Fresh Food for Havanese
The typical Havanese abounds with qualities that make for an ideal family dog: Affectionate, good with well-behaved children and other dogs, and content to live in a house or apartment. Just make sure you give them plenty of love and attention, as they were bred to be companions. Their long coats require daily brushing and regular grooming, and you should clean around their eyes every day as well. Speaking of coats, let your Havanese keep theirs in the summer; the fur protects them from the heat and sun. The dogs are trainable and eager to please, so if you’re patient and kind with them they may have a lot of fun learning new tricks.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Havanese is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily physical activity, regular vet care, and a welcoming lap in which to sit.
What’s the best dog food for Havanese?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Havanese contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.

Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer
There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your Havanese the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation. Dietary antioxidants—like those found in fresh vegetables— are
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Havanese’s health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Havanese are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Havanese.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Havanese's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
