Pets may not have words, but they can communicate. Paying attention to an animal’s cues—a joyful bark, a scary growl, a swishing tail—can help a child understand what the animal is “saying” and what an appropriate response might be. That’s part of what this book is about. But mostly it’s about showing children how to love pets gently—because pets are for loving, after all. Kids learn that teasing isn’t nice, that they can choose to be kind to animals, and that if you want to touch someone else’s pet, there’s one important rule you should know: Ask the owner first! A special section for adults includes ideas for teaching kindness to animals, activities, and discussion starters.

"Most breed specific books are cold and boring and offer no solutions to some of the issues people may face raising the Havanese. Your book does! Thank you for writing a breed specific book that incorporates all aspects of rearing the Havanese from puppy to adult." Veronica Guillet - Renaissance Havanese 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? Be prepared for your new puppy, and all the challenges that come along with owning a Havanese. This book will take you on a step-by-step journey and walk you through virtually everything you'll need to know as a new Havanese owner, including: Silky, Sweet, Cuddlers – the Defining Characteristics Breed History and Characteristics The Ideal Havanese Home Finding Your Havanese Preparing for Your Puppy The First Week The First Month Housetraining Socialization and Experience Being a Puppy Parent Living with other dogs Training You Havanese Puppy Basic Commands Havanese Nutrition Grooming – Productive Bonding Basic Health Care Health Concerns Your Aging Havanese 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!
