Sedoso Havana Silk Dog Breeder

Good Day,

I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with the Sedoso Havana Silk Dog Breeder, I am researching breeders and I had great exchange with the breeder and they sound great and responsible in terms of testing/breeding .

I would like any guidance possible in terms of selecting this breeder, I live in NYC and would have to travel to Florida when the time is right, which I do not mind. I have not had much luck with breeders in the Northeast and I am have decided to widen my search, as frustrating as it is, i am willing to do it for the right dog and right breeder.

Thanks again and you all continue to be a great source of information.

I'm not familiar with them. Tom King, who is a forum member breeds them, though, and he is an excellent breeder.

That's what I was going to suggest too... Contact Tom King for a reference.

Better yet... see if Tom and Pam have a litter coming up. There are at least 3 Starborn owners on the forum (besides Tom, of course) and we are all head over heels in love with our dogs. And they are only half the distance.


Karen, Kodi, Pixel and Panda
(ARCHMX Starborn Kodak Moment CGC, NTD, BN, PCD, NA, NAJ, CDX-CCH, RE, RLV, RL1X3, RL2X4, RL3X3...
plus Starborn's Picture Perfect & CH Nauti Herd Compact Flash RN, CGC, NTD, SN-C, RL1)

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Have you checked out your local havanese club for a referral. That would be an excellent place to start looking for a havanese. Here are the links to a couple of clubs in your area or close to you.

http://www.gnyhc.org/

http://dvhc.homestead.com./

Oh, I forgot to ask if you are looking specifically for a havana silk dog or a havanese? Sedoso Havanese used to belong to Havanese Club, but was part of the movement that broke away and started their own Havana Silk Dog club.

i will reach out to Tom King as well, I was able to do a quick search on here for Sedoso before they separated and they seem very reputable as well. In terms of if I want a Silk Dog or Havanese, I am not fussed, they seem similar to me but then again I am still a novice so excuse my ignorance on this matter.

They are not only similar, they are still the same breed as they all go back to pretty much the same foundation dogs.

I met the Sedoso people once, at a gathering after a specialty show. Their dog had won Best of Breed and mine Best of Opposite Sex with stiff competition. They seemed nice. This was about 6 or 7 years ago. My dogs were eligible for Silk Dog registration but I chose not to go that way for several reasons. The silk dogs are Havanese and are AKC registerable. There are several people on this forum who chose to go silk and several others who chose not to.
Unless you are 100% comfortable with the breeders you are thinking about, then my suggestion would be to contact the breeder referral person at the Havanese Club of America and the individual regional Havanese breeder referral people.
Good luck and hopefully you will soon have the Havanese that is perfect for your family.

Many "Silk Dog" people seem to call them 'Silk Dogs' when it's convenient and 'Havanese' when that is convenient. For example, they have their own Havana Silk Dog Club, but also still show their dogs as Havanese in AKC shows. It's all pretty confusing, to me at least!

I think the idea is that a "Silk Dog" is health tested and has a correct front with straight legs. However, ANY reputable, responsible Havanese breeder is running the health tests (and registering them www.offa.org) and only breeding dogs who are structurally correct and sound So I wouldn't get caught up in one or the other as long as you are getting the green flags from the breeder!

People in the dog show world know me as Karen, but the rest of the world knows me & I will introduce myself as Kat... I've been showing dogs longer than I've had the nickname, and the nickname is not new!

I thought the Havana Silk dog people stopped showing at the AKC Havanese shows. It seems kind of hypocritical....
