We breed a Mini Poodle to Mini Schnauzer. Our pups are F1 Schnoodles.
Our Schnoodle puppies are non-shedding. You may see some shedding as the puppy coat turns into their adult coat.
Schnoodles should be brushed 2-3 times a week to work out mats that may delelop. There is no standard way to groom a Schnoodle, so depending on the look you're going for (puppy cut, teddy bear, or shaggy) you can expect to have them groomed every 2-4 months.
Our Schnoodles do wonderful with other pets, including cats. Weather permitting, we introduce them to the chickens. You do need to give the new puppy at least two weeks to adapt with a dog that is already in your home.
They can stay at home while you are at work. They will learn the routine and become fine with your schedule.
Schnoodles love long walks, or even runs. We do not take ours for walks much, but they live on our 9 acres so they get energy out that way. Schnoodles are not very high-strung, and make great therapy dogs! Many of our puppies have gone to homes for this reason and have done wonderfully.
Schnoodles are very intelligent and are not hard to train. I recommend to take them to obdedience classes, but it’s not needed if you have the time to work on that yourself.
Yes! If you are local, we highly recommend Chesney Stock at Pure Value K9 Training. She provides in home training as well as boarded training. You can find her on Facebook HERE.
It depends on the size of the parents. Nike is 14lbs and Harley is 18lbs. Most of our puppies stay within this range, however we have had one hit a surprising 21 lbs.
In order to hold the next pick on any litter, a $250 non-refundable deposit is required. If you change your mind about the litter you chose, (due to color, size, wanting to wait, etc) you may transfer your reservation to another litter, or a wait for a future litter. We do not guarantee future litters.
We provide a breeding contract that outlines breeder and buyer responsibilities. You can find this document on our Payment page.
We allow our puppies to go to their forever homes around 8 - 10 weeks of age. If you are unable to come all the way to Fowlerville to pick up your puppy, we are able to meet up to 2 hours out for an additional fee. If you plan to fly in, we can also meet you at Detroit Metro International, Lansing, or Flint Bishop airports.
I love receiving updates and pictures of your schnoodles in their new homes. E-mail, phone calls or texting are all great ways to get a hold of me.
Yes, I can pick out a pup for my customers according to what they are wanting and their life-style. It is extremely important to me that the pups to match what the new owners are wanting so that they can stay in their forever homes for life.
We will take our puppies back, this is stated in contract. Please contact us first before re-homing the puppy/dog.
Yes. Many of our customers have sent us testimonials.
We would love to know as much as we can about your family and life-style. This will help both of us, and help your new puppy to adjust to their new home.
You do not. I believe that when purchasing an animal, all rights should go with the owner.
Nike is time tested. Her health & temperament is perfect for a schnauzer. Harley has had multiple genetic tests and is in perfect health without negative genetic markers.
They receive their first set of shots at 6 - 7 weeks and second at 9 - 10 weeks if they are still with us for the second round.
I don't offer a year-long health guarantee as live animals can be unpredictable. Instead, I provide a 7-day window for new puppy parents to have their pups checked by a vet, ensuring their health is promptly assessed and any concerns are addressed early on for a happy and healthy start.
Poodles can have eye problems, but I have not seen that in our Poodles or Schnoodles.
Diamond Naturals Small & Medium Breed Puppy. I will send along some food with the puppy, so if you want to change you can do little-by-little.
The pups come with health records that you take to your vet. This includes their shot & worming records.
Lifespan for this breed is typically 12 - 16 years.
I have been breeding dogs for over many years. I started breeding Schnoodles about 3 years ago, but I was breeding Labradoodles prior to that.
I started breeding Schnoodles because our Miniature Schnauzer has the best temperament of any schnauzer I know. The world needed more Nikes! We looked far and wide for the perfect schnauzer or poodle stud and landed on Harley (a miniature poodle) that was a perfect match. I like the look of Schnoodles and that their health is better by breeding two separate breeds.
Nike will be on site as we visit Harley at his home for breedings. While she is super friendly, she is protective of her home and will bark when visitors arrive. Once she greets you and welcomes you in, she'll enjoy all the petting you can give her.
The puppies live in our home and are played with daily. If the weather permits, we play outside on our 5 acres and run in the field with the chickens and cats.
Our puppies are raised in our home and are handled daily. They are very used to people, kids, and all sizes of dogs.
With years of breeding experience, it's become second nature to assess a puppy's temperament. Living alongside them gives an innate understanding of their personalities. Having exceptional parents is key — my focus is on ensuring they're wonderful, resulting in perfectly healthy, happy, and well-rounded pups. Plus, the bonus is that they're non-shedding, intelligent, kid-friendly, and protective without being aggressive.
