We take immense pride in our stud service program. Not only have we been extremely selective in the studs that we have in our breeding program, but we have invested thousands of dollars into the necessary equipment required to make sure that we consistently obtain the highest possible conception rate in not just our females, but your females as well.

Duke's MacKenzie Jacobite

Red Miniature Schnauzer

MacKenzie is definitely a looker with perfect composition. This happy boy is a 16 lb red schnauzer with a 6/10 red intensity, a mega coat and two blue eyes. His color & puppies are highly sought after by those on my waitlist. He is AKC registered, DNA tested through Embark Health, and has had his eyes and heart certified as healthy through The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.

Specifics:

  • Genetic Color Traits: ee, KbKy, AtAt, DD, bb, SsP


  • Gentically clear, aside for having one single copy of IVDD. IVDD does not present in miniature schnauzers, and having one copy of the trait does not impact an animals life, nor does does it mean they will develop the disease.


  • Two chilled samples provided, shipping and transport fees included. Payment is due at time of reservation.

A Guide To Miniature Schnauzer Stud Service

How does stud service work?

You probably already know this but let’s start with the basic terms: a stud is a male dog used for breeding, while a dam is his female counterpart. Dog stud service is the process of breeding a stud and a dam in heat, and it also involves a written agreement between the owners of both dogs discussing the terms of breeding. Since stud service is provided by the stud’s owner, they are also the ones providing the stud service contract. 


Dog stud service can happen in two ways: naturally or through artificial insemination. Natural mating for miniature schnauzers is not a problem usually unless the stud is shorter than the dam in heat. However, typically breeders are not located within a few hours drive of each other which makes artificial insemination a wonderful option for diversifying your line. Distance is not a factor when breeding two dogs this way, so the owner of the dam can find a suitable stud for their female more easily. As the semen can be shipped all around the United States, this also allows to avoid inbreeding and add new bloodlines, ultimately making the breed healthier. 

How does artificial insemination work?

If you’re not an experienced breeder, you may wonder what exactly is the process of artificial insemination, so let’s start at the beginning. The first step is collecting semen from the stud, which should be stored in a refrigerator if not used within a day. Properly stored chilled semen can be shipped, and kept for up to ten days with our semen extender. 

Artificial insemination is always done by a licensed veterinarian or breeder. During the process the veterinarian or breeder inserts the semen of the stud in the uterus of the dam using a long tube. For the best possible results, a veterinarian should do blood tests on the dam and determine 2 or 3 days when the insemination should take place based on the progesterone level in her blood results. It is recommended that the blood tests are repeated every two days from the 7-8th day of the dam’s cycle, until it shows that the dog is fertile and ready for the insemination. 

Another option for experienced breeders with a stud onsite, is to carefully watch their dam in heat, the color of her bleeding, and her behavior. In a normal cycle, during the stage of estrus the bleeding with lighten to a salmon, or straw color and the dam will flag her tail, and be receptive to a stud by standing. Many breeders are able to determine when their female has entered this stage of their heat cycle by observing her bleeding, and if she would allow an intact male to mount her. 

Health screenings that studs need to pass.

It goes without saying that studs used for breeding must be in an excellent physical condition, so the breeder must have several health screenings and genetic tests done on their dog to prove that. Miniature schnauzer studs need to have a negative test for the following conditions:

Demyelinating polyneuropathy: This disease typically presents with regurgitation due to megaesophagus and aphonic bark. Megaesophagus is when the esophagus gets larger and loses its ability to move food into the stomach, and aphonic bark is the dog equivalent of losing your voice.

Myotonia congenita: This disease causes the muscle cells of an affected dog are over-excitable, which causes muscles to remain contracted rather than relaxing after voluntary activity. Signs of the disorder usually present when puppies begin to walk.

Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS): The muscle cells of an affected dog are over-excitable, which causes muscles to remain contracted rather than relaxing after voluntary activity. Signs of the disorder usually present when puppies begin to walk.

In Conclusion...

We felt this was an important next step to expand our mission: in addition to breeding the healthiest miniature schnauzers, we also want to help other ethical miniature schnauzer breeders achieve the same goal. That’s why we decided to select our strongest, healthiest and most beautiful studs who have passed all the necessary health screenings and genetic tests, and make their semen available for other responsible breeders. They are also regularly checked by our vet to make sure their health is impeccable at all times. The list of studs is not complete: we’ll keep updating it as soon as our perfect male reaches full maturity.

By shipping chilled semen we can now assist breeders all over the United States in adding new bloodlines to their breeding programs. Using our stud service, you can also have the semen of a stud with the desired characteristics, without having to purchase a stud of your own. If you’re not sure which one of our studs would complement your dam best, we can always give you expert advice. As long as you support ethical breeding, we will also support you!
