Breeders Directory

Be An Informed Puppy Buyer!!!
 

The Giant Schnauzer Club of America (GSCA) maintains this directory of people who are active in breeding Giant Schnauzers. The GSCA provides this list of breeders as a service to the general public. These breeders (members) are in good standing with the Giant Schnauzer Club of America and have paid a fee to be listed on this website. Under no circumstances does the GSCA guarantee the services of said member(s) or assume any responsibility or liability regarding any agreements you may enter in with any of the breeders listed. The information listed has been provided to GSCA directly by the breeder. If an assertion has been made regarding health testing and it is later deemed to be untrue, this will be grounds for removal from this list and possible further disciplinary action as allowed by the Constitution and By-Laws. The GSCA does not endorse any kennel listed on these pages.

The GSCA Board is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications from Giant Schnauzer breeders that wish to be listed on the GSCA website. Please note that the Breeder Directory service is available only to GSCA members who maintain active membership status, have been members for a minimum of four (4) consecutive years, and have completed the BREEDERS LISTING APPLICATION & QUESTIONNAIRE found here. This revamped breeder’s questionnaire was developed based on input from past and present GSCA Board Members and reviews of questionnaires used by other breed clubs.

If you wish to be included on the Breeders Directory please complete the application and questionnaire and submit them to the GSCA Secretary for review and consideration by the GSCA Officers and Board of Directors. Cost for listing is $35.00, payable to the GSCA, and due with submittal of a completed Breeder Listing Application and New Applicant Questionnaire. The GSCA reserves the right to refuse an application and/or remove a listing at any time without explanation.

The GSCA has a Code of Ethics that suggests that all breeders try to always conserve and improve the quality of the breed.
 

The GSCA supports the Canine Health Foundation’s “CHIC” (Canine Health Information Center) program, which currently recommends three specific disease screenings (hips, thyroid and eyes) to be performed on all Giants to be bred.
