I grew up with Standards and Giants from Skansen Kennel, and currently have a 2 year old Giant from them...that's over 30 years of experience with Skansen bred Schnauzers. I remember fondly going to her ranch as a young child, and it hasn't changed a bit...it's puppy / dog heaven! The dogs are allowed to live outside to get plenty of exercise and fresh air.

ALL the dogs have been wonderful, excellent temperament and health! Sylvia breeds quality dogs that make excellent family pets! Her team is wonderful, and truly are interested in matching the dogs with the right situation. Laina is great and honest!

I will continue to return to Skansen as long as I can when I want to add to my family. The dogs are kind, smart, loyal and beautiful.

DO NOT BUY A PUPPY FROM SKANSEN KENNEL. I purchased 2 mini Schnauzers from Skansens, the first was 3 years old paid $800.00 the second was 4 months, paid $800.00. Both dogs were very sick. The Old Lady that owns the place gave me back the money for the 3 year old after I wrote her a letter saying the dog had to have 18 rotten teeth pulled and a number of other issues! But that was nothing, the puppy which I have had for just over a year has cost me over $6000.00! She stopped making tears at 6 months old, the Old Lady blew me off this time because she knew what it cost to take care of a sick dog. I had to have a tube from her saliva glands into her eyes so she didn't go blind and she will have to be medicated two to three times every day for the rest of her life. The Old Lady will take no responsiability for her bad breeding. Why she is still in business I'll never understand. I hope everyone reading this that cares about animals will pass on the word and put her out of business and save the lives of so many sick dogs. Two out of two isn't very good odds and speakes volumes about her breeding ability! TRUST ME WHEN I SAY SHE IS NOTHING BUT A PUPPY FARMER.
I have attached a photo of my puppy Diva when I brought her home and now. See for yourself!!!

I think anyone can have a bad "business deal" with a "business", and others may not have that same experience. And when you are dealing with Skansen- yes, it is a "business", and it is a "business deal"; however, that does NOT make her a "puppy farm". I have been a pet groomer for over 17 years and have groomed thousands of mini, standard, and giant schnauzers. I have not ever came accross a standard or giant with the dry eye condition (not to say it can't happen), but have seen many, many miniatures that have had the dry eye condition and a few who have even had the surgery to make use of a salivary gland for a lacrimal duct replacement. See, I am also a certified veterinary technican, so I know the condition well. The only breed we see more prevelant with this eye anomoly is Shih Tzus. The condition is not deemed as hereditary, but more conditional and when I say that it does not mean that Sylvia kept you rpup in conditions that caused this. Wind, dust, hair...environmental factors can cause this disease to set in. Many times groomers are blamed for it- letting hair get in the eyes, or a dryer pointed at the dogs face. It is understandable that you were/are upset, and you have the right as an American citizen to voice your opinion, but I think you have done that. And for every one person who has had a bad expereince with this kennel- there are 10-20 more that have had a very good experience. Enough said.
