Maplewood Silks

The Vermont breeder of the amazing Havana Silk Dog

Havana Silk Dogs are the best small companion breed around! Hypoallergenic, smart, playful, and cuddly, they’re always ready for a romp in the woods or a snuggle on the couch. 

Our next breeding is planned for late Spring 2024. Contact us for more info.

Health Testing

We thoroughly health test all dogs before breeding them, as well as requiring they pass an independent conformation evaluation. In collaboration with BetterBred at UC Davis, we use the genomic information available to minimize inbreeding and maximize genetic health.

Health Guarantee

We guarantee the health of our puppies against any serious or life-threatening diseases for the first year of their life. We also offer a lifetime health guarantee against inherited or congenital diseases.

Optimal Early Learning

Happy, healthy dogs begin their lives in an environment optimized for their socialization and early learning. We follow the Avidog program to help bring out the best in our puppies.

Lifetime Breeder Support

Breeder support doesn’t end when you bring your puppy home – we remain available to consult on any questions or problems you may have for the entire life of your dog.

Our Family of Silks

Our breeding program selects for the most desirable traits, maximizing breed conformation and health both physically and mentally. We use all tools available at our disposal to carefully select the optimal stud for each pairing. We participate in the BetterBred genomic database at UC Davis, allowing us to minimize inbreeding and preserve rare and unique genes of this wonderful breed.
