Welcome To Our Home And Kennel

We would like to welcome you to our kennel. Our home and kennel sit on 8 acres, 3 miles out side of Utica, OH which is located 35 miles NE of Columbus, Ohio on state highway 62. Our kids are now grown and out of the nest so our dogs are the only kids or I should say fur kids we have at home now. We have 5 grandchildren who play with and puppy approve all our puppies before they go home. We have raised schnauzers since 1988 and try our very best to provide the best quality of puppies to families who we hope will have many, many years of love fun and memories with their puppy. Our puppies are socialized to many new experiences from traveling in a car, family get togethers and played with by everyone who stops buy during the day and can't resist those fur faces. We try hard to send home a well-rounded puppy that is outgoing and ready for the big new world. Many of you buy a puppy and it has to be shipped and you never really have any idea where it comes from. We are hoping that this gives you a feel for the care and attention we pay to our dogs. Visitors are always welcome but we do please ask that you call ahead and make sure that someone is here. Our home phone is 740-670-3971


We take a lot of pride in our kennel and our dogs and try to do everything we can to make sure our dogs are happy, outgoing, very people friendly and most of all healthy.  I have been in your shoes this year and purchased 3 new puppies on line. The puppies came to me in great condition and I have no problems with any of them BUT I still wonder how they were raised, where they were raised and the conditions that they were raised in. I never got to even see photos of the parents let alone where they were raised, or the conditions of where they were raised as puppies, so I know exactly how you feel from the purchaser's side.

I cannot stress enough to anyone who is shopping for a new puppy and visiting different web sites on the web to make sure you can see the mothers and fathers to the litters that are offered.  Make sure that your questions are answered with knowledge and confidence in the breed and openness to anything you may ask.  If you are close enough to go and visit the kennel you are interested in make sure that you can visit the kennel see all the dogs that the breeder has and if not BE WARE.  When a breeder tells you that no one can go in their kennel, it is usually because they do not want you to see what conditions their dogs are being kept in and what it looks like where they raise their puppies.   When a breeder tells you that you are not aloud in the area where the dogs are raised because of diseases that you may bring in that is just another excuse to hide their conditions.  We have all clients who come visit us as they enter the kennel walk on a pad at the gate with disinfectant on it,  and again before they enter the building or outside kennel area as well as clean their hands with cleaner.   We do ask that you do not pet the dogs while you are in the kennel.  With these precautions taken there is not reason that you should not be able to see the conditions.  I do though ask everyone the day they are planning on visiting not to visit another kennel or pet shop before arriving at our home for their visit with us.

If you are not able to visit a  kennel when looking for a new puppy, make sure that you can see current photos of the kennel and also the area where the mothers and puppies are kept. 



Tour our Kennel

We have 15 outside kennel runs that are all 10' W and 32' long. We keep anywhere from 2 to 4 dogs per kennel. Our building in heated and has air conditioning along with tv monitors so we can watch from the house when someone is expecting to save me many trips a day out to check on the mom to be. We have 9 runs off the building that is 4 X 10 with doggie doors for moms to be able to go in and out at will.

Gary and I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our kennel site. We have raised schnauzers for over 18 years now and try very hard to give our fur kids a great place to live and make sure that everyone is happy and healthy. Please feel free to either e-mail or call us if you have any questions about our kennel or dogs that is not answered here on the site. We also welcome any suggestions or comments that may help us to make this site more informative and enjoyable.
