Woof woof and sloppy kisses from one of your lovely giants, Ella xxx

Hope all goes well for you in the future as it would be such a shame if a dedicated breeder such as yourself were to to give up.

Hi Brian & Jan. Thanks for the lovely message and good wishes. Fear not, we're not giving up ! Our new Kennel name, DARKMEISTER has now been approved by the Kennel Club, and everything good about and to do with PrimaVista will continue and remain strong, all be it under a new name.

Comment: Your breed notes made very interesting reading last week in Our Dogs. Alas, it seems the Giant Schnauzer breed will always be afflicted by a minority who are in it for purely selfish reasons and financial gain. Ever it was so. I wish you well in your campaign to clean up the breed, for as custodians, we owe these magnificent dogs so much more.

Comment: I have had dogs for over 30years. I was reading all I could find about Giant Schnauzers. I saw an article in a dog magazine.I am sure it was your dogs featured with photos of them playing on a beach.Instaed of a small puppy I rescued a 9 month giant who had not had a good start.Been together over 4 years now. A big dog with a big character and heart.He makes me laugh every day. It was very hard work at first but we both kept trying and now enjoy a good life together.I am so happy I met him.

Ed: Hi Val. Yes, that article featured our dogs. It was a thrill to see them in print ! Well done for taking on rescue at such an awkward age. Clearly your hard work has paid off. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a message!  Mike
