Finding a responsible breeder: 


A trustworthy, legitimate breeder should always provide you with a written contract and health guarantee before you purchase the dog. Lastly, they should provide

you with your new puppy’s official papers and health records.



When looking for a reputable dog breeder, start by checking with trusted sources like your veterinarian or national breed clubs. For example, if you are looking for a

French Bulldog, the official French Bulldog Club of America keeps a directory of breeder members who have signed a code of ethics and have met a number of

requirements, such as a health guarantee and a return policy. Additionally, the AKC’s web site provides a search engine for AKC breeders of merit. 



If possible, try and visit the breeder’s home before agreeing to buy one of their puppies. The best kinds of breeders offer ample, comfortable living spaces for their

dogs.It’s also important to note that their puppies are not being confined in cages or small spaces constantly, and that they get proper exercise and care. Dirty and

overcrowded breeding spaces should be a red flag. 



It may not seem necessary, but it’s a good sign when breeders question potential dog parents about their intentions for welcoming a puppy into the family. It’s almost

like a human adoption process. They want to be very sure that you are ready for this big life change, and are qualified to raise and care for the dog. If you are purchasing

a larger, active dog from an expert breeder, they will ask questions about how big your living space is and if you have a yard or are near a park. Questions that prove they

care about their puppies show that they are responsible and trustworthy.



Responsible breeders do not always have litters of puppies available for purchase. Typically, breeders only have one or two litters per year. If you are speaking with a breeder

that has multiple puppies available, this might indicate that you are dealing with a puppy mill.

 My Good Name means everything to me!

I want to address this issue:  The Internet is a wonderful place for information, shopping and bringing people together and the whole world closer.  But it is also a heaven for scams,

hackers, con artist and thieves. Every day we get scam E-mail sent to us and luckily we have not fallen for it.  But now a new way of scamming to extort money has come about from

web sites like; Ripoff Report, Complaints Board and Scam Found just to name a few.  These web sites post fabricated defamatory complaints under phony names for the purpose of

extorting money.  They pick on popular web sites like mine and ask for money to push down or remove the lies that are written. The first time this happened it was in 2010.  Lies

were posted about my kennel by people using fake names calling me and other breeders a puppy mill and saying that we sell sick puppies, etc……..all written in the

same broken English and misspelled words.  I didn’t know this was written on the Internet until I was sent E-mail from a phony person pretending to be interested in buying a puppy,

but after reading the bad reports posted on the Internet about my kennel, not willing to buy a puppy from me.. (When I checked this person's e-mail address, no information was found.) 

Then I was contacted by a fake Company asking if I needed their help to bury the lies and slander written for an initial $199.00 & $99.00 a month thereafter.  And the price

goes higher.  It didn't matter when I begged the webmaster to take the slander and lies written on his web site off, he refused.  When I lost my temper and called him names, more

lies and slander were posted about me on different web sites all owned by the same person.  To save my reputation, I sent all the information about this to 20/20, the FBI and paid an

investigator but to no avail.  To my defense, you can read about these various web site scam artists on the Internet.  But sadly, it doesn't help when my good name and kennel's

reputation are being destroyed. I want everyone to know, we do not support Puppy Mills or unhealthy breeding!  We are a very small business and carefully breed healthy Schnauzers. 

We have 10 dogs total and treat them as pets.  Our dogs live with us and are not kept in a kennel.  The little green house is where they go potty and we have two acres for them to play. 

Every dog and puppy that leaves here goes with a veterinary health record.  We don't ship puppies.  No sick puppy has ever been sold by us and everyone comes here to pick the puppy up.

We welcome visitors and are very proud of the hard work that has gone into our breeding program to assure you healthy Miniature Schnauzers.  The latest web site to trash me on the Internet,

not only posted false accusations but offered me a costly REMOVE YOUR NAME NOW  button.  These thieves are nothing less than robbers without guns, who feel no remorse for slandering my

good name and ruining a business that I have worked hard to establish.  Popular web sites are easy prey for thieves who lack ethics and think nothing of making up false stories to extort money. 

If you want to see who is behind most of these evil web sites and who is extorting money from innocent people, download this PDF police record file: 

Complaints Board, the latest to defame me, is another web site that fabricates complaints to extort money.  It is owned by a man in Russia, and beyond the reach of US courts.  It is said that they hate

Americans because they take better care of their pets than people.  (I love animals but value humans too).  If you read about these criminals, it will give you an idea what I'm up against.  Now to all the people who have bought dogs from us: I asked that you not write into these web sites on my behalf. 

It will only cause them to write more lies and add fuel to the fire.  If they find out you have a business, they may try defaming you and I would not like to see this happen.

Rules on how to find a good dog breeder

Hi Cathy,
I wanted to send a quick email to let you know how disappointed and shocked I am upon reading the nasty complaints regarding your breeding program.  My Cooper

(Cooper x Ashland, 2008) will be 3 years old on March 14th, and is a product of your quality breeding program.  I cannot put into words how much joy Cooper brings

to my family and I.  His intelligence, obedience, and never ending devotion has made him a great companion and addition to our family.  That was exactly what I was looking

for 3 years ago when I contacted you about your breeding program and I have never doubted my decision to bring Cooper home.  I am always more than willing to speak

with others who may have questions (or concerns) about your breeding program.  Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference for potential customers.  I plan to send you

pictures of Cooper in a month or two and update you on how he is doing.  Please continue working to improve the Miniature Schnauzer breed.  Those of us who have purchased

a puppy from you in the past can appreciate your hard work and integrity. 

Sincerely, Chad

Shipping and getting your puppy home safely:

Ideally, we would like for you to drive here and see the nice conditions and meet the parents of your puppy.  But if this is a hardship and shipping is

the only option, we are willing to ship an older puppy who has had all its shots.  Taking a puppy home by plane as a carry on is another option.  Here

are some airports you can call: Columbus (CMH) is the largest airport located near us here in Ohio.  Call:  1-614 239-4000

Rickenbacker Airport 7161 Second St. Columbus, Ohio 43217  Call: 614 491-1401

We also have a small craft airport called Bolton Field close to our home.  Bolton Field location: 2000 Norton Rd Columbus, OH 43228  614 851-9900

More information about these airports can be found at this link:

Ground service is another option.  They pick the puppy up here and transport the puppy to your door.  Just Google Pet Ground Service to find companies

who provide this service in your area.

Things you might want to consider before buying a new puppy.

Hi Cathy,

First off: Thank you so much for delivering Mona in such great shape. I love the care package, and misc things provided. I'll be talking with you on a regular basis, and asking some questions here

and there.  Mona made it back with no problems whatsoever... didn't get sick, and no accidents along the way. Put a puppy pad down in the floor board, she used that twice like a good girl. Once

getting home, she ate very well, was constantly looking around for more. She of course acted as though she hasn't eaten in weeks. :O)  Very cute to watch.  Didn't get much sleep last night as I

expected. But everything is going very well... she is adapting to her new home very well.  Thanks again.  Talk with you soon.  FLINT


Just wanted to let you know that “Baxter” did great on the long ride home. We all held him and loved him all the way home. We came home to the hurricane on Saturday and had no electricity from 7 am Saturday

until 7 pm last night. Thankfully we have a generator so we were able to have lights and water for part of the time. Baxter was unaffected by the inconvenience and cried when he needed to go out -about every 2 hrs

Friday night and 3 times Saturday night. He did much better last night – only needed to go out at 2am this morning. He went right back to sleep when we came in.  We took Baxter to the vet Saturday morning. Our vet

agreed with your recommendation regarding the shots (he was actually very impressed that a breeder cared so much for the health of the puppy after selling him). Our vet checked him over, and as we knew, found that he

is very healthy. He wants him to put on a little more weight this week and try next weekend for his shots.  Jack and Baxter met at the kennel on Saturday morning. The greeting went well. Jack is beginning to warm up to Baxter

and they are establishing their hierarchy quite peacefully. Baxter follows Jack a lot of the time and tries to play but Jack isn’t quite sure how to play with him. Baxter has learned his name, he has learned to sit for his food and treats

(which is a piece of food when he goes potty in the right place) and if we are downstairs he will sometimes go to the back door when he has to potty. He has had very few accidents in the house and actually used the puppy pad a few

times when the rain and wind were too bad to take him out.  had our puppy party to welcome Baxter home on Sunday and both Baxter and Jack were on their best behavior. We had all guests wash their hands before greeting Baxter

(even the guests without pets). He entertained everyone with his playfulness and wooed all the women with his puppy breath and kisses. He is quite the little charmer, and seems to prefer women to men, but he willingly went to anyone

who wanted to hold or play with him. We are getting him on a schedule for meals, playtime, and naptime. He eats very well and so far hasn’t tried for Jack’s food and Jack hasn’t wanted to check out Baxter’s dish, but we stay close by just

 in case we’re needed. I had forgotten how cute puppies are when they play. Baxter played with his shadow this morning before he turned his attention to his toys. Of course anything that hangs down (pants legs, robes, shoe strings…) is

fair game to him. We had to put a small bell on his collar so we could keep track of him when we’re walking since he is always either on our heels or beside us. I love that when he gets tired he wants to crawl up in a lap to go to sleep. He has

brought so much joy into our lives already. I have some pictures on my phone to send to you when I can figure out how. I’ll also send you puppy updates occasionally if that’s okay with you. Thank you for all your hard work in bringing up healthy

puppies. Brenda and Harvey

Before Leaving our Home: All puppies have tails docked; dewclaws removed, are wormed and come with an individual veterinary health record. Each puppy will be AKC

If you’ve never had a Schnauzer… now is the time. Schnauzers make great family pets. They are non-allergenic, playful and smart.

Some say they can easily teach a Schnauzer up to twenty-five words. We realize how important good breeding is.

Our adult dogs are kept up to date on shots, wormed year round with CERF testing done on our stud. We exercise and

play with our dogs every day. Only healthy adults produce healthy puppies. And this is also why we breed champion lines.

“Champions best represent the breed not only for great looks but also for health and sweet temperaments”.      

When you pick your puppy up, we only accept "Cash" for the Balance.

It's hard to believe little Jilly Bean is grown up already.  She still looks like and puppy and probably always will.

Isn't Jilly adorable in her new maternity top?  She is such a sweetheart.

A letter to those getting a puppy from me.

Dear New Puppy Owners,

I have been breeding since 1999 and I’ve worked really hard to be the best breeder that I can possibly be.  I started my breeding program with healthy dogs

that I acquired from vets and other breeders who work hard to weed out genetic problems.  And to assure even healthier puppies, we don’t line breed

or in-breed our dogs.  But even with all the good careful breeding your puppy has, it is still a pedigree dog prone to certain health issues.   Fortunately, our

breeding dogs have never had genetic health problems, skin problems or even Schnauzer bumps.  And I attribute this to good breeding, a healthy diet, exercise

and good veterinary care.  I’m not in this business to sell heartaches and I certainly don’t want your puppy coming down with a genetic defect especially when it

could be prevented.  Your puppy will depend on you to feed him healthy food, interact with him, protect his health with good veterinary care and teach him good behavior. 


Miniature Schnauzers are very smart; one of the smartest breeds there are.  People tell me Schnauzers are able to learn many different tricks and recognize up to 25 different

words.  Minis come in different colors and with unique personalities.  Some Miniature Schnauzers are quiet and laid back, some are more spirited while some are alpha dogs.

I love them all, especially the alphas.   Alphas are highly intelligent and natural born leaders.  When trained and handled right, alpha dogs are the most devoted. 


High spirited, laid back or alpha, to feel safe and secure, your puppy must see you as its leader.  No matter how smart and cute a dog is;

one that growls and bites, even as a puppy, is a bad dog and cannot be enjoyed and trusted.  To help offset bad behavior, I highly recommend puppy school followed

by obedience school for all you new puppy owners.  It’s not the puppy who really needs the schooling; it is you who needs to learn how best to train your puppy. 

Invest in Cesar Milan’s Book.  Watch The Dog Whisper on National Geographic and other dog related shows.  The more you understand your dog, the easier training will become.


Signs of neglect and abuse come in different forms.  And I’m sure you would never intentionally neglect or abuse your puppy.  But sometimes what you may consider love,

could ruin a perfectly normal dog, especially a bright puppy.  Here are some things to avoid: 

(1) Never feed table scraps and other food (junk treats) harmful to your puppy even when it is full grown.  I don’t care if your puppy loves table food, it will only lead to problems

“Any dog will choose table food over dog food”.  I hate when I see an obese or overweight dog.  It shows neglect not love.  Skip the junk treats!  “A dog’s own dog food is a treat

if fed out of its master’s hand”.  If you keep your dog on a healthy diet, it will not only lead a happier life but live a longer life. 

(2) Never let your dog spend the entire day in an empty house. This is cruelty!  It is extremely important to interact, play or walk your dog every day.   

(3) Never, never allow your puppy to nip, bite and get away with bad behavior.  Letting a cute little puppy get away with snapping, growling, (even one time) chewing on furniture, shoes,

nipping (even one time) is wrong.  This will eventually escalate to harmful bites followed by law suits and possibly having to euthanize your dog for safety reasons. 


I know you love your puppy and I want you to have the best pet ever for years to come.  If for some reason you are unable to care for your puppy, I will help you place it

in another home.  But I can’t help you place a puppy with bad behavior… one that bites and can’t be trusted.  I refuse to reward people who neglect our puppies.

  Spay/ Neutering        Ear Cropping         Shots

This is very important.  I cannot and don’t take responsibility for complications that may arise from spay/ neutering or ear cropping.  I am not responsible for any medical care done

by any veterinarian. It is wise to talk everything over with your vet before having your pet put to sleep or under general anesthetic for any procedure.  Ask your vet's opinion about future

health issues or a possible personality change that may arise from Spay/Neutering or ear cropping. 

Shots:  I will not take responsibility for adverse side affects from your pet's booster shots.  Talk all concerns over with your vet.  Ask your vet's opinion about annual booster

shots verses autoimmune related problems.  Some vets don’t feel it is necessary to give annual shots year after year for stay at home pets.  And some pets may need certain inoculations

suited to the life style and area you live in.   

Worms/Parasites:  Even though your puppy was wormed and raised in clean conditions, it may break out with parasites or worms soon after going to its new home. 

This is caused from stress for which I have no control.
