Breed Information

Minis assume some of the most unusual positions!

American Miniature Schnauzer Club offers quite a bit of great information. Check out these two pages first:

Miniature Schnauzers
The Standard

The Miniature Schnauzer Club of Canada has much the same info as its American counterpart.

The American Kennel Club can offer you a wealth of information about not just Miniature Schnauzers, but any breed you would like to research. has a history page that is representative of what many Miniature Schnauzer sites have. Everybody is reading the same books! The site also has a very comprehensive reading list covering a large variety of information. It is worth checking out. They also have a tribute page to Lori Bush including copies of Logos she had created. It is also worth looking at.

Wy-O's Miniature Schnauzers is also a very information rich site.

I found this article regarding the heredity of color in Schnauzers interesting, kind of like Mendel's work with the peas!
