Aviva Havanese Welcomes You!
Native Breed of Cuba - Historically Known As The Havana Silk Dog
Located in Bakersfield, California
2 hours north of Los Angeles and
4 hours south of San Francisco
This site is dedicated to my beautiful Havanese who are most importantly beloved family members and my constant companions. Not a kennel, this is a home where my Havanese are loved, treasured, and always near me. Whether sharing cuddles on the couch or proudly exhibiting in the showring, this loving relationship between my dogs and I is one of the greatest blessings of my life.
As an occasional breeder of Havanese puppies, only AKC registered Havanese are used in the Aviva Havanese breeding program. Parents are extensively health tested for eyes, hips, patellas, cardiac, hearing, and normal blood panels. Health tests are registered with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA), the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC), and the Canine Eye Research Foundation (CERF). Puppies are lovingly raised in my home with the goal of producing well-adjusted, well-socialized puppies. Always striving to improve the breed and my line, I show my dogs in AKC conformation trials, continually seek to educate myself on Havanese health and best breeding practices, participate in Havanese breed organizations and seminars, and work with other breeders to produce top quality Havanese puppies. I am a proud member of the Havanese Club of America.
Although I may not have puppies when you are looking for your special pet, you are welcome to contact me with questions about the breed or referrals to other breeders. I have been involved with Havanese since 2001 and have gained a fair amount of knowledge about the breed along the way. I hope you will check my website occasionally for updates on our accomplishments and new activites my dogs and I are engaged in. As a life-long lover of dogs, you can be sure that there will always be something new going on at Aviva Havanese!
So please, peruse this site and meet the little dogs who are my passion, pride, and joy......my Havanese.
Puppies planned for Spring 2014
