Looking for a Breeder

I am new to this forum and looking for a breeder in Northern California. Does anyone have any recommendations? This will be our first Havanese. We have a 15 month old mini doxie who would really like a playmate. We would definitely be open to an "older" pup. Thank you!

We have a lot of northern cali Hav Breeders on the forum and it is such a great area to live with a Havanese, they have tons of playdates- I was able to attend a few

My little boy Dasher is from Kathy who I can't say enough good things about her or my puppy buying experience. There are also several other great breeders from your area on the forum as well- Kimberly, Elaine, and Katie. If I am leaving any of you out, sorry I am on a brain freeze!

You may really want to check out the local havanese club up there as well-http://www.capitalhavaneseclub.com/

I am sure you will get a lot of members from that area to chime in so good luck with your search

I'm not sure where you live in N. CA, but we live in the SF/Bay Area. My havanese, Maddie, is from Havtahava (Kimberly) in this area. Maddie is a wonderful pet, healthy, great temperament (she's certified as a Therapy Dog), and is everything we hoped for. Kimberly is a wonderful breeder, does all the health testing, and will remain a constant support for you and your puppy. If you want an older pup, she often has contacts that she recommends and can help you in this area. As Amanda has pointed out, there are several great breeders in N. CA. Its important to find a breeder who does complete health testing, doesn't pop out puppies for profit, and is focused on what's best for the breed. You may have to wait or go on a waiting list with them for awhile, but its definitely worth it!

We live in Redding. I actually chatted with Kimberly by email, but I didn't ask about older pups. I will do that.

Tons of Norcal breeders, youve already been given names. They also go to local dog shows if you want to meet with them and become more educated in the breed (highly recommend it, and its TONS of fun!)

I am originally from N. CA and my Benji and Lizzie are from Elaine. She is not only an experienced, reputable breeder but genuinely cares for her pups and puppy owners. She does all the health testing, shows her dogs in AKC shows, and offers all the support and guidance constantly. The puppies always get a good head start at potty training and doggie manners before they go to their forever homes. My experience with Elaine has been wonderful and I highly recommend her. She goes way beyond what is expected of a good, responsible breeder and she is everything I had hoped for.

As Amanda noted here, we have been truly lucky to have a wonderful group of breeders who are dedicated, supportive, experienced, and caring. It has been a pleasure to have met them at various playdates and get togethers.

Good luck with your search!
