Hi Matt & family and welcome to the Forum :-)

Do vet any breeders recommended by private message very carefully to avoid disreputable breeders / dealers and fully research any litter that you are advised of privately. Do have a look at the relevant topics in the Puppy and the Breeding sections of the Forum for some Guidelines of the kinds of things to look for from a breeder and the questions to be asked of them.

As you may have already 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. Black standards are even more rare and there are very few reputable breeders of this colour in the UK.

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:

Hi Zeta,

Thank you for the advice! We are planning of attending one of the Northern Schnauzer Club events this weekend with the view to getting to talk face to face with some breeders 👍

If you are still looking I can give you details about a litter of pepper and salt Standard Schnauzers. Not sure the pm system works that well on here so let me know if you got my message!
