Ewa has trained, shown and groomed Miniature Schnauzers since 2000. And for Ewa, her work is a labour of love, typified by her friendly, open approach.

Now first time owners, professional groomers and breeders alike can gain the benefit from her experience and expertise:

  • For the owner – learn invaluable tips about the general upkeep of Schnauzers and how to best take care of their coats.
  • For the professional groomer – perfect your skills in creating the unique Schnauzer look and learn how to hand strip to professional standards. This is a potentially profitable new service to offer, that’s also ideal for other harsh coated breeds.
  • For breeders – the perfect guide for your puppy buyer (with reduced rates when you buy in bulk).

Some FAQs

If you show the treats to get your dogs attention the dog soon learns that it is no use to come when you do not show the treats.

By laying a good foundation with Listening Exercise and then train Recalls by using your finish word (“OK”), your dog learns the recall signal very solidly and you will be able to trust your dog off the lead in most situations.

Absolutely not. Your dog is telling you that he/she has a need and urge to use his nose. He will do that regardless of if we provide him/her with the opportunity do so or not.

By providing your dog with the chance of doing so in a controlled environment, on your terms, you bond with your dog, your dogs urge for doing it by him-/herself lessens and he/she will become calmer and more content.

All puppies bite. It is absolutely natural and they will grow out of it. Make sure it  does not get a lot of attention for doing so.
