Puppy Parent Training
Hi, I'm Sonia B.
We are a small kennel on the Southern Coast of NSW, Australia, specialising in quality, sound Havanese. We love everything about the Havanese breed. From their outgoing personalities to their eager to please nature. They are not only super smart, but are not a yappy breed like most small dogs. The Havanese is a gentle and affectionate breed that thrives on human companionship. They are fun loving, joyous and intelligent as well, and will enjoy making you laugh with goofy antics, or simply sitting on your lap watching the world go by. The Havanese is naturally drawn to children and will often play endlessly with them. Because they are social, companionable dogs, they do best in an environment where they have company and are allowed to be part of the family. If their family is away during the day at work or school, they will need another dog or cat to keep them company. Once you own a Havanese you will want no other breed of dog. I am available day or night for any of your concerns and queries.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
Havanese are a beautiful breed, very easy to fall in love with. They are great with everyone regardless of age, and get on really well with other dogs and animals. They love to play with the kids as well as sit with you watching TV. Every one of our Havanese are part of the family and therefore they are very well socialised with not only other dogs, but children of all ages. They each have a nickname! They are raised inside my home,…
Havanese are a low/non-shedding breed much like a Poodle and therefore good for people with allergies however they themselves are very sensitive to different smells and can become quite sick around home diffusers. They require regular brushing and washing; daily brushing and weekly bathing is needed for full coats, and for short coats brushing once or twice a week, and washing every few weeks or whenever needed. All my dogs are…
We live in a residential area along the Southern Coast NSW with a large plot of land where our dogs have ample space both inside and outside of the home. Located near the beautiful southern beaches of Wollongong, our dogs regularly come to the beach with us.
Included with our puppies
All of my puppies come vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped and have been wormed regularly at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks of age. Puppies will come with six weeks worth of puppy insurance, a booklet written by me on the breed, pedigree papers, toy, collar, blanket and puppy food. As a registered breeder with the MDBA, you know you are getting a quality puppy with 24/7 breeders support.
Havsluv Havanese conducts 1 out of 3 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Havanese.

These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess their ‘hip score’. Dogs with low hip scores have better hips and are less likely to develop problems in the future. Most large and medium sized dog breeds benefit from hip scoring to ensure they are unlikely to pass hereditary hip problems on to their puppies.
About the breeder
A little about us
I am a foster parent (of the human variety) and have been involved with animals, particularly dogs, my entire life. In my younger years, I volunteered for the local rescue shelter and pound in Stockton, California. I currently hold a Certificate II and III in Animal Studies, am a licensed micro chipper and have worked for a vet here in the Illawarra.
Why we got involved in breeding
In our family, we have 20+ years of experience showing and grooming dogs. I have a sister and many friends who are also experienced and responsible breeders. We are really passionate about the Havanese breed as they are robust and healthy little dogs in comparison to other breeds. I aim to raise healthy, happy puppies giving them the best start in life. All of my dogs have wonderful temperaments and make the best companions.
Our special touch
I am available anytime for a chat about the Havanese breed. When you take a Havsluv puppy know that you are taking a piece of my heart with you.
