|Yuppy Puppy Havanese
|3 Time Westminster Winning Breeder
|I am Janet, the creator of Yuppy Puppy Havanese. My first
Havanese was a gift to my son 19 years ago, from there we
were hooked. A year and a half later we got our second “Katie”
and so on, and so on... We began showing when Katie was about
6 months old and priorities each generation and each breeding
just keeps getting better and better. I have since lost track
of the number of Champions... However I still remember the
highlights.. I am a 3 time Westminster Winner, more than any
other Havanese Breeder Ever, had the #1 dog on multiple
years, Won best bred by multiple times at the Eukanuba
National Championship. I have taken winners dog at the
National 4 times... and had the first Havanese to aquire and
OTCH (Obedience Trial Champion) and the First Havanese to a
RATN (Barnhut) title. I have even put Rally and Agility titles on
my dogs. I guess not to bad for someone learning from the
ground up. It has become very important to me to see the
breed be well rounded.
I was a founding & charter member of both the Tropical
Havanese Club and the Mid Florida Havanese Club, serving on
both boards as corresponding secrectary. In past years I have
also served both clubs as the Specialty Show Chairman.
We live on the Treasure Coast, just north of Palm Beach, FL
conveniently located to all of Florida, putting us within 2 hours
of pretty much all major cities for the majority of the year.
But, recently bought a summer home near Asheville, NC where
we will spend Mid April thru the end of September.
All of our dogs live in our home with us, they sleep on the
beds and sofas, crawl on the furniture and bring so much
laughter and joy into our home. I can't even imagine life
without them and hope I never have to.
