Texas Giant Schnoodles

Next, we have Texas Giant Schnoodles, and it’s pretty clear as to which breed of Schnoodle they focus on. It does mean they breed the Giant Schnauzer with a Poodle, so if you are looking for a slightly larger dog, then this breeder is perfect.

This breeder is located in Dallas, and they did originally start off as a breeder for the Schnauzer before moving over into Schnoodles when they saw how popular they were. They produce a number of litters throughout the year, but they do tend to be of the giant variety.

One problem with them is that they are slow in updating their website. This includes letting you know about the puppies that are available. It means you are best to get in touch with them directly and ask which puppies are available.

Their puppies are all checked by a vet before they are available for adoption, and they will have received their different vaccines. You will also be made aware of any potential health issues that you should know about in advance of completing the adoption process.

Finally, we do recommend you make the effort to go and visit the breeder in person before you adopt a puppy. They are happy for you to do this, and it will mean you can see how well the dogs are cared for, and it will certainly make a difference in how you feel about this breeder.

Smeraglia’s Teddy Bear Schnoodles

Smeraglia’s Teddy Bear Schnoodles is not actually located in Texas., but are close by in Alabama. Depending on where you live in Texas, it could be a convenient drive to pick up your Schnoodle puppy. They also offer shipping options so it is pretty easy to get the dogs to Texas. This breeder only breeds Schnoodles and they offer every size imaginable as well as a variety of generations options.

This is not a small operation breeding operation at all. They have an office, a facility, and several breeding dogs.

These appointments are only made during office hours with the last appointment being made at 3 p.m. You also can’t come to visit on a weekend.

The first thing they ask you to do is research the breed and make sure it is the right one for your family. This is a sign that the breeder you are dealing with is reputable. In addition, they care more about finding the right family than making money.

There is an application process to adopt a Schnoodle puppy. Because they have waiting lists the website does encourage potential owners to start their process two to four months prior to when they want a puppy.

Nina’s Toy Schnoodles of Texas

First up, we have Nina’s Toy Schnoodles of Texas who is a relatively small breeder based in the State. The problem here is that they only work via Facebook, and also operate with word of mouth, so they do take some tracking down in order to find them.

But it will all be worth it in the end. As they are small, there are very limited numbers of litters throughout the year, but each dog is well cared for in the family home. Also, they keep each dog close to them, and they are certainly well looked after during the early weeks of their life.

They are also big on socialization in those early weeks, and that’s great news. It does mean you should then have a Schnoodle puppy that is able to get on with others as soon as you take them home.

You will need to reserve a puppy and be prepared for a bit of a wait. This is purely down to their size as a breeder, but please do not allow their size to actually work against them. They are a wonderful breeder that really does take the Schnoodle breed seriously.

Double D Kennels

Double D Kennels is another breeder based in Texas that produces some Schnoodle puppies throughout the year. This breeder is based in Bonham, Texas and while they also focus primarily on the Schnauzer, they do also offer Schnoodle puppies.

Unfortunately, there is relatively little information about the breeder, but what we do know is they follow all normal protocols when it comes to offering dogs up for adoption. That means each dog is vaccinated, checked by a vet, and is good to go.

As experienced breeders, it also means their dogs are well socialized, and it’s clear they have been correctly cared for before they are able to be sent to their new homes.

This does happen around eight to nine weeks after they are born, but be aware that you will need to contact them to reserve your spot.

Be aware that these puppies come with a health guarantee. However, you need to have them checked over by your own vet within two days of taking them home.

If you fail to do this, then the health guarantee no longer applies, and that is something to be mindful of.

Overall, they are a responsible breeder and one that will certainly be able to provide you with a wonderful Schnoodle puppy to take home.

And those are the three breeders that we could find in Texas that offer Schnoodle puppies to the public. There are some others just over the border in other States, but they would only apply if you lived close to them.

However, there are a number of things to think about before you go ahead and purchase a Schnoodle puppy from a breeder, and that’s what we will look at now.
