Learn more about the Havanese breed
The Havanese is a relatively healthy breed, thanks to selective breeding by responsible breeders. But like any dog breed, there are some genetic health issues that a potential owner should be aware of before purchase. Please read our pages on Allergies, Health Problems, and Lifespan pages for more information.
Are Havanese hypoallergenic?
The Havanese is often referred to as a “hypoallergenic” breed, which may be slightly misleading. People aren’t allergic to one uniform dog allergen; you may be allergic to something in their dander, you may be allergic to something in their saliva, you may be allergic to both! It is important to clarify what dog allergen you are allergic to as this will affect whether any breed could be “hypoallergenic” for you.
Most people allergic to dogs are allergic to their dander, and if you fall into that category, then good news! The average Havanese dog produces significantly less dander than most other dog breeds. How much dander they produce differs by dog, so you may be more allergic to one individual Havanese than another. To learn more, read our article here.
