About Charlotte and Pete Ventura

Charlotte and Pete Ventura - Professional Dog Handlers and Los Arriba Havanese

Havanese Breeders

AKC Certified Professional Dog Handlers

My name is Charlotte Ventura. My husband, Peter and I are Havanese breeders as well as AKC/PHA handlers for 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,  temperament, and  breeding 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.
