Our purpose

3 black silver puppies.jpg

"Breed to Improve." In saying this, our goal is to improve the breed with every breeding. How do we do this; we review pedigrees and the health of certain bloodlines that we are interested in. We review our dog's qualities and see if there is an area we can improve on.

 

To avoid "kennel blindness" -- in other words, we take a step back and honestly evaluate the good and bad points of each dog before making the decision who to breed to and look for second opinions from other breeders that are always looking to improve the breed. Then we look for a mate that will eliminate or balance those flaws.

 

The goal of breeding, after all, is to produce a better dog and a quality pet. Attending a dog show to determine how your dog measures up against the best specimens of its breed. That's a big part of why we show our dogs, we get opinions from true dog fanciers and specific breed Judges.

American Miniature Schnauzer Club - Breeding Code of Ethics

Members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club, as guardians of the breed, strive to breed conscientiously, taking responsibility for the lives they produce, including responsible placement of all puppies produced by any breeding, to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual dogs and of the breed.

Accordingly, members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club will:

  1. Educate themselves to recognize the correct conformation of the Miniature Schnauzer, familiarizing themselves with the AKC breed standard and representative dogs, prior to breeding a stud dog or a brood bitch.

  2. At all times breed for the improvement of the breed as exemplified by the AKC standard.

  3. Breed only animals that are in good health and who are physically and temperamentally sound.

  4. Strive to produce puppies of such quality that they will serve to improve and complement the breed and avoid breeding individual Miniature Schnauzers known to have, or are strongly suspected of having, a serious inherited disease or defect that will likely be passed on to offspring and that, if inherited, would significantly affect the quality of life of any offspring that would be produced.

  5. Represent each puppy sold as accurately as possible.

  6. Share information gained through breeding with other Miniature Schnauzer owners.

  7. Act as a mentor to persons with whom they place puppies and encourage an open dialog for the life of the dog.

 

Members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club will:

  1. Sell each puppy or adult with a written health guarantee, a three-generation pedigree, a record of immunizations, care and feeding instructions, and registration papers where applicable.

  2. Inform the buyer of the characteristics of Miniature Schnauzers, and make available to the novice the benefit of his advice and experience.

  3. Sell any companion puppy or companion adult having a known hereditary health defect only with a Limited Registration and Spay/Neuter Contract.

  4. The breeder will not sell or dispose of any dog through wholesalers, commercial dealers or a broker.

  5. The breeder shall remain responsible for the welfare of every dog he breeds, sells or places. This means making himself available to aid the new owner if and when the need presents itself. If in the future the owner is not able to keep the dog, the owner should be instructed to contact the seller and the seller will have the responsibility either to take the dog back or find it a new home.
