Happy, Healthy Well Bred Companions
We have decided to no longer take names on a waiting list due to people purchasing non-registered, non-health tested dogs from whoever has the first one available. This is after many emails, phone calls etc and I find my time very valuable. If you are already on our waiting list and patiently waiting I do thank you for hanging in there! Getting a puppy from a responsible breeder does take time but it is always worth the wait whether it be from us or another reputable breeder. Sadly enough, the prices for non-registered puppies is the same or higher than what you'll find from wonderful breeders who take the time and money to health test and compete in conformation showing. That enable us and our buyers to know they are investing in the best possible companion they can. We also stand by our puppies and our buyers for life.
If you are already waiting for a puppy you will not be removed from the list and I very much appreciate your patience.
Thank you for visiting! We are glad you found us. We are a small show breeder located in Grande Prairie, Alberta with an emphasis on breeding healthy and well-tempered puppies. Our goal is to occasionally produce top quality Havanese to be devoted family pets and show dogs. Our dogs are part of our family living in our home and participating in daily activities. They are affectionate companions that love to snuggle, play, and perform.
Each dog has their very own sweet temperament and funny personality.
You can read about each dog on the Meet Our Dogs page.
Each litter will be carefully planned to continue to preserve the breed with temperament, health and structure being the priority. Puppies will not be produced often so it is of utmost importance to make each breeding the best possible.
Our Havanese have been very carefully chosen after extensive research. We are proud to have dogs from heavily championed lines but even more importantly than conformation titles are the records of generations of health testing available on the OFA website. Not only does it help us to make the best decisions in what we produce, it also gives families the extra knowledge they need to choose a healthy lifelong companion that conforms to the breed standard in temperament and structure.
Our intent is to conform to the guidelines of the CKC breed standards for structure, movement and coat without sacrificing health or temperament.
At the appropriate ages we test for hip and elbow dysplasia, patella luxation, Legg Calve Perthes Disease, hearing (BAER), and heart. Yearly eye exams are done by board certified specialists. All results will be registered and available for viewing on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website.
There is never a full guarantee that a dog will not inherit or develop any issues. Rest assured, we are doing our very best here at Chickadee Havanese and we back all our puppies with a genetic health guarantee to cover every puppy that we produce.
