Before buying a Giant Schnauzer there are some
important links you may want to visit here on our site. Primarily, the
owner and dog bio pages are significant because you will learn about the
temperaments, trials and joys of living with a giant. Also read about
cropping versus leaving ears natural. The puppy pages exhibit puppies in
their terror getting into all sorts of trouble and that is worth at
least recalling before jumping in. There are hours of articles and
pictures to flip through.
If you want to learn about us, find out
what a Magna Giant Schnauzer is and what we are up to:

well started dog is the right choice instead of a puppy.
Tips for purchasing a giant schnauzer
WHAT IS A
CARE: OUR BEST ADVISE This is
the area I hope to get up and running for you because it will be the
most helpful of all the information I offer. Check back and
suggestions are welcome.
To Crop, or Not To Crop... That's The Question! This link speaks to
the pros and cons of cropping or not cropping. It also includes
instruction on posting and taping of cropped and natural ears, though we
do need to add to this in the future as time allows. FYI... Only about
20% of Magna owners crop these days. It seems a kinder more humane
attitude as well as appreciation for the natural ear are now strongly in
vogue. If we have contributed to this end with our numerous natural
earred champion dogs and hundreds of pictures, we are proud of this
My Blogs- For your information.
A BREEDER'S JOURNAL
It's a Blog to offer insight for those interested
in what breeding Giant Schnauzers is all about.
IN MOTION- This is where I post things of giant schnauzer
activities. This is mostly pictures and is really fun. Notice our wild
child Sarah. Unbelievable!
MAGNA GIANTS EVERY
DAY- Here is where I post things I want to quickly update
you because updating the website is a bigger task and I do not do it
often. There are fun things there too. I think you are going to love the video of babies nursing and
one even being born backwards! Take a peek, but please remember to
come right back! This works better for me. Hope it makes sense and
works for you too.

MERCHANDISE Take a look at
our beautiful new items! And there is much more to come. Our

it. We want products that are of excellent quality, hold up, do the
job better and/or make your life easier.

MAGNA STORYBOOK PAGES
These are not (for the most part) just
pictures but stories and pictures that teach about the breed in a fun
way. Those that are new to the breed should visit these pages. Look
forward to new additions to storybooks.
WITH GIANT SCHNAUZER He has ears and a tail! (He could have been
hurt badly so I am pleased to say, he is not one of mine but very cool
none the less.)
DO GIANT SCHNAUZERS LIKE DOING AGILITY? I am often asked this
question and when I found this video clip I thought it spoke so clearly
I would let the dog answer that question. I do not know who the dog is,
but good job trainer!
DO GIANT SCHNAUZER LIKE WATER?
OTHER DOGGY LINKS
SALLIE MORRIS - Dr. Morris is a chiropractor, ear cropper,
a breeder herself, great vet but a dream as a "breeders vet," and a wonderful human being. She practices in Burtonsville, and Columbia, Maryland
and we consider her a part of our team. To be very honest- I am not sure
I would continue to breed if we didn't have Sallie. Many of our puppy
owners use her services too. She knows the breed, is an awesome vet and
she is straight with people and dogs. She is the absolutely the best!
- I love this! Pricey but very cool!
TRAVEL - If you think the way you transport your dog is good
enough, visit this site and read the German review (PDF file in
English.) The video is in German but is easy to figure out even without
DOG FOOD EVALUATION -
See how your dog food fairs. With all the tainted dog foods we are glad
to feed a raw diet but when that is not possible feeding the best we can
is of course our goal. This is a great site a very nice woman has worked
super hard to provide.
REALLY COOL SITES
FREECYCLE - Make your trash
someone's treasure. List it and they will come get. Want it? Let 'em
know. Someone will pass theirs on. Great concept! Keeps junk out of
landfills and you don't have to dump it or can get it for free! How cool
WILLIAMS SONOMA - Who needs cookbooks when you can search for
recipes that are this outstanding and so easy to reach? I love this
WORLD'S STRONGEST FATHER - by
Sports Illustrated writer Rick Rielly. A heart warming story you won't
want to miss. And don't overlook the video at the bottom of the page. If
you know a parent that can top this guy, I want to know about it!
Video clips are my new obsession.
If you find any you like, send 'em to me please!
