Our family has been breeding and showing miniature schnauzers for 40 years. We do not have a kennel; all of our dogs, even our Champions, are family members and live in our home with us. Our dogs have exceptionally sweet, loving temperaments, are very well socialized, and make wonderful pets and family companions. Our pups come with a veterinary health certificate plus complete WRITTEN health guarantees, including against congenital defects. Their tails are docked, ears are cropped (if desired), and they are vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, and professionally groomed. Every puppy has its eyes checked by a veterinary ophthalmologist and comes with ACVO eye certification. We are members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club (the AKC-affiliated national breed club) and have signed both the Code of Ethics and the Eye Pledge. When you pick up your puppy, we will give you a 2-hour "seminar" covering all aspects of puppy care and schnauzer ownership. We also provide a puppy kit which includes our 200+ page binder filled with information, including advice on the proper type of food and vitamins for your puppy, housetraining tips, ideas for puppy-proofing your home, details on health issues in the breed, and much more. We provide lifetime support and are always happy to answer your questions or to help with any problems you may have, for the life of your schnauzer. Application and references required, and you must come pick up your puppy in person (central New Jersey location) -- we do not ship our babies. We also are very involved with New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network, which always has adult schnauzers available for adoption to loving homes. You are welcome to make an appointment to come visit with us and our schnauzers. Please contact us for additional information.
