The Associations List – Havanese Associations and Clubs in Ontario
As a general rule of thumb, if you are looking for a quality breeder that will provide you with a quality pet or show dog, tthey will be a part of the local associations. These groups and clubs are designed to provide a kind of stamp of approval for breeders, bloodlines and standards within the industry.
However, they are not the be-all and end-all. The system can be gamed, meaning that bad apples can get into the club or association, so it is only a part of the equation, you still need to do your homework. It is also worth mentioning that just because someone isn’t a part of the association that doesn’t mean that they are a puppy mill or a bad actor. These things can be quite political so do your homework.
The Canadian Kennel Club – CKC
The Canadian Kennel Club is the official governing body in Canada when it comes to dogs. They have all of the information about registered breeds, breeders, dogs shows, standards and laws.

How Do I Find a Reputable Dog Breeder in Ontario?
There are a number of things that you can do to make sure that you are dealing with a reputable breeder when looking for puppies. Check out our article on Havanese Breeders in New Jersey. At the top of the New Jersey article, there is a whole section on finding someone reputable.
The information or instructions are the same in this situation. The Havanese breed is no different than any other breed.
When you’re at a dog show you can get a little overwhelmed if you have never been to a dog show before. They are kinda different. However, while you are at the dog show you can get a lot of great information and actually meet the people.
- Seek out information from local associations and groups, get updated 2020 information.
- Seek out information from previous clients and customers of that person.
- Go to the local dog show and watch your breeder in action. You can tell a lot by how they treat their dogs and their puppies.
- Small animal vets in the area. If you can find out the name of the vet that your breeder uses, go and ask the vet for their opinion of the dogs
- Look for people that are proud of their dogs, transparent and have a website.
How Much Do Havanese Puppies Cost in Australia?
In Australia, Havanese puppies range from 800-1000 AUD on the low end to 4000 – 4500 AUD on the high end. It really depends on where you get your pet from. Most people know by now that you shouldn’t buy your puppy from a puppy mill or from a pet store, cause they are basically the same thing.
Buy your dog from a reputable, registered, reviewed breeder. Breeders who have happy families with puppy placements will have reviews. Pet quality dogs are going to be in the 1000-2000$ range, show dogs are going to be 50-100% more than that and Breed Quality dogs will likely be double that pet quality price. This is because the show dogs and breeding females are worth more.
Can a Havanese be left alone during the day?
Yes, Havanese dogs can be left alone during the day, this breed is ok with some time alone. In our 2020 ultimate guide to the Havanese, we explore this in more detail. What is found is that Havanese are good alone, but they do have a time limit of generally 7-9 hours that is ok. These are not the type of dog that can go without socialization all day every day like some other breeds. Havanese will want to be a part of the family.
How do I find a reputable dog breeder in my area?
To find someone in your area the best thing to do is start by contacting the local dog associations and clubs in your area and start talking to them about your desire for a dog.
Talk to small animal vets and see what they say. I would also read reviews left online for dog breeders and find people that have purchased from that breeder and see what they say.
Again one of the best things to do is go to a local dog show.
If you can visit the home of the person that you are thinking of working with. Sometimes they won’t let you visit their home, but if you can there is a lot of information that you can gather by being in someone else’s home. Especially their home.
