  1. We love our Mini Schnauzer, Capone! We could not more highly recommend Dayle and her pups.

  2. We have had Marley for about 6 weeks now and we absolutely LOVE her. She was the runt of the litter and therefore a little bit older when we received her so that she had more time with her mum and met her milestones – this showed just how much Dayle and Ian care about their puppies wellbeing. Marley arrived and adopted us on the first night and she had clearly been used to being handled, loved and training had clearly begun – which from our perspective was fabulous!! She has the nicest nature and the communication we had from Dayle and Ian was outstanding in the lead up for Marley’s transportation to us in the lower South Island. I cannot speak more highly of Dayle and Ian as breeders and their professionalism and most importantly the care they clearly have of their dogs and puppies. If you are looking for a breeder you could not find better people than Schnauzinn Kennels.

  3. We highly recommend you as breeders as there is no doubt you love and care for your dogs/puppies. It’s been great having a dog that is used to grooming and also with a secure nature. I believe his beautiful loving caring nature is due to your loving care in his early days, and I am so glad we got him from you. Jesse is absolutely gorgeous, he is so affectionate, kisses and cuddles as much as he can. He loves his walks, and doesn’t miss anything going on in the house, always ready to be playful and mischievous. It is great to have the rehoming policy though I doubt we would ever want to part with him and because he is much loved extended family would have him. Thank you too for all the helpful advice as we prepared to receive him into our home. I cannot thank you enough for my boy Jesse.

  4. You could not ask for more professional, supportive and knowledgeable breeders than Dayle and Ian at Schnauzinn Kennels. Their attention and care in raising healthy, gentle and sweet natured dogs is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Your puppy news is sent through weekly from when they are born, so you see every step of the way – videos, photos and a progress overview. Then, not only do you get a delightful little bundle, but you have an added “Puppy Pack” that has everything from genetic test results and how to look after and groom your new addition, to food, a brush, a toy – the list just keeps going! Add to all of this their ongoing support and availability. It is with great pleasure I recommend them. Be assured you are getting the best from the best.

  5. We have had our mini schnauzer Billy for almost one year now. He is a sweet and loving little guy and has a gentle nature and gets along with dogs and people. He has been a wonderful family member. We really appreciate the hard work that Dayle and Ian have put into raising their schnauzers and the time and effort they put in to make sure that they provide the very best service before and after we got Billy. If you are looking for a mini schnauzer, we highly recommend Schnauzinn!

  6. Koda is coming up 9 months and he is an absolute STAR. He came to us (mostly) toilet trained, crate trained and was well on the way to knowing his name. This in itself is testimony to the hard work that Schnauzinn Kennels do with the puppies and what they do for the future owners. I loved being involved in the whole process, right from when they were born until they came home to us – with the weekly photos, videos and updates. I highly recommend Schnauzinn Kennels – thank you for all the help that you provided as we prepared for puppy to come home and the ongoing support that I know would be provided if we ever needed it.

  7. Roscoe is now 9 months old. He became part of our family in June 2020.
    He is widely admired by all who meet him and so much fun. He is a confident, smart, playful dog, extremely well socialised and excellent around both people and other dogs.
    We are sure that by in large his good nature is largely attributable to Dayle and Ian’s careful breeding program and the way he was cared for and socialised, at Schnauzinn Kennels, before he came to us at 9 weeks of age.
    From the moment we went on the waiting list for a Schnauzinn pup John and I felt well informed and supported. Dayle and Ian communicated consistently with us after Roscoe’s birth, with many photos of his litter, and willingly answered all our questions about managing a new puppy. The whole experience of getting Roscoe was smooth and most enjoyable.
    We unreservedly recommend Dayle and Ian of Schnauzinn Kennels as responsible, experienced and caring breeders.

  8. we were lucky enough to contact Dayle by chance after loosing our 14 year old boy, Astro. After a couple of visits and many conversations with Dayle, we were very very lucky to have the opportunity to rehome 4 year olds Misha and Allie after they retired from the breeding program. Both of the girls are so well healed and intelligent that they settled quickly into our busy but adventurous lives…….. we would never be without them a we stay in constant contact with Dayle and Ian with a view to another rehoming in the future.

    If you can’t do the puppy thing like us, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending rehoming a Schauzinn, mature, dog or dame.

  9. I just collected beautiful baby Fritz today from Dayle and Ian and can’t speak highly enough of how wonderfully prepared the puppies are for us. He is toilet trained, sits, comes to his name and is a very sweet natured fellow. That shows how well reared he has been and I could see how fond they were of him when saying goodbye.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Schnauzinn Kennels.

  10. We are absolutely smitten with Phoebe……she was so worth the wait!!!!. She has the most amazing temperament and was so easy to settle in. You did the most amazing job with her in those early weeks to set her up for success. Thank you for all the tips and advice you provided too. You were so easy and approachable to deal with. One very happy customer here. Something tells me I might need another one soon haha.

  11. Im lucky enough to have three beautiful Schnauzinn pups now and Darcy Asha and Delta have all come into our family the same all happy healthy and have exceptional natures with each we had the girls fit into our family without a hitch and Dayle and Ian provided detailed information to help our pups settle in and they have given us alot of joy as pets and all three now successful show dogs, would recommend Schnauzinn without hesitation!!!

  12. Reily, a retired breeding girl from Schnauzinn has only been in my home with my 2 elderly girls for a short while but has settled in so quickly. She’s intelligent, sparky, well behaved and very respectful towards my old girls. I’m thankful Dayle and Ian trusted me to rehome such a lovely natured girl into my family.

  13. We are the very proud owners of Rubie a 3 and a half yr old Schnauzinn girl.Dayle and Ian went to so much trouble to ensure the exchange went smoothly.About Rubie a girl with abundant personality,so easy to train,loves learning new tricks etc lt was the work that Dayle and Ian put into building the strong foundation for us to build onEver grateful to you both Irene and John Austen

  14. We have two Schnauzinn girls. one 4 years old and onec15 months. We appreciate Dayle and Ian’s dedication to their dogs and pups. Especially like the genetic testing programme and that their breeding dogs are imported. We highly recommend Schnauzinn Kennels and would only buy a pup from here.
