating the decision to become a pet owner.

"My work is never done" he said. "I love helping other people and providing great resources that they can use to help better their lives, and the lives of their pets. I plan on continuing to create great products that help pet owners for as long as I can!"
