Litter Training

Each litter is sent off site for communal training for the duration of four days. Vivienne is the Trainer for these sessions. The puppies go outside on command for their potty chores. They are further trained to be quiet in their play pen; to learn more socialization skills; to keep on being respectful to each other and to humans and to play with a larger dog (Vivienne has a Coyote hybrid).

Yearly Diary Book, Volume 1

It has been a life long dream of mine to live on a farm and raise dogs and horses. Finally through many life’s hiccups I achieved my goal!

I also always wanted to write a book about my experiences with my doggies and horses as each day seemed to unfold such interesting consequences. In 2005 I met my husband, Gary, and with his financial assistance and his hard work, we imported our first Miniature Schnauzers from the United States.

Our original dogs that we imported were: Cash (retired at the farm); Jadie (rehomed); Southern Bell (rehomed); Adeeva (rehomed); and the 3-Pees-Radar, Baby Pee and Pearl (all rehomed).

Through the editing assistance of Robin and Anne, I am thrilled to offer my first Diary Book, Volume 1. It is a 200 glossy-page book with over 100 colour pictures reflecting life at our farm.  It is in a “coffee-table” format – 8 1/2″ x 11″. 

Thank you.

Alberta Island Miniature Schnauzers

Island Miniature Schnauzers is pleased to announce that we now have an office in Alberta.  

This new location will allow us to ship puppies from Alberta to numerous locations. We do not ship any puppies if there is a switch of planes.

Where applicable, any future postings will reflect the Alberta location of the puppies. Alberta puppies receive the same training, health guarantee, blood testing, vaccinations and the same love as do our Vancouver Island puppies.


All Miniature Schnauzers that are born at our farm are welcome back for boarding. We offer a pick up and delivery service in the Victoria and Saanich areas.

For our customers that live up the Island, we will meet you at Petsmart in Langford to pick up your beloved Miniature Schnauzer.

For our Mainland customers we offer pick up and delivery service at the Harbour Air Depot. Our prices are reflected below:

Boarding: $20.00 per day per dog – simply supply food – $25.00 per day if your puppy is over 7 months of age and is not altered.

Pick up Delivery: $50.00 for both our pick up and delivery service (Victoria and Saanich).  We offer this service from Monday through to Friday.  Please add $80.00 if we ship out your puppy/dog via Harbour Air.

For grooming, our styles are the following:  Traditional Miniature Schnauzer, Summer Breeze (1/4″ all over with a Schnauzer head) and Teddy Bear (1/2″ all over with a rounded head).  The grooming price is $60.00, taxes are extra.

All our Doggang members and our Boarders are off leashed on our 12 acre farm.



You will find that when you get your pup pup back from staying at our farm that he/she is more relaxed, obedient and well behaved. These positive attributes are gained by your pup pup joining up with our Inside Doggang and off leash romping up into our forest and playing in our forest pond.

Note:  All our Doggang members receive a monthly de-flea medication.




    Boarding Request Form



    If your dog is over 7 months of age and has not been altered, then we will charge you $30.00/day.

    November 2018 - Leptospirosis has turned up in Sooke, therefore this vaccination is mandatory before you bring your dog in for boarding. Please keep in mind that there is a booster for this vaccination, so you need 2 months to fulfill this vaccination prior to bringing your dog to the farm. Thank you, Beverley
