My Father started breeding dogs in the early 1960’s. He had other large breed dogs. In 1967 when I was barely old enough to walk he purchased his first Golden Retriever and fell madly in love with their unconditional love and gentle disposition. At that moment he knew he had found his best friend and loyal companion.
Over the years of me growing up around the Golden Retriever our family felt the same passion. The Golden Retriever added much love and laughter into our home which has been passed on to other families for many years. All through my childhood and my married life my family and I have always been involved with the kennel and has spent many days with my dad as it was both our pride and joy.
Sadly my father passed away in 2001, and I continued to carry on the kennel as it has always been my love and passion for this wonderful breed.
It is always a great feeling when I get calls, emails, pictures and visits from families who have been purchasing Tomiskaway Kennel puppies from years and years ago.
My goal is to continue to produce life long healthy, gentle natured puppies that will fill your home with lots of love and laughter as it does ours.
Please feel free to come out and meet our Golden Family.
The Havanese dog-breed has long been admired for their long, silky coats – that doesn’t easily shed, their small cuddley size and expressive eyes.
They’re bred as a companion dog to the Cuban aristocracy in the early 1800’s. Over the years they’ve been known as dogs who stick closely to their owner’s side, but they’re not just any ordinary lapdog. This breed has been known to assist with handicapped, excel in dog sports, highly trainable and energetic to say the least.
The Havanese adapt well to small living spaces, they’re ideal for first pet owners, they can tolerate being alone and do well in both cold and hot weather.
They are incredibly affectionate with family and friends, friendly towards other animals and strangers as well.
Height: 8 inches to 11 inches tall at the shoulders.
Weight: 7-13 lbs.
