Thank you to all the wonderful owners that keep us updated on their Standard Schnauzers. I love hearing from everyone and the photos are appreciated, Lori
Dinsdale Standard Schnauzers
Lori, he (Hugo) really is the most incredible little guy. We could not be happier.
He is so brave and so calm, so loving and so fun-loving it is amazing. We
had a struggle (as you know) with the housebreaking and I am convinced it
was partly an underdeveloped bladder combined with an inability to
understand why it matters so much to us where he peed.
We have been through puppy class and basic obedience and of all of my
previous and current dogs he has been by far the easiest. He loves to work and just gets it. I have been really busy at work this summer and haven't had as much time for "homework" as I would have liked, but Hugo made us look like rock stars every week. Everyone was so amazed by him they kept congratulating me on all my hard work. It was a little embarrassing as I
knew it was not due to me at all.
I included a photo of him on the teeter-tooter at puppy class. They do 20 minutes on an agility style course at the beginning of puppy class to get
them used to new challenges and work out some energy, Hugo loved it (exceptthe teeter-tooter) in fact Kevin built him a ramp in their yard and he oftenruns up and down it by himself, he is the most amusing when he just stops and sits on top of it. I try to get a photo of that, but always miss it
Things are going really well with Jaxson and he had his first road trip to Jasper National Park. Loved every minute of it and we are hoping to do it again soon. He got to walk in Maligne Lake, run in dandelion field, sleep in a tent, play with other dogs, walk in the trees but most of all run free without the leash which he was so great doing. His recall is getting better and hopefully in a few months we can get him trained up on that so we can take him to the dog park.
Obedience classes are also going very
well. He is back at home now so we will have to get back to the routine
again but I was so proud of him this past weekend and can’t wait to get
him out again for some camping and boating. We
got him a life jacket so he’ll be good to go
Maggie was born Dec 29th. Man she is such a joy, she never stops talking, if you are busy with something she comes over and makes sure you know she's there. We have never had a pet that was as vocal as she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has become quite the boater, she rides much better than Spud a dog we adopted from the animal shelter, she just lays on the floor and rides the waves no problem. Would like to be on your email list for the news letter. I was just on your web site and enjoyed the journal on the puppy litter.

Hi Lori, just a quick update on our Meg. I think she's finally decided that she's in Schnauzer heaven. She's had a fun summer chasing squirrels and rabbits and "Never" going out of the yard. John and I both love her but her first love is Sheffie. They have a great time together and have given us a lot of laughs. Boy, do they have different personalities!!! Sheff is still our softie and would be a lap dog if he wasn't so big. Meg is very independent and loves being outdoors. It's so nice that she can now stay outside without us having to constantly watch her. She is always ready to play and keeps Sheff on his toes. Where Sheff's world is complete if he can be near us, hers is complete if she can hear that we're close by and Sheff is with her. It's a lovely family we have. Thanks again.

Jazz and I are trying our hand at Open
level obedience. We are inching our way back from a total melt down
earlier this summer. Forgot everything weeks before our first CDX trial in
Fredericton. We got most of it back but not enough to earn a leg. Not much
better at the Rothesay show, although I only entered her in one trial to
see where we were. Had a chance to chat with Line Champagne and to cheer
Lia on to a Group 4 win. Pretty impressive considering there were 14
breeds in the group!
Lori, I thought you
might enjoy and update on Jessie (Mersey/Pirate March 29/05).
Baxter is doing
excellent. He is at the age now where he seems to be able to
understand what I'm trying to teach him. I'm surprised how much he likes to
jump. I'm not talking about jumping on people I mean down the stairs, off
the rock walks and anywhere he can get some air.

Cayenne is doing
extremely well--all 3 vets and ALL of their staff want to kidnap him! they
LOVE Cayenne--you name it they love it, That is a compliment to your
ability as a breeder.
Hope you and the dogs are having a great summer and
Cayenne is certainly having one big adventure after another. He
loves navigating his way through the gardens as he goes from rocks to dirt
to lava rocks to flowers to grasses.
I needed to tell you that this little guy (Otto) is the light of our life and exactly what was need for our empty nest!
He is without a doubt the most exquisite dog we have known. He has the most perfect markings, coat and teeth and is quick as a whip. We were unable to get him into fall obedience class but hope to start him in Jan. We have taught him to heel and sit when we stop. Works in progress continue with staying in the yard, sitting at the door when people knock, stay. He knows to sit, shake, speak, sit handsome, turn around and hold cookies on his nose!
He is a jumper! Straight up to my shoulder! I am going to check into a fun agility club we have here, in the spring.
We needed to thank you for allowing Otto to come our way. We would consider adopting another younger dog if the opportunity arises. Please keep us in mind.
Thanks Lori...and by the way, I really enjoy going back to your website and seeing all of Otto's relatives!! They all look just like him!
