All our puppies are with pedigree, which is registered with the Federation Cynologique International. We are members the Polish Kennel Club and the Pedigree is valid for all countries of FCI, AKC, CKC. Of course, exported puppies have FCI export pedigree and International certificate of vaccination - Pet Passport. Puppies are preventive dewormed, they have tattoo and vaccinated. At the request of the new puppy owner can identify chip (surcharge).

Our puppies available only for homes where they will be beloved pets and companions, which means to live WITHIN THE OWNER'S FAMILY not in the cage! We place our pups with active, responsible caring individuals who has the time, knowledge. Ability, facilities, patient, resources to provide a good, permanent home where the pup will live a long, happy, secure life. The buyer must have researched the breed, be willing to accept the responsibilities that goes along with schnauzer ownership.

From the moment of conception our "Mamas" are pampered. Our dogs and puppies are NEVER kenneled. Once born, the puppies are hand raised, loved and socialized. They are handled for several hours every day and are raised in our home. During the first week of their lives someone in our family is up and observing the newborns around the clock to guarantee they and their mothers get off to a good start. Puppies are weighed daily to ensure that each pup gets the nutrition s/he needs. Babies stay in the house all the time and have daily contact with people and family pets to assure their early socialization which we find essential for their future development into intelligent and agreeable individuals. After 3-4 weeks (depends on the season) puppies begin to run in our garden, where they can exercise in the open and take advantage of the sun and fresh air. This process enables them to build strong bodies and learn canine social skills - at that time we introduce them to our adult dogs, let them explore terrain on our property - they can also familiarize themselves from the safety of enclosed runs with city traffic and sounds of the busy street. Puppies are fed meat, vegetables, fruits and and other natural products + Super Premium dry food BRIT CARE (no soy, wheat, corn, GMO).

Our puppies are placed into ONLY the best homes possible thus we will need for some informations regarding your lifestyle. When contacting us please tell us a bit about yourselves, where you live, prior dog experience, family members, if there are children in the household please provide us with ages, your home and the environment you will provide for your new companion. We want to hear why you are interested in Standard Schnauzers. If you have an interest in Showing a dog to it's Championship let us know.

Since breeding is only a hobby and we have a limited number of litters per year (1-2) of ours we might not have a pup ready for you tomorrow, so reserving one of our dogs might require time and patience. We welcome those who love the schnauzer to contact us. If we don't have what you are looking for we will gladly refer you to other reputable breeders. All visitors that would like to meet us and our dogs are always welcome!

In the past, we had a bad experience with two new owners of our puppies. Now, we are very touchy. Each breeder has to know that before we sell him a puppy, will be checked! With the help of our friends all over the world, we can find out the whole truth about almost every breeder. If your dogs are kenneled or confined during the day, please don't write to us! You don't get a puppy.
