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.

Puppy Calendar and Visitations

The information below is important for each of the 6 families that are on the Waiting List to buy a puppy.  Please read carefully.

Buying a Puppy:   We already have deposits on this litter.   Each family has paid half of the payment toward their puppy.  The remainder is due at the time of pick up....Cash only please.

Developmental Stages:  Each week that goes by the puppies go through major developmental stages.  Before 5 weeks of age, the puppies are not able to interact very much with the world around them.  They are also susceptible to illness.   For this reason, visitors are not allowed before 5 weeks of age.   After 5 weeks of age, it is safe to have visitors....but the older the puppy is, the more you will find the experience to be rewarding and enjoyable....because the puppies will have so much more personality the closer they are to 8 weeks old.

Visitation: The best time to visit is between 6-7 weeks of age.   I presently plan an Open House on Sat. Week 7 between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.    I have arranged a 2 hour slot because it is taxing on the puppies to be held and engaged for too much longer.  They still need to sleep a lot at this age.   Please contact me if you wish to have an individual visit at some other time during the week.  I am CLOSED on Sundays.   Outdoor Playtime Visits will be very limited if the temperature is above 90 degrees.

Please refer to the chart below and mark your calendars accordingly.   Please contact me to let me know when you decide to visit.  Please make prior arrangements if you need me to keep your puppy after Saturday, Aug 25.
