Well, we’ve made it to February, and as expected, the groundhog saw his shadow and is predicting another 6 weeks of winter. Not a bad gig for a Giant Schnauzer; now if the DEEP FREEZE and WIND CHILL would go away, we’d get to have some fun!
8 week old Giant Schnauzer pups in the snow.
The pups turned 8 weeks old yesterday and have had their first vaccinations, complete check up, and microchips implanted. Lunatik left the nest yesterday, and in the coming weeks, Liebe and Lego will fly home, and Linus will be picked up. Loki and a few more will hang out until March, and we are still in the selection process for the specifics of who is going where.
As we’ve stated in previous posts, we do NOT rush our puppies out the door. We keep them, train them, socialize them, build their ball drive, and expose them to prey bite work, obstacle training, and daily adventures in the woods. By the time the puppies are 12 weeks old, their price does increase a little bit to reflect the additional vet care and training they receive.
We had pups from the K-litter right up until August of 2018 (not including Bermuda Blue!) and we are just as committed to providing the perfect homes for the L-litter, no matter how long it takes.
Over the coming weeks we will post individual profiles of the puppies still waiting for their forever homes. We do receive potential puppy owner questionnaires on a daily basis, and we do reply to all of them. If you are interested in being considered for a pup, please send us a completed questionnaire.
Fresh out of the bath, Lunatik von der Leidenschaft, aka Red Girl, prepares to go home with her new mom.
