I've always been an animal lover and growing up our family always had dogs and horses. My father, being an avid hunter, had sporting dogs of some sort. When I was a teenager, I begged my dad to buy me a horse, got interested in horse showing and enjoyed barrel racing at local shows.
Due to living situation and job requirements, I hadn't had a dog for many years. So in 2001, I was ready to get a dog again and a good friend of mine suggested I come to the West Palm Beach show to see all types of breeds. My first time at a show and I loved seeing all the dogs. I came around the corner and here were these fuffy, happy, bouncing dogs. It was like a magnet and I couldn't leave ring side. I got my first Havanese pet 4 months later. Then over the next few years, I kept going to the shows to watch and acquired two more Havanese. Then in 2005 I had my first litter and thought I would give dog shows a try. In 2008 I finished my first Champion which I finished in Bred By Exhibitor.
Now in 2023, I have bred several Havanese who are champions. I enjoy showing my own dogs but on occasion have used a professional handler. I have multiple dogs in the top 10 AKC Ranking and National Owner Hander Series year after year
I love the Havanese breed and will always breed for health, temperament and to improve on the pedigree..

" About Puppy Culture "
“Puppy Cultures" is a protocol for raising puppies to be confident, happy, healthy and well balanced adults. This unique training protocol begins when the puppies are 3 weeks old. The main theory is that it is so much better to help puppies “find themselves” and to be great, well socialized companions when it comes to them naturally. Both the breeder and the new family build on and reinforce their dog’s tendencies that occur naturally between the age of 3 and 1
