A LITTLE ABOUT THE HAVANESE BREED:
Playful and alert. The Havanese has a sweet, non-quarrelsome disposition. The Havanese is trainable and intelligent and possesses a naturally affectionate temperament, which making the breed an ideal family pet. Although a toy dog, they remain energetic and require some form of daily exercise. The breed’s non-shedding coat makes it suitable for allergy sufferers, but regular grooming is necessary to keep the coat in top condition. This breed has great service/therapy dog potential.
Havanese Breed Standard
Much time is put into extensively researching Havanese pedigree’s and each of the bloodlines of our dogs so that we may provide the best representations of the breed! Very careful selective breeding is done when choosing your puppies parents. We breed for health, temperament and breed standard first and foremost.
Prices generally start at $1,000-$1,500 and up for pet puppies, more for breeding rights. We do not raise our puppies cheap therefore our price reflects the care and quality you are getting in one of our puppies. Prices are subject to change.
We recommend having your Havanese Puppy spayed or neutered around 6-8 months of age to prevent any unplanned breeding’s.
All of our Havanese puppies are kept on a strict vaccination and de-worming schedule. All puppies are socialized around children and other pets on a daily basis. Babies are born and raised in our home where they can be monitored at all times. We provide early neurological stimulation, child and sound socialization, so your Havanese puppy will have the best start. Introductory to the crate and potty pads will be started. All puppies are vet checked prior to leaving.
Our Havanese Puppies do not leave our home until they are at least 9-12 weeks old, depending on the litter and puppy. We won’t rush our babies!
Our Havanese puppies are fed a top of the line puppy food. We feed the Royal Canin Mini Puppy Food. We have fed this food for years and it does our dogs and puppies well. With the new research on the DCM and other problems rearing from feeding the fad of “all meat” and organic type dog foods, we are going to stick with what we feel is best for our dogs.
Our Havanese puppies are also microchipped with the AKC Reunite Microchip for their protection. The microchip is placed under the skin between the shoulders. This is NOT a GPS tracking device. The chip is a permanent identification for the puppy, when the chip is scanned a number will appear and when that number is looked up it will show your information on who that puppy/dog belongs too. But only if it’s registered to you. With the AKC puppy protection package it will be registered at the time of purchase.
We recommend the Snuggle Puppy
Dogs and puppies are pack animals and are instinctively drawn to their mother and others in their pack. Snuggle Puppy recreates that intimacy with physical warmth and a simulated heartbeat. The result is a calmer, more peaceful pet – one that feels less loneliness, fear and separation anxiety.
Some additional answers to questions you may have:
What supplies do I need for my new puppy?
It depends a lot on how you want to train your puppy, house training, ect.. but here is a list of things that we like to have here.
Food & water dish, Royal Canin Mini Puppy Food
Treats (we like Bil Jac Treats best), NuVet Supplements (can be used as treats also)
Leash, collar and/or harness
Toys (No Rawhide or anything that can be swallowed)
Snuggle Puppy or clock in sock or something to snuggle with
Crate; if crate training
Wee Wee Pads
Expen or also called excercise pen/play pen (we use one inside the house and one outside for a potty area)
Baby Gates to keep the puppy in a certain area of your home until house trained fully, Vinegar water or some type of cleaner in case of an accident
Puppy shampoo & conditioner (we like to use Pure Paws products you can google them online)
A couple towels for puppy
Straight toothed comb & straight pin brush
Vet phone number on hand and appointments scheduled for routine vaccinations
I like to keep a bag packed for the car when we travel:
Cleaner / Baby Wipes
Water & Water Bowl
Light Weight Collar & Light Weight Long Leash
What shots will my puppy have?
Each puppy will come with their own individual vaccination and deworming record that you will need to take to your vet for their first initial checkup. This will let the vet know what he will need to follow up on. Your new puppy will need to be kept up to date on booster vaccines, just like a human baby.
We start each puppy here with the following:
Deworming scheduled for every 2 weeks at minimum. At 12 weeks they start a monthly preventative, we like using Interceptor Plus.
5-6 weeks of age they get a NeoPar Shot, (this is a high titer Parvo Vaccination) & Kennel Cough.
8 weeks of age they get a 6 way, Parvo, Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parianfluenza & Corona.
If we still have the puppy past 8 weeks we do follow up boosters every 3 weeks until they are 17 weeks of age. And regular routine de-wormings. Rabies is given at 12 weeks or older.
Vaccines should be given 3 weeks apart and no vaccines should be given any early than 10 days apart. That’s just the rule.
PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT recommend giving a Lepto (Leptosporosis) Vaccination until the puppy is at least 17 weeks of age or older. Preferably 6 months old. It is to hard on their bodies as a puppy and many have reactions from it. Your puppy will not be covered in our health guarantee if any Lepto is given before this age! Many newer vets coming in to the field are doing this and advising owners that their pets need it. DO NOT LET THEM! Please trust your breeder who has many years experience with puppies and breeding dogs.
Do the puppies get their vaccinations from the vet or do you do them yourself?
YES, I give all the vaccines your new baby needs, as per my vet recommendations and under my vets guidelines, except for the rabies vaccine and my vet gives that at the recommended age as required by state laws. I have many, many hours of continuing education on vaccines and how to give and monitor them along with many, many years experience giving them as well. My vet does sign off on my vaccine protocol. These vaccines are purchased directly from Revival Animal Health and sent to me in a cooler the next day and they are immediately put in a refrigerator that is only used for vaccines where the temperature is very closely monitor, the exact same way our vet does. We use a trusted brand called Nobivac.
I am very strictly monitored as a breeder here in the state of Missouri. Some states don’t have the guidelines and regulations that we have here in our state, so it is understood if you or your vet may not trust some breeders or rescue’s that are not regulated or those who may not be doing things to your expectations. There are some that may purchase shots from a feed store or pet store, and no, those can’t always be fully trusted, the brand, or how they are purchased, and handled.
Please understand that I do know the fear of purchasing a puppy and not knowing if it had proper vaccinations or if the person is lying about them to cut cost or etc, that’s why my standard’s are so much higher. But because I deeply care about each of my dogs and puppies, remember these are my babies first, if you cannot trust me and my vaccine protocol, as your new companion’s breeder, then you have not found the breeder you are looking for so please keep searching until you can find a breeder you trust. I do not want the babies I’ve worked so hard to provide families, to be over vaccinated and made sick, because you or your vet don’t trust that I have done it properly. A vet can be very intimidating but stick to what is best for your puppy. A breeder’s years of experience, heart ache, success, failure, tears, trial and error and more ceu credit hours than that are required to be done by most vets, means so much to back a good breeder.
Thank you to all those who have trusted me and as your Breeder!
Can we come see the puppies?
Are the puppies potty trained?
Our puppies are started on potty pad / paper training. Some introduction to the crate is started upon their leaving. Here is a link to the local trainers for more information on house breaking:
Tips for Raising a Successful Puppy
Why are your puppy prices what they are?
When you purchase a puppy from us you are choosing a puppy from a legal, licensed, professional hobby show breeder. To be a legal licensed professional breeder in the State of Missouri takes a lot of time, money, love and passion for the breed. When you purchase a puppy from us you are not bringing home a puppy from a backyard breeder, illegal breeder, a flipper, “fun breeder”, or just someone trying to make a buck. When you choose a Titanium Havanese puppy it comes to you from loving hands and is healthy, fully vaccinated, fed a high quality food from the beginning for the best start, vet checked, health guaranteed, healthy and health tested parents and from a breeder who understands that puppy’s background and where it came from, socialized and loved from day one, someone who sat beside momma while she was birthing and helped each baby take their first breath of life.
It’s not cheap raising quality, healthy puppies. Our puppies are worth it!
