The way that you become part of our extended family of Schnauzer owners is to start with a deposit. Our website and Facebook pages (Stephanie’s Schnauzers) will announce the pregnancies of our moms and will give you a great view of the puppies available, the moms and dads, and our home environment.
Some buyers are excited to dive in when they find out on our pages that a mom is expecting and contact us to be placed on a call list for when the puppies arrive, this establishes a priority number for choosing a soon-to-arrive pup. However, I do not take deposits before a litter is born. (We always reserve, first pick but may not use it). Other buyers wait until they see photos of the puppies on-line and then call to place their deposit. Deposits are $300 and are nonrefundable, since we have reserved a puppy for you and turned away other callers. The deposit can be transferred to one later litter if you decide the current litter is not for you. Deposits can be made through paypal, check, credit card, and cash.
My puppies go for $1800.00 . You may ask why so much? The reason for my price is that you get what you pay for. With Stephanie’s Schnauzers you are guaranteed a healthy and well socialized, happy puppy. It comes with vet visits, tail and dewclaws removed, appropriate shots and de-worming. It also comes with a pre-paid lifetime microchip, and paid for AKC limited papers and also a puppy care package on the day it goes home. Along with a genetic health guarantee that you can read on my guarantee page. You also get access to me 7 days a week 365 days a year for the life time of your pet. All my breeding dogs have champion pedigrees including international champion pedigrees. What does this mean? It means that I have taken the time and money to assure you that you are getting the best miniature schnauzer puppy a buyer can have. I am dedicated to the confirmation and temperament of my dogs. I will not have a breeding dog that has aggressive or nipping tendencies in my program. You may say, well I can find a puppy on craigslist for $500. Yes you can, but you will get what you pay for. In purchasing a low-cost puppy, you will accrue numerous vet bills. In time, these bills will add up to the price of purchasing a genetically sound puppy from a reputable breeder.
We will arrange a visit to our home to visit your puppy at 6 weeks. You will meet the puppy, mom and dad, and view our home. Because it is important to guard the health of the puppies, we are not able to allow just general visits of our property and dogs. We ask for you to pay your balance due after deposit at your 6 week visit. The final balance is $1500 which makes the puppy price total of $1800. If you have put a deposit down after the puppy is 6 weeks old then you can pay off at the time of pick up. All final payments are in cash. You will enjoy bonding and playing with your puppy and getting him/her ready for a new home.
Picking up your puppy
At 8 weeks we will arrange a time for you to pick up your puppy and take him/her home. If you need me to keep the puppy past eight weeks old -- I charge $5 a day boarding fee after two days of the stated pick-up date. You will get a full record of vet visits, shots given, and what shots are needed in the future. Information for AKC papers will be gone over, and you will receive a puppy goodie bag to take home. The goodie bag includes: a five pound bag of puppy Fromm, training treats, chew toys, teething necessities, and a sample of NuVet vitamins. Then your new Schnauzer family member will head home with you and your family for its happy future life.
