Welcome to Dinsdale Standard Schnauzers


 My girls all decided to come into season in October, a month or two early.  Cyrus has bred two of our females and with luck we should have pups arriving at the end of December 2014.  This means we will have Black pups ready to head to their new homes in February 2015.  For anyone that wishes to be on our waiting list please contact us at dinsdale@eagle.ca

I will be posting an update to our Upcoming Litter page in a couple of weeks once we know they are pregnant

welcome to dinsdale standard schnauzers

For more then 20 years we have owned, bred and shown our dogs to Conformation, Obedience and Agility Titles.  Our Standard Schnauzer achievements include Top Standard Schnauzer in Canada, Best In Show, top five in both Obedience and Agility.  Dinsdale dogs have completed Canine Good Neighbour certification, St John Therapy dog certification.  We are incredibly proud of the number of our owners that have taken their Dinsdale Schnauzers and titled them in the Show Ring and the dog sport venues of Agility, Rally O, Obedience and Tracking titles in Canada and the USA

Natural Ears:  Traditionally the Schnauzer ear has been surgically cropped and trained to stand in an  alert manner. This practice of cropping ears has however fallen into disfavour with the majority of countries around the world.  I am not going to argue the rights vs. wrongs of the practice of cropping.
