First and foremost my dogs are my much loved (and very spoiled pets), My dogs are not used as "breeding machines" and are not "profit makers" for me.
From what you have read so far you may gather that first and foremost my Miniature Schnauzers are my passion and my pets. Because of this they lead a very good life and together we participate in many different activities. I travel all around Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia for competitions and enjoy the bonding shared when we travel together.
My dogs particpate in the following weekly training & / or formal competions with success-
My dogs also particpate in the following community enhancement programs (when time permits):

Life is certainly not "all work and no play" for my babies
They have lots of fun with the following 'just for fun' activities:
Swimming at the Beach
Going to the Park
Going to Obedience & Agility Clubs
Off Leash Running / Playing
Being in the house for Cuddles & Pats
Sleeping in the house . . . and on the Bed!
Riding on Public Transport for trips into the City (Melbourne Central)
Staying with me in Dog Friendly Motels and Caravan Parks when we travel
My dogs are not wimps, they love roughing it with me camping. We go walking (and Tracking) in the bush and sleep in the tent togetgher.
I love to take photographs of my 'Pride & Joys'. You can see these photographs of my dogs enjoying various of these activities throughout all of my websites. All photo's on this website are of dogs owned & / or bred by myself both past and present.
