MOST REPUTABLE MINIATURE SCHNAUZER BREEDER
When Quality Matters, Informed People Choose Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzers
What does it take to be a reputable, responsible and ethical Miniature Schnauzer Breeder?
WHO WE ARE
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!
If you care about the temperament, health, and integrity of the breed, not to mention great customer service, then Rebersteins is the best. I flew internationally to pick up my mini schnauzer in Miami. Dennis and Chip took care of all the paperwork required for international travel and drove me around the city to get approvals and supplies for the puppy before our flight back. My pup is strong and easily trained. He’s great with other dogs and children. I am very happy with him and look forward to getting another Reberstein mini schnauzer in the future. - 4/03/2019Susan J.

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 have been speaking with Dennis from Reberstein's Minature Schnauzers waiting on the next litter where I will be adopting a puppy shortly. He is a remarkable person who loves his breed enough to promote excellence and the very best for them and their owners. Dennis has generously shared his knowledge of the breed and has been very helpful informing me what to expect from mini schnauzer itself. He amazingly keeps in touch with those who have adopted from him by creating a Facebook page that allows owners to share pictures and stories with new and previous owners! Dennis has become someone I hold with the utmost esteem and respect. Check out the website, you may just fall in love with a Reberstein's miniature schnauzer! - 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

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 �� - 2/14/2018Kim Shupe Chronister
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! - 5/21/2018Debbie Talley
Just picked up my second baby from Reberstein's in 4 months - She is just as darling as the other one picked up in September!!!! Reberstein Miniature Schnauzer's are truly AMAZING!!!!!! I have been a Miniature Schnauzer owner for 40 years and have never seen better bred Miniature Schnauzer's. Dennis and Chip are wonderful and gracious to work with!!!! Truly AMAZING!!! If you are a Miniature Schnauzer lover this is the breeder to go to. I have one female from them currently and a second will be picked up in early December. I will never buy a Miniature Schnauzer from anyone other than Reberstein's. - 12/09/2018

We picked up our FIRST Reberstein’s puppy back on March 9 and named her Roxy. Having been miniature schnauzer owners for over 13 years we have to say that we are impressed with the quality of our lil Roxy. We are so grateful we found Dennis and Chip, they both do such an excellent job trying to maintain the integrity of the miniature schnauzer breed that if are a serious lover of this breed I wouldn’t recommend any other breeder to go to. We have a perfect and happy puppy and our lives are full of joy with our sweet lil princess. Dennis and Chip we can’t thank you enough!!!! The BEST BREEDERS hands down!!! We definitely made the BEST choice and are now officially part of the Reberstein’s family forever.
Thank you Marlene & Barbara - 3/21/2019Charlotte Johnson
We have a beautiful black male miniature schnauzer puppy from Reberstein’s Miniature Schnauzers. He has brought us such joy since we picked him up in May! Dennis and Chip are the best when it comes to breeding quality pups. This comes through in the caring and research that Dennis does on keeping the breed standard. We feel very fortunate to have found them when searching for a miniature schnauzer breeder. They are the best and when you speak to them you know how proud they are of all their pups! - 7/23/2020

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

We just brought home a stunningly gorgeous black and silver mini schnauzer boy from Dennis and Chip. He is the most loving, well adjusted, intelligent little guy and we just adore him to pieces! We feel so blessed to have found Reberstein’s. Dennis and Chip are so deeply invested in their dogs and they continue to give us great information so that our puppy can lead a happy and healthy life! - 6/23/2019

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. - 6/04/2018Patti Cabrera
Reberstein's Minature Schnauzers is an excellent,conscientious breeder. Dennis and Chip take great care in maintaining the integrity of the Miniature Schnauzer breed. It is their goal to keep the Miniature Schnauzer the breed of dog it was originally intended to be. 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. My puppy is perfect and we couldn't be happier. - 9/13/2018

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

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
