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 Spring litters that are arriving in June. Now is a great time to get on the Waiting list.

Happy Birthday! Puppies turn 1 years old!

Our Litter from last year all turned 1 years old May 13 Monday!   Happy Birthday to all our dear doggies!    I welcome any and all photos that anyone can share with updates on your Schnoodle dog.   

Oscar and Maya had a first Birthday Party together!  It looks like everyone had a wonderful time!  Thank you for sharing your note and your pictures!

Happy Birthday Oscar & Maya
Hi Mary! 
 How are you?  I've been following along on the blog still and very excited for Dixie's upcoming litter as well as your newest addition to the family, Coco!  Glad to know you will still be breeding for a few more years to come as I'm sure Oscar (and I) will be ready for a little brother or sister in a few more years :) 
 Well I just wanted to give you an update on our little babies who are not so little anymore.  Of course as you know Oscar and Maya turned 1 last Monday and how could we not throw them a joint first birthday party!  

They literally have everything you could possibly need for a dog themed birthday party so we had a BBQ at Eric and Deb's house with our families and close friends.  I actually found dog cake mix too at the grocery store and of course we had to sing happy birthday and blow out candles so I made them birthday cupcakes...they put the whole things in their mouths and were gone in about less than 30 seconds  :) Attached are some photos to share with you from the big celebration that we thought you would get a kick out of (and I also snuck in a picture of Oscar from last month, just because it may be the cutest picture I have of him :). 

Oscar full grown is just about 22 pounds now and Maya is 16 pounds.  I actually had to get Oscar the next crate size up a couple of months ago as he outgrew the original size you had recommended and didn''t have enough room to lie down, he loves the new one!  Eric and Deb have been using the litter box for Maya through this first year and are going to start to take it away from her as well as taking her crate away and see how she does.  I on the other hand have a little boy who likes to get into trouble when he's left alone and can't be trusted :)  Oscar developed some separation anxiety from me and would cry/bark really really loud when I would leave him (I could hear him in the parking garage of my building or down on the street it was that bad).  

Oscar and Maya play Tug-of-War
I got him the citronella bark collar and that actually worked really well.  Within the first few days of using it, he definitely understood its purpose and I would just put it on him without actually having to turn it on and am happy to report he does not need to wear it regularly anymore.  He also however started chewing through every blanket, towel, sheet and dog bed I tried leaving in his crate with him and that never stopped unfortunately so for now he just has his toys in his crate with him during the day when i'm not working from home which he certainly seems fine with.  I wanted to get him a new dog bed though now that he is 1 but I just dont want to spend more money on something that will last him 1 day with him chewing through it so if you have any advice for me on how to break him of this habit I would welcome it!  My dog walker suggested I try to go crate free and gate him in my kitchen area, which sounded perfect except when I came home one day I learned just how super high of a jumper he is in that he was able to jump up to the top of my kitchen counter (which is ridiculously high) and help himself to some of his treats.  This dog can jump, let me tell you, especially when he is determined :)

Oscar at 1 year old
My next door neighbor just got a red Cavapoo puppy (she is about 13 weeks now) who looks just like Oscar as a baby and they became instant buddies.  Its almost like they think they are siblings they love playing with each other that much it is too cute.  Whenever we go for a walk and come back inside he sits right in front of her door and cries and according to my neighbor she does the same thing to our door.  I wish I had a picture of the two of them for you, the resemblance is uncanny I will have to send one soon.  Now that the weather is finally nice again Oscar is loving the outdoors going on long runs and looking forward to our upcoming trip back to the beach (Maya will be coming with us this time too).  I actually took him rock climbing/hiking with me at Carderock a couple of weeks ago which turned out to be the perfect activity for his jumping skills!  I was definitely more afraid than my fearless little guy who jumped up and down the rocks with the greatest of ease.

Oscar at 1 year old
He couldn't be a more loving, affectionate and just absolutely wonderful dog!  I feel like everytime I email you I tell you how grateful I am for you giving me the best dog I could have ever hoped for, but each and every day with him it is just that much truer!  Thanks again Mary and good luck with the new litter of babies!!  Can't wait to see their pictures!

Deposits for 2013 Schnoodle Litter

I am now collecting $100 deposits for the 2013 Schnoodle litter.  I have contacted the first 7 people on the waiting list.  If anyone has changed their mind and does not wish to purchase a Schnoodle from the 2013 litter, I will remove their name from the list, and allow the next person waiting to send a deposit.

The deposits are refundable until the litter is born.  When the puppies have arrived, we can see how many puppies their are, the genders, the color, etc.  At that time the people who have sent deposits will have the opportunity to purchase a puppy, by putting half down on the purchase of a puppy.  Anyone who does not wish to purchase a puppy will have their deposit returned.

If you are on the 2013 waiting list, now is the time to check your status on that page.   See 2013 Waiting List Page or visit link below...
If you are one of the first 7 people on the list, you should contact me now.  If you are not one of the first 7 people please consider that those who have sent deposits may still change their mind.  The puppies from this litter are not sold until they are actually born.

I am writing this note to be sure there are no failures in communication.  My wish is to be as fair to everyone as I am able.  Best wishes to all!
