Giant Schnauzers Love Jones
I can’t say definitively that every dog breed loves Jones Natural Chews. Not until I’ve met each breed and offered them treats. Which is my ultimate goal in life. Seriously. But this weekend I met four Giant Schnauzers and offered them all Jones treats. I can now say that Giant Schnauzers love Jones Natural Chews. I have photographic proof. And I’ll tell you a little about the family which breeds these gentle giants while you’re here.
Last week I got a wild hair and googled Giant Schnauzers Oklahoma, just to see if there were any breeders in the state. Lo and behold, there’s a breeder twenty minutes from me! So I sent them an email and asked if I could come to their house and give their dogs treats, take a few photos. Well. That never goes over very well initially. Most people are more cautious than I am. But after a phone conversation, I was welcomed. And I met the very sweetest dogs you’d ever want to know. Say hello to a Giant Schnauzer.
What Treats Do They Like?
If I really had to guess based on these particular dogs, I’d say they’d devour any and every treat that Jones makes. They’re pretty sizeable at 80 to 90 pounds. The dad for Oklahoma Giants tells me that the dogs he breeds are working class. Show class dogs are larger. They seem to have strong jaws. But what did I actually give them? We began with each of them having a three inch Windee. One of the Windees was gone in about 30 seconds, but a couple last two or three minutes.
Then we moved to the front yard for the main attraction, our current giveaway, the Strap Stick. I had Large Strap Sticks with me, specifically for this breed. Take a look.
They took their time eating the beef ligament Strap Sticks. Probably four or five minutes each. A great chew for such a large dog. We definitely had a winner as far as the dogs were concerned.
I hear awful stories about backyard breeders, and once, about 20 years ago, I experienced one, but I have yet to come across any since I’ve been dog blogging, which has been the last five years. Oklahoma Giants is no exception to this. If I were actively searching for a large dog, I’d certainly consider buying a puppy from them. Except, y’all know I want a Great Pyrenees. I’d go back on that, though, for one of these puppies.
Oklahoma Giants are raised in the home with the family. I spent some time in the house with the family and dogs. They treat all of the dogs just like they treat their kids. Every member of the family, dogs and kids, seems to know their place, and it’s quite obvious they also know they’re well loved. The puppy raising area is just inside the front door. It’s clean and large. The house doesn’t smell. In fact, my own house smells much more like dogs than theirs. Clean, plenty of space for such large mammals. Not too many dogs – four breeders and a cute mutt.
Talking to them about their breeding practices, he knew an awful lot about the breed itself. And they don’t often breed the females. He seems to take a careful, measured approach to it, more for the joy of it than the money. The Giant Schnauzers seem to just be a good fit for their personalities, both individually and as a family. Very nice. I’d say if you’re looking for a Giant Schnauzer pup, give them a call and chat for a bit.
