Do you only breed Havanese?
Yes, as a responsible and ethical breeder, I exclusively only breed Havanese.
Does one need to register or pre-book a puppy from the upcoming litter?
Yes. Keeping my girls’ health is of foremost importance to me and I will breed them only once or twice a year. If you are looking for a pure-bred Havanese and don’t want to miss the chance of owning one, then it’s best to go through the pre-booking process.
Will you be able to get me a puppy for my kid’s birthday, for their vacation or after their exam?
Puppies don’t come through a vending machine. Be prepared to wait for 6 months or more if you want a Havanese. Havanese is a rare breed. Even I had to wait for my own dogs.
Why is Havanese one of the easiest breeds to get fooled by?
Havanese come in various colours and combinations. The breed does not have a distinctive colour or marking. So as a puppy they could look like shih-tzu, Lahasa’s, Spaniel’s, Poodles oe Pomerian mix pups.
Are the dogs certified with KCI?
Yes, all dogs are of import origin and have their parent country certificate. They are registered by KCI.
Can I meet the dog’s parents?
Yes, of course. I encourage you to meet the parents as it’s a win-win situation for all.
This gives me, the breeder, an opportunity to meet prospective pet families and to ensure that the puppy is going to a good home. Also, this meeting is a way to sort any concerns, doubts or myths the prospective buyers may have. Additionally, buyers get the confidence of making informed decisions. They can see the dogs in good health, and can evaluate their overall temperament. Meeting the parents and puppies in their environment gives buyers a chance to check living conditions and the environment where the pups will be raised.
Do you enter your dogs for KCI dog shows? Do they have any titles?
Yes, I have entered my dogs for championship shows and they have championship titles.
How long have you been breeding?
I have been breeding Havanese since 2010.
Why are Havanese Expensive?
Havanese is a rare breed having special characteristics like being hypoallergenic, non-shedding, and no dog odour and are kid friendly. Globally, a pure-bred havanese will cost $2000 to $3000 for a puppy and my prices are at par as I provide end to end support on puppy welfare and handhold new parents, impart vital information, such as transition to your home, behaviour correction, puppy teething problems, grooming and a whole lot of other concerns that pet parents might face during the early days and even much after that. My puppy parents are free to reach out to me no matter how silly they believe their concern.
Do you have Cockapoo, Maltipoo, etc.?
No, I do not breed or sell mix-breed pups. Such breeding is not only unnatural but not recognized by any kennel club in the world. Such pups have no standard for breed structure and also come with a host of serious health and genetic disorders, deformities and temperament issues.
Do the parent dogs have any health problems?
The parent dogs have a yearly examination by a licensed veterinarian. This includes blood tests for liver and kidney functions, fecal examination, vaccinations for Bordetella (kennel cough), a distemper combination vaccine (such as DHLPP), and routine flea and tick treatment.
A record of all this is maintained as per requirement of AWBI to maintain my breeder’s licence.
None of my parent dogs have any health issues.
What guidance do you provide in raising the puppy ?
