Havanese prices can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the breeder, the age and lineage of the dog, and even the area of the country in which you live.
Havanese Puppy Prices
Havanese puppies for sale at prices up to around $1,200 to $1,500 are often sold by puppy brokers, pet stores who often purchase them from puppy mills, and amateur “backyard breeders.”
Puppy brokers are individuals who purchase Havanese from various sources around the country and resell them for a profit, and puppy mills are notorious for their inhumane treatment of animals. Havanese puppies from these sources are to be avoided at any cost.
So called backyard breeders are essentially individuals who breed and sell Havanese puppies as a part-time way to generate additional income. They lack the experience, education and resources needed to provide a nurturing environment, and their puppies often have health issues caused by poor nutrition and careless breeding practices. They also tend to have more behavioral problems due to the lack of socialization.
Havanese prices for puppies sold by reputable breeders can vary widely, from around $1,800 to $2,500 or more.
Unlike brokers and puppy mills, whose primary concern is profit, professional Havanese breeders are concerned about the betterment of the breed. They provide the best breeding practices, nutrition, medical care, and overall environment, and carefully screen potential buyers to ensure their puppies are placed with loving owners.
A reputable breeder will provide you with vaccination records, pedigree documentation and ongoing support to ensure a safe and smooth adoption.
Reputable breeders also offer health guarantees. In addition to the required 2-year guarantee, Royal Flush Havanese offers an extended 6-year health guarantee provided your new puppy is kept on our recommended dietary regimen.
Adult Havanese Prices
As is the case with most breeds, prices for Havanese puppies tend to be higher than prices for Havanese adults. Of course, this depends on the age, temperament, and pedigree of the specific dog. The primary factors affecting price are the quality of the sire, the dam and breeder.
From time to time, Royal Flush Havanese helps rehome Havanese adults whose owners have had to give them up for adoption for any number of reasons. Prices for these healthy, well socialized adult Havanese typically range from around $800 to $1,200.
While in our care, all adult Havanese and puppies receive basic obedience training and daily socialization by trainers with years of experience and deep knowledge of the breed. All of our adult Havanese receive genetic testing, and certifications are available on demand.
After the sale, we also provide unlimited, personal support to make sure things go smoothly for you and your new best friend.
