Breeder recommendations for Mini p/s!

The Miniature Schnauzer is a smallest dog in the Schnauzer breed and originated in the mid-to-late 19th Century from Germany. The Miniature Schnauzer is a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and other smaller breeds such as the Poodle. A miniature Schnauzer is a spunky, but aloof dog who does things their own way. They tend to be good guard dogs without the tendency to bite.

Breeder recommendations for Mini p/s!

Post by Lindz »

I know they can’t be named on the forum but we would love help finding a trusted breeder for a salt and pepper mini.
We often look after a friends’ two minis and have a space waiting on the sofa for a boy of our own!

Welcome to the Forum, Lyndsey :)

The best place to start a search for a reputable breeder in the U.K. is to check out the Assured Breeder lists on the Kennel Club website. Members of the ABS are required to meet high welfare standards and carry out relevant health tests for the breed, and they are also inspected by experienced dog professionals (breeders/ trainers / behaviourists). While this is not 100% guarantee of the best breeding, it is a good starting place if you do not know a reputable breeder personally. ... +Schnauzer

Do read through the topics on the Forum re breeding and sourcing a puppy which will also give you an idea of questions to ask and what to look for in a breeder. Any recommendations at all (including the ABS members) should be checked out by you too in order to be sure you are confident in their love and care of their dogs, how they raise their puppies, their knowledge of the breed and that they will offer lifetime of the dog advice and support if needed.

You should also be aware that this is not a good time to be seeking a puppy of any breed as many responsible breeders have delayed having litters due to the impact of the lockdown and restrictions on movement and social contact. It may be later this year or next year before the best breeders are having litters of pups. As long as you are prepared to wait and/or travel though you should be able to find a good breeder who will add you to a waiting list for a future litter.

Good luck in your search.
