Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 3 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.

We sell our puppies through our Priority Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to buy a puppy, visit the Priority Waiting list page to sign up for an upcoming litter.


Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)

They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!.............. Growing.Puppies@yahoo.com

Update: The Waiting List is OPEN for a limited time. Registration is $25. Please read more on Waiting list page.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 
How does the Priority Waiting List work?   Registration for one list is $25 registration...or sign up for both lists for $30.00. This is non refundable.  Those who register are given the first chance to put deposits down on a litter.


How long will it take for me to get a puppy?
This is the most common question that people ask.  I could throw out a guess, but it would only be a guess.  I have no way of knowing.  A better answer is for you to consider the factors involved in the question.

Update for 2017 litters:  The Miniature list is long because Misty was not producing more than 1-2 puppies per litter.  We have retired Misty and added Zoey and Crystal to our breeding program for future litters.  They are beautiful AKC Mini Schnauzers both from large litters (7-9 puppies).   So we can look forward to many more Mini Schnoodles in 2017

1. Timing of Litters is up to Nature.   Dogs are able to be bred every 6-8 months depending on when they happen to come into heat.   I expect to be able to breed my dogs at least once a year.  Of course, I always take the health of my dog in consideration FIRST in this decision to breed or not breed.  Sometimes there is a second litter.  I base this decision on the size of the last litter and the how easy the last pregnancy was on the female.

2. Size of Litters is up to Nature.  Most litters are between 2-7 puppies.   Miniatures average 5-7 pups.  Toys Schnauzers average 4-6 puppies.  

3. Sometimes people choose not to buy a puppy, or wait for another litter.   There are many reasons people decline a puppy.  They might have bought a puppy some place else.  The time is not right because of moving, getting married, health problems, etc.   It is very important that people NOT buy a puppy unless the timing is good for them.  I will be happy to place you on the list for the next litter. 

4 Many people are on both waiting lists.  Take note of how many people are on the Miniature list as well as the Toy list ...These people will be removed from the Miniature list if they get a Toy first, or vice versa.   I have just added two females to my Miniature Schnoodle breeding program, so I will now have a larger number of puppies in 2017

So when you decide how long you should plan to wait consider all of the above factors.  Watch the changes that occur on the Waiting List after a litter is born.  During that time I am contacting people and will find out whether people still want a puppy.

What do I tell my children?   They want to know when we will get a puppy?
Different people handle this in different ways.   I will tell you what has worked for me over the years, raising a big family.   When I decide to add a puppy to our family, I don't tell my children we are getting a puppy until the puppy is born, and I know when we will bring the puppy home.  But if I am not that far along in the process, and they are begging me for a puppy, then I tell them that I really want a puppy too, but we have to wait for the right puppy to be born.   We could choose any dog to own.  But we are waiting for the puppy that is right for our family and that takes more time.

Some parents promise a child a puppy when he or she reaches a certain age. It is a good idea to research and talk to breeders at least a few years before you want to buy the puppy.  In the end if your child has to wait a little while for a puppy, it is not always such a bad thing.  It is good for children to learn to wait.  We have a culture that demands instant results for so many things.  But nature does not act that way.   Children who grow up understanding that their is a time and a season for all things will learn patience as they mature.   We cannot control everything in life.   Waiting for the right time is a very important life lesson for kids.
 
.
How will I know when a Puppy is available? 
I phone and or email each person that is first on the list for a puppy until I have reached enough people to cover the litter.   If you do not respond to an email or a phone call after 24 hours I may have to move to the next person on the list.  I do try to contact people well before the litter is born to give people lots of time to get the message.

Can I get my money back after I register?  Refunds are available for 24 hours after you register for the Priority Waiting list.  I do not issue refunds after that time, as I have already updated website and processed payments.  This payment goes to the effort of keeping up my list and insures that people on the list are serious.   This payment is for having first chance towards a puppy and is not payment toward a puppy.

How much will these puppies weigh?   The best guess for size of future puppies is to look at the size of the mother and the father of the litter.  There are numerous puppy weight calculators on the internet, but they are not reliable.    The size will likely be similar to the mother or father...   However, even then, occasionally a puppy does not get as big as the mother and father , or ends up being even bigger than both.  When a puppy is born, bone structure and skull size can indicate who will be larger or smaller.   Also males are generally larger than females.  If you prefer a smaller dog, then generally females are smaller than males.  Hope that helps!

What does the '*' next to a name indicate?  When people have been on the list for a very long time, I like to make a contact with them at least once a year to be sure they are still waiting for a puppy.   When I make a contact I put a star next to their name.  This way I can see who I still need to contact.  If I cannot reach someone after repeated attempts, then I will move them to a separate list.   Obviously I cannot sell a puppy to someone who is unreachable.  So I can only hope that they will contact me again to update their contact information.

  3. Hi,

    I recently found your website when I was online searching for schnoodle breeders. I was wondering whether you knew when you'd be expecting another toy/small schnoodle litter?

    Kind regards,
    Kylie

    1. Hi Kylie, I will have Toy Schnoodle puppies in the Spring, but it looks from the Waiting list, like this litter may already be spoken for. Let me know if you have questions, by emailing Growing.Puppies@yahoo.com

  4. I'm looking for a toy or mini schnoodle. I work at an animal hospital and kennel and have fallen in love with this breed. How big do yours get and do you have any available in the next few months? I tried emailing but the delivery failed.
