The Havanese Breeder: Do Your Research

Jan 14, 2008
When people think of purchasing a full-bred puppy, many of them automatically think of their local pet shop. But this may not be the best choice at all and there are many reasons behind it. A pet store does not generally see where their puppies come from, what type of living conditions they had, or if they were being treated properly not only in the physical sense but emotionally too. Often times, these puppies end up coming from what is known as puppy mills.

A puppy that comes from a puppy mill is not one you want as they may end up with problems that are not visible right now. And when selecting a puppy from a pet store, you are not likely to get a salesperson that has extensive knowledge about your puppy. They generally just read over a small description of the dog when it comes in, unlike a Havanese breeder who has studied these dogs for years. Pet store employees cannot provide you with the detailed information you need in order to properly make the judgment call if that puppy is the right one for you.

A knowledgeable Havanese breeder should have not only a passion for their furry friends but also a lot of experience in breeding not just any dog, but the Havanese in particular. It is vital that you do not go with a breeder that cannot give you a lot of Havanese information. If you have never owned a Havanese puppy before, it cannot be stressed enough that you must talk with and buy from an experienced and professional Havanese Breeders instead of purchasing your puppy from a pet store.

You will want to have a list of concerns and questions to address with the Havanese breeders that you meet with. Just as it is important to go with a breeder over a pet store, it is just as important to make sure you are going with the right breeder. Havanese breeders who run puppy mills are ones that you want to run from, and then report. Your breeder must be one that has not only a lot of knowledge for the puppies and a lot of love for them too.

All in all, when it comes time to start looking for your new Havanese puppy, make sure that you are first selecting the right place to shop and look around. If something doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't. Educate yourself as much as possible before going and have that list of questions ready to ask. A Havanese breeder should have no problem in answering your questions as a pet store employee would.

Making the right decisions in the purchasing process can save you years of grief and thousands of dollars. The last thing you want is to have a puppy who is smaller then you wanted or noisier then you wanted. You also do not want stuck with vet bills that you weren't expecting because no one informed you of any possible genetic issues that may arise with a certain breed. Basically, do not make this decision based on emotions. Take your time and think it all over before jumping in to buy a new Havanese puppy.
