If you’re looking for a Miniature Schnauzer puppy in Fort Wayne, look no further than Richlene Kennels. Richlene, operated by Richard and Arlene Smith, have been involved with breeding and showing since the mid 1960’s.
Over the years, they have bred well over 200 Champion Miniature Schnauzers, as well as handling dogs for other breeders at dog shows. Though they have recently retired from showing dogs, they are still producing quality dogs with excellent temperaments and health at their Bass Road location.
“The Miniature Schnauzer is the best breed around” states Mrs. Smith, “They’re not a breed that sheds, they don’t have a doggy odor, and fit in well to nearly every lifestyle”.
Though the Miniature Schnauzer doesn’t shed, they do require professional grooming on a regular basis, which can be done by Mrs. Smith at Richlene Kennels. “I like for them to come in at least every six weeks” says Smith. A six week grooming schedule along with weekly brushing and combing by the owner will help keep the grooming experience good for your pet since there wont be an issue with tangles.
Many who have been around Miniature Schnauzers may consider them to be very vocal and even nippy. “My dogs aren’t like that”, says Smith, “they usually only bark when needed and don’t have a mean bone in their bodies”. With so many years with the breed, Mr. and Mrs. Smith have a well established line of dogs that many breeders aspire to have.
