Rivalt Kennels is a small family run hobby kennel with 20 years experience. We breed Lhasa Apso to maintain the original Apso Seng Kyi, not the show dog of today. We are also involved with Chihuahuas as of 2019. Our dogs and puppies are raised in our home, with our family. Our website offers information on the breeds, and we are always available, via email, to answer any questions you may have. If you are looking for a happy, healthy puppy, feel free to contact us.

Purchasing From Rivalt Kennels 

Good health begins with our dogs. We thoroughly health screen all our dogs, and we do the same to our puppies. They come with CKC registration packet, dewormed for roundworm, whipworm, hookworm, and tapeworm, and their puppy contract.

When our adults retire, many retire right here with us, but sometimes we look for special homes where they can be the only pet, or even just a few pets, so they can have the retirement they deserve. All are housebroken and trained. If you don't have time for a puppy, consider purchasing an adult! 

Visits by appointment only, please.  We do not ship puppies, but you are welcome to set up shipping for your new puppy, and we recommend citizenshipper.com, as they are reliable and BBB accredited. We do not accept online payments, check or cash only. If you are within driving distance of our kennel, please schedule a visit to meet your new best friend.

Puppies are given basic housebreaking, noise desensitization training, basic leash breaking, basic grooming acceptance training, early socialization, and are given experience of different flooring, such as carpet, tile, wood, concrete, and grass.

We offer a lifetime guarantee against hypothyroidosm, 1 year guarantee against genetic defects, and a 14 day guarantee against communicable disease. Yes, we do sell puppies for breeding stock, if you are looking for breeding stock please include that information in your message and we will match you with a puppy with great confirmation.

The Gold Crown Standard.... Accept nothing but the best.


About Us

A Dog Breeder With Heart

Puppies just make life better! At Rivalt Kennels, we have been building our reputation as a trusted breeder in Florida since we bred our first animals back in 1994. We take our responsibilities very seriously and strive to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our dogs. That’s why the happiest days for us are when one of our puppies is purchased by a loving and welcoming family. I began breeding Lhasa Apso when I was 12 years old, with my parents. Over the years I have fallen in love with other breeds as well, but the one thing that hasn't changed is my passion for providing the best puppies for people. I began Rivalt Kennels with the idea that quality puppies could be bred for reasonable prices without restrictive contracts. As a family business we put the same love and care into our work. We support local business, and American made, and think dog breeding should be the same!

A Humble Beginning

How We Got Started

We started breeding Lhasa Apso back in 1994. Originally we did not plan to operate as a professional dog breeder, we just had two dogs that were so wonderful we thought others might want one too. After researching and learning about breeding we began producing some beautiful dogs. In 2016 I founded Rivalt Kennels, realizing I could use what I learned with other breeds as well. Since then, we’ve known so much love, joy and excitement! Contact us to find out more.
