Video from the X litter, June 2017

This is a video that shows how so many families help us socialise our puppies and young dogs.
We are so grateful for all their help. 
14 minutes of fun pictures and video’s from the last few years, have fun 

Our philosophy:

We have a very thoughtful filosophy about breeding our Telgthoeve Riesenschnauzers p&s,

* On nr. 1 is HEALTH and broadening the gene pool.
Necessary in this is that you have several litters in a year, always with new males
with different and free bloodlines to our females. Only one litter per year has no use at all for the breed.
For us this means that we have to buy young males all over Europe
or have some males with us for a short time from cooperative breeders.
These males have to do all the health tests, all kinds of dog shows and we have them
evaluated by Breed specialists. When they are considered excellent we will use them on a few of our females. From this litters we always keep 1 or 2 female puppies for ourselves.
At the age of 6, 12 and 18 months they are having the same testing and showing as their parents.
If they are also excellent we will keep them for further breeding.

* On nr 2 is character and the right type of dog.
We love the old fashioned Giant Schnauzer p&s with the open, happy, funny,
intelligent, family-minded and stable character.
The Giant who will guard you at all times and who will be your best friend.
But also a very well balanced dog who has no nervousness! A self-assured dog!!
This character is also taken into consideration when we think about
which male to use on which female.
Telgthoeve Giant Schnauzers are real family dogs.

* And on nr 3: we also like to breed a beautiful, athletic dog who is a credit to the breed
When you look at Brian in the picture and you see the wonderful stretched front and hind leg….
We just enjoy it, this is the way athletic dogs should move.

And when you look at his two children in Pair Class:
Do you see the hind leg from Magnifying Meinou and the stretching front legs from both?
That is what we like to see.
This is why we spent all this time, energy and money!


Born on January 12, 2006
Peacefully died on November 21, 2018

November 21, 2018 we had to let go our Falkoen: the beautiful, amazing, vigilant, sweet macho,
the unconquerable and being deep in our heart, the unsurpassed Telgthoeve Patriarch.
He has not been seriously ill in his whole life of almost 13 years.
And was always happy and loved by anyone who saw him♥

“van de Telgthoeve” !!!!!

In the last 4 weeks he grew rapidly older and a bit weaker. The last few days he didn’t want to eat much
and on the last day he also didn’t want to drink anymore.
So we had to make the decision to help him over the Rainbow Bridge.
He let us know in a perfect way that it was time for him to leave us in this life ♥
He was put to sleep at our home in a peaceful and loving way.
And all our Telgthoeve dogs were there to say goodbye to him.

We are thankful for all he has given us to improve the Riesenschnauzer p&s,
and for all his children, grand- and great-grandchildren.
He will live forever through them ♥

For what reasons would you choose not just a Giant p/s but a Telgthoeve Giant Schnauzer pepper and salt?

Because they are extremely energetic and sportive, with an excellent muscular body. When they are mature they love to go on cycle rides with their owner also jogging, long walks and horse riding are among their favorite activities. Also they have a very stable and an impressive and loving character which can be seen in their intelligence, cheerfulness and affection. Sometimes they can become just a little stubborn. They are continuously seeking action to achieve their goals in obedience and also as a guard dog or even a hunter/tracker.

The males are mostly a bit dominant with a tough and fearless personality whereas the females are very friendly and feminine. Together they have a cheerful, lively and easy going character which is much appreciated. But most of all, a Telgthoeve Giant Schnauzer will always be there for you just as they have always been;
an “old fashioned farm dog” who will at al times protect you and your family.
