Über mich

My desire for a dog has been fulfilled rather late, only. After some of my extended family have got dogs, I could no longer hold back and was ready to share my life with a 4-legged companion.

The choice wasn't easy. I wanted a "handsome" dog who could easily join me in the office. Therefore rather a small breed, but still a "real" dog with good proportions. Funny, with good instincts and a brave heart, loving long walks as much as to cuddle in front of the TV.

It took us almost one year. Various breeds had been considered and finally dismissed. But than I came across a breed called "Miniature Schnauzer". I sent my resumee of "the perfect dog" to various breeders and came in contact with the De-GabriTho Kennel. The breeder Gabi Thoma introduced me to a 4 1/2 months old Miniature Schnauzer girl which instantly hit my heart. Less than half an hour later Granada de GabriTho "Pepper" was lying in my arms on our way home.

December 13th, 2003 "Pepper" had her first litter. 6 cute little puppies were lying next to our bed, changing our normal quiet live into a crazyhouse for more than eight weeks. With five puppies we had to part rather quickly and had to hand them over to their new families. Only one, the no. 1 of the litter, refused to leave the house. He had already made his mind up and soon it was clear, that Jackson de GabriTho "Jacob" would never leave the place of his birth. Thus we suddenly had a pair of miniature schnauzers and even less room in our bed.

"Pepper" and "Jacob" are regular visitors in dog school and are trained in agility and obedience. Both have achieved already advanced levels in these dogsports and, especially "Pepper", is participating in various competitions on a regular basis. Nowadays the two of them are the bosses and manage the pack with souverain superiority. They teach our younger dogs and puppies the important things in life, and the silly things as well, of course.

The name of the kennel "Peppersdegabritho" has been chosen as a compliment to our "Pepper", who will always be the most important miniature schnauzer in my live.  

It's our goal to breed first quality dogs with excellent pedigree, character and health. We choose the pedigree for our litters very carefully and are only interested in continuing and improving the quality of this breed

The raising of our puppies is done with utmost care. We want to give them the best start in live possible, to prepare them for all future impressions. We want them to develop as self assured dogs with strong and good character. Love and consequent training is the secret to a fulfilled relationship between a miniature schnauzer and its owner.

It is important to us that we can release our puppies into the care of loving responsible owners where they can secure their place as a real family member. We like to keep contact to the new families. Meanwhile, most are close friends.  We are happy to be allowed to keep track of the development of our puppies.
