B AND B
Our focus is on : Nutrition and the long life of your DOG and puppy.
I Have researched dog nutrition for over 15 years and I am now Devoting Myself To Helping People Learn To Feed Their 4 Legged Children With Homemade Food, Treats AND MORE. I have also done a great deal of research and I keep myself informed on the "natural" dog foods out there and all the recalls.

Bob and Bonnie have been raising Miniature and Standard Schnauzers for a total of 14 years. We are no longer breeding.
Our dogs have been raised with love and a great deal of socialization. Our house is a very busy one and I guess we must like it because we don't try to change it! Our grandchildren love to come over and play with our dogs. Our goal was to breed the best family pet and companion Schnauzers that you can find. Some of our dogs are from champion AKC lines with pedigrees going back 4+ generations.
When looking for any dog make sure you have looked at each parents pedigree and be sure you are not getting a puppy that has been "linebred" or "inbred", same thing. If a breeder does not want to show you it then move on there are other puppies out there and breeders who are honest and care about their breed.
Make sure the parents have good sound temperaments and most important make sure the owners of the male and female have vet checked puppies and papers and show you that. So you know you are starting out with a healthy puppy. Our dogs are screened by our vet for all potential genetic health problems such as skin, hip or eye problems.
Never, Never buy a puppy from a pet store. Most puppies are purchased though puppy mills and have severe health problems. This may not show up immediately.
Check to see if the parents of your puppy and the puppies are raised indoors. All of our Schnauzers are raised indoors and are an important part of our families day to day life. Crate training is important. You don't want your dog in a crate all the time but your puppy and later the mature dog should not be afraid of the crate. It helps to ensure safety of your pets when they are not supervised. All of our litters are born in our home with supervision during the entire whelping. Puppies are not ready to go to their new homes until at least 8 weeks of age and should have been administered age appropriate inoculations and worm medications. If it is a Schnauzer each puppy should have dew claws removed and tails docked by a vet.
We are very passionate about all the puppies we have brought into this world. We are always here to provide people with support and assistance if they feel they need us. We are committed to being responsible and loving breeders. Though we are not breeding anymore we continue to give advice and help people with their new puppies; Schnauzers or any other breed.
If you decide on a Standard Schnauzer, remember they are a big dog in a small package. They are extremely athletic, love to play, and can be very strong, so obedience training is important when they are young. If raised with children, they are great with them. If well cared for, they are a very long lived breed. I know several that have lived to be 16 - 18 years old. They are extremely easy to train, if their owner is firm and consistent and they have the ability to get very high scores in trial work, if you choose to become involved, as they have the intelligence and energy to work all day. They do not shed and have no special genetic weakness.
If you decide to get a Miniature Schnauzer keep in mind they are a small, squarely proportioned dogs with a long head, bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows. They are an energetic, active dog; making for a delightful companion as an apartment dweller or someone with a small house and yard. They are charming and attractive; the perky Miniature Schnauzer is seldom addicted to wandering, being devoted to its home and family. They make an excellent companion to children.
Kids and Dogs are a natural mix. Schnauzers are full of energy and enjoy their human counterparts, kids. Once a child learns to treat a puppy kindly and respect a puppy's needs…the pup and the child are fast friends.
Take time to educate a child from the first day a puppy is brought home. Give the child some responsibilities for caring for the puppy to help with the bonding experience. It is essential that the child understands how easily a puppy can be hurt, so ask the child to help think of ways to keep the puppy safe. Children love to be involved in the care of the puppy.
