Kudos for you! I also do not dock my mini schnauzers' tails. I think it is cruel, and I wish it was illegal here in the U.S. It is very hard to find homes for the puppies with their tails on, but I think it is for the best that they do not undergo the procedures.

We have an adorable salt and pepper Minature Schnauzer He is just 5 months old. We are struggling with house training but we are determined to get it right. My hubby and myself have lost a considerable weight. as Maxie is gaining fine he is now 13.5 lbs and stands 13 inched ground to shoulder.
Our lives have been enriched by this little gentlepup so much, that it is hard to remember life before him. :ohmy: Onr question we feed him 1 cup of Nutra for puppys 3 x's a day and some days a little less, but he is pooing like a big doggy should we cut back?? and also when should his first cut be done?? thank you so much for your time.

We recently lost our second Mini Schnauzer Sam aged 12, our other Schnauzer Jake passed away 2 years ago from cancer aged 10. When the time is right we will be getting another Schnauzer. Looking at the pictures on your site has brought back lots of memories. Love your site and would one day love to visit PEI, the landscape is such a contrast to where we live!

Anderson just took over our house and hearts a few weeks ago. He is a white mini and we all love him. We are first time owners and are very, very impressed by mini's demeanor. Anderson is 14 weeks old and he is sleeping in his kennel in our bedroom with the kennel door open.which he walked into himself! Thank you for all of the information on the breed and love your site.

We are interested in purchasing a Miniature Shnauzer in the near future. We lost our 15 year old Toy American Eskimo last February 16, 2008, and felt that we didn't want to go through that hurt again, but now I think that we are ready. I could write a book about her, but will tell you that she was a good, obedient little dog who we loved, and the only reason that I wouldn't get another is because she wouldn't be Kiisha, and I am afraid that we would look for the same attributes.

Your website was extremely helpful to me as I am just starting to groom Betsy myself, and I wanted to get it right. I appreciate your comments about shaving with the grain. I have had 4 schnauzers in my life and have seen the irritation and damage when "professional" groomers have shaved against the grain, also I was happy to see your comments about pulling the hair from their ears. Ouch. Enjoyed your pictures immensely. Thank you.

Just happened onto your website. It helped me looking for dog food. We have a mini-schnauzer named Angel born 12/16/06. We had a fox terrier before who died of kidney failure at only 9 yrs. I've oftened wondered why we feed our dogs grain and veggies when they mainly lived on meat over history. We have a meat processor here that makes all meat frozen dog food since 1997. It is J.J.Fudds. I just found out about them.

enjoyed your site. Was looking for tips on glooming for our babies, Baby & Buddy. Baby is black and Buddy is salt & pepper. We've had Baby 3 yrs and Buddy 2. We love them both so much.
I will be returning for more information, thank you for what you do for Schnauzers.

Love your site! Your dogs are gorgeous! Our Oskar boy is a 1-year-old mini who really is the world's best dog - so cute and funny and cuddly and smart! He looks just like your Phoenix did, but unfortunately his little tail was docked before we got him. I'm so glad you are leaving the dogs' tails 'au natural!' Bravo!

My wife and I have 2 8 month old mini schnauzes, Mochi and Max, Mochi is a platinum and Max is a salt and pepper, they are brothers from the same litter. Already they are members of our family and usually go everywhere with us. I am looking to train them to go to the golf course and ride the cart. You guys have a wonderful site and a good looking family of schnauzers.

Hello! I am from Lafayette, Louisiana, and I just want to say that your puppies and dogs are beautiful and precious! I am a huge dog lover and planning on getting a mini schnauzer whenever I move out of my apartment, which will be in a month or two. Your information has been so helpful, and I will defnintely refer back whenever I do decide to get a pup. Thanks!

Best sight for the mini schnauzer! I will be getting a puppy from a breeder friend in June and I wanted loads of info on the breed and on raising a puppy as I have always been a cat owner!
The pics are the BEST! I can't wait to get my little guy!
I will visit your site often!
Thanks!

Your "children" are beautiful. I am glad to hear about your stance on tail cropping. I have owned schnauzers for the past 19 years. My current baby, Myles, will be 8 in June. My other boy, Dee, passed away in August at the age of 19. I plan to adopt a new addition soon and will make sure that he or she has a full tail and ears. Great pictures:)

My husband and I currently are "owned and adored by" (and the sentiment is mutual) a wonderful little girl Mini Schnauzer that we named Neahleyna. we just call her Neah. She is by far, THE BEST and MOST LOVING dog that we have EVER owned! We will NEVER have another breed. I love your site, and have bookmarked it for future reference, whether for referral or if we choose to get another down the road. Thank you for all of the helpful info. After reading your site, and following your step-by-step instructions, I can proudly say that I, myself, just groomed and clipped Neah. and she looks FABULOUS (My husband says I need to change professions!)

Greetings from White Stone, Virginia,
I have so enjoyed reading and studying your website.
I found it very informative as we are looking for new mini. We have been blessed with two now both waiting at Rainbow Bridge.
Thank you for being responsible mini schnauzer breeders.

I am sitting here looking at your site for the first time with my little 3year old Schnauzer Barkley sleeping on my lap. I am so impressed with your ideas breeding and raising these special dogs. Barkley has been raised as one of the family since we brought him home. We visited and held him since his birth at the breeders' and the bond with him is undescribable. You are to be congradulated for all of your efforts with this most wonderful breed of dog. I am looking to add a friend to Barkley's life and would love to be considered for one of your litters. Have a great day and again, Barkley and I thank you for all that you are contributing to this breed.

Your puppies a beautiful, nice to you do not tramatize these little beauties.
We have a white boy 12wks old, he was added to our family 3 wks ago " Oscar", as we had to put our 6 yr old boy to sleep due to pancreatis and diabetic. it was a shock, for him to get so sick so fast. We also have a girl"Suzie".

Enjoyed looking at all the pictures of your crews! We have two boys, Cisco - who is white and our newest, Pancho who is salt and pepper. I owned minis in the past , but lost them in an ugly divorce - it like to have killed me, but all things happen for a reason and I have been led to the ones I have now and couldn't love them more if I tried! Your site is very informative and I salute you for taking the step to leave your pups natural - I wish more people would do so. Keep up the good work. Cisco and Pancho say, "Roo roo roo!"

Your site is well-designed and very informative. Your dogs are lovely. I am particularly fond of the Black and Silver. I have lived for 13 years with a Standard Schnauzer who has just been diagnosed with cancer. I do not know if it is a good idea to get a puppy at this time or wait until she has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but I know I will have another dog.

I enjoyed visiting your website. I appreciate what you are doing for this special breed. I have a 2y.o. s/p male mini, "Gimli", who is my darling! I am sad to say he came to me with a docked tail, but he has natural ears. I agrre with your philosophy. Keep up the good work! The next time I consider adopting another mini, I will definitely consider your kennel.

We just lost our 'Darby'unexpectedly. She was with us for 11 years. It is like losing a child. We did everything with her, camping,etc. When the time comes to fill that void, it will be without a doubt another mini schnauzer.

We LOVE tails. We are a Scottish family currently living in Texas and are unable to find any breeders who do not cut the puppies tails. They think that we are strange wanting a puppy with a beautiful, natural tail!

Thank you for being champions for natural tail and ears.

Ginny
Wow, I have never seen a natural tail on a schnauzer before. I love it, and agree that is more humane to leave it natural. I hope more people realize the real beauty of the natural tail, than having them needlessly snipped off. Being from the United Sates it is very rare to see and hope that the A.K.C. wakes up and changes their breed standard policy for all dogs with docked tails.

I was surfing the web looking for Schnauzers and found your web site. I have 2 Schnauzers Lucy 8 and Carly 2 they are the love of my life. They are so good so smart just woderful members of my family. They give so much more than I can ever give them. I was first surprized that the tails were not docked but after reading, I certainly agree. I am glad you care so much, Thank You

Our mini, Boomer, was given to us from a 'home breeder'. As such, I was able to ask that nothing be done to him, other than his shots of course. Six years later, his tail has never been damaged, and people question his 'schnauzerhood' constantly! It seems that no one has ever seen a shcnauzer with a tail! I applaud you for moving away from a useless and painful practice!!

Hello,

We have miniature schnauzer named Ted. He is currently 13 and will be 14 in May.

We are thinking about getting another mini Schnauzer pup in the spring or summer. Ted is the best dog. He is truly all things a Schnauzer is written about. He was diagnosed with a heart problem at one and he did very well with this troughout his life. He would have required a pacemaker but happily that was not the case. In the last year and a half, Ted is experiencing incontinence due to bladder stones. An attempt at surgery was not possible due to his heart. We have grown to live with the occasional accident on the floor.

Ted is a very social dog. He really loves other dogs and so many say how Ted is the only dog that their dog gets along with. Ted is really an amazing guy.

I have two children who are 8 and 11. They are quite responsible and they love Ted enormously. He feels the same about them though Ted was not great with children until my oldest was born. He took his place in the pack and the rest is history.

I am not sure whether I should get a puppy at this point in Ted's life. I have a small home with yard not fenced. I walk Ted everyday at least a half and hour regardless of weather. He really loves to walk. We have kept each other healthy over the years.

Would you have any advice on getting a puppy given the fact that Ted has been the only dog here for so long.

Thanks for your time

We just lost our Buster to cancer almost a week ago. He was 10 years old. You pictures brightened my family up. We are looking for another mini schnauzer. Although he won't replace Buster, I am sure he will have his own stories.

Our Jasper looks very similar to your Remi. I found your site when I was looking at what clippers to buy. Our groomer has sold up and the new people are not very good. So as I am an ex hairdresser I thought I would have a try. Your site is very informative and I love the photos. Jasper is very much part of our family. We used to have big dogs but I was tired of all the shedding of fur. After having Jasper who is aged 4 I wouldn't have anything else. :(

huh Hello! I am an 11-year-old girl who wants some information on breeding. (And I've already had the talk) My friend wants to breed her mini schnauzer, which is almost 2. Is that too young to breed a dog? They already have a stud for her, and it's white. But I don't feel colour is a very important factor in breeding. So is it too young to breed??? unsure

This is a wonderful site :thumb . I had a mini schnauzer, named Keechia, for 9 years. Unfortunatley, she developed cancer, and we had to put her down in 2003 :sad: . I would love to have another schnauzer, as they are an amazing breed. Very affectionate and active.

Hello! I am from El Salvador Central America, and we have a male Schnauzer named Rocky, He is 2 years old, and we adopted him a year ago, from a house where they didnt want him. Since then, he has been a great addition for our family. He is energetic, we have to walk him twice a day. We love him and He sure loves us. Schnauzers are great dogs!!!!

Take care.

I have enjoyed your site and keep it in my favorite book because it has helped me with questions and concerns I had. We just got CocoKisses 1 1/2 weeks ago and she is 8 weeks old. Housetraing is going well because we pay attention to her. Crate training has gone well also. My five year old has no qualms about taking her outside either, which helps. This puppy is the center of the family right now and is so loved. Our indoor cat, Bubba, loves her too and gives "baths". Coco was the best Christmas gift for Bubba.
