My sister is the one that owns the Havanese but I have babysat (starting at 9 weeks old!) it several times to learn how the Havanese is. She owns the "sable" colored havanese. Similar to the bichon, the Havanese breed does not shed at all because it has hair instead of fur. This breed's hair does grow fast though. My sister finds herself taking him to the groomers every 3 weeks because she wants to keep his hair short instead of growing it out long. If you want to grow it out long, then just keep a brush near by to brush him/her. This is an intelligent breed and love to learn tricks to please their owners! They are friendly with everyone and love showing off their tricks. I recommend this breed to anyone, even those with young children!
