Giant Schnauzers

My Giant Schnauzer breeding started in 1968 when my first giant INT & Nord Ch Bisterskägg Berie got puppies. The base to later litters was however a wonderful bitch imported from Sweden INT & NORD CH FIN Working CH Kbsg Myrkarby Hilda. She inherited strongly both her beautiful exterior and powerful character. I have also imported other dogs from Europe. I’Erlo vom Krayenrain and I’Fisa vom Krayenrain we trained to achieve working champion titles, Beries Baukje v.d. Noorderenk from Holland and from Spain Mancha Magistral de Lordship’s. Unhappily none of these could be used in breeding because of diseases.

11998577_10200974446719272_1693723302_nOne hundred Beries Giants were born between 1968-1988 from a total of 14 litters. Of these dogs 35 percent became champions and most of them also  working champions.






Beries Frecki (1979-1993)

C.I.B. NORD CH, NORDW-81, -84, -86, W-84 Kbsg. FINN & SE Working CH Beries Frecki  showed clearly that a real giant is not only beautiful but also operational. She achieved the (BIS 1)Best in Show -title in the largest show in Finland in 1984 and the following year she won the gold medal in the Finnish working trials in tracking and finished the year with a bronze medal in the  Nordic Championships in Norway. Her offsprings also inherited her features and they competed several times in her breeding group with success.
Her wonderful character with strength, loyalty and integrity made her to become the deeply loved giant for the whole family.
