A lot of the items may be purchased through any regular pet store like Petsmart, Petco, Pet Supermarket, Pet Supplies Plus, etc. There are several items listed that can only be purchased through a distributor or a website such as Tableworks.com, CherryBrook.com, PetEdge.com, Dog.com, Chewy.com.
Registration of the puppy will be filled out at the breeder's home on the day of Pick-Up. That is an additional $75 whether it be cash or check.
Note: For full registration, there are additional contract requirements. Not all puppies are eligible for Full Registration status. Not all puppies are eligible for show contracts, or breeding potential puppies.
There will be a complementary exit review provided from the breeder's veterinarian prior to departure along with a grooming session with the breeder, if desired. ( Grooming videos on-line for review) Please allow 2-3 hours for your pick up visit if including the grooming session and the exit review. The exit review will be first come, first serve according to available times with the vet. All local families will be offered a years membership to the local Havanese club. Don't forget to bring a bag to take your puppy goodies home, and a puppy carrier. I recommend a hard case about a 10" X 19". You can purchase one at Walmart, PetSmart, PetCo, or Pet Supply Plus for approximately $30-$40.

Below are pictures of items that I use with my dogs.
#1 What food am I feeding the puppies? Pro Plan Focus Chicken and Rice formula for toy breeds. The recent craze in diets have suggested all Grain-Free diets. I do NOT recommend this for 2 reasons; 1- small dogs can not process all of the protein and can form painful urine crystals or kidney stones. Protein content should be lower than 28%. 2- There has been a very strong link to congestive heart failure to an all grain free diet. We do not have wolves. Our canines have been domesticated for a long time. They have not had a need for all the protein as if they have been killing their prey to eat.
#2 What shots/vaccines will the puppy already have? 1 distemper/Parvo booster. They will need 4 Distemper/Parvo shots before 16 weeks old to have good immunity. The vaccines need to be spaced 4 weeks apart. Your vet will know how to schedule the vaccines according to the AVMA.
#3 Will the puppies already be de-wormed? It's not recommended to prophylacticaly de-worm puppies just for the sake of de-worming them, if the mother has been on a monthly pill for de-worming and raised in the home.
#4 What size of collar or harness will my puppy be wear when going home? Adjustable XXsmall, or 12"-18" chest harness size.
#5 How much has my puppy be eating daily? I will not know an amount because I graze feed all my puppies together in one big bowl. I recommend taking the recommended daily amount and placing that in a bowl. Place it down in the morning and if that amount is still available at the end of the day, you know your puppy is not eating as much as is recommended. If you feed 2-3 times a day by removing the food bowl after about 30 minutes of placing it down in the pen, then I would use the left overs in the bowl to place down each time and then by the end of the day, if there is not enough food or too much left over, you will have a way of telling how much food your puppy is eating.
#6 What treats do I feed the puppies? I probably will not have been filling up their tummies with treats as they need their nourishment to grow. Any of the treats below will be good potentials. You will just need to find something that is soft, that they really like to work for to receive, and small enough to not fill up on empty calories as they might be getting quiet a few when being rewarded.
