Our passion and avocation is showing and occasionally breeding our Havanese. We breed litters with the goal of producing outstanding representatives of the breed. We do not breed dogs to support ourselves.
We have partnered with Julie Vogel of Oeste Havanese in our breeding program, and with professional handlers Taffe and Bill McFadden to present our dogs in the show ring. Taffe has also become a co-breeder. We also rely on outstanding veterinarians, including our dear friend Linda Amezcua DVM, our reproductive vet, Janice Cain DVM DACVIM, and the outstanding groomers at Dog's Best Friend and Cat's Meow. Our "village" also includes other dedicated breeders in the Havanese community.
Since adopting our first Havanese in 2006, we have produced numerous AKC champions and companion dogs.
We are members of the Havanese Club of America and Havanese Club of Northern California for the purpose of participating in a community dedicated to promoting the welfare of the Havanese breed. In this capacity, we have served on the boards of directors and/or committees of these clubs.
We breed to produce Havanese that are excellent representatives of the AKC breed standard; i.e., they conform to breed type, movement and temperament requirements as specified in the AKC breed standard. We are Havanese Club of America Breeders of Excellence.
