Oh! One more suggestion: The Greater New York Havanese Club is hosting a Havanese Specialty on Saturday, February 11th at the Hotel Pennsylvania. The show is one of the two local Toy Dog shows (NYC) before Westminster on the Monday following. The Progressive Dog Show is on Friday at the Hotel Pennsylvania, the GNYHC show is Saturday at the same location. It's a wonderful opportunity to see Havanese from all over who have come to NYC. You'll have a wonderful opportunity to begin to network. Find out when Havanese will be judged. Try to visit owner/breeder/handlers an hour before show time or after ring judging. Most show people return to the grooming area after they show. It's best not to try to approach folks right before they go in the ring. They are thinking about the judging and want to keep their dog focused.
A link to the February shows is at our website gnyhc.org and click on the EVENTS CALENDAR
There is also an AKC event for which the GNYHC is proud to represent the breed. The AKC Meet the Breeds event is at Pier 92 on the West Side of Manhattan the very same day as our club Specialty: February 11th. visit gnyhc.org and click on the events page for more information. We're at both locations that day. It's somewhat like the "World's Fair" of dogs (and cats, too!). The exhibitors are there to tell about their breed. No one is there to sell dogs. It's a wonderful family excursion.
