Our Giant Schnauzers

PSD Tyr (deceased) aka Hugo von der Leidenschaft
In order to preserve the working integrity of our bloodlines, we Do Not sell puppies with breeding rights. (Excluding established working line breeders.) We do however offer options which could lead to those in the future. Far too often good intentions go wrong. If you are interested in breeding a dog from our kennel, we insist you prove the dog is worthy with health clearances, and proven working abilities, be it sport titles, or civil certification. If your intention is to make cute puppies for fun, please look elsewhere. Thank you.

Our O-Litter Arrived!! May 8, 2021!

The O-litter arrived on May 8th, 2021!

O-litter von der Leidenschaft, Born May 8th, 2021

We are pleased to announce the arrival of 5 males and 5 females on May 8th, 2021. This litter is PRESOLD. We look forward to sharing the raising of the litter with everyone via our various social media links.

We have a few irons in the fire for the P-litter in the fall. Stay tuned.

We already have a long list of applicants for both performance and companion dogs. That said, we are always accepting applications for our litters via our Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire. Keep in mind, it is not enough to simply complete the questionnaire and let it be; in the past year we’ve received more than 50 questionnaires! If you really wish to acquire a puppy from our kennel, please engage with us. We are extremely fussy about where our puppies go, and with Covid driving puppy buyers to buy, and “breeders” to produce, we are even fussier! We’ve been at this 20 years, the losses and the hardship have made us tough and determined. When we’re blessed with a litter, we don’t let them go easily. PROVE to us that your home is the best possible place for one of our offspring. 

 


Our commitment is to always breed European Working Lines for excellent health, correct conformation, strong nerve, stable temperament, and rock solid working drives.

***PLEASE NOTE*** All our litters going forward will be left NATURAL. That is, tails, dewclaws, and ears will be left intact. We do not object to puppy buyers having their pups docked and cropped once they are in their care, so long as it’s done by a licensed veterinarian. In Canada now, it is prohibited for veterinarians to perform ANY cosmetic surgery. Breeders can perform their own; we choose not to.


If you are interested in being considered for one of our puppies or adult dogs, please complete our Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire. Please note that due to the time and expense of vetting applicants, we do not actually screen potential buyers until we have puppies to sell. We will however make every effort to acknowledge receipt of your questionnaire. Thank you.
