What does it take to be a reputable, responsible and ethical Miniature Schnauzer Breeder?


Miniature Schnauzer Breed Standard Icon For Reberstein's Miniature SchnauzersA reputable and responsible miniature schnauzer breeder will always strive to produce puppies that compliment the breed standard not contradict it.  A breeder who disregards the miniature schnauzer breed standard is a breeder to avoid and immediately cross off your list.


Responsible Breeders Do Not Breed A Miniature Schnauzer To Be Toy Or Teacup SizedResponsible and ethical miniature schnauzer breeders do NOT breed for toy or teacup sized miniature schnauzers.  The miniature schnauzer breed standard is very specific, and states that a well-bred miniature schnauzer MUST be 12″ to 14″ in height at the withers.


Responsible Breeders Perform CERF Exams On Their Miniature SchnauzerjpgReputable and responsible breeders will periodically have their breeding stock evaluated by a certified ACVO Ophthalmologist.  Responsible breeders do CERF exams on their miniature schnauzers to make sure we are not passing on hereditary diseases of the eye to the offspring.


Reputable Breeders Will Provide Happy and Healthy Homes For A Miniature SchnauzerReputable and responsible breeders are not in it for the money.  We are trying to advance the miniature schnauzer breed to be the very BEST breed of dog available.  We do this by breeding to the breed standard, and providing happy loving homes to our miniature schnauzers.


References Upon Request For The Miniature Schnauzer Puppy BuyerA good breeder will always have references upon request.  A reputable breeder will be more than happy to provide referrals from previous buyers.  Always ask the tough questions.  Have you had any health issues or behavioral problems from the puppy you adopted?


Miniature Schnauzer Reberstein's One O'Clock JumpReputable breeders are usually involved in showing their miniature schnauzers.  AKC Dog Show events enable responsible breeders to ensure that their miniature schnauzer breeding stock display the desired physical and behavioral traits desired for the breed.


Reberstein's Lifetime Health Guarantee LogoA reputable miniature schnauzer breeder will always provide a full Lifetime Health Guarantee covering genetic disease and temperament problems.  A reputable breeder will always stand behind the overall health of all adopted puppies and offer refunds when applicable.


three-miniature-schnauzer-puppies-in-old-suitcaseWhen you get a puppy from a reputable breeder, you should expect to pay a decent amount for that dog. Good breeders do not make a profit off of their litters.  There are a lot of costly expenses involved in properly raising a miniature schnauzer litter up until the day you adopt a puppy.



We offer our mentoring services to those individuals who desire to learn all aspects of the Miniature Schnauzer breed. Our services include: education on the breed standard, handling lessons, AKC show preparation, responsible breeding, and grooming instructions

 Producing AKC Champions Consistantly At Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzers 


Our Philosophy

Dennis Gorrebeeck and Jerry Simpson are the founders and owners of Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzers. Reberstein Miniature Schnauzers was founded in 1998 with one goal in mind.  Produce well-bred quality miniature schnauzers with exceptional temperaments.  The miniature schnauzer has always been at the forefront of our lives.  We have been  breeders and AKC show exhibitors of top quality miniature schnauzers since 1998.

Passion and dedication for the breed, sets us apart from your average breeder. These traits seem to be missing from many breeders of the miniature schnauzer.  We strictly adhere to the breed standard as outlined by the American Kennel Club and The American Miniature Schnauzer Club (AMSC). The breed standard is our blueprint for producing the finest miniature schnauzers in the world for either show, or family companions.

Reputable Miniature Schnauzer Breeders

The miniature schnauzer is one of the most popular breeds in the USA. This has attracted unethical and misleading breeders to the breed. These backyard breeders are creating their own unrecognized breed standards.  As a result, we have a tremendous amount of poorly bred miniature schnauzers.  If you are looking for a reputable miniature schnauzer breeder.  Please take this all important time to educate yourself about this breed before choosing your next miniature schnauzer puppy.

Many breeders will often claim to be responsible and ethical breeders. However, when you research their breeding practices and look at pictures of their adult breeding miniature schnauzers. These breeders have obviously chosen to completely disregard the breed standard. Any breeder who ignores the breed standard is compromising the gene pool and integrity of this breed.  Reputable and responsible breeders strive to produce puppies that compliment, not contradict the breed standard all together. Unfortunately, we have far more irresponsible breeders of the miniature schnauzer than responsible and reputable breeders in the United States.

Choose Your Breeder Carefully

At Reberstein’s  Miniature Schnauzers we only breed for quality puppies that conform to the breed standard.  Miniature Schnauzers that are deliberately bred not to conform to the breed standard are without question poorly bred, and  considered substandard.  Run don’t walk, when a breeder deliberately breeds for obvious flaws and characteristics not supported by the miniature schnauzer breed standard.  This type of breeder is trying to confuse and mislead the general public as to what a proper and well-bred miniature schnauzer actually is supposed to look like.  This kind of breeder does not deserve to carry the title of  “miniature schnauzer breeder.”

Once you compare Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzers to other breeders, I think you will find that we are the very best.


Our mission is very simple, precise, and goal motivated. Without goals your mission cannot be well defined, as well as being properly executed.

  • Reberstein’s would like to teach as many people as possible the miniature schnauzer breed standard as outlined by the American Kennel Club and The American Miniature Schnauzer Club (AMSC)
  • Mentoring is key in protecting and preserving the breed standard.  Passing on our skills and knowledge to enthusiastic miniature schnauzer lovers, will indeed preserve the breed as we know it today.
  • Raise healthy and well balanced puppies with exceptional temperaments that are unsurpassed.
  • Attend and participate in American Kennel Club sanctioned conformation dog shows to advance the miniature schnauzer breed in the United States.
  • Identify and expose backyard breeders of the miniature schnauzer so that the integrity of the gene pool can be strengthened.  Backyard breeders certainly do not have the best interest of the breed in mind.

And finally,  if we cannot accomplish these goals then we are doing great harm to the breed we profess to love, and it is time to stop breeding miniature schnauzers.  One must always have the best interest of the breed in mind to preserve the breed as we know it today!

    I own 3 miniature schnauzers and have raised seven! Your dogs are gorgeous and I wish that I could afford one. Please do not believe these strange people who write to the contrary. They don't know anything about schnauzers! Keep up the truth. I do not condone these toy dogs. They aren't up to the breed's standard!  - 2/14/2018

I will never buy a Miniature Schnauzer from anyone other than Reberstein's.  - 12/09/2018

    I have a Reberstein puppy that I got 3 months ago. I can't stress how happy I am with both my puppy as well as the breeders. Dennis and Chip love their dogs and puppies are born and raised in the breeders' home prior to going to their new homes. I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference this made, my little guy was already housebroken and very well socialized at just 12 weeks old! The support didn't stop after we picked up our puppy, they are very responsive to questions and know each one of the puppies, they truly care. I highly recommend them and won't hesitate to get another Reberstein, I'd have more if my husband would let me! The puppies are exceptional quality and I couldn't be happier. If you're considering a miniature schnauzer from Reberstein you won't be sorry!  - 5/21/2018

    My husband and I got a puppy four years ago from Dennis. He was so kind and professional, and kept us up to date as our puppy was progressing toward 12 weeks old, at which time we could take her home. The home environment at Reberstein’s was clean and orderly, with friendly adult dogs about. Clara, as we named our little girl, has a sweet and friendly disposition. We would definitely go back to Reberstein’s for another puppy, and have recommended them to others.  - 6/04/2018

    I have had miniature schnauzers most of my adult life. After losing a beloved pet, I didn’t think I could ever have another. My husband suggested I just look online. I came across Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzer. Since they lived nearby I could easily visit. As I sat on the couch looking at all these beautiful dogs, TJ (GRC CH Reberstein’s Time Jumper) jumper on my lap and looked intently in my eyes. That was it. These dogs are amazingly smart, very focused on humans. Loving and healthy. I purchased Benny. Dennis said, you have a really good dog, you should show him. It was an amazing experience, Benny was a Champion at seven months. Then a grand champion at fourteen. He is over half way to earning his Bronze status. So here I am four years later with three Reberstein’s. They are the healthiest dogs, no issues with skin rashes and I live in a Florida. I’ve made two life long friends in Chip and Dennis. Their dogs are the best. Few breeders usually sell the best dogs. All their dog are good.  - 5/21/2018

    I saw a couple of schnauzers on a Facebook page and they were absolutely stunning. I had to ask their owner what line they were from because there are so many poorly bred dogs that I wanted to thank this breeder for putting out such beautiful dogs. I also wanted to tell my breeder because I know she looks for quality, temperament and looks and this breeder has met all three. Turns out my breeder knows this breeder and turns out my girls are related down the line. I also want to make note that as a professional groomer myself many of the mini schnauzers we get in have terrible temperaments and many of my fellow groomers hate doing them for that reason. So Dennis PLEASE keep up the great work and passion. Cheers from Ontario Canada �  - 2/14/2018

    I spent a lot of time researching breeders of miniature schnauzers. When I called and spoke to Dennis he graciously spent time sharing his knowledge of the breed, it’s standard and what I was hoping for in a puppy. His stunning mini schnauzers are like none other. I’ve looked! I also find it outstanding that clients can share their pictures and stories of their puppy experiences on the Reberstein’s Facebook page creating such a fun community of fellow owners. Reberstein’s is a breeder of warmth, integrity and excellence!  - 5/21/2018

    My Reberstein puppy is perfect! He has an amazingly calm temperament, is intelligent, and looks fantastic. I could tell he had been raised with love and was socialized. I met both of his parents, plus some other adult dogs and all of them were so loving and gentle, and beautiful. Dennis was very accessible throughout to whole process and even now that I have my pup, continues to be a helpful resource. The passion for preserving the quality miniature schnauzer breed is evident.  - 5/21/2018

    Reberstein's Minature Schnauzers are bred to maintain the qualities the original breeders strived to develop so many years ago. They ensure their puppies are healthy and go to loving homes. I couldn't have been more blessed than to have my puppy from Reberstein's. Brinkley is all and more than I ever dreamed possible. Reberstein's knows what a real Miniature Schnauzer should be. Thank you so much for Brinkley. He has changed our lives completely.  - 5/21/2018

Their puppies are truly Miniature Schnauzers at their best.A puppy from Reberstein's is a true treasure. Reberstein's is what all breeders should strive to achieve.

    Very impressed with this breeder and his lines. I spoke to several breeders before making my final decision to purchase a Reberstein Schnauzer. I had the opportunity to meet with the breeder and all of his dogs . It was very apparent that not only were they well cared for but the love and commitment that they had for them is often not seen....they were treated as family members.

    I left knowing that I made the best choice and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new puppy ��  - 2/14/2018
