About our puppies
At Bent Birch Farm we take great pride in our Pepper & Salt Giant Schnauzers and strive to produce sound, healthy, and well socialized puppies. Our puppies are painstakingly home-raised and that takes a tremendous amount of time, effort and expense so we tend to have only one litter per year (or less). Our puppies are $3000 - $4000 and are generally ready for their new homes at 8 weeks of age (sometimes older if ears are done and may need more attention) and will have been or will have had:
Veterinary Health Certified (in writing)
AKC registration (limited/unlimited)
Five generation pedigree
*Ears cropped - optional and an *additional fee
Grooming lessons are unlimited and free, by appointment (on our premises or at a show)
Personal pick-up preferred but shipping is available at buyer’s expense
We do require a contract and it is to be signed prior to pick-up or shipping. Our ‘pet’ contracts require spaying or neutering and are provided a “limited” registration. Our ‘show’ prospect contracts do not require neutering of course, but generally do require a co-ownership stipulation. (We do occasionally place dogs/puppies in “foster" homes but that is usually females whereby they come back to us for showing/breeding at our expense.)
We stand behind all of our dogs and require our puppy/dog owners notify us immediately upon any problems or issues. A Bent Birch Farm puppy/dog is NEVER to be sold or transferred to anyone else without our knowledge.
