Looking for a breeder in Utah

My wife and I are recently married, we both come from dog families, her family has consistently owned collies and my family has raised a couple of miniature schnauzers.

we decided that the breed that we would like to adopt together is a havanese. we live in the greater Salt Lake City, Utah area. Can anyone recommend a reputable breeder in the area?

Also we have looked at a couple of breeders that have advertised in various search engines. I'm an a little skeptical about adopting a dog and having it flown over to us. Does anyone have any experience with that?

thanks for your insight.

There is only one breeder in Utah that I know of and she doesn't breed often - maybe once a year? I need to check with Melissa in regard to the rules on posting breeder information, but in the meantime, I'll send you a private message.

With any breeder, I highly recommend that you verify the health testing of both parents yourself and get to know the breeder before you ever look at puppies.

Hi Phil,

to the forum. I am not aware of any breeders in your area, but maybe someone else here does.

Glad to see that you found us this is a great place to get lots of information.

Hi Phil and to the forum! I don't know of any breeders in the Utah area, but I personally wouldn't ship a puppy, though I know people who have done it. It's hit or miss in my opinion. Either it works out just fine or there are complications. I flew out to my breeder's to pick up Kubrick and I don't regret it at all. He flew in the cabin with me and I felt a lot more comfortable about it.

Good luck on the puppy search and keep us updated!

Thank you for all of the responses. I have more PMs right now than I can shake a stick at! I've already been able to make contact with a number of breeders, so here is my next question. When you are selecting who to buy from what do you look for? What should come with a puppy "package" like shots or genetic testing? What should I be looking for in a breeder, and for that matter in the puppy? Thanks for your help! (I know that I am a total geenie when it comes to this)
