WHAT WE DO
At Hearts Delite, Havanese are a family affair. Our adults and puppies are cared for with TLC and no less is expected from the adoptive parents!
Heart’s Delite is a small breeder located in Ontario, Canada. We were both professional Health Care workers when we initially came upon Havanese. We wanted to find a breed that would be great therapy dogs to assist those dealing with depression and PTSD. We were dog people who had previously bred and shown Golden Retrievers and Newfoundlands.
Havanese are intelligent, loyal, dogs who have a wonderful sense of humour and are as hypoallergenic as most dogs can be. We have found that they are perfect for all ages. They are also not large dogs and can easily lie on your bed with you, or on the couch (if you allow). They are eager to please and they learn quickly. They are not fragile little dogs and in fact, are very hearty. They are perfect for therapy, agility, conformation and can run our Newfoundland ragged in our field.
As mental health professionals, we were dedicated to our clients as we are to our dogs and we wanted a Reg’d Kennel name that was meaningful, hence the name Hearts’ Delite. My Grandmother, (who was also my maid of honour at my wedding) was very special to me and hailed from a town called Hearts Delight in Newfoundland which is beautiful and looks very much like Muskoka. I wanted the same casual, comfy, environment for our kennel that my Grandmother exuded when I was a kid.
We are very discerning when it comes to the people who want one of our dogs, and you must be committed to providing love, comfort and medical attention as needed for your Hearts’ Delite puppy!
