How much for the puppy? We determine price based on size and color of eyes. The smaller the puppy full grown the more the cost and if blue eyes the more the cost. For more information on pricing, please email me at: email@example.com
Can we come see the puppies? Not before they are 8 weeks old, sorry, just too easy for them to be exposed to things that they aren’t used to and get sick. Just not worth it for me. I do post lots of pictures and video of them – so you can see their personalities shine – be sure to follow us on social media so you don’t miss out on any of those!
We would like to come meet the parent dogs, when can we do that? It’s our policy here at Tara’s Schnauzers that since we aren’t a kennel or a farm, but it is our humble home – for the safety of our dogs and humans on several levels we can’t allow people to just come look at our dogs. Not to mention we are very busy with our lives. As stated above, be sure to follow us on social media so you can see videos of our dogs running and playing and having a good time, inside our house and out!
What are they registered? Most are AKC. If a certain registry is important to you, please be sure to ask – but I do try to post on puppies page too! When in doubt about anything, please ask!
Are their tails docked and dewclaws removed? Yes, their tails are docked and dewclaws removed.
Do you crop their ears? No, we specifically breed for the floppy ear, we don’t do ear-cropping, that is an elective surgery on the owners part.
Do they come vaccinated?I vaccinate one vaccine at a time and for what can kill them: parvo and distemper. I use a MLV (modified live) vaccine that has been very good for our breeding program. Since using these vaccines I haven’t had to worry about parvo at all, which is a beautiful thing! I have seen first hand what vaccine damage can do, and so my protocol is very minimal, while still being very effective.
Are they wormed? I use all natural wormers, I don’t like the harsh chemical wormers which have been proven to be ineffective after a while and need to be alternated, and usually make a big mess out of the puppies poops for awhile. Instead I use food grade Diatamaceous Earth, pumpkin seeds and MSM in their food as soon as I start weaning them. It is used every day until they leave. (more on this in my FREE rawfeeding e-booklet)
