So, if you are looking for a high quality Havenese Puppy that
does not shed, is non-allergenic, very healthy, and has a wonderful personality, then you have come to the right
place. Email us today for your next Havanese Puppy.
The Havanese puppy is a very unique puppy. The primary differences between the Havanese and other breeds like the Maltese, Yorkie,
Shih tzu, and other small breeds like them, is that they are very easy going, fun loving, and are not neurotic, barky, or nippy.
Many of the smaller breeds are known for these negative types of attribute, but the Havanese is known for being much more like a
large breed dog, in that they are intelligent, and easy going. They are also what I refer to as "Socially Intelligent". To
explain this, lets use people as an example. Some people are very intelligent, but you would never take them to a party with
you because even though they are very smart, they are not good with social situations... they are not "Socially Intelligent".
Dogs can be the same way. Some dogs like poodles can be very smart, but not always socially intelligent. Sometimes they will, for
example, bark and bark when in certain situations, and it becomes very annoying. Havanese will sense whether you are Okay
with a situation or environment, and if you are okay, then, no matter how scary or chaotic the situation is, they are
generally okay with it also, and will not bark for no good reason.
Special note to all you men out there... If you are not so fond of small breed dogs, but enjoy a larger breed dog, this breed will
be a breath of fresh air for you. They are as smart as many large breed dogs, but much easier to handle because of their size.
Havanese are also do not shed, and and do not have dander on their skin, so they are Non-allergenic to most people. We have been
breeding them since 1996 and have only had one family truely react, and their children were allergic to the dogs saliva... a
very unusual situation.
Havanese puppies are smart and easy to train. We have had many of our puppies win contests for obedience and tricks. One customer
trained her 10 week old puppy to do 5 tricks and sent me a video of it. You can go to our facebook page
www.facebook.com/noahslittleark, and see "Sparky",
one of our Havanese Puppies, do some tricks on a video that he used to win a trick contest in Maryland.
All of our Havanese Puppies are potty trained when you receive them, in that they are both crate trained, and paper trained.
This means that if your puppy is placed in a space around 6 foot by 6 foot with newspaper or potty pad on one side,
and left alone for a few hours, they will know to go potty on the paper and accomplish it 90 percent of the time. The first
week home is an ajustment period however as they are babies and their entire world has just changed, so please understand
that this holds true after that week. They are also crate trained so they can make it through the night without pottying
in the crate. Again, please understand that their night will be shorter than yours for the first couple of weeks or so,
so you may be rising early to let them out, or cleaning up a mess.
We will them train you to finish the training of taking them outside so that they will be dual potty trained, and will be
able to handle themselves in all situations, and you will not have to run home every couple of hours to let out a puppy... they
can take care of themselves.
It is our goal to make a puppy purchased from Noahs Little Ark Havanese, the best puppy you will ever make a part of your family.
WARNING: I felt compelled to write this quick note to everyone that is seriously considering
a Havanese. Over the last few years we have seen this breed become more and more popular. As this happens, as with all
other popular breeds, we are now seeing puppy mills and new breeders who are using poor breeding practices begin to pop up.
Please be very careful when you choose a breeder. Whether you purchase your puppy from us or someone else, here are some
rules to keep you safe. #1 Only purchase from breeders who have been breeding since 2001 or earlier. #2 Make sure you can
go to their home and meet the parents and see where the puppies are raised.(you don't necissarilly need to go, just so they
will allow you too) #3 Make sure the breeder performs the CERF test on the parents and other genereal health tests. #4 Make
sure they have a good health guarantee, not just a "Replacement" guarantee. If you make sure these 4 things are
in place, and you have a good feeling when you speak with the breeder, not an uneasy feeling, then you will most likely have
a good breeder. Most of all, please do not purchase a Havanese from a pet store. There is a good chance that the breeder who
sold it to them cannot get a good price of their puppy on their own, or they would not have sold it to the pet store in the
first place. It takes time and money to raise a high quality Havanese Puppy, but it will pay hugh dividends in the long run.
As some of my customers have told me when asked "Why in the world would you pay so much for a puppy?" Between the
medical bills and the heartache, it is well worth paying a little more for a puppy that is healthy and raised well socialized.
It is a great investment.
