It is very important that you pay a lot of attention to the grooming of your Havanese. Start with it when your dog is still small so that grooming with a brush and the like is something quite normal for him from the start.
Long-haired Havanese: How to groom the fur
Even if the Havanese is a dog with little undercoat, its long fur can cling and matt. To prevent this, you should carefully brush it regularly, preferably several times a week. Use either a coarse-toothed comb or a brush with long, widely spaced bristles.
It is important that they reach the hairline with her, because once the beautiful Havanese fur mattes, it is difficult or impossible to untangle it again.

Some Havanese tend to water their eyes a little - in this case, clean the area around the eye with a soft cloth dampened with warm water and dab with a dry cloth. A healthy, balanced dog diet ensures that your pet stays as fit and agile as it is - please do not overfeed the loving little dog, because overweight harms it.
