About Lancaster's of Gold Canyon

Lucy and Bobbi Lancaster are the owners of Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon. We have a small breeding program. Our dogs are first and foremost cherished members of our family and live in our home with us. We started with our first Havanese in 2005 and have never looked back. We are proud members of the Havanese Club of America and the Havanese Fanciers of Canada.   We are Breeders of Merit with the American Kennel Club and have an “Excellent” rating with Good Dog. Our goal is to produce happy and healthy Havanese puppies who typify the AKC Breed Standard.  Our puppies are primarily produced to provide exceptional companionship for families.  


My husband and I were wintering in Arizona when we found Lucy Lancaster and her wonderful
Havanese breeding program. She was recommended by our trainer and lives very close to our
winter location. After talking on the phone and visiting her home, we asked to be placed on
her waiting list for the next litter of pups. Rocco is now eight months old and the most
adorable little guy. He is active, smart and loving. He and our three year old Westie, Duke get
along as if they were always together. He has enhanced all of our lives. We laugh at their
antics, and Duke has become more active as they play and chase each other around the house
and yard. Lucy has been a continuing resource for us sending pictures, videos and articles of interest about Havanese.  If you want a well-bred Havanese puppy, you should contact Lancaster’s of Gold
Canyon. RS


My sweet girl is Lancaster’s Black Caviar. I call her Beluga. It is no accident that she is the gentle, trusting, well-adjusted, happy puppy I know and love. Lucy Lancaster, AKC Breeder of Merit and Owner of Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon Havanese, literally made her that way... through outstanding breeding choices over the past 10 years, and through the way she raises all her puppies while in her loving care. How do I know? Lucy keeps every new family-to-be updated with daily messages, loads of photos and videos chronicling all the puppies’ progress. She exposes them to a wealth of stimuli, including all sorts of visitors, sounds, experiences, all manner of other species, etc. She even has them well on their way to being potty and leash trained before they leave for their new homes. Remarkable! I am continually in awe of the love, dedication, time and effort Lucy puts into the well being of all her dogs and puppies.

As if that were not enough, Lucy is always there for us after we take our precious puppies home. We can call or write anytime forever more for help. That’s true puppy love!

Knowing all this first hand, I can honestly say I would never, ever consider getting a puppy from anyone other than Lucy Lancaster, and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone interested in getting the best puppy imaginable. B'OB


After over one year of research we concluded that the Havanese would fit our lifestyle the best. To our surprise we found a breeder in our area. We believe the breeder, Lucy, has as much passion toward her puppies as any parent has toward their children. While we were waiting in great anticipation to take our puppy home, Lucy went far beyond our expectations in providing us with many pictures and updates as to her development. On the highly anticipated day when we picked Bella up, Lucy spent a lot of time in providing us in-depth information on her care. Bella was already litter box and crate trained which made the transition to our home so easy! Since then she has created so much joy and delight in our home. She is very smart, playful and a constant close companion. She is very welcoming to all our friends and strangers too, and loves playing with children. She was great on recent road-trips to the southern Colorado Rockies and The Grand Canyon. Bella is now a joyous part of our family and she always keeps us smiling! JR


Our Havanese, Tyson, is the best thing to ever happen to our family! Besides being precious, he is very smart and playful. I had researched Havanese breeders for upwards of a year before finding Lucy of Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon. I went to visit the puppy first, to make sure he was going to be a “fit” for our family; my husband is not a dog lover and was hesitant to have a dog. After spending 2 hours with Lucy, I knew this puppy would be mine. A few days later, we went again as a family to visit Lucy and the puppy. Making the best decision of our lives, Tyson, came home with us! He is, and continues to be, the greatest source of happiness for our family! Thanks to Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon, we are proud owners of a wonderful dog!!! JB


Tess has been a part of our lives for one and a half years now, and I 
can honestly say she has lived up to one of her puppy nicknames, Mary 
Poppins, because she is practically perfect in every way. I am sure she 
is so wonderful because of Lucy-who is genuine, caring, 
straightforward, loving, and an expert in the breed and in raising puppies.

I know that it is Lucy's amazing breeding program that has produced this 
dog. Her breeding for temperament, structure, and health, combined with 
the truly loving, stimulating, and enriching environment from conception 
to adoption day has made this happen. Further, Lucy doesn't abandon her 
puppy families once they go out the door, but stays in close contact, 
answering any questions as they arise, taking delight in updates, 
celebrating when one of her former puppies succeeds in something. A year 
and a half later, we couldn't be happier with Tess or Lucy. We feel so 
blessed to be a part of the Lancaster family! KB


Our experience with Lucy Lancaster has been the most exciting and rewarding experience, not just the wonderful puppy that joined our family, also including waiting for a puppy. As strange as that may sound, I brag on our breeder whenever I have the chance. The visits, videos, emails and photo updates put Lucy in a class of breeder that is sadly unheard of today. She keeps us involved, educated, entertained and excited.
Our 1st visit was almost 1 year ago, we got to meet one "spoken for" litter, the adult dogs and of course Lucy. As we were interacting with all of the Havanese she asked about our home life, how we saw this puppy fitting in and which of her adult dogs we liked best. We did not know we were already being interviewed for the upcoming union of our new puppy. Once the puppies were old enough for visitors, we were eager to book visit times, and we were able to come multiple times to play with the puppies. Lucy's home is always clean and comfortable, the dogs are always interested in being petted and loved on, and the socialization process is obviously under way. There is a soundtrack playing with crying babies, fireworks, trucks and other loud noises.
We have been so blessed to be part of the Lancaster's of Gold Canyon Havanese lineage. Looking forward to meeting other families/dogs at the fall party and we plan to have play dates with our litter mates. This is a family and it shows. 
Thank you Lucy for the missing piece of our crew, Havana has changed us all for the better and I can't imagine life without our wonderful little pup. KH


When my friend told me that after a year of researching dogs she was getting a Havanese puppy, I decided our family needed one too. I went online and found Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon and fell in love with a little black-and-white female puppy. Not having animals since I was a child, I was very apprehensive about how to care for a puppy. Lucy practically held my hand throughout the whole process of what I needed to buy, what and when to feed her and how to bathe and take care of her. After our extensive research of other breeders and our exceptional experience with Lancaster’s of Gold Canyon, we highly recommend them if you are considering a Havanese puppy. Lucy gives so much care and love to every puppy. She works with the puppies at all stages of their development up to and after the point that your new addition goes home with you – something we found to be very unique compared to other breeders. Havanese are easy and fun to train. Oreo is trained in agility courses, as a tennis ball return girl and knows every trick imaginable. Lucy, after almost three years, still takes the time to answer my questions and offer me advice. She offers boarding services; therefore, I get a worry-free vacation and Oreo gets to play with her mom, siblings and other puppies in a familiar, loving environment. We feel like we are a part of the Lancaster family and they are a part of ours. You simply won’t find a better Havanese breeder. SS


We had our first Havanese for 11 years, and we just love the breed.  After doing my research, I found Lucy and Lancasters of Gold Canyon.  And we are beyond words to express how grateful we are to have a puppy from Lancasters.  Lucy does an incredible job with keeping you informed of the pregnancy, the birth, and daily updates (and photos!) on the health and wellbeing of each puppy.  She is a passionate breeder who loves each dog and is devoted to producing high-quality, well-adjusted puppies.  Lucy spends a great deal of time potty training the puppies as well as leash training.  She exposes them to all kinds of sights and sounds, and works hard to socialize the puppies.  In addition to the time Lucy gives to each puppy, she also provides incredible support to us new human moms!  You get lots of great advice and recommendations of how to be ready when your puppy comes home as well as questions answered promptly when you need help.  I would highly recommend Lucy and Lancaster's of Gold Canyon.  We are so full of joy to have Abby in our lives, as well as the Lancaster family.  Thank you Lucy!
