We have had more people make reservations for this National than any we have had before!
We have been able to add rooms at our group rate for October 14th -17th BUT NOT on October 18th or 19th if you would like to make a reservation for the available days at the group rate.
Please call 702-796-3322 or 702-796-3300 to make a reservation or to check on your reservation. Remember you need to specify if you need a lower level room and/or a room close to the ballroom. You will need to tell them that you are making a reservation for the Havanese Club of America 2019 National Specialty to get the group rate. You also need to tell them if you are going to have a dog in the room. The hotel has asked us to make sure everyone knows that they will be strictly enforcing their policy of which rooms are allowed to have dogs. A FINE OF $700.00 WILL BE IMPOSED BY THE HOTEL IF THEIR POLICY IS NOT ADHERED TO.
This hotel can't do a wait-list for us, but they are willing to work with us to try and get everyone a room that wants one.
But, we need your help!
If anyone is going to cancel their reservation please DO NOT CANCEL and contact Claudia first. Claudia will work with her hotel wait-list to move someone into your room.
Please be sure to send Claudia :
-----The date that you are checking in and out
-----The type of room (i.e. double, single)
-----Whether you were bringing a dog
-----Your email address
-----Your phone number
Similarly, if you're waiting for a reservation, please contact Claudia and let her know what you're looking for (see the above list) so she can check availability in her wait-list information about cancellations.”
If you are looking for information about Havanese, you've come to the right place! We are the Havanese Club of America (HCA) - the national AKC Parent Club for the Havanese breed. Here on our website, you will find information about our club as well as information about the Havanese breed itself.
NOTE: The interest in obtaining a Havanese from a breeder that does all the health testing exceeds availability. It is possible that a person may have a wait of six months to two years to obtain the “right” one for them. You may be unable to find Havanese Breeders in your location, as Breeders are not in all states. You more than likely may have to travel to pick up your Havanese.
You may find available puppies from breeders listed on the Internet. Please make sure they do health testing on the sire and dam of the litter. You must receive documentation of all health testing done. The HCA recommends BAER a test for hearing, CERF, a test for eyes, OFA- Hips and Patella's. Many breeders do additional testing such as Bile acid for liver, Legg-Calve-Perthes and Heart test. These tests are for the sire and dam of the litter as the puppies will be too young for most of them. A tested and healthy sire and dam mean better odds of good health for the puppies as well as a conscientious breeder. 10 Questions to ask your breeder and a pdf of the questions
