As responsible Miniature Schnauzer breeders, Each mini schnauzer that finds its new home is an extension our family. Our cutting edge health testing, comprehensive socialization program, and continued adopter support are all done to provide the best possible experience for the families that receive our schnauzers.

We base the foundation of our breeding program on our health testing. Every Miniature Schnauzer adult is health tested to ensure they are healthy phenotypically and provide the best possible chance to produce healthy puppies. We also track the genetic makeup of our dogs through health records to the amount of recessive genetic problems within our bloodlines. This level of health focus is extremely rare within Miniature Schnauzer breeders. Most breeders simply breed their adult schnauzers without an extensive knowledge of their genetic makeup or worse, knowingly breed unhealthy parents simply to make an extra dollar.

In creating the perfect family dog, we understand the importance of developing positive personality traits in our Miniature Schnauzer Puppies for sale. Proper socialization ensures that your Mini Schnauzer puppy will adapt smoothly to its new family member, other pets, and home life. We take each of our Fernweh Schnauzer puppies through our very own comprehensive socialization program before it goes home to its new family.
Early Neurological Stimulation is a technique to improve the long term ability of dogs to adjust to change and build upon socialization to changing stimuli. The training we follow was researched and created by Dr. Carmen L. Battaglia. Every puppy is introduced daily to new experiences and stimulation that help develop their behavior and personality. Each Schnauzer puppy is introduced to other dogs, children, and (approved) strangers. Experiences like bath time and walk time help each puppy develop the necessary confidence to help it positively respond to “trigger” environments where negative behavior might be a temptation. Many behavior issues that adult dogs develop are directly related to their experiences as a puppy. By creating positive, developmental experiences, we ensure our Mini Schnauzer puppies for sale develop into confident, well rounded adults.
The attention to detail that we create through our socialization program really sets us apart from other breeders. Time and again, we have been shocked to learn how other schnauzer breeders raise their puppies. Responsible Schnauzer breeding is not just about providing food, water and basic medical attention to your puppies. Good breeding practices must include daily socialization work with the puppies to ensure they develop properly and are ready to succeed in their new homes.
Because we view our miniature schnauzers as a family affair, we understand the importance of adopter support. We offer 24/7/365 support for all of our adopters’ questions. We know trainers and veterinary clinics can be extremely expensive, so we pride ourselves in being experts in all things Schnauzers. This is certainly not to say we can replace professional medical and training services, but knowledgeable support that actually cares can often times be priceless.

We love our little guy. The family was so easy to work with. We were able to surprise our girls with a Christmas puppy. He is a great addition to our family!
Our family's experience with Fernweh Schnauzers was fantastic. Barney was safely delivered to our home and immediately wanted to play and explore. He is very social and loves to meet everyone in the neighborhood. Very soon into his time with us he began to want to play with the other dogs in town and now has many friends which he sees everyday on his walks. He is growing up very quickly and we couldn't be happier.

These are top notch Schnauzer breeders. We got our coco from Fernweh and the entire experience was great. They are professional, health focused, and take very good care of their dogs. I cannot say enough about our Coco. Thank You!
One word...AWESOME! Wonderful experience all around. I love my pup so much I’m looking to get another.
We picked up our sweet Lillie Grace, (formerly Bella), a week ago, and she is just adorable. We were so impressed with Fernweh schnauzers owner, Erica. They were wonderful and so imformative about the food and shots and any other concerns we had about Lillie. She has been so content and just had no problem fitting in to her new home. We have had a wonderful experience buying from them and would recommend to anyone, this is the place to get your new furbaby.
We welcomed our Fernweh Schnauzer Marley into our family last year and he has been such a wonderful addition! He is our first pet and is instantly loved by humans and dogs alike. The process was so seamless and we would highly recommend working with Erica! It’s been the best decision that we made and certainly will be looking to her in the future when we’re ready to give Marley a sibling. Thank you! ❤️
Fernweh schnauzers bred and raised our schnauzer puppy, Stella. She has a great personality and is extremely healthy. They really focus on healthy schnauzers and a great socialization program. Our experience was wonderful!
We ended up getting our puppy Moose from Fernwehschnauzers. They took such amazing care of the puppies while they were still with them. They took the time to socialize them, and had their children play with them. Communication and all the information passed along was great. I would highly recommend them. Moose is such a wonderful addition to our family! So happy he had a great start!
Olive is the 4th puppy we've raised.
She is the most well-adjusted, well-behaved and sweetest little girl we ever could have imagined!
It's clear to us that you worked on her socialization skills and took time to play with her and many toys so that she would become the wonderful pet that we love so much.
We are grateful and must thank you again for the wonderful job you did with our little girl. Her addition to our family was seamless and beautiful. We promise to continue to compliment you so others are made aware of how special Fernweh Schnauzers has been for us. -Werynski Family
