Crate Package - $75-199 plus tax
All our puppies are started on crate training prior to leaving for their new homes. Most will be very comfortable being in a crate for short periods of time (This makes potty training a breeze). As a new puppy owner, we know your life will be considerably less frustrating if you continue to use a crate after you take your puppy home. If you would like a crate for your puppy, we have put together three different crate packages for your convenience. The crate in your package will be sized to fit your puppy as an adult so it should be the only crate you need for your puppy. Crates are also airline approved so if you fly with your dog as an adult, you can use the same crate when shipping your dog as cargo. Our basic crate package starts at just $75 plus tax and includes the crate, crate pad/bed, toy and your puppy being bathed and groomed before it leaves for your home. Purchased separately, this is a $145 value that you get for $75. We also have an upgraded crate package and a Puppy Starter Kit available. The various packages, what is included in each and the prices are outlined below. Please let us know if you want any of these packages added to your invoice.
Shipping - Prices Vary
We ship our puppies across Canada long as puppies are at least 8 weeks and 4 days old. If you live too far away to come pick up your puppy, we can ship it to you via air on WestJet. Prices for shipping will vary according to the weight of the puppy and crate, the size of the crate and the distance the puppy travels. Prices are approximately $275-$300 and are subject to change. If you are shipping the puppy, the basic crate package will automatically be added to your invoice because you must have an airline approved crate for shipping. This way we make sure it is the right size for your puppy and the puppy has time to get used to being in it before it is shipped. Your puppy must be paid for in full (including the shipping charges) by the time it is 8 weeks old. We will coordinate the shipping date and time with you in advance. Please be flexible as to times as we prefer to ship puppies on the most direct flight available to minimize the stress to the puppy. Going to their new owners is a stressful time whether they live across the road or across the country. To lessen the impact, we keep them 4 days longer than other breeders (proven to make a significant difference) and send them off with an item bearing the smells of their old home and littermates. I don’t believe airline travel adds a lot to the stress, given that puppies sleep 18 hours a day at that age, and are likely to sleep most of the way. We reserve the right to keep the puppy here longer if necessary to make sure it is physically and emotionally ready for the trip.
The aim of our puppy pricing policy is to be as fair as possible to everyone on our list waiting for their precious new puppy. Backed by the latest science and decades of experience, we do all we can to ensure your puppy will be a healthy and enjoyable canine companion. Because of this, our puppies are simply the best that money can buy and are priced accordingly, at the top of the market. From time to time we increase the price of our puppies in accord with prevailing market conditions. Our policy on pricing is as follows: The price we quote to you at the time you make your deposit will be the price you pay for your puppy provided that:
- Your deposit securing your place on our waiting list is received within 7 days of that email, and:
- You accept the first puppy you are offered that conforms to the preferences you stated on joining the list. Alternatively, if you postpone to a later litter for any reason, the new price you will pay will be in accord with the prices current at the time you postponed.
When you are offered a puppy from a new litter and decide to accept your placement in that litter, an additional payment of $1000 toward the purchase price is required within 3 days of acceptance. The remaining balance is payable when your puppy is 8 weeks old (puppies go home at 8 weeks and 4 days of age). We are under no obligation to notify you of changes to our prices. However, we are happy to answer your inquiries at any time. If a price rise affects you that you consider unacceptable to your expectations or circumstances, we will promptly refund 100% of your deposit at your request. Our policy on deposits is as follows: Your position on the list is strictly determined by the date the waiting list deposit is received. If we are unable to provide a puppy for you in the time-frame estimated in our first email to you, and you wish to leave the list, you are entitled to a fast and complete refund. If you cancel your placement on the list for any reason we will refund your deposit minus $100 admin fee. If you cancel your placement on the list after being allocated and accepting a puppy your payment(s) to date is/are non-refundable but will be held for you as a credit on your next puppy. Our policy on puppies boarded with us past 8 weeks and 4 days of age Final payment needs to be complete by the time your puppy is 8 weeks old. Puppies are ready to leave for homes when they are 8 weeks and 4 days old. While every care is taken, any puppy kept here past that date is here at the owner’s risk.
We accept cash, cheque, PayPal or etransfer for all deposits and 2 week puppy payments. Final payments must be cash, etransfer or PayPal. Please do not make a payment unless one is requested of you.

We sell three sizes of Schnauzers – Miniature, Toy and Teacup. We also breed to produce nearly every possible color that exists for a Schnauzer. Our purchase price for a puppy varies depending on size and color.
While we do our best to estimate puppy size at maturity based on size of parents and previous litters etc, we cannot guarantee mature size. We do our best to give you an accurate estimate and where the estimate sits on the border between two sizes, the price charged will be the lower price.
