We occasionally have pepper and salt puppies available, if not we will be happy to direct you to other reputable breeders who adhere to health testing of appropriate breeding stock. In accordance with recommendations set by the Standard Schnauzer Club of America we will only breed animals that have passed health clearances for hips, eyes, and dilated cardiomyopathy (certification records can be found on the OFA website).
The puppies are raised in our home as part of our family, which means they are handled regularly and exposed to everyday life: vacuums, foot traffic, our other dogs, clippers and much more. We take great care to match each puppy with the perfect "forever' home, based on their temperament and your lifestyle, activity levels, etc. The pups are picked up from our home (shipping is not available) and all companion dogs are sold on a limited registration.
Incorporating a puppy into your life is a large undertaking and it is a decision that warrants significant thought and honest discussion in your household. Standard Schnauzers do not physically mature until they are at least two years of age and mentally they will still have a puppy mentality for several years.
Therefore, acquiring a puppy, is not a decision to take lightly, everyone in the household should give thought to the following questions.
Are you ready to live with a dog that requires an ongoing investment of your time and funds? Responsible dog ownership will take a lot of work and ongoing funds.
Are you prepared to adjust your daily routine?
Are you able to commit to this animal for his/her lifetime, which may be upwards of 13 years? Longer than most people drive the same car or stay at the same job.
Are you aware of the demands this puppy-and eventually adult dog- is going to place on you and your immediate family?
As much as we love these dogs we are keenly aware of the fact that this is not the breed for everyone- especially a first time dog owner or a family dreaming of a mellow, cuddly, couch potato. A Standard Schnauzer is a lot of dog in a medium sized package- picture a German Shepherd in a Schnauzer body.
Without having the time to mentally and physically stimulate a Standard Schnauzer, at a minimum of twice daily, you will likely encounter a dog with pent up energy chewing your furniture, your plants, your walls, your carpet, your socks. If ingested, items can require surgical removal at an average cost of $3,000. Although this is a worst case scenario it is also a common one in dogs lacking supervision, boundaries, and sufficient exercise.
However, for the new owner willing to invest time and effort to provide a puppy with socialization and training, a Standard Schnauzer will make an outstanding dog who wants nothing more than to be a part of your family.
No litters planned at this time. Please visit standardschnauzer.org to utilize the breeder directory in your puppy search.

The Royalty litter arrived in late 2019. We were blessed with eight happy and healthy pups by BISS CAN CH/CH Cedar Hill's Kenai V. Keygolde, out of our CH Countess of Downton Abbey.
Abby and Kenai both have lovely harsh coats, ideal movement and temperaments that can't be beat.
The Wild West Bunch arrived on January 13, 2018. Abby and Jiggs blessed us with six boys & three girls. Each puppy was loved and adored in our home before moving on to their forever families.
