Seattle area breeders?

Is it okay to ask for breeder recommendations here?

We have had 2 Havies for years but the older one passed away. We're now ready to get our next one but our breeder has moved and it's been so long since we looked that I don't know where to start. We are in the Seattle area. Thanks for your help!

Hi Laura! I remember you!!! I'm sorry to hear that one of yours has passed. It's fine to ask, though I don't know any breeders in the Seattle area. (I do know we have some members in that area though) There is also MyLad up over the border into Canada, and I think not too far from you. I don't know them personally, but they seem to have a good reputation.

I am so sorry for your loss. A year and a half ago I transitioned my Hav baby of 11 years as well.

Bill Burns of Burns Gardens is wonderful!!! He is in Port Ludlow, but I know his wait list is quite long. Ludico has a good reputation as does Wysteria. I have noticed that many of the Washington breeders rotate their dogs.Grandview has been around a long time and do not keep a wait list; however, they are less meticulous.

Hope that helps a little.

Lauren and Doug of Mylad are great! That's where we got our second pup. They have moved further away but offered to meet us in between somewhere. We may go that route but I also was hoping to look closer to home. Thanks, it's good to be on the forum again. (:

Yes it does thanks! I met Bill a decade ago and he was doing a great job then. Good to hear he still is. I've filled out his online forms and am waiting to hear back. Am bummed about the wait but understand that's part of it.



Thank you for the references to Ludico and Wysteria. I will check in with them.

Happy Holidays everyone, Laura

I won't ever go back to Grandview.

I got my first pup from her. He was six months old and it didn't take long to realize he was completely deaf. We BAER tested with a vet to confirm. When contacted she didn't seems surprised and offered nothing. I never told anyone until I found out she bred the same two dogs together afterwards. That really shocked me. Now I'm willing to share my story. He was a wonderful little dog but his medical problems were severe, besides the deafness he had severe allergies from day one, and then IBD, lymphangestisia, cancer and liver problems.

With MyLad and our second dog, the situation was completely reversed. They were just wonderful. Our boy developed legg calve perthes disease. When I wrote to just let them know, they were devastated. They immediately returned the entire price of the dog to help pay for the surgery. They even tried to send more which I had to refuse strongly to stop them. They pulled those two dogs from breeding and that was even more costly because the sire had been a super successful show dog (most winning Hav in No Amer at the time I believe). I can't say enough good things about the integrity and healthy breeding focus of MyLad.

Thank you for the references to Ludico and Wysteria. I will check in with them. Sorry for the long note!

Happy Holidays everyone, Laura
With what you've said about MyLad, it might be worth traveling for a puppy from them. I traveled a long distance for two out of my three, and haven't regretted it for a moment. I'd do it again in a heartbeat to work with the right breeder.

How nice to see you back Laura! I totally agree with Karen. The right breeder is most important. Look forward to hearing about your journey for a new pup.

I agree with travelling. MyLad was my second choice if things at Seda didnít work out for whatever reason and they werenít very close for me either!

Hi - sorry to respond so late but I just came across your post. Willow came from Rolling Heather Havanese and I think they are in the Burien area. I don't believe they have a website but the are on Facebook. I really don't know a heck of a lot about them as I am Willow's 2nd owner. I know there is another breeder in Arlington that I was considering. Found her on the Cascade Havanese Club website, among other breeders in the area. I was also checking with My Lad and but the timing wasn't right as he was dealing with some issues in trying to help with an elderly friend or maybe a relative. I didn't know he moved. At the time about 4 years ago he was willing to meet me in Blaine since I don't have the enhanced driver's license or visa. Do you know where he moved to? If I ever was looking for a breeder, I would want to contact him again. Let us know how your search is going.
