I am passionate about the Schnauzer breed, in particular with the White miniature schnauzer. The white is not at all common in South-Africa. And for this reason there are many people, other breeders included, that have the wrong perception about this beautiful ice-white double coat miniature schnauzer.

The White Miniature Schnauzer has similar characteristics and health risks as the Salt & Pepper, Solid Black, and Black & Silver Miniature Schnauzers. Their double coat also has minimal shedding and is also non-allergic, which is such an important attribute.

These Whites are NOT Albino’s as believed by some people. They consist of black pigmentation and therefor have dark eyes, brown or black nose, and black paw pads. Some of them also have black nails. They have the same genetics that make a White Poodle. If anyone needs more in-depth information about the origin of the White Miniature Schnauzer, they can contact me directly.

Miniature Schnauzers are easy to train. They love to play, and need space where they can burn energy. Very alert and will protect their family with their whole heart.
I work very closely with all my schnauzers on a daily basis. They are all seen as pets in my house and not as “breeding projects”. All of them receive much love and respect. Only the best groomers that understand the breed standard as set out by KUSA, groom puppies and the adults. I have selected the BEST Veterinary practices for their needs, where they receive only the best treatment.

1. "I was fortunate to acquire the first Miniature White Schnauzer sold by your Sherdenich kennel, he is Fritz von Sherdenich. The most unbelievable dog, 200% commitment, energy, intelligence and totally lovable. When receiving him he was well adjusted and trained quickly, a reflection of the environment he was raised in with care and love. He is truly a larger than life dog, thank you for entrusting me with such a magnificent white schnauzer."

2. "I had been in contact with several breeders, but Hanti from Sherdenich Kennels was the only one that made me feel like I would be adopting a pet rather than making a purchase. She was genuinely concerned about finding a suitable home for Dominich and I found her to be kind, accommodating, helpful, soft spoken, detailed and 100% honest.     
   I am a first-time pet parent and Hanti still patiently supports, guides and checks in on us. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a White Miniature Schnauzer. My little prince definitely does the breed justice!"

3. "What a blessing to our family Heinrich is! Since the first day we got him it has been a journey. He is a wonderful boy that would do his best to please you . He loves to run and play ball. He also loves dancing on his back feet to get his mommie's attention. One of his favourites is to hop in the car with mommy to pick up the kids. He loves playing with his 2 legged brother and sister. What an incredible and amazing boy."
