You have a wonderful website. I was searching for the proper way to groom the legs of my two mini's. (I have a solid black and a solid white - both females.) I won't take my babies to a groomer anymore b/c the last time the groomer burned their little bodies. They were so miserable - I took them to the vet and he prescribed prednisone for the skin irritations.

Your animals truly look wonderful and well cared for!! What a pleasure you must get from these wonderful creatures. Keep up the good work.

Hi! My name is Samantha and I am eleven years old! I absolutely adore mini Schnauzers and think yours are amazing! I have always wanted a puppy and am trying to prove to my parents I am responsible enough for one, and that Mini schnauzers are the best breed! Thank you for the pictures and not docking the pups tails and ears! They are so much prettier with them intact! Love you're website and dog photos!!!!!! Good luck for Finding them all homes! :)

I have just got home with a beautiful 2 month old mini schnauzer. I had been researching small dogs and was hesitating because most people said they are too energetic and bark constantly. When I saw my Billy I couldn't resist.within about 30 seconds she was like putty in our hands. Her tail is unfortunately docked but not her ears, thank goodness! My husband is presently on sick leave and I found your site very helpful especially since you give tricks for both at home and at work families. Thank you very much!! :o))

:P If IO were to bring my miniture schnauzer, he would ahave went crazy, he doesnt really like other dogs but for some odd reason he loves cats lol, his name is Max, but his nickname is Panda Bear. If your wondering why i call him Panda Bear, its because if you put his ears a certian way he looks just like a solid black panda bear :question:

cute dogs by the way .:-:. :thumb

My family had to put down our miniature schnauzer a year ago. It was very hard for us. We had had him for 15 1/2 years. His name was Buck. :sad:

Toby, our oldest Schnauzer, has been with us for 7 years. Duncan, our younger Schnauzer, just a year now and tomorrow I am going to groom them myself for the 1st time. Usually they go to a professional to get their hair cut, but any more its getting way to expensive. So we agreed to trim them up ourselves between professional cuts. Your website has been a great learning tool. Thank you so much!

Jeff and Chris Draper
Just wanted to say "HI!". There are 9 Miniature Schnauzers in our family history! Sadly we have lost 3 now (Emma 3yrs old to a family separation, Misty the matriarch who had a long and good life of 16 years, and Nikki our loving baby just 6 years old to cancer.God needed her home with him). Still together are Sarah 11, Tasha 5, Kali 4, Paige 3, Sugar 3, and Makenzie 2. Three generations of humans are owned by these pups!!!
We truly love all our "nauzers".

May God bless you in your efforts to make the world a better Schnauzer place!!

Amanda Taylor & Isabel
:P What a great website for Schnauzer lovers! We are owned by Isabel, an 18 month old Mini and a 4 1/2 year old Westie boy Alfred.
This site is a mine of information and I will definately be back to swot up on my grooming techniques.
I´m so glad you support the ban on ear, dew claw and tail docking. Isabel had her dew claws done and it appears an unsuccessful attempt at tail docking which has left her with a crooked tail.never mind, she´s still adorable!
I was looking for colour comparisons as we were told Isabel was a Pepper and Salt but she looks more Black and Silver to us. Any tips on how to tell please Diane and Barry?

I agree totally with your ethics in regard to ear and tail docking. After seeing the pictures of your dogs with intact tails, I wish mine hadn't been docked.

Thank you for the valuable information. I have a new black (with white on her chest) mini who is now 11 weeks old. I found your site while searching for grooming suggestions/guidelines. but was pleased to find so much else that was helpful. We are enjoying our playful, affectionate little one. We also have a Weimeraner and a Lab/Chow in our home, but, she, Inca, is our first small dog, and we love her already. Thanks again.

Great tips for grooming and I was particularly interested in the "water only" baths! Wow, maybe that might explain some of Gertrude's (my bitch) skin problems. Also liked the pictures of nail clipping

Beautiful Schnauzies! I have three and my daughter has three. They are the smartest little ladies in the world and so very loveable. I would like to correspond with someone about an eye problem one of my pups has - would love to hear from our neighbors in Canada.

Thank you so much for your decision to not dock the puppies tails. I live in Ottawa, Ontario and because I can not find a breeder here that will not do it, I might just be planning a road trip your way! Thanks again.I will be in touch.

:) We are the proud owners of our first miniature schnauzer puppy-Suki "Ruffles" Trimble. She has been a delightful companion who needs to be groomed. We don't have the money to have her done profesionally- so we are trying to do it ourselves. Your website is a God send. Thank you so much!!! :) :) :)

We are interested in bringing into our family, two mini shnauzers, so I am doing as much research on them as possible. We have had the discussion regarding the ears and tails, and I have always been uncomfortable with that aspect, so I am impressed by your decision to not dock or clip.

We live in Manitoba and are trying to find a breeder closer to home, where we can visit and see the environment and puppies. Do you know of any?

Hi

I found your site searching for Minis with their ears and tails un-clipped. You guys seem wonderful.

My wife and I are starting to think of a little brother or sister for my best friend, Wolfgang, a mini schau'.

I think you are exactly right in leaving the ears and tails as nature intended. It's such an important message to send to other breeders. Thanks a million!

The pic's of your puppies brought a tear to my eye thinking of my old guy when he was young.

Thanks, Richard

Thank you so much for the wonderful information on your site about housebreaking and training methods. I am the proud new owner of a mini schnauzer named Fritz and both he and I are new at this. Your information was very helpful with new suggestions and made me feel much more at ease. Thank you!

I find your instructions on grooming the mini schnauzer very educational and informative. Thanks! Its so exciting to see a schnauzer with beautiful furnishings (and TAILs :) )with a little bit of work and a little quality time spent they are so simple and fun to keep up! I work at a doggie day care and so many of our fur babies are shaved down(eyebrows and all :sad: ) For two years now i have been owned by a beautiful, vibrant personalitied mini girl that i keep in a show cut though not stripped i think she looks the part wink I currently hold an active cosmetology liscense but my head is turning in the direction of my favortite past time and second career of working with fuzzier clients-dogs! Thank you for the information I'm always looking for tips-and I must add that your schnauzer babies are darling!

I've been "stying" my miniature schnauzer for a while and really needed some good tips to make him look as good as he can (he's quite gorgeous) ha ha. Your page, tips and advice are perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Mr. Bean will be quite stunning after I perfect your tips! Thank you.

What a great website! Someone dumped a pup on my road a month ago and I have so fallen in love with her. I was searching puppy pictures and it's clear she has lots of mini schnauzer. We've had a wonderful time this evening looking at all your pictures and reading all the info. I'm resolvednow to work more with Cadi on grooming. And I'm so glad no one had docked her tail or fixed her ears!

Thank you so much for your website. I work full-time and am working on an MBA full-time; thus I don't have time at home right now to have a puppy and give him the attention he deserves. But, my graduation present to myself next year is a mini-Schnauzer. Thank you so much for your website - it makes my heart smile.

hello - I have just bought home my first mini schnauzer and looked up your site for grooming tips - thankyou its of great help

Webmaster Comments:
Hello Jan,

Thanks for the compliments about the grooming, we did work hard on all our info :-) As for your puppy inquiry looking for a male puppy to bred to the female you just got, my advice first and foremost is to let your bitch grow up and see if she is fit to breed or not, she must have proper breed type and a solid genetically healthy pedigree, decent conformation (structure and movement) and a superb temperament, and if you are a novice with no knowledge or experience with this breed as it appears, then you need to get out in the world and prove her worth by doing stuff with her, show, obedience, agility or something. Then IF she is worthy, then once she is mature you can see what flaws she has that need to be improved upon (no dog is perfect) , get all her health clearances done, and search for a male that conformationally and pedigree wise suits your bitch. That will give you the two years she is growing up to learn about and study the breed and breed standard, what makes a dog fit to breed or not, buy and borrow as many books as possible to learn all you can about structure, movement, breed type, breeding and whelping and genetics. Anyone who is unwilling to do all of the above before you even consider breeding, has no right to take any life into their hands and make decisions regardings the future of that life and future lives of living breathing creatures.
