Hello, we are Lesley and Jim Parker from a small village near Drax in North Yorkshire. We own, show and only occasionally breed Giant Schnauzers. We have been members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme since 2007, and have passed a Kennel Club inspection under the UKAS accreditation rules and regulations. In 2016 we were awarded the Kennel Club Accolade of Excellence which is given exclusively to members of the Assured Breeder Scheme with a record of outstanding achievement in their breed. We are very proud to have been awarded the Accolade of Excellence.
Our first encounter with a Giant Schnauzer was in 2002 at the local training class we attended with 'Inka' our beloved spotty friend. A few years later after moving house and suffering a theft, we decided it was time for a larger more imposing dog and by coincidence we saw the same Giant again at our training class. After speaking to her owner and researching the breeds characteristics we decided a giant was the right dog for us, and very soon our first Giant 'Kaiser' arrived. A lovely couple we had come to know who owned and showed Miniature Schnauzers introduced us to the show scene, and much to our suprise it became an interest and hobby myself and Jim could share.As a child I knew I wanted to spend time with dogs (kennel maid, police dog handler, veterinary nurse etc)... but in the end I decided to devote 21 years of my life helping people instead and worked as a Registered General Nurse mostly in Accident and Emergency, until one day we were both involved in a serious accident ourselves, a wake up call!.....and now we have Giants....how funny a twist of fate has lead to my childhood dreams.
I think because of my medical background we are especially fanatical about the health of our Giants and their offspring. We have a modern approach to dogs and we embrace modern technology to assist in producing happy and healthy Giants to the best of our ability.
