Swimmer and leaper into swimming pools. Obedience trained and a group winning show dog. Will walk for miles, our most powerful Havanese.

Fun Tidbits

He loves car rides and flirting with the girls. When the girls talk him into it, none of them can catch him at the classic run like hell game except Spice.


Kat is an Intact male stud and proud of it.

More Insight

Kat is our alpha male Havanese. His favourite summer sport is leaping into the swimming pool with his human daddy, me. As he is in full long flowing show coat it can be a chore after the fact to groom him but who could deny him. He loves it so much. Kat has completed three 6-8 week entry level Obedience courses, (the type of Obedience courses any puppy should take) flunked out of Agility because his daddy, me again, couldn't keep up with him and finally last July, entered his first Conformation show ring. The second time he was shown he not only won breed but got a Group 2. The third time he showed he won the Toy group and competed for Best in Show following in the footsteps of his own sire, one of the great Havanese champions of his generation and indeed of the past 10 years, Buster, AM CDN MEX and FCI Int'l Champion  Starkette Pride of Wincroft. Once Kat's show career is over he and I will go back and start getting serious about Obedience trials. I think he'll be quite good at it and I might be able to keep up.
