Is a Miniature Schnauzer Right for You?
We believe in our years of experience that Miniature Schnauzer puppies are the very best and the very best puppies grow into the very best dogs. Not all Miniature Schnauzers are created equal, we breed parents that are health tested with Embark as well as the OFA. Another important factor to consider is a breeder who knows who their parents are. Untrainable, highly vocal adults, produce puppies that are the same.
Our Miniature Schnauzers will be more often than not, mild tempered. Confident in who they are and not insecure, which reduces barking and biting in general. We raise our Miniature Schnauzers to adapt well to busy families as well as single adults. Our Miniature Schnauzers are living every where from New York City high rise apartments, service dogs for autistic individuals in school settings, to elderly comfort companions. No matter your living situation or reason for looking for a dog, you can NEVER go wrong with a Miniature Schnauzer.
We specialize in placing the right personality for your situation and finding the right Miniature Schnauzer to be everything you have ever wanted. Whether you are an avid hiker, biker, or couch sitter the right Miniature Schnauzer is available for you. Miniature Schnauzers are great first time dogs and are not prone to running off, biting, or being hard to train. As you can see we can’t say enough good about them as a breed and as individuals.
Facts from the AKC about Miniature Schnauzers as a breed:
Smart, trainable and consistently cheerful, this diminutive breed adapts easily to small city apartments, yet remains just as much at home in the country with lots of space to run around. Their double coat requires hand stripping for the show ring or clipping for the average pet owner, but sheds very little.

- Terrier Group; AKC recognized in 1926.
- Ranging in size from 12 to 14 inches tall at the shoulder (withers).
- Farm dog; companion.
The breed is hardy, healthy, intelligent, and fond of children. It was developed as a small farm dog and used predominately as a ratter. The size of the Miniature Schnauzer, 12-14 inches at the withers, has permitted him to adapt easily to small city quarters. On the other hand, he is still at home in the country and can cover a substantial amount of ground without tiring. As a rule, a Miniature Schnauzer is not a fighter, although he will stand up for himself if necessary. The Miniature Schnauzer is now viewed primarily as a charming and attractive companion. He is seldom addicted to wandering. He is devoted to his home and family, and functions very well as a guard dog in that he can give an alarm just as well as a larger dog. The good health, good temperament and attractive appearance of the Miniature Schnauzer combine to fit him admirably for his role as family pet.
Miniature Schnauzers have been bred in the United States since 1925 and have gained steadily in popularity.
