"The Havanese Club of G.B. was formed in 1994 and membership is open to anyone who has an interest in Havanese not just those who show dogs. Our activities centre around the Breed Shows we put on each year although from from time to time we arrange Health clinics and seminars both on Judging and Grooming as well as talks on Breeding and associated doggie issues."
They are the only Havanese Club recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club.
"In 1979, a small group of dedicated Havanese fanciers assembled for the purpose of forming a national breed club for the Havanese, the Havanese Club of America. One of the goals was to seek AKC recognition for our breed. At that time, there were nine members and the Havanese was considered a 'rare' breed. Today the HCA has 400+ members and the Havanese is a member of the Toy Group with full recognition by AKC".
Havannalaiset ry is the official breed club for bichon havanais in Finland.
