Welcome we are Miniature Schnauzer dog breeders located in Alberta Canada. You will find home raised puppies for sale out of some of the best lineage available on our site. Health, and temperament are always first and foremost to us, as well as is regular deworming, vaccinations, and being raised on the best of puppy foods. Our pups are raised in our home not in a kennel.While the registries may only consider one size range under the miniature schnauzer, for many years there have also been known under this classification for many breeders what is known as the tea cup, and the toy schnauzer, which you will also find in our breeding program. The Miniature Schnauzer usually ranges from 12 to 18 pounds, the Toy Miniature Schnauzer usually ranges from 7 to 12 pounds, and the Tea Cup usually ranges from 2.5 to 7 pounds. These smaller versions are everything their larger counter parts are just in a smaller package, and in the US some breeders have been carefully breeding for the smaller version for as long as 30 years with much success. I have been around dogs my whole life, and have bred other breeds in my past, but after owning the miniature schnauzer was so impressed with the breed, that I found myself wanting to breed this wonderful breed of dog. Seems one of these wonderful dogs is just never enough!

The miniature schnauzer makes the perfect family pet! They require little room and can be just as much at home with no yard, as they are at home on the farm. They are good with children and other pets. Energetic, these dogs love to play with their masters, yet love to settle down and cuddle. Their very intelligent and easy to house train, love to learn tricks, and are very loyal. They do not shed, which make them great for those who suffer from allergies, but do require regular grooming which is pretty minimal considering most of their coat is clipped or stripped. They should be clipped to keep that schnauzer appearance, or stripped if shown. See my link on grooming for a more indepth detail on grooming or clipping. The miniature schnauzer is generally a very clean dog overall.
