Visit to Starborn Havanese

I had a fabulous time with the King's yesterday! As a first time dog owner, you can imagine how confused I was with Adri. Pam showed me that training a dog is super easy as long as you pinpoint which behavior you are looking for and to get the timing perfect. This type of training for me was invaluable. Adri finally knows her name now. haha.

I did so much research into breeders before getting Adri and as more time goes by I am so thankful for the King's! You know that they are so knowledgeable and loving towards their dogs as well as all of the dogs that leave Starborn. They were so generous to let me visit. I thought it would be invaluable for Adri to be around older well-manered relatives so she could learn and pick up things by observation. The King's had kept Willow, Adri's littermate so it was fun watching them play together. Below is a picture of Willow, Adri & I. If you are a first time dog owner like I am and want a very healthy, smart & lovable havanese, I highly recommend Starborn because The King's are so supportive and loving <3<3<3

I feel so much better after the visit and I know Adri and I are going to be just fine now. haha

Wow, they look like twins. That's a great compliment to the King's. I know they do it right and make it easy for a new puppy owner. I've only heard great things about them and their dogs. Glad you feel more relaxed and confident now. The "kids" are beautiful. Enjoy.

It was a good day. Can you tell that Adri is a puppy who "doesn't like to be on her back", and "doesn't take naps"? She's sound asleep in that picture. We feel like Yumi went home with a new confidence.

Great experience. Thanks for sharing. And Tom... What a handsome man you are. After all these years on here I think this is the first time we've seen you!

Kodi sleeps on my lap, on his back for part of most shows. People are used to seeing him that way now, but he drew a lot of attention when we were the "new kids on the block".

Again today, someone came up to me, asked lots of questions about the breed in general, and about Kodi and his breeder in specific. They left with my name and number, and the Starborn website written on the back of their show catalog!

What a great story for people thinking about getting a puppy and the importance of a good breeder.
I'm sure things will be smoother for you and Adri now, it's not easy and good for you for working on it. She's beautiful.

Missy, that was the exact same thing I said to Sherron my daughter. Tom you are handsome, but I am an old lady so don't let it go to your head.
