The fur of the Havanese is soft, slightly wavy, and it is about 15 cm long. This species has many color versions:: its color may be of the shades of beige, brown, grey or black. Its long hairs demand regular grooming, it has to be disentangled and the tangles have to be removed at least twice a week if possible. It does not have to be shaved, but in the vicinity of the pads of the legs and in the surroundings of the anus it is practical to cut off the long hairs. Bathing can be omitted, however, its fur is only really nice if the dog is bathed from time to time. When drying, attention has to be pay to achieve a natural appearance, to retain the slightly wavy fur, and therefore regular brushing is not needed.
