Prospective Puppy Owner Questionnaire

We review all the answers to this survey in great detail. It is very important to assure us that a Standard Schnauzer is the correct dog for you. They are extremely energetic and are highly active. We breed very infrequently, and only when we have enough room to add a dog to our show/performance roster. We will post upcoming litters on our web site and to Facebook <http://www.facebook.com/WunderkindStandardSchnauzers>. To understand how a hobby breeder works, we encourage you to read the article Puppy Buyer Etiquette <http://rufflyspeaking.net/puppy-buyer-ettiquette>. Don't be a "Horace Green." We develop our waiting list from this questionnaire. Please contact us for additional information.

 
All Wunderkind Standard Schnauzers are sold as pet quality with LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION. This means pet quality puppies must be spayed or neutered and cannot be shown in Conformation. It also means any breeding from the animal cannot be registered with the AKC. *
We do not breed "just pets." Standard Schnauzers are a working breed and need to have a job to do. Owners must have an adequately fenced yard, provide plenty of daily exercise, and commit TIME to a training program for their Wunderkind puppy.

This question helps us to find the right puppy for you. For instance, a highly energetic, over enthusiastic puppy may not be the best match for a household with young children. Instead of names/ages, you may leave another type of description to assist us in finding just the right Wunderkind pup for you.
