Less than $1200
Havanese puppies for sale that are less than $1200 are generally being raised in puppy mills or by backyard breeders. They may also breed more than one kinds of dogs. This is a warning sign and they should be avoided. From poor breeding and socialization, they lose the excellent temperament of the Havanese and their breeding practices ("line" or "inbreeding") lead to Health and Genetic problems. Puppies that are born and raised in this environment are not held, loved or socialized. There is usually little or no licensing or training with these breeders.

Look for a breeder, in this price range, who is also licensed and inspected by the United States Government just like we are.
$2200 - and up
The last group of Havanese breeders basically breed for the same qualities and goals as the second group. The only difference is that their dogs are being shown in competitions around the country. This seems to be the competitive group. These breeders tend to ask a higher price for their puppies since they travel around and show a number of their dogs. They feel that since some of their dogs have achieved champion status that the offspring of those dogs are worth more.
ASSESSMENT: Higher price for an excellent quality puppy. These will also most likely have excellent health and good temperament at the above $2200 range.
