Hello and thank you in advance for taking the time to read my web page..

I am a small elite kennel breeding QUALITY Black Pedigree Miniature Schnauzers.  I have been specialising in Blacks for around 15yrs now.  Focusing on temperaments and the breed standard.  Aiming towards Solid Blacks that will not fade out.  My blood lines are not the average run of the mill so to speak.  They are from imported lines with exceptional pedigrees.

I imported two of my Sires all the way from South America the FIRST of their blood line to be in NZ.  Both Boys have Black, Black parentage on both sides. 

My newest import Is Dicksin I imported him 2019, he is the son of GER & HRV & ITL JR CH. VENTO_N DI MONTE GENTILE who is from a world class kennel in Italy.  His genetic family being No1 in the world show ring.  Black bloodlines of course all the way  on each side of his pedigree.

In summary I have Black blood lines from South America, Italy, Australia and Russia

My dogs are Very much LOVED and play a huge part in our family life. They live in our home (not kennels) where they enjoy our company and have a luxury life, They are our best mates.  All the dogs enjoy having the freedom of 60 acres to run about on.  We are situated on the outskirts of Taupo.

All my dogs have lovely natures, exceptional temperaments.  I would not have a snappy dog around my grand children.

Each puppy is given the best possible start in life with loads of cuddles and attention.  They are well socialized with other dogs and children.  Pups are weaned onto Black Hawk Puppy food along with a lot of natural foods. Toilet training starts at 3.5wks of age on newspaper/pee pads then onto grass.  All pups are 95% toilet trained by the time they leave for their new homes at 8wks of age. 

I give all new owners weekly updates on their puppy as they grow with photos and videos, so everyone is kept well informed on their babies progress.

All pups are Vet checked and given their 1st vaccination before leaving.  New owners are given a information booklet, Vet book, 6wk free pet insurance, collar, a fleecy blanket, Black Hawk puppy pack and enough prepared food on the day of collection.  Plus on going support of course if needed.

My dog family as follows:-

Apolo..He is the oldest of my sires and my first boy to be imported from South America back in 2014. He is a very loyal boy with great manners and gentle nature.  Of course he is at the top of the pecking order being the older male. Apolo has a long line of Black Black in his pedigree.

Ace.. Is my second Import from South America.  A totally separate blood line to Apolo.  He comes from a kennel that has many world champions all around the word.  Ace is a soft boy and loves the grand kids.

Dicksin..My newest import.  He is TRULY a stunning looking boy and comes from a LONG line of Blacks on both sides of his pedigree.  He is a cheeky boy with a big personality.

Lilly.. She is now 10yrs old and of course been retired for many years.  Lilly has an exptional nature and  just loves everyone. She has breed that nature into her girls that I have kept over the years.  Everyone loves our Lilly girl she holds a special place in our hearts.

Saffron..Is the daughter of Apolo and Lilly is her grandmother.  She has a quite nature and just loves to have a cuddle on my knee.  She also loves giving a chase to any bunny she happens to come across one on our walks.

Meadow..Lives with Lianne a lovely lady that shows her.  She is now a NZ Champion.  Also best of breed in 2018. Meadow has great confirmation to the breed standard.  A lovely looking girl.

Rosella..Is the FULL sister to Meadow and with a toss of the coin it could have been her in the show ring.   She is a quite girl and a great mum.  Rosella loves the paddocks and really enjoys the outdoors.

Autumn..The daughter of Ace, she is a softie like her dad.  A bit of a mischief likes my potted plants. She has not had a litter as yet so exciting times ahead to see what she produces.

Rain..A puppy only 6mths old.  She also lives with Lianne as she is heading to the show ring with Meadow.  Her dad is from RUSSIA so another new blood line to my kennel.  Rain has a sweet nature and has learned the grooming ropes very easily. She is not related to any of my sires, so extra exciting times ahead when she finally has babies down the track. Rain is perfect to the breed standard great specimen of the mini schnauzer.

Ivy..Is the FULL sister to Rain so of course her dad is also from RUSSIA.  She is a cutie with great manners and good listening skills.  Loves to  So of course she is not related to any of my sires either.  Ivy being a puppy is busy and loves to play. A great looking girl with good confirmation.
