What have you done to look for a breeder in TX? Have you gone to the Havanese website? To a dog show in Texas?

There are quite a few great breeders in Texas with some GORGEOUS havs. Have you gone to the HCA website and read up on health testing and what separates the good breeders from the not so good?

Good luck! I'm sure some of our fellow Texans will help you!

Welcome to the forum!

I'd gladly recommend that you talk to Joan Little of JoLain Havanese. Joan has done a lot of work with the Havanese Health Committee, among many other endeavors to better the breed.

Another recommendation would be for Cherie Belcher of Tejano Havanese. Cherie is past president of the Havanese Club of America (although being past president of any organization doesn't lend credit in and of itself), and has continued to serve in various capacities to better the breed and educate others.

Either one of these breeders would be able to talk to you or guide you in the right direction if you are willing to ask.

Also, if you go to the Havanese Club of America's web site, you will see a link for Breeder Referral. If you start on this page, you can read some information before it takes you straight to the list of breeders. There is one more listed in Texas, but I don't know much about her.

Both of these breeders breed to the standard and choose their dogs carefully before breeding, as well as follow the health testing. You can verify the health testings on any of their dogs.

We live in the Dallas area and after searching the internet and talking with people, ended up getting our Havanese from a breeder in Oklahoma City. It's not a long drive and we've were very happy with the care and love the puppies received. Our breeder has a series of "exercises" she does with each puppy to stimulate the brain and body and they were all raised in the home.

Hi Kimberly. I'm sure you forgot I live in Texas since I haven't posted in a while. Let's see, what do I do? Health test including check bile acids, I'm the secretary and the education chair for the hav club I'm with in Texas, help with raising funds for rescue and HEART, I've done the logos for the hav club I'm with and the last National, am a contributing editor for the Havanese Hotline, you can read my columns in the HCA Horizon at havanese.org and I'm a dog trainer. Gee, I don't do much now that I think about it LOL. Sorry, no puppies though. I don't breed all the time.

Early Neurological Stimulation? That's what I do with puppies and they have fantastic personalities because of it. You can read about it here. http://www.breedingbetterdogs.com/achiever.html
