Small Breed Puppies:
I personally only breed Giant Schnauzers and that is the only adult dogs I have at my home. On occasion I may have a toy breed litter come to my home. We are a group of family and friends. Each puppy is raised by a friend or family member or someone that used our studs. So pups are raised in a family home. I have a puppy apartment and exercise pen set up in my house if I have a small breed puppy at my home and my friends and family have the same set up that pups are raised in. We also have puppy pads down if pup is out of his crate area. I recommend the puppy apartment and an exercise pen for small breed puppies. This is where puppies are during day unless outside on nice days in an exercise pen. Puppies under 3 pounds are never outside in the grass unless we take them out and stand next to them the whole time… You are welcome to call me to discuss visiting your puppy at the home where it was raised so you can see how it was raised and meet the parents. Please look at training page for more information on potty training.
My Giant schnauzers are raised on my 90+ acre farm. Parents run free unless I have someone coming to see them and then I pen them up for the visit in a large yard area with heated /AC building. I have a whelping kennel building dedicated to raising our Giant puppies. It also is heated and air conditioned. There are three enclosures inside that are 6’X5′ and have epoxy pored flooring which was very expensive stuff… Outside runs are 10 X 30. Puppies learn to use a doggy door out of the building. Our Schnauzer pups get to play with my kids and come into the house for short play sessions through out the day. Some of my Schnauzer parents live in guardian homes. I have 4 females and 1 male that live at my home currently and two other females and 1 male that lives elsewhere. We are not a commercial breeder and do not have tons of dogs at our home. I will forever stay small and give each puppy the love and attention they need to grow into loving family pets. Please visit Our Training page to see more info on what we do for our pups and adults. You are welcome to call me to discuss coming to our modest home and visiting our Adult Giants and their puppies any time.
