Just to be a bit of a party pooper here, sorry about that, but I checked over the website and didn't see anything about health testing for her dogs. Just make sure if you do contact her that you get very good information on that. I also noted the home page had "puppies available" in big bold letters and then the available page said March puppies so I think the website or at least a part of the website is old. It happens a lot. My Oliver's breeder, who is still very much into showing and breeding still has not updated her website since November 2014. She is still showing Ollie's brother's litter pictures from that date. She is a very reputable breeder, but does not give off that impression on her site. Breeders should know people looking for pups go to websites first even if they have breeder contact info. We like to lurk and window shop for a while before making contact and old info on a website does not look good. Keep your sites current, it is the first contact you have with buyers. Most importantly it is your first impression with a buyer. Your websites are extremely important.

Great tips for buyers, breeders...

Such good points. Alas, I suspect that if it looks too good to be true (and only an hour's drive!!), it ain't.

I will tell Chico. He will look up at me, tilt his head to the left, then the right, and then wag his tail, hoping that somehow, there's a food treat promised in my voice. Sorry LittleGuy.

Will keep looking...

2014 is the most recent date on OFA for any Wyndward dog- so some testing being reported but none recently.

Good points Ollie's mom.
I agree website are extremely important to keep up to date for the outside world looking in.
During my search I found some moved to facebook and let their sites fall behind in info & updates... but are active on FB.
Easier than maintaining a website I suppose... some will at least point you in that direction with a FB link- others not so much.

I don't know how much research you have done, but the New England area has many great breeders. Contact the Greater New York Havanese Club (gnyhc.org) to see if they can recommend you other breeders in the NY/NJ area. Having your heart set on a specific breeder isn't recommended. Another thing you could do is go to a local show and speak with owners/exhibitors there to get some names of reputable breeders.

Ah, wise words.I will contact gnyhc...good suggestion, thanks. Had hoped to be in reasonable driving distance to make a few trips to breeder, visit dam/sire, later pups, which is what we did with Chico's lovely breeder...a little anxious, understandably, because, as "first-time" Hav owners, we think we already found the gold at the end of the rainbow...hard for us relative newbies to understand how much of Chico is hard-wired in this wonderful breed, and what is distinctly Chico.

Don't want replica, but complementary. But definitely want No. 2.
thanks for the tips!

If you're looking for a breeder in New Jersey, may I suggest Woodland Havanese located outside of Philly. We adopted Gracie from her 5 years ago, and I know she does all of the required health testing, and also shows her dogs. If we were ever going to get another dog, I would go back to Diane in a heartbeat!! I just checked her website, and she's had a couple of litters recently, but I believe they are all spoken for right now. At least you can do some research on her for the future if you are interested.

Good luck in you search for a good breeder!

Connie

Farah at Wyndward is a great breeder! She doesn't have litters very often though.
