The Havanese is a toy dog breed originally bred in Cuba to serve as a companion to the aristocracy of the time. We love that they’re perfectly bred to enjoy a human lap! They have soft, wavy coats that can come in a variety of colors including black, red, chocolate, gray, cream, gold, brown, and liver.
The Havanese is smart and eager to please their owner. In fact, they are often nicknamed the “Velcro dog,” given their penchant for sticking so close to their owner’s side.
Of course, be aware that their devotion to their owners can lead them to become anxious when left alone for long periods. That said, the Havanese is easily trainable and gets along well with children and other animals.
The Havanese don’t need a lot of exercise to stay healthy and well-behaved. A simple walk or a quick play session each day will do the trick. Plus, the Havanese does not need much space, making them well-suited for apartment dwellers.
Havanese also pick up tricks very quickly and love to put on a show! They can be protective and make good watch dogs without barking excessively.
As a smaller breed, Havanese only grow to weigh between 7 and 13 pounds and 8 to 11 inches in height. They are typically quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 14 to 16 years.
How dog-friendly is Connecticut?
Connecticut has always been a good place for dogs, but the state has given even more effort recently to create a welcoming environment for pet-owners and dog-lovers.
Pawsafe, a trusted source for dog safety ratings, ranked Connecticut 21st for pet friendliness. They also placed Connecticut fifth for the number of pet services available throughout the state and 11th best for pet-friendly accommodations.
In recent years, Connecticut has increased the number of pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. If you want to bring your pet with you when you travel, you won’t have trouble finding a place to stay overnight or to dine out.
Pet-friendly rentals in Connecticut
A similar study from Safewise gave Connecticut a less glowing review. They graded the state 39th for pet-friendliness. One of the main reasons they rated the state this low is the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 9%. That’s very low compared to other states.
Additionally, only 24% of Connecticut residents own a dog, which is far below the national average of 40%. In fact, it’s second to last for dog ownership in the United States. In contrast, the state’s total pet ownership percentage is well above the national average with 50% of Connecticut families owning a pet. Maybe Connecticut is more of a cat person?

Hartford’s most popular dog breeds include Huskies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. Clearly Connecticut loves a companion for the whole family.
Connecticut has 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 residents. There are also many laws and statutes to create a pet-friendly environment. The state doesn't mandate that dogs remain on a leash at all times, as long as you don’t let your dog wander onto another person’s property.
