Sandyshore Kennels - Miniature Schnauzers


Meet our Schnauzers . . .

I started breeding Miniature Schnauzers a few years ago, looking for a smaller dog for my daughter to play with, and one that offered less trouble for children with allergies.

Miniature Schnauzers are a small dog breed that originated in Germany in the late 1900's, as a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and one or more of the smaller breeds like the Miniature Pinscher and Poodle. It's one of the more popular dog breeds, in the top 10 in Canada, loved for its wonderful temperament. The Official Standard (AKC) of the Miniature Schnauzer describes the Schnauzer temperament as "Alert and spirited, yet obedient to command. Friendly, intelligent and willing to please." They are natural watchdogs, warning owners of people approaching, then friendly when homeowners approach the guest. They are intelligent and train easily, and are very good with children.
