Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers Once Again Focused

Knoxville TN – October 3, 2009 – Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers once again focused. A local dog breeder’s influence is felt around the world. While Marian Harding of Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers does not directly show her prize miniature schnauzers, her breed is always of interest to dog owners around the world.

Marian Harding and Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers always follow the results of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held in New York City each year. Beginning in 1877, “The World’s Greatest Dog Show” is now in its 133rd year. “The show is best known because of its worldwide telecast,” says Marian Harding. There is however one particular portion of the event that hits close to home for her. “They have, for many years promoted dog breeders such as Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers,” says Marian. At some point in every show they make a very special announcement. Viewers worldwide will always hear, “If you are planning to add a dog to your life and have come to look over the best of the best, please note, no dog you have seen here came from a pet shop, or was the ‘product’ of a puppy mill. If you want a dog, go to the people who care – the dedicated specialty breeders who have made dogs like those you see here a lifetime effort. Talk dogs with dog people who care and understand.” For Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers this type of support is greatly appreciated.

Miniature Schnauzers are a highly sought after breed. Demand has been so strong that there has been a specialized kennel club for more than seventy years. The American Miniature Schnauzer Club, a member club of the American Kennel Club, was founded in 1933. It has over 600 members residing in nearly all 50 states, and in Canada and other foreign countries. The AMSC is the parent organization for some 25 local Miniature Schnauzer Specialty Clubs in the United States. In addition to breeding, these dogs are fierce competitors in shows around the country, and the Westminster show is no exception. Competing in the Terrier breed class, audiences always enjoy watching these master show dogs strut their stuff.

Despite the breed’s popularity, many people are not familiar with where this breed originates from. The Miniature Schnauzer, cousin to the larger Standard Schnauzer, did not originate in England as many other terriers did, but in Germany, according to Marian Harding. They are small dogs but in no way are they delicate. They make an excellent companion because they are obedient, quick to learn, devoted to their owner, spunky and fearless. With the experiences gained since 1980 when Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers was established, Marian Harding is aware that this breed’s deepest need is to live as part of a family, going where they go and doing what they do. They don’t shed, but do need to be groomed every six weeks or so. They come in three colors: salt and pepper, black and silver, and solid black.

Every year you will see excellent representations of this breed in dog shows such as the Westminster Kennel Club show competing for the “Best Of Breed” category. Marian Harding is always focused and always interested. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers always benefit from shows like this. Located in east Tennessee, as one of only a handful of breeders in this part of the country, makes the kennel a destination point for dog lovers.
