Puppies ready but which breeder?

Hello
After all my research and reading and pestering folks about their dogs. There are two girls from(Twinshavanese) and a boy and a girl from (Alderon Havanese)?
They will be able to come home in October! I think I am going to go with Twins, they are closer and they got raving reviews from many folks on this site.
Now do I get one or two? Is it easier to house train one or two puppies? I think I am going to try using a litter box?
Thanks for letting me ramble!

I can only speak for Alderon. Both Scudders parents are Alderon. In fact his parents are on her show page. He looks just like his mama. Scudder has the best temperament of all my guys. Make sure both parents were health tested by going to the OFFA site.

I should add that Scudder was actually from Flaming Geyser havanese. Both parents were Alderon but Flaming Geyser owned his mom. Alderon owned the dad. Just make sure you don't ship the puppy. It's a much better idea to go pick the puppy up.

go to:

http://www.offa.org


Type in, Twin and Alderon. You will see the dogs that have been health tested and the results. If you don't see the parents results, ask why they aren't posted. Ask for copies of test.

Make sure you get the correct temperament to fit with your lifestyle. For me that was a non yapping, not hyper, passive havanese. My guys are great at hiking with me but after that, they are laid back and quiet.

My Riley's sire is Twins Son of Freedom. He's a very sweet, smart boy with a touch of mischief. His Dam was local so I did not get him directly from Twins.

Benjamin's mom is from Alderon, and the sire from Flaming Geyser. He is very healthy and the sweetest tempered little guy I ever could have imagined. Alderon is in southern Washington state, a couple of hours south of Seattle.


Eileen and Benjamin

I would not want 2 puppies at one time. But then I wouldn't want 2 human babies at one time either. Raising 2 puppies requires a lot more time, patience and experience. Not for the novice really. It can be done….but why put yourself through it? Why not wait until you get puppy fever again in a few years (and you will) and get another one then.

I agree with Karen. (So what else is new? ) Puppies are tons of fun, but also TONS of work! When I think of the countless hours I spent training Kodi... And I don't just mean potty training, I mean all the other social skills and "house manners" that go into raising a dog that we can take absolutwly anywhere and know that he will behave like a gentleman.

He is 5, and we will probably get a second puppy sometime next spring. Kodi will help us raise that puppy! And we will get the joy of watching puppyhood all over again. (Along with all the work!!!) our experience with Kodi was that it was a year of intense work, followed by another year of careful watching, reminding, re-teaching before Kodi had the manners and skill set that we wanted in a house dog.
