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.

Schnoodles love Water!

You might remember a post several years ago about how Maya the Schnoodle loved to play catch in the ocean.   This summer I received another post about how Pukah learned to swim.  Here is the letter.....

I thought we'd send a fun summer update on Pukah  since he has discovered a new way to have fun and cool off.  We decided that this was the year to teach him to be a water-dog so that he could enjoy the pool with us.  At first he didn't want much to do with it beyond getting his feet wet on the steps.  We took a page from good old Cesar on the Dog Whisperer and used the leash to pretty much gently force him to follow us into the pool.   For the first 10 minutes there was a lot of flailing and not much swimming.  But all of a sudden he calmed down and could almost see him think, "Hey, this is kind of fun!"   Suddenly he was swimming with purpose (and a lot less splashing!) and that's when the fun really started.  After 40 minutes of throwing a bumper into the pool for him, we had to force him out of the water so that WE could take a break.  This will definitely be a fun way to work off some of that energy without having to worry about this muggy heat.

 Many people do not realize that Schnoodles are water dogs.  This is because poodles were originally bred to be water retrievers and Schnoodles do have a lot of poodle in their genetic background.   On top of being a 50% Schnauzer 50% poodle mix, the Schnauzer already has poodle in his genes.   The Miniature Schnauzer was originally created by breeding the Standard Schnauzer with the Poodle and the Afenpincher to get the smaller size.   So in reality there is more of the poodle in the Schnoodle background then you might realize.

So go ahead and give your Schnoodle an opportunity to enjoy the water.  It sure sounds like a lot of fun everyone involved!
