Welcome & congratulations to you all, first for spelling schnauzer correctly & second for being interested in such an intelligent, loyal, affectionate and handsome dog!
If you're already an owner, you're thinking of getting one or you're just a good old dog lover, then you've arrived at the right place for professionally researched and written factual advice. We give free information about these wonderful pets and a place for you to share your pictures and stories with other schnauzer lovers.
We might also be able to help you if you are looking to rescue or find a home for a Schnauzer. Click here for more information.
Too many websites provide inaccurate "information", often motivated by commercial interests. As a professional journalist and photographer, I've researched & written many of the articles and the rest have been provided by experts in their field. We tell it like it is - good and bad.
I became the proud owner of Max, a Miniature, over 7 years ago. (Or - as pointed out by a fellow fan - he became the proud owner of me!) He's brought so much joy to our lives that we wanted to share our love of this unique breed. Our site isn't just about Miniatures but also their big cousins the Giant and the Standard. It's the only international website for all three types.
We've got articles from Kevin and Sandie Cullen, owners of Philip the Giant, Supreme Champion of Crufts no less, as well as from rescue organizations, breed societies and other canine professionals. Our sincere thanks to all the experts who have contributed.
We want to hear from YOU and your dogs. This site is for Schnauzer and dog lovers like you and me. We've got some great pages where you can send us your photographs
or tell us your favourite story
and we will publish them on the website. If you've got a question, send it to us at FAQs
and we'll do our best to help.
To keep up-to-date with the latest news and contributions, click on the orange RSS button on the left and we'll automatically send it to you.
You'll discover how to spot a good breeder, what to look for in a puppy, how to care for seniors (dogs, not relatives!), obedience training, how these dogs help pet allergy sufferers and a whole lot more.
If you're feeling really brainy, you can have a go at Max's fiendishly clever Dog Quiz, but I warn you - he's thrown in a couple of tough ones....!
If you're involved with a Schnauzer Club or Group anywhere in the world, send us a report of your activities and we'll include it in our News section.
