Standard Schnauzers are not always easy to find since they are not bred in great numbers. The best place to find a Standard Schnauzer puppy is from a breeder who is a member of the Standard Schnauzer Club of America (SSCA). The SSCA ethical breeder does not breed merely to sell dogs, but to continue to improve upon a lineage that he/she considers to be the best. Buying from a breeder will involve a process of matching a puppy and buyer and development of a partnership between breeder and buyer to ensure the lifelong well-being of the puppy. However, the purchase of a puppy also involves a business transaction. Prospective owners of a puppy should have written contracts/agreements regarding (1) deposits for puppies, (2) the terms of sale, (3) any guarantees and/or replacement, and (4) terms of co-ownership (if appropriate).
