Welcome imageWelcome imageWelcome image
My name is Jan, I am a Qualified, Professional Licensed Dog Breeder with over 25 years breeding experience and I am also a Licensed Microchip Implanter.

In June 2022 I became one of the very first Qualified Dog Breeders in the UK studying on the VERY FIRST and ONLY accredited, Ofqual regulated, Level 3 Certificate in Dog Breeding, Litter Socialisation & Welfare. This is a ground-breaking, first ever nationally accredited dog breeding course that has been championed by animal welfare professionals as a step towards creating a world where dog breeding is undertaken in an educated, professional and ethical way.

My Priority is Health & Temperament for the Perfect Family Pet.

All of my pups are conceived, whelped & reared within my home, without exception, and with 24/7 care and full veterinary support.

I "keep" Miniature Schnauzers, Toy Poodles, Biewer Terriers & Chihuahuas.
I "breed" for true Miniature Schnauzers (typical UK colours plus the highly delectable Liver Brown colour) as well as Toy Schnoodles, Biewdles, Boozers & tiny Biechi pups.

I breed Toy Breed Dogs which are considered to be Hypoallergenic, this is my speciality. I know through my own personal fight with animal allergies, that a dog's coat must be right for me before I can contemplate having the breed in my house and my life. An allergy sufferer is restricted to the number of breeds of dog that can be considered as there are not really that many breeds available which do not produce allergy symptoms to the inflicted. The true breeds that I keep are relatively good for me, my allergies are not at all affected by my Biewer Terriers or my Toy Poodles, and I can live with my Min Schnauzers as the majority of them have a softer coat (from my USA imported lines) than my UK breed lines who have a more harsh, wirey type coat which can affect me when I am grooming them. By picking out the best of each breed, in terms of genetics, health, robustness and resilience, and of course the best personalities and temperaments, then combining them responsibly for pups with a high % of hybrid vigour, it means that I can produce a choice of breeds for allergy sufferers, aswell as a dog that is healthy, full of life, happy and friendly and goes on to become an absolutely perfect companion.
