Our next litter is due November 2nd!
It's hard to envision how a puppy will look as an adult. You can expect your Schnauzer to possibly undergo a color change starting from a few weeks after birth up to adulthood. A Schnauzer’s coat can change color over time due to clipping, aging, health and diet, and genetics. Their coats can also fade as they age. This puppy's brown color turned a beautiful silver at his first grooming at 7 weeks.
For the first 3 weeks the puppy's whole day is nursing from their mother, sleeping, and wiggling around their pen. Around 4 weeks you begin to see a personality emerge. At 5 weeks they are playing with their siblings and exploring their surroundings. It is not possible to know their disposition before this time.
From day 1 our family is interacting with each puppy. They are held and cuddled and getting used to humans and their touch. We sit in their play area and socialize with each one. They learn to use puppy pads and play with doggy toys. Our grandsons help them to learn about children and they are also visited by the family cat around 6 - 7 weeks. We do not take them outside until they have received their first shots. We want your puppy to be ready to go to your home so we try to expose them to as many household sights and noises as we can.
As mentioned in the contact section we can not allow visitors until the puppies have received their first shots because of the risk of disease, upsetting the mother, and the evergrowing risk of Covid 19. We will be posting very clear pics from 3 angles of each puppy to make sure you are able to see color and markings when you pick a puppy. We also post a Live video each week on our FaceBook page so every family can see their puppy progress and grow. In addition we will send pics of your puppy once a week. If requested, we would be happy to FaceTime your puppy for you as well.
