Every Havanese owner knows that these little Cuban charmers have a personality larger than their size. Here are eight problems that will leave every Havanese owner nodding in agreement, and perhaps chuckling a bit too.

1. Goodbye, Personal Space.

Do you enjoy a moment of peace in solitude? Well, your Havanese has a different plan. These little dogs have no concept of personal space and will follow you everywhere. The bathroom? They’re there. Making dinner? They’re there. Working on your computer? They’re right there on the keyboard.

2. Hair, Hair, Everywhere!

With their long, silky hair, Havanese dogs are quite the lookers. But their luscious locks come with a price. Be prepared for regular grooming sessions and find their hair everywhere, from your clothes to your morning cup of coffee.

3. Climbing High Mountains (AKA Your Furniture).

Despite their small size, Havanese dogs love to climb. Your furniture is their personal Mount Everest. So, don’t be surprised to find your Havanese perched on the back of your sofa or attempting to scale your bookshelves.

4. Their Unique Voice.

Havanese dogs have a wide range of vocal expressions, from barks to howls to grunts. While it’s adorable, it can be puzzling to understand what each sound signifies. It’s like living with a furry, four-legged opera singer who performs at all hours.

5. Stubborn? Who, Me?

Havanese dogs are intelligent and quick learners. However, they have a stubborn streak that surfaces during training sessions. Sometimes, it seems they’ve developed a sudden case of amnesia about that trick they performed perfectly yesterday.

6. Watch Out for the ‘Shadow’.

Havanese dogs, like some other breeds, tend to pick a favorite human and stick to them like a shadow. If you’re the chosen one, get ready for a furry friend who wants to be involved in everything you do.

7. Those Puppy-Dog Eyes.

Havanese dogs are experts at the ‘puppy-dog eyes’ technique. With one look, they can melt your heart and convince you to share your dinner, let them on the sofa, or forgive them for the shredded newspaper on the floor.

8. The FOMO is Real.

Havanese dogs have a severe case of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). They want to be involved in every activity, whether it’s gardening, cleaning, or a family movie night. Remember, what’s your business is their business too!

Despite these hilariously relatable ‘problems’, owning a Havanese is a joyous journey. Their charming personality, endless affection, and playful demeanor make them a delightful addition to any family. It’s not always easy, and it’s often a bit hairy, but Havanese owners wouldn’t trade it for anything. These dogs leave pawprints on your heart and, occasionally, on your furniture too.
