We are a small, hobby - AKC show breeder originally from New Orleans, and reside in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. We have been in love with miniature schnauzers for over 30 years! We have never been a kennel and have only two or three miniature schnauzers that live with us in our home. Usually one of them is a puppy we are growing up to be our next star at the dog shows. Since we believe all miniature schnauzers deserve their own "humans" to supervise, most of our retired champions have found a forever home living the life of luxury!
Occasionally we breed in order to produce an outstanding "show dog". The best one or two puppies in a litter may be held on to as a potential show quality. Since we can't keep them all, the rest are available. Sometimes we will have an older puppy that we decided not to show or a retired champion adult available. We try to match puppies or adults and their new families personality together. It's great keeping up with our schnauzers and their families through e-mail pictures and stories. Perhaps the greatest reward is hearing the wonderful stories from our schnauzers' new owners. These wonderful little dogs seem to make such a positive impact on everyone they meet!
We are members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club (AMSC), the Tampa Bay Kennel Club (TBKC), and the Central Florida Miniature Schnauzer Club (CFMSC). We strive to breed healthy parents that test normal/clear for the recommended health screening by our parent club and conform to the breed standard.
Orleans Miniature Schnauzers has come a long way since we started showing over 20 years ago; one litter, one puppy and one champion at a time. Thank you for visiting our website!
