Are You Looking For A Puppy?


How Much Do Havanese Puppies Cost?

Another good questions. Many folks think that puppies come from pet shops! When you think about it, you discover that puppies come from breeders. There are many types of breeders.

The difference is in the quality of the puppy, how they are raised and cared for. I will try to explain as simply as possible the different types of breeders.

Back Yard Breeders, Puppy Brokers and Puppy Mills.

Less than $1200

Inexpensive Havanese puppies are usually raised in puppy mills or by back yard breeders. Puppy mills and backyard breeders put no thought in to their breeding program. They don't take care of their dogs and consequently have unhealthy dogs which generally aren't registerable with the AKC because the lineage documentation isn't maintained. As a result, many have lost the qualities of the Havanese.  Many are "line" or "inbred" which can lead to Health and Genetic problems.  Puppies that are born and raised in this environment are not held, loved or socialized.

ASSESSMENT:  Poor quality breeding and environment, health problems, not socialized. Generally these puppies can have poor health and behavior problems.

Reputable Breeders


The next group of breeders are reputable Havanese breeders.  Most perform Health and Genetic testing on their adult dogs before they ever consider breeding them.  The dogs are raised in their homes where they are well looked after and get lots of tender loving care.  You will find the price of a Havanese puppy bred and raised with these standards will cost anywhere from $1600-$2200.  This group of breeders take dog breeding seriously and want to perfect the breed.  They use good judgement in determining which dogs to breed together to produce the best puppy for you.   Their puppies are all pure bred Havanese and come with American Kennel Club (AKC) registration papers.  They also give a written Health and Genetic guarantee which protects you and your puppy.   Many of these dogs have show potential, but are being sold for a pet price. 

ASSESSMENT: Good price for an excellent quality puppy. Will most likely have excellent health and good temperament. 

Show Breeders

More than $2500

The last group of breeders will price their puppies from well above $2200.  They are basically breeding dogs with the same qualities as the reputable breeder group.  The only difference is that their breeding dogs are being shown in competitions around the country.   This seems to be the competitive group.  These breeders tend to price their puppies higher for the same quality puppy as the reputable breeders. They feel that since their dogs have achieved champion status that the offspring of those dogs are worth more.

ASSESSMENT:  Higher price for an excellent quality puppy. Will most likely also have excellent health and good temperment.
