Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 4 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.

Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)

They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!

We sell our puppies through our Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to be contacted with updates on the next litter email me at GrowingPuppies@gmail.com

Update: We are so excited for our winter puppies. I also hope for a litter in Summer 2018.

Dixie gets a Hair Cut

Dixie with her untrimmed fur.
With only 2 weeks to go until the whelping date, I decided I better get Dixie trimmed up.  If I wait any longer, it will be too uncomfortable for Dixie to jump in the bath tub or stand for the grooming process.  Her winter coat was getting pretty long, so it is better not to wait.  The birth is a messy event, and the more fur, the more mess.

It is especially important for Dixie's face to be trimmed as she will be cleaning herself and her puppies a lot once they are born.  The white beard is definitely not an asset during whelping time.  I can trim it short, but would never remove the whole beard...after all, that's what defines a Schnauzer!

 The eye brows, cheeks, and ears, will also look better once they are trimmed down.  Her underside also has to be trimmed short, since the pups need to find their food source and extra fur harbors germs and bacteria.
Dixie is not looking forward to her haircut!

After the haircut, we can see Dixie's eyes again!

So over the weekend I bathed Dixie and trimmed her face short.  I left the fur on her back a little longer than usual since it is still pretty cold outside.  She is a very obedient dog, and stands still for me without a special grooming table or leash.
You can see Dixie's round belly in this picture.
Combing the beard. 

Trimmed and ready to go, Dixie's side furnishings are just long enough to hide her tummy.
