Some Havanese bark more than others, and this is something that can be curbed when they are young and socialized properly.
They are generally quiet dogs that are on high alert, but they should still be trained not to bark so much.
They will let you know if someone is approaching your home or if something is amiss.
In fact, the Havanese is known as a “velcro” dog, who likes to stay close to their owner’s side all the time.
It's pretty common for the Havanese breed to live between 14-16 years.
