Looking for SS breeders

Post by Mrs_Red » 31 Dec 2018, 13:57

Evening all, I'm currently in the process of saving for a Standard Schnauzer and was wondering if there is any breeders planning a litter sometime mid 2019?

I have searched Kennel Club for breeders and the ones who have gotten back to me are planning on having a litter. And

I know breeder cant openly comment on here do to forum rules but feel free to private message me!

Thanks

Hi Stacey and welcome to the Forum :-)

As you may have discovered during your research into the breed, there are far fewer Standard Schnauzer puppies born annually than miniature schnauzers. In 2017, only 192 standard schnauzer puppies were registered compared to over 5,600 minis so anyone looking for a standard puppy may have to wait some time and will find the best breeders very selective about new homes for their litter.

If you have your heart set on a standard schnauzer, the best advice is to get to know the breeders through meeting them at breed club events, championship shows, Discover Dogs, Crufts etc. Get to talk face to face with the breeder, see their dogs and assess how fit and healthy they are and whether of good temperament and convince them that you understand the needs of the breed as regards exercise, training, grooming and general health and you will have a much better chance of obtaining a well raised puppy from a quality breeder.

If you are not already a member of one or more of the schnauzer breed clubs, I would recommend joining one as that will also give you the opportunity to meet and find out more about breeders and their dogs:
