About Charlotte and Pete Ventura
Los Arriba Havanese Breeders
AKC Certified Professional Dog Handlers
My name is Charlotte Ventura. My husband, Peter and I are AKC/PHA handlers of over thirty years. We show all breeds, but choose the Havanese breed as our life’s work. We are dedicated to breeding the best quality Havanese with an emphasis on health and temperament and bred to the AKC standards.
We have been consistently presenting top winning Havanese to the fancy. Together with our co-breeders we have won three national specialty “Best In Show” awards, numerous “All-Breed Best In Show” awards and multiple group placements. We have also won “Best Puppy” at the Havanese Nationals, twice! We have finished over 100 Havanese champions.
We are currently on our 6th generation of beautiful, healthy Havanese. The oldest is currently 17 years. None of this would have ever been possible without the guidance of those before us who were kind enough to share their knowledge and their beautiful dogs with us. As the breed has grown in popularity so have it’s problems. It is our goal to share our experience with others and to educate in order to preserve the breed we have come to love so much.
