When searching for Havanese puppies for sale in Massachusetts, you should also consider breeders in surrounding states.
Purchasing your Havanese puppy from a reputable breeder offers a number of benefits over buying from an inexperienced, individual seller. In most cases, individual sellers, sometimes referred to as “backyard breeders”, are not registered or licensed, and they typically have very little experience with, or knowledge of the Havanese breed.
In comparison, reputable, professional Havanese breeders frequently a great deal of experience and a deep knowledge of the breed.
Whether purchasing a Havanese puppy, or any other breed, the AKC recommends making your purchase from a qualified breeder because they are “concerned about the betterment of the breed, and therefore focus on breeding healthier puppies with good temperaments.”
Do Your Homework
Whether purchasing your Havanese puppy in Massachusetts, or in a nearby state, you should take the necessary time to fully vet any breeder you’re considering dealing with.
Any reputable Havanese breeder will be happy to arrange an in-person visit to their facilities. Be sure to ask lots of questions prior to and during your visit.
Let’s face it, few things are as distracting as a cute, cuddly Havanese puppy so it’s a good idea to prepare a written list of questions ahead of time so you don’t forget anything.
In addition to the health and temperament of the puppies, be sure to pay attention to the overall cleanliness of the facility, and the demeanor of the owner and staff.
