Havanese Care: Your Responsibility To Your Pet
You’re now a Havanese owner, and there are some responsibilities that you have to your pet that are common to dog owners in general and some additional responsibilities specific to a Havanese. If you provide proper care and attention to your dog’s needs, he or she will be healthier and happier for many years to come and provide you with the loyal companionship and canine affection as only a Havanese can.
If you’re going to do something, do it right. Am I right? With Havanese care (and pet care in general) this adage should definitely apply. Your pet needs regular interaction with you, regular exercise, a healthy diet, proper veterinary care, an owner who is aware of health problems common to the breed, and regular grooming, just to name a few.
