Ethical Breeding

Breeders start selling their puppies when they have a successful mating, sometimes even sooner. Stores and mills sell their puppies whenever they get a phone call or a walk in. If you can walk into a diner, you are probably at Denny’s or Burger King. If the restaurant has a Michelin star, you know you need reservations weeks in advance.

When you call a breeder, you   o r d e r   a puppy. No good breeder has pups on the ground that weren’t sold unborn, weeks or months before their arrival. This is even more true during these crazy times when all of the US is looking for a little companion during lockdown.
 
If you want your puppy TODAY, you need to go to a pet store and pay a premium of up to $5000 once all the fees are calculated in. For this premium you get a mill puppy. If that doesn’t concern you, go straight to the mill and get the same puppy much cheaper, although most mills have doubled their prices too due to the high demand. 

Please do not buy a puppy because you’re bored because many of those poor creatures will end up in shelters very soon, some because the owners get their lives back, others because indiscriminate mass production will lead to very poor health in many of those impulse buys.


What to Expect

We breed healthy, well socialized, happy puppies and have very high standards regarding breeding, raising and placing our puppies.

We are fully licensed as non-commercial private kennel in the state of PA.

We offer an excellent support system for the life of our puppies. 

All our adults are health tested, are on the premises and live in our home. 

Our puppies are AKC champion lines, most on both sides, some are triple champion sired, and come with customary shots and wormings, AKC papers, towel with mom’s scent, first food supply and, maybe more importantly, with a lifelong support system that includes unlimited coaching as well as a unique lifelong genetic warranty, which will refund your vet bills up to the purchase price of your puppy if you encouter a hereditary problem that could have been prevented with better breeding. Has never happened and it is unlikely that you are the first case because we breed accordingly. 

Our puppies leave paper trained/partially housebroken and have been introduced to an open crate in which they sleep with their mom and their litter mates. 

We are dedicated to maintain and improve upon the breed standard of both our breeds and have serious aspirations to do what few breeders achieve and most can only dream of: to actually make a contribution to the improvement of our second breed, the Havanese. We are focusing on the betterment of one of the very few -if not the only- negative traits of the Havanese breed, which is the matting issue and hope to soon produce Havanese puppies who will need to be brushed once a week or less -as opposed to an almost daily basis- in order to maintain a show coat, and very possibly even a non-matting Havanese sometime in the future.  

We do not ship but are willing to travel a reasonable distance, however, if you do adopt from us, we will need to meet face to face. 

There are pictures on the photo page of our adults and previous litters but you will search in vain for cute pictures popping up all over the place just screaming to “buy ME”. If pups are available, I can send you current pictures by email. 

Too many breeder-websites out there have little to offer, except for cute little pictures and animations. But this site is for folks who take adopting a puppy serious. Very serious. So that the fun and joy will be lasting. 

And maybe I can make all those of you who will not adopt from us for one reason or another, aware of the traps you may be about to fall into (and after all: there is only a handfull of pups available here anyway). 

You may not feel that champion lines are important for your pet and you can expect to learn in the following why they are and what it says about your pet and your breeder.

Havanese Puppies

Havanese dogs date back to the 16th century, when Spaniards brought their companion dogs to Cuba. In the tropical isolation of the small island, the Havanese breed was developed from those mediterranean dogs, mostly from the Bichon Frise. Their signature thick and silky coats were established due to the need for protection from the hotContinue reading “Havanese Puppies”

Havanese Breeder

There are two kinds of people you will come across during your search: breeders and pet producers. Though both may be similar in concept, they could not be further apart in reality. A pet producer does not care or know much about quality, stooping to breed dogs simply for the monetary gain in selling pets.Continue reading “Havanese Breeder”

To all the backyard breeders and mills who so ambitiously copy sites like this one: you can steal the words but you can’t steal the bloodlines and you can’t steal the fruits that result from hard work, years of experience, and the passion we invest in what we do. Your deception, ignorance and ruthlessness will not go unpunished in this life nor the next. Shame on you for what you do to the animals in your care and the damage you inflict on the breed. And PLEASE: if you do have to copy my site because you are too stupid to come up with your own brain child, at least change some words around. There is a copyright, you know…..
