What to expect from Pocopayasos Havanese. We have been showing and breeding Havanese dogs since 1998 when we were in the rare breeds and yet to be recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club. I assisted in having the breed established for registration with the Canadian Kennel Club.

We pride ourselves in breeding the highest quality puppies with Health and temperament being priority. Parents are health tested prior to breeding to ensure excellent health which has been the practice of Pocopayasos Havanese for over 20 years. We obtain a CHIC number on the parents. A CHIC number is a number given to the dog by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals showing they have had the necessary testing to pass: Hips. Elbows, Patellas, Heart, Eyes and Hearing testing. We provide Canadian Kennel Club registration papers once the puppy is spayed/neutered. All our puppies are sold on a non-breeding contract.

Socializing being a priority, my partner Tracy Smith in Pocopayasos Havanese helps with whelping and raising the puppies. Once the puppies are old enough, we take them to numerous places for socializing along with having family visits. The puppies come microchipped, dewormed and with their first vaccination and examination done by a licensed Veterinarian. Puppies do not leave Pocopayasos Havanese until they are a minimum of eight weeks of age and this is dependant on maturity of the litter as well as if the mother has weaned the puppies.

We do not choose your puppy for you. We do however make recommendations to families that are new to dogs especially when it comes to a dominant puppy. You will be placed on a waiting list in order of when the deposits are received. We do not breed for colour as our priority is health and temperament. If you are looking for a certain colour or colour pattern, we will not guarantee to provide you with that. We also cannot guarantee the sex of the puppy. We have had litters of 8 and all one sex. If you have a sex preference, you can state it but if there is not a puppy of that sex, you will have to wait for another litter or choose from what is in the litter.

You can look up our facebook page to see the previous puppies and families from Pocopayasos Havanese. We welcome visitors to come and see the dogs and puppies once they are old enough. Our puppies sell for $2000.00 which includes the HST. If you are interested in being placed on a waiting list, let us know and I will forward a contract for viewing. If you have further questions, please ask.

Thank you

Paula Martel and Tracy Smith.
