Thoughts on some breeders?

Hi,
I have been on this forum for a week or so and I can't begin to tell you how much I have learned! I am so grateful as we search for for our Havanese! I have spoken w/ many breeders who sound excellent. I have gotten a lot of leads from this site and I feel like I know what to look for. I am leaning toward Bydand but curious for any feedback from those who might have a Bydand pup. I am in NJ but willing to travel to pick up our dog. Early in my search I found a puppy on the Prairiwind webstie that we fell in love with. I have read good things about the breeder on this forum but i don't understand why she'll ship her dogs and most good breeders won't. Thoughts on both topic? thx. Ellen

I've heard only good things about Bydand but don't have personal experience. I'm sure others will chime in. I got all three of mine from Prairiwind and adore them. I'm sure you'll find the perfect one for you. How exciting!

Welcome to the group. Can't wait to hear what you get.

I don't own Prairiwind nor Bydand Havanese. I prefer the look of Prairwind's babies.

I think both are good breeders. They both do all health testing and I believe Bydand still shows her dogs. I like Prairiwinds "LOOK" better. I tend to like a slightly shorter muzzle, fuller coat, wider set eyes. In my opinion, Mary Cane of Moorea Havanese has some of the most beautiful Hav's I've ever seen. I just prefer that look, but I'm sure there are people who would argue that
If you go on the, Havanese Gallery and look under "Moorea", you will see the look I like. Good luck to you and welcome!

I agree with Linda. I love the look of both Mary Cane's dogs and Linda Wanamaker of Prairiwind. It's all personal preference though. However, I've seen so many beautiful dogs on here from so many breeders that the options are many.

I do know a few Bydand dogs, they do come to my playdates at my house, but I don't own one...so I'm not much help there, but I know there are people here who do that can tell you more.

You'll notice that different breeders tend to have different looks, I prefer shorter muzzles and more almond shape eyes and tails that stay right over the back/rump...but thats just me, we all have our things we like and its pretty wild how one havanese can looks so different from another, lol
Anyhow... to the forum! I hope you get the answers you seek!

That is exactly why I like Prairriwind look better. I find that Bydand's dog have eyes that are set too close to the nose and the muzzles are longer than what I want in a Havanese. Don't get me wrong, I love long muzzles in my GSD and in my poodles, but it's not a look I like on a Havanese.

Couldn't agree more. They look too lanky for me! I like the sturdy little dog look
