Standard Schnauzers are not always easy to find since they are not bred in great numbers.
The best place to find a Standard Schnauzer puppy is from a breeder who is a member of the
Standard Schnauzer Club of America (SSCA). The SSCA ethical breeder does not breed merely
to sell dogs, but to continue to improve upon a lineage that he/she considers to be the best.
Buying from a breeder will involve a process of matching of puppy and buyer and development
of a partnership between breeder and buyer to ensure the lifelong well-being of the puppy.
However, the purchase of a puppy also involves a business transaction. Prospective owners
of a puppy should have written contracts/agreements regarding (1) deposits for puppies,
(2) the terms of sale, (3) any guarantees and/or replacement, and (4) terms of co-ownership (if appropriate).

A good source of information when considering the addition of a new family member is the
AKC puppies page. Of special interest are the
Be a Responsible Dog Owner material, and also information regarding:
When buying a Standard Schnauzer, the buyer should receive the following at time of purchase:
- Sales Agreement signed by the "Seller" and the "Buyer" listing price and specific obligations
of both "Buyer" and "Seller", any conditions regarding return of puppy, if this becomes necessary,
and, as appropriate,
terms of (co-)ownership.
- Signed AKC Registration Application (or Registration Transfer).
- Complete health records, including vaccinations and instructions for future health care.
- Pedigree showing AKC registered names and numbers of parents and grandparents.
