A hybrid breed developed from the cute and cuddly Havanese and the smart and athletic Poodle, the Poovanese is a delightful family companion. Also known by several other names, including the Hava-poo and the Havadoodle, this gorgeous canine is friendly, affectionate, and loves being around people.

Chasing is a natural instinct for many dogs — you may have even noticed your Poovanese set off in hot pursuit of birds or other small animals when out for a walk. If your dog loves to chase, it's quite easy to set up a game at home that takes good advantage of their strong prey drive and that doesn't involve them frightening the life out of nearby wildlife.
A game of chase is loads of fun for your dog and also a quite simple way for them to burn off some excess energy, so here's what you need to do to get started.
The Poovanese is quite an intelligent breed that loves being given regular mental challenges, so working obedience training into your regular routine is a paw-some way to engage your pooch's brain.

Over time, your dog should learn to listen to their people over and above all other distractions, and will know that they may well get a tasty reward for doing so.
