Welcome to my website! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
or give me a call 208-339-0977.
We have 2 Champion sired black females available to pet homes, born May 11, 2013, please visit my puppy
page for more information. I am planning my 2013
litters to be whelped the middle to end of May/beginning of June.
I am accepting names for pet homes at this time.
I do not sell anything other than pets, no matter what the quality of the puppy is.
Please remember it takes every bit as much time, effort and money to raise a pet puppy as it does a show prospect puppy,
rest assure that every puppy gets the same love and attention, no matter what quality they are.
PLEASE do NOT contact me for
full registration, especially if you have purchased a breeding dog from the
infamous "champion line" breeder in Indiana that shows pictures of her dogs being "married", or from
any of the "champion line" thieves that are selling whatever junk they have for breeding purposes, just to make
a couple hundred more dollars. Even if there are champions on the "3rd and 4th" generation back, the answer is
NO, don't waste your time or mine. If you are seriously interested in showing or have a nice champion sired stud
or bitch you want to breed, go to some shows, meet some people, find a mentor that will help you. Most of these "champion
line" breeders are pretty close to puppy mills, if they aren't right in that category, please don't support
them by buying their dogs to breed (or for pets, there are PLENTY of good breeders out there) and further perpetuate their
profits and their ill bred dogs. If a breeder SHOWS or competes in AKC events, you can rest assure we are NOT breeding for
money. Every single penny we make goes RIGHT BACK INTO THE DOGS! Our puppy money does not go to pay for vacations, buy a
new car, it goes to pay handling bills, vet bills, and to purchase new show/breeding stock that will improve what we produce!
If I do not have what you are looking for, and you don't feel like you can wait, please contact me, I will HELP you
find a good breeder!
**RARE**HARD TO FIND**
Well bred Miniature Schnauzers, in AKC recognized colors, that fit into the standard of 12"-14" in height, that
LOOK like Schnauzers, are getting harder to find amongst the masses of toys, teacups, micro, parti, liver, merle, phantom
and white dogs that are now being passed off as Miniature Schnauzers! (Well bred Miniature Schnauzers aren't really
rare or hard to find, it just takes a little more work to find nice ones!!)
Written references are on the reference page, if you would like to speak with any of my puppy parents or
my vet, please ask, it is easily arranged. Please note: I do NOT sell my puppies on the internet, my website is a tool to
show off my dogs and my puppies and to educate you, the customer about the breed, that's why there is no "buy it
now" button. I have to speak with you first, and make sure you are educated about the breed, that you know how to take
care of and train your puppy, and learn about you and your family so I know you will be a perfect match with the
puppy. All of these things are important in adding a dog/puppy to your family, and they are important to me so I have
peace of mind that my puppy is going to be well taken care of and safe.
Because I only have a few litters (2-4) per year, and I work at home
(helping the hubby on the ranch/farm), I feel I can give the pups all the attention they need, plus some. My kids and other
people are allowed to hold the pups from birth (with supervision of course), everyone is invited to play with the pups as
they grow. I believe this makes for a better pup, as they have met lots of new people, and they will know it's ok when
a stranger wants to meet them. My pups are raised in our home, they are used to the everyday noise and commotion of daily
life. House training is started about 4-5 weeks, they are ready to go out and potty (or at least play outside!). Around 6-7
weeks they are allowed to play with the adult dogs. Pups learn alot of their manners from the older dogs. All of my dogs do
very well with the pups. I don't have litters that are ready to go in the winter (due to the weather and the difficulty
with potty training), and I don't have Christmas litters (there are enough commercial breeders/puppy mills breeding
for the holidays and because buying a puppy shouldn't be a spur of the moment gotta get a gift type of thing). I do not
sell puppies for people intending to give them as "gifts". If you are shopping for a puppy as a "gift",
I need to speak with the person that the puppy is intended for, no matter what the situation.
I like to make recommendations as to which pup I feel will make a good fit into your
family, taking into account the families lifestyle and the personality of each of the pups. I do this by asking questions,
such as your work situation, other pets, age and number of kids, so on and so forth. Of course you can still take your pick,
by color or sex or personality. Typically there are several different personality types in each litter. Some are more people
oriented, others would do well with another dog or small children to play with and get their energy spent. I am very honest,
if I don't feel I have the right pup for you, I will tell you, and help you find someone that does.
Because I love your next best friend:
I get to know each puppy
individually, how their temperment is, what kind of family/lifestyle they would best fit into, how they react to different
situations and strange people or animals. Yes, you can tell pretty much what type of personality they will have
by 4-5 weeks of age, if you spend ALOT of time with them. Also, this makes it easier to make the transition from our
house to yours.
I give you a weekly, orally or in writing, whichever you prefer, until the
pup is 8 weeks old, or ready to go!) update on the activities, new skills, health, schedules and anything else you would like
to know about your puppy, as well as pictures and videos of your baby at PLAY, not a pose with props and cool lighting. This
is very time consuming, however, I want you to know your puppy when he/she gets to you. Also, we want to make sure our
babies are going to the best possible home.
I give you all the positives AND
negative aspects of our parent(s) personalities. These traits could possibly pass on the the puppy, I want you to be aware
of the individual quirks of mom/dad.
I crate train my pups at 6-7 weeks of age
(they start sleeping by themselves), this way it's less stress on the pup if they have to fly, and less stress on their
new family, as they don't cry at night when they get to their new home. It's a little rough on us the first night
or two, but if it saves a headache for the new parents, then we've accomplished something! I ask that my puppy parents
send me something that smells like their home/family, to put into the crate with their pup, that way they already know your
smell when they get to your house.
Anyone can sell you a cute puppy, but it takes hard work to
make a puppy into a good dog, and an honest person to tell you whether they have a pup that will make a wonderful fit into
your life. If I don't have something for you, and you have to have a pup right now, please feel free to contact me, I
can send you to people that I know are good breeders, and trust. I would much rather send business elsewhere, than have
someone go to a pet store or (unkowingly) a puppy mill to get a pup.
My dogs are an ACTUAL functioning part of the family. My dogs are treated the
same as our children, they are spoiled, praised, raised to respect other people and things and get "the evil eye"
and maybe a swat on the bum when they need it! Our dogs get to go to work with us, swim in the river in the summer,
sled in the snow in the winter, relax by the fire, roast hotdogs and marshmallows (of course they can't eat those
things!). I am knowledgeable about the breed, and the different lines, however, I do not know ALL the answers.
My mentors, have 80+ years combined experience with the breed. I am honest and upfront and will tell you if we don't
know an answer. I am also willing arrange for ear cropping and keep the pup until the ears are healed, if you would
like it done here! I have negotiated with our vet for a price of $300 for ear cropping. He does a beautiful job on the
ears! Depending on the age of the pup, he/she can be altered before leaving for their new home.
Schnauzers do not have to be yappy, that is a learned behavior, if the parents are yappy, and they haven't
been taught manners, the pups may also be yappy. That is something your breeder should help you with, should you start having
barking problems. One of my puppy parents recently contacted me and let me know the trainer of her obedience class is using
BREATH SPRAY in the faces on her (the trainers) dogs, to quiet them, and the dog trainer told her she needed to get her puppy
under control now (EVEN THOUGH her puppy is not yappy!). Needless to say, my puppies mom went to work immediately
finding another obedience trainer! This is cruel and mean and should not be done.
Schnauzers are non-shedding, so if you are allergic to dogs, a Schnauzer will be wonderful. There are exceptions
however, so if you are allergic to dogs, please find someone who has a Schnauzer and spend a few hours with him/her, then
go home and make sure there's not a reaction. Everyones allergies are different.
Schnauzers love to work, and have a very high drive
to be productive. They are used as drug dogs, cancer detection dogs, therapy dogs, they can work sheep, goats and even cows.
They are limited only by our imaginations. Schnauzers were not bred just to look pretty, they were originally bred as ratters,
they were working dogs in the beginning of the breed. They are good at agility, flyball, and earthdog competitions. If
you would like to put your schnauzer to work, I offer a special program, where I will refund 1/2 the purchase price of the
pup/dog, once he/she is certified/titled in that area. I currently have 2 dogs in training for Therapy, 1 for Earthdog competitions,
and would love to add more working dogs! Although Miniature Schnauzers are smaller in size, they are by no means pocket
or purse dogs. Don't expect to get your puppy and put him or her in frills and ruffles and for them to lay contently on
a satin pillow just looking pretty. It won't happen! They don't realize they are small, and they are not a Yorkie
that will tolerate being dressed up and paraded around like a clown with bows in their hair. In their minds, even at a young
age, they are every bit as big as a Mastiff!
Champion Lines: I have spent alot of time, researching, calling, asking lots of questions
to find the lines I wanted for the base of my future breeding. All of my studs are AKC Champions, all of my females
are either Champion sired or Champion sire/Champion dam or Champions themselves. I am very picky, with conformation, pedigree AND
personality. Without personality, you don't have a schnauzer! I may occasionally offer a show quality pup, at NO
additional charge, as a pet. I can not keep all the pups that are show quality, to show. I
do not and will not sell my pups for show or breeding, please do not ask. If it is your intent to show, I can
help you find a reputable show breeder in or around your area that can mentor you.
show breeders/agility competitors have a tendancy to be healthier than the local population, simply because breeders care
where their pups go, and if there is a problem with the line, test breeding may be done, or a problem dog will
be taken out of the breeding program. You don't find this in a local population, or in the "champion line"
breeders, in commercial breeders or puppy mills, because the breeders don't keep track of their pups, don't do follow-ups
with their customers, and if there is a problem with a particular dog, he/she may still be breeding, because the money is
more important than the health of the breed and the offspring produced. There is a higher incidence of retinal displasia,
juvenile cataracts and other genetic health problems in local populations. Many breeders out there are advertising their
dogs as "Champion Line", and even selling them for breeding, for outrageous prices. What they are not telling
their customers is that when the champions are 3-5 or more generations back, and the dogs have been bred to who knows what
in those 3-5 generations, the dogs tend to lose their conformation, looks and possible character. This is why you will
see dogs that may have shorter legs, longer backs, strange hair, short noses, terrible ears etc. They may
also be over or under AKC standard for height. White is not an accepted "color" by AKC, parti, chocolate,
liver and toys are not a breed, they are an intentional, man-made mutation in the breed, that is attained by serious
inbreeding. APRI, UKC, CKC (Continental Kennel Club) registries are not as reputable as AKC. Some take litters and
register them on the honor system, you can take a schnoodle litter (schnauzer/poodle), have your neighbor John who owns
the poodle that sired the litter, have him sign a paper that says yes, his poodle is a purebred schnauzer, and BOOM, you
have CKC registered schnauzer pups with really funky hair! Designer and mixed breeds may not be "the
best of both breeds". Along with the good characteristics of both breeds, they may also get genetic / character/temperament
issues from both sides. If your looking for a "designer" breed, please visit your local animal rescue, I will
guarantee they already have something "different", and they are usually already altered, and a heck of alot cheaper!
The new "Merle" schnauzer, the chocolates, livers, partis, toys, micro schnauzers are even worse, these are obviously
NOT purebred Schnauzers, but a lot are registered with AKC. Each purebred breed has their own set of genetic or aquired disorders
a pup may be pre-disposed to. Schnauzers are prone to diabetes, Von Willebrands disease, cataracts, epilepsy,
liver shunts etc.
Please be aware there is a new scam going around
where a breeder can buy an "American Champion" certificate. Also be aware that any champions
on a dogs pedigree will be verifiable by AKC or through research on the internet. If you have any doubts as to the champions
in a dogs line, you can do a search online and usually get your answer as to whether or not a dog has earned
his/her champion title. APRI/CKC (Continental Kennel Club) "champions" or "show" dogs, are more
or less a scam. The requirements to "show" these dogs do not even require the dogs coats to be stripped or even
clippered in an appropriate Schnauzer pattern, never name the fact they take whatever color and size is presented before
them. Basically these breeders pay an entry fee to parade their ill bred, ill groomed dogs in front of a judge for 5 minutes,
to earn a piece of paper and a big ribbon that says "APRI Champion". Then of course they have "Champion"
dogs, and can then jack up their prices.
