Hello!
I just wanted to thank you for your page on schnauzer grooming. I used it as a guide while giving my own dog, Ogie, a haircut for the incoming summer weather.

I usually get him into the groomers once a year and do some small touch ups when he gets a little too scruffy, but he just recently developed cataracts. Add in moving to another town and he obviously is a little anxious with new people and places right now. This grooming guide helped me a lot and I feel relieved I could do everything for him at home. :)

So, thank you Barry and Diane.

Can hardly wait to see and love our little Joey. Going to Charlottetown to get him on Sunday and bring him to his new home. January the 3rd, 2013.
It has been a great experience already. We started bonding with all the pics we can see on the website and Diane answers all of our questions quickly and with great knowledge.
Can't wait, 3 more sleeps.
Love Kelly and Sean Tanner.

I found your site through a search on what homemade food to feed my mini-schnauzers. My 3 yr. old female recently had a bladder stone removed. The Royal Canine and Hill's food the vet recommends for urinary health is made of animal by-products and lots of corn, so I refuse to feed that to my two minis. I am searching for what to do. Zoey already had vomitting and diahrrea, when we started feeding her the Royal Canine, because of the high fat content and corn. I want to do whatever I can to prevent further stones from forming in either of my dogs. The Vet is not in favor of my preparing foods for them. I was hoping to provide a balanced diet and supplement with a multivitamin, with Vitamin C (to help make the urine acid), fish oil and the vet put Zoey on prescription probiotic powder made by Purina, since her bowels are loose, after being on anitbiotics for 2 1/2 weeks.

Hi there, my wife and I currently have a 2 year old Boston Terrier named Kenny! He gets along really well with a Mini Schnauzer at our local off-leash dog park. We are looking to maybe get him a new friend, to keep him company, as he has a lot of energy, and needs another doggy around to keep him busy. We may be looking you up in the near future. Thanks

Hi,

Looking for a Toy size Schnauzer that maybe has some minor flaw!

I don't think I could pay full price and would dearly love to have one of these little guys.

So if you have one that doesn't quite make the grade that I could take off your hands at less cost, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks,

Wayne :(

I have a beautiful grey girl with one cute white paw . We got her at ten months old after already having a litter, awful. She is lying next to me as I write. In two short years she has taken over the household. Stubborn, sweet, hates squirrels!! Loved reading your page and seeing all your beautiful girls and boys.

I think your site is great!! It consolidates a lot of information that I had to dig through tons of books to find.

A suggestion for your shock collar page. I'm also against ever using electric shock for training small animals; We know that it doesn't work to get cooperation from humans; why would anyone suppose it would work better on dogs?

Anyway, I recently saw a remote collar at a Goodwill store for $3, and noticed that it had one sets of buttons for shock and a second for audio tone. The collar itself was worth $3 so I bought it, removed the electrodes from the receiver, and disabled the shock buttons on the controller. It now can be used either as a substitute for a clicker OR as a cue at distances up to several hundred feet (wouldn't suggest doing both with any one dog). I've since seen tone-only collars, both anti-bark and remote.

My husband and I have a silver miniature schnauzer name Liesl. She is such a sweetheart! She will be 3 this October, we have had her since she was all black and 9 weeks old. She is my "happy-happy, joy-joy". I live with clinical depression and she has made a huge difference in my day! We had a miniature schnauzer when we were first married (34 years ago!) named Bella. The kids (3) grew up with her as their constant companion. We think that miniature schnauzers are absolutlely the BEST!!!

Peppi is my 2nd salt and pepper, mini schnauzer 3 1/2 yo with a nice tail. Needless to say I spoil her rotten. I stumbled on to your website after researching hyperlipidemia. Your food info is invaluable. I currently feed Peppi a mix of home made raw and dry but after reading your info I might try Eagle Pack tin into the mix. Keeping a lid on her weight is always a challenge.
Thanks again for the great info. If I lived in Canada I would get my next mini from you. thanks from "Down Under"

Dear Diane,
I have been adoptingn rescued Mini's for several years but have never been able to adopt a black and silver one. Dogs with these markings are rarely seen in rescue and when they are they seem to always stay with their foster parents! Perhaps some day if I REALLY want a black and silver I'll have to contact you. Regards, Constance Bridge

Beautiful dogs. I like the idea of keeping their tails. Also not cropping their ears. I had only one dog that has cropped ears.

Thank you for your grooming tips, left me feeling as if I could actually do this.

I also enjoyed all the beautiful pictures of your dogs.

I can't hardly imagine that there would be a Schnauzer that would need rescued but thankfully there are wonderful people who come to their aid.

Hi
My family and I are huge dog lovers. We currently have a border collie. We have been
researching breeds as our last dog was a rescue and we are thinking a schnauzer may be a #1 love so far.
Could you tell me a little bit more about this breed? My computer wouldn't let your links load.
Thank you

How wonderful to find your page. Was looking to find tips on hair cutting for my mini, Max. I have been doing everything just right by you. Just keeping myself updated. Your page was extremely easy to follow and visuals always help. It sounds like you have a wonderful and full family life. We only have Max and would like to find a female companion for him. Absolutely love this breed. No shedding is what sold me in the first place and I fell sooo in love with our Max. He is our everything. Thanks again for having a great page!!

I love my minature schnauzer,she was 7 when i rescued her 6 years ago, she has brought me so much joy. sadly I feel she won't be with us much longer and it breaks my heart. I have followed your website for quite some time, and when i retire in the next couple of years i will make the trip (my first to PEI) to see your wonderful dogs.and to hopefully bring one home.

We love your website and you have so many precious adorable family members! Excellent and very helplful information and awesome photos! :-) We have our two boys from the same litter, Max and Mochi (named by their breeders, who had both mom (Dixie who was white) and dad (Dallas who was salt & pepper) in their home locally). Mochi (white) is firstborn and Max (salt & pepper) is thirdborn. They are amazing family members! Their tails were docked when we got them but, their ears are not cropped. They are such sweet boys and we love them so much! Thanks so very much for all y'all do and for sharing with all of us too!!! :-)

I am the happy owner of a Mini Schnauzer complete with natural tail and ears!I commend you for your commitment to stop the practice of routinely docking tails and clipping ears. I wish this were more commonly practiced in the US, but I'm afraid we are way behind the times in this aspect :(
Thank you!

Great site and looks like the type of place I will be interested in for my next mini-schnauzer. I like the idea that they are all in your home and not outside in cages. Very nice! :)

I love your site! We just purchased a schnauzer puppy before Christmas, her name is Zoey. I was searching for a site that would give me complete information on the breed without trying to sell me something to get the information I was looking for and your site fit the bill, so thank you for being a devoted breeder who really cares about their dogs!

Thank you for a great site! I have been feeding Royal Canin Miniature Schnauzer 25. My dog has very dry flakey skin, so I have been considering a change. Your site was very helpful.

What a truly amazing website !!! Your dogs are just fantastic and I am very impressed by your dedication towards and love for the breed.
My step-Grandmother was the proud owner of a Mini Schnauzer(Bonzo) and he was a very well loved member of our family.
We are heading up to PEI in July 2012 and would love to come and visit you all as we are considering adding a mini Schnauzer to our family. :)

So enjoyed your videos!

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all of this wonderful and knowledgable information about the breed! I have a lovely three year old black mini schnauzer named Tux and I am sure he will appreciate all of the new tips I picked up here as far as types of food to try.
Happy holidays.

I loved your website and your beautiful dogs. We were recently devastated by the loss of our 12 year old salt and pepper mini schnauzer/west highland terrier cross (he looked like a schnauzer with a westie tail), Sprite. His favourite place was the beach in PEI. We plan on being owned by another schnauzer when we retire in 2013. Would love one of your dogs and to visit next summer when I'm in PEI.
