Hi Jeryl!

We celebrated Archie’s 1st birthday on Wednesday and wanted to share a picture. He’s been the best addition to our family and we can’t thank you enough!

Hope all is well with you! We are still hoping to add another puppy in the future!

-Nick & Marcela–Hainsville, IL


Hi Jeryl,
Thought you would like to see what a beautiful girl Lily is. She was at the vet last week and weighed 8 lbs 6 oz. Almost potty trained. The vet said she is truly an extrovert-  she loves everyone she meets.

We love her!  Thank you for bringing her into our lives.

Lily is a doll!  She loves people – everyone she meets is a friend.  She loves her crate- has only gotten up once at night to go potty. Making progress with potty training. We realize we are really in training too figuring out her patterns and timing.  We were amazed that she mastered bring back a toy!  

Thank you for raising a wonderful, loving puppy.

Dee–Brookfield, WI

Hi Jeryl,

Thank you for the follow up email.

We absolutely love our new fur member of our family – Mia.  The kids are excited to see her every morning when they wake up and after school.

Mia received a healthy report from the veterinarian.  She also is sleeping thru the night and has already broken the squeaker in the chicken toy.

Mia is a great joy to have (even with the play bites at times!).  Thank you for raising such beautiful & healthy puppies!  It was very nice meeting you and thank you for taking the extra time to reply to my son’s email questions.

Take care!

Denise -Appleton, WI



Just a quick update on the puppy we picked up last September.  We named him Bentley!  He has passed all of his physicals with flying colors!  He is officially 12 pounds of energy, curiosity, and overflowing love and affection!  Bentley is very protective of his yard and neighborhood.  Every week he gets to play with his BIG cousin – a 96 pound black Doberman named Lucy.  Lucy is very gentle with him as they play and tussle.  Bentley also plays with his human boy cousins – ages almost 3 and almost 8. 

To say we have unconditional love for Bentley is an understatement!  I am including a picture of Bentley from this winter – loves to “snowplow.”

Peacefully, simply, together,

Karen & DoyleCoralville

Just a note to tell how much we love our Katie Jane!! She has learned to fetch & bring the toy back to you. Also knows “Here Katie” she comes running. She is teething now so likes to bite hopefully that doesn’t last to much longer. She still has naps throughout the day & now sleeps thru the nite. She was just what we needed at a time when we had lost our Paco John!

Thank you! Lana & Gary-Tipton



We just made it home. It was wonderful meeting you as well. Within 10 minutes of leaving you, we already had picked a name!  It is officially Axel Harley or Ax for short. We will certainly keep in touch with you and thank you so much for the wonderful puppy buying experience. Richard  –Chicago, IL

Hi Jeryl, Radar is doing great here in his new home.  Our 8 month old dog Beatrice (also a mini schnauzer) is so excited to always have someone to play with now!  2 puppies that are total BFFs.  Below is a pic of the 2 of them. We had such a great experience with you, thank you so much for all the work you put into taking care of Radar, he’s the perfect little guy. Hope you’re doing well with the next batch of puppies!  I’ll keep in touch

Jenny–Algonquin, IL

Just wanted to give you a quick update! Milo is doing great! He got an excellent health rating from our vet! He’s been adjusting great to his new home! Our older dog has been overall very good with him (some minor issues) but they can be worked out! Thanks again for everything!

Didi–Omaha, NE

Hi Jeryl,

I just wanted to say Hi and send you some pics of our little Gertie!!  We are having so much fun with her!!  She really is a cuddler, which is so nice because our labrador doesn’t like to cuddle too much.  It’s funny because Gertie will let you know when she doesn’t feel like cuddling anymore, but when she wants to cuddle it is adorable!! I just can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of her and letting us add her to our family.  She’s teething now, but it’s not horrible.  As the weeks go on, and we’ve been re-directing her chewing she really only teeths on her toys.  Potty training and crate training is going really well too!!  She’s basically potty trained and crate trained!  She may have an accident here or there, but she’s been very consistent!! She rarely has any accidents in her crate.  I just wanted to write and keep you updated, because we really love her!!  I hope you are staying warm in Iowa!  This winter really has not been too bad.  It’s been very nice considering we are potty training a puppy too, I will take it.  ?  I’ll be sure to send you pics as she gets bigger.  She really has grown!!  I can’t wait until the spring/summer when everything will be in bloom, and bees will be buzzing and everything will be new for her to see, and investigate, and explore!! 

Have a good rest of your day, God bless Jeryl!!                                      

Love always,

Kelly  family–LaGrange Park, IL  

Hello Jeryl,
We wanted to drop you a line and say hello!  Pepper is doing fabulous, five months now!  Just the sweetest little thing.  When she was at the vet a couple weeks ago, our vet said over and over what a nice demeanor she has.  I couldn’t agree more!  I was looking back at the pictures of her parents Jasper and Koalie.  She has the markings of her dad and the darkness of her mom, a recipe of cuteness! ?
Hope you are having a terrific summer.

Jennifer –Jordan, MN

Hi Jeryl, We can hardly believe Maggie is two years old today! She is ten pounds, smaller than our other Schnauzers by around half. Full of energy and has very pretty markings. We met another nice male from your farm, Dexter, with similar colors as Maggie two weeks ago in our neighborhood. Dexter is a little younger at 1-1/2 and a larger dog too. Nice temperament.Hope you are doing well.Pat and John –Marion

Rascal”, is doing terrific.He Slept 6 1/2 hours last night.  He follows me everywhere.  Loves to be held.  He is my dream come true!          JeanniePS.  Give my name and phone number to anyone,a if you ever desire a

When I asked permission to put her letter, she added this……

Yes, of course.

And add any of this if you like….He is either bouncing around happy or sound asleep….not much else in-between.    No accidents yet, and he loves snuggling in my arms. I gave him a haircut in my lap last night, and he fell asleep during it.  It didn’t bother him in the least. He is a dream come true.

Jeannie–Plymouth, MN

Jeryl.  Hope your 2019 is off to a good start.  Our best friend Gidget has refused to go outside in these frigid record setting temperatures so we finally got her some walking boots and a sweater.  She was thrilled and has been running around outside today like it was summer!!! She continues to be the best dog ever !!!Be goodBestFrank–Edina, MN

Her and our other dog Gemma are the best of friends and my daughter LOVES her!! We go next week for her last set of shots! She is growing like a weed! None of us can believe how big she is getting! She will be bigger than our Gemma at this rate! Which is just fine with us! Thank you so much for our Claire!

Sarah-Tripoli, IA

Hi Jeryl,Thought you would enjoy seeing this photo taken after a grooming today. She is doing well, weighs around ten pounds and very smart. Taking a road trip tomorrow to visit friends and some family in northern Wisconsin. Maggie will come along and is a good traveler. Hope you are well and having a good summer.

PatMarion, IA

Hi Jeryl—hope summer has been good to you so far.  It has been so much fun having our puppy this summer.  Can you believe Windsor will be 6 months old on Aug 2nd already?!  He is the cutest dog I have ever had and he is so lovable and smart.  We went to puppy kindergarten for 6 weeks and will be doing it again in the fall.  We both had fun with that. Enjoy the pictures of my sweet boy. He is so cute!!—Jo Ellen

Lewistown, IL

This picture of Windsor was taken right after he got back from the groomers. He is so handsome.

Windsor loves to pose for pictures. What a cute boy!!

Look how adorable my fur baby is.  We just love him so much!!

Hi Jeryl:  Just want to let you know our Taya Jo turned 3 today.She is doing great & is one spoiled schnauzer. She goes everywhere with us & still loves to go camping. We enjoy her so much & are happy she is part of our family. Best of luck with your puppies & thanks again for letting us have Taya.Roger – Janet – Taya JoBelle Plaine, Ia

Hi Jeryl—Windsor is adjusting so well already.  He is so friendly and lovable. He checked out our whole house like he had already been living here. He sure loves his food.  A really good eater. Loves playing with his new toys.  His favorite place so far is snuggled up on my lap sleeping. Which is what he is doing right now.  We just love him so much!  I will keep in touch and send pictures of him. He will have a great life with us.—Jo Ellen–Lewistown, IL

Hello & Happy Sunday-We’s officially had Kong with us for 1 week already!! Just wanted to thank you again for being such a great breeder and for raising such good pups. We are so happy with Kong, he’s such a great puppy!! He’s just the right mix of playful and calm (he still likes his naps). We have him scheduled for his first vet appointment this week and we are also starting a puppy kindergarten training class with him this week as well.I hope all is well with you, we are looking forward to some warmer temps up here this week! Take Care-Abby–LeCenter, MN

Rocket is now 14 weeks and 8lbs and is a healthy good puppy! Everyone who meets him loves him and he has a very good temperament. I wanted to send you these photos. Hope you enjoy the holiday season. Fondly, Kate—Eagan, MN

I still am so thankful every day that I found you! We love our little Frankie. He has the softest coat, he is so spunky and loving. Every day is an adventure with him. We wake up to kisses and ear washings, lol. I will always refer people to you, you’ve been wonderful to us, I like that we can keep in contact. That’s it, thanks again.


Just a note to let you know how much we love & enjoy our little MiniMac girls. Sadie has done remarkably well with Sophie. Sophie is growing like a weed and now weighs 10 lb. Not a day goes by that I don’t find myself laughing watching the two of them. Thank you for
enriching our lives with your two little MiinMacs. If we had a larger yard & I were a little younger I would fill our home with more of your little girls. I hope Madison & Destiny are doing well.Janie–Burlington, IA

Hi, It’s birthday time for our little girl again. At 2yr. she is still
queen of the house. Chases squirrels off the porch every day, runs with
her friend Ready in the prairie, and loves her mom and dad as much as

we love her. Life in the country is GOOD!!!

Richard /Colleen –Ridgeway, WI
Thanks for this wonderful dog!

We have named her Bailey.  It was the first name on a list of names that both our boys agreed on.  She is doing great!   We took her to our vet yesterday and he thought she looked great!  We have introduced her to the other dogs in the family and things are going well.  We are pretty protective of her right now since she is so little and our other two Schnauzers like to rough house.  However, she really wants to be able to get in there and play. So far she is also the best dog I have ever had for housebreaking.  She doesn’t go in the house and I only need to take her out every couple of hours.  She even wakes me up at night when she needs to go.  I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak on the housebreaking.  It seems to be going too well.  She weighed 7 pounds.  I am hoping that is a good sign that she will get to 18-20 pounds or so.  Our two we have now are 20 and 26. We love her.  She has been on the go.  Already gone to one soccer game and soccer practice. Thanks for the sweet little girl that we got.

Meg–Glenwood, IA

Hi Jeryl,

Just wanted to share some pictures of Olive. She is 1 year old today. Olive is the sweetest!! I love her so much! Hope you are doing well. Thanks again for Olive!! Kathy –Waterloo, IA


I took Sasha to the vet yesterday. They all loved her there.  They said she looked great. She has been awesome with the potty training and sleeping through the night. I just love her!Thanks again,Deb, Eagen MN

Hi Jeryl.

I hope you are having a nice summer and trying to stay cool in this hot weather.  I wanted to send you a few pictures of Bessie.  I can’t believe she is 5 months already, we picked her up on April 24.  She is a great puppy and we love her dearly.  Our grown kids and grandkids adore her and she loves them too.  Of course, she wouldn’t be a puppy if she didn’t get into some mischief.  Ha ha.  She really is a good dog.  Our vet in Anamosa said she is “perfect.”  Feel free if you would like to use any of the photos on your website.

Thanks again for raising such great Schnauzer’s!

Rita–Marion, IA

We wanted to send you a message to let you know just how much we are enjoying our little girl, Phoebe Louise, and thank you for letting us adopt her! She is just perfect! I gave her a haircut and she looks so pretty! She is the love of our life! So precious to us! Thank you again!

Jody–Muscatine, IA

Jeryl, A couple of pics of Opal very near to her first birthday! As soon
as the weather gets a little warmer, she gets a haircut. She loves to
play with her three best friends in our praire, a Bouvier, and two
std. Poodles. We nick-named Opal “Peanut” as she is the little one of
the bunch, and instigates all forms of play. She also loves to chase
squirrels and rabbits. She is the BEST and we love her immensely.

Thanks for a wonderful pup.

Colleen& Richard– Ridgeway, WI

Hi Jeryl,
I wanted to let you know that we decided to name her Mona. We took her to the vet and she is as healthy as can be! Thank you for our perfect little girl, we love her to death!

Kat and Yongchan –  Nebraska

The little guy we picked up is doing great, by the way. He and his half-sister get along wonderfully!Jordan- Hoffman Estates, IL

Just a note to let you know our Taya is doing great. Growing like a weed. A little problem with potty training but getting better (maybe I am). She sleeps all night from day one which is great. She’s been camping once & will go again next week, did really well. We just love her so much & she keeps us busy, that’s good. Thank you so much, will let you know how we are doing later.
Janet- Belle Plaine, IA

Jeryl, thank you for blessing us with Oliver.  Your experience, knowledge, and answering of my questions are unending.  The way you run your breeding operation is exceptional, and after seeing the other puppies I could bring them home too.  Oliver has his own personality, which is so great and has slept all night, and also has only had one mishap, thanks to me for not getting him out soon enough. I would and have recommended you to my friends.  LOVE my minimac!!!! Thank you for the way you handled our “baby” and for letting us visit him at 4 weeks.

Sharon, Bob, and of course Oliver DK of minimac  Hampton, IL

Hi Jeryl, I wanted to share a cute story with you. I was shopping at Dillard’s in West Des Moines and I started talking to the guy at the register and we started talking about stocking stuffers. I told him all I had left was for my dogs. He mentioned that I might want to visit a kiosk where they make gourmet dog treats. I told him my dogs really didn’t like them.  He said his didn’t either. I asked him what kind of dog he had and he said a miniature schnauzer. I told him I had three. Then he told me he got them at minimac. I said. “So did I!!”  We laughed and shared pictures on our phones. I thought you would enjoy hearing this.
All my babies are doing well and give us so much joy every day. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.

Christina – Iowa

Hi Jeryl.  Hope this finds you well.   Thought you might enjoy this “fall” picture of Gidget in the garden.  She is now up to 9.5 pounds and is starting to lose her baby teeth.   She is absolutely running our house at this point. She is so fun and so sweet.  She could not be a better dog, companion, or friend.  She truly never leaves our side.  She is a great walker and happily walks 3 miles around a lake near our home most days.  She likes to play soccer too.  Everyone who meets Gidget just loves her.  She is truly one in a million and a blessing to our family. 
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to have her in our

Best wishes  to you and your family.
Frank – Edina, MN

Hello Jeryl. I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our little guy and how quickly he has become a part of our family. We decided to name him Cash (not Eddie as we had thought), and we are amazed at how smart he is, not to mention his sweet disposition. In just over a week he has figured out how to go up all 13 steps from the family room in the basement and also goes to the door when he needs to go potty. He has had only two accidents in the house. And the second one was on the rug by the door, which happened right after he whined to let me know he needed to go out. We went on a 7 hour road trip to St. Louis this weekend and he did great on both the car ride and the visit. Everyone thinks he is the cutest thing ever and has such a calm demeanor while still having just the right amount of energy and personality to make him a perfect little puppy!  I have been amazed at how easy of an adjustment it has been to add this little pup into our lives, because we all love puppies, but we know that they require a lot of work too.  he has been such an easy puppy to train and has adjusted so well to his new home! If you can’t tell yet, we love him! Thanks again for the type of business you run and all the updates you provide to families who are waiting to have the pup join them in their homes. We love our MiniMac!!!

Carlene–Waseca, MN

We feel blessed to be getting one of Jeryl’s puppies. It is a miracle that we got a puppy in the first place. All the puppies had been spoken for, but I sent an email anyway saying how sad we were that we missed out on a chance for a puppy from this litter. 30 minutes later, our dream came true, Jeryl called and one of the females was available again and we were next in line. Miracle!!Jeryl has done such a great job with updates, and weekly pictures of our puppy, Joee. Every time I email her, I hear back right away! Jeryl always seems as excited about us having this puppy as we are to get her. We made the five hour drive from Bloomington, MN to meet Joee when she was four weeks old. It was amazing! We also met Joee’s parents who are beautiful! This is a class operation and you can’t go wrong getting a mini schnauzer from minimacpup!Carrie, Carly and John
Bloomington, MN


I just wanted to let you know Emma’s doing great. She has such a fun personality and is really adjusting well. She’s great with new people and just cute as can be.



We are IN LOVE with this little girl.  She has been the sweetest little thing and Rylee is really warming up to her.  They have started to play and it is so much fun to watch.

I looked at  Rylee’s papers and her mama was Sadie and her daddy Simon.

Thank you soooo much!


Everything went good last night. [Mom] was very surprised to see how calm he was. She was worried about him last night, but she said when they got to the hotel he kind of played with Harley, but poor Harley was so jealous that his mommy was holding another puppy, he wanted nothing to do with the little puppy. So hopefully, he gets a little bit braver today and plays with him. But as far as everything else, I think everything went ok last night! Thanks again for everything!

Tricia – Virginia

Just wanted to let you know that you just sold the BEST dog ever! She is so good. I have been taking her to work and everyone loves her. She sleeps most of the day and is very good for me. The boys are getting used to her. They snap at her a little still but she is fearless and doesn’t seem bothered by them. She has been chasing them all over the yard. Tucker is taking to her faster than Malcolm but both are doing  better than I anticipated.  Her vet appointment went well. She was 3.9 lbs. Thanks for making such  good schnauzers. We sure do love them.

Christina – Iowa

We [made] it home fine. I forget that having a new puppy in the house is kind of like having a baby! We decided to name the puppy Gracie. She is doing great with the potty training! We are all enjoying her very much! Hope your fall continues to go well for you and your family and dogs & puppies.  Thanks again!

Molly – Nebraska

I can’t tell you how thrilled Mike and I are with Kodi. He is a true gem and sooooo smart!!! He has slept through the night in his crate without peeing!! He knows to go to the correct door to go out and he has mastered the 2 steps to the outside and the garage. He loves his toys and plays so well and has such a calm demeanor. We decided to wait until next week to start the basic training commands to give him a bit more time to grow and to get used to his new environment.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful pet.

Pat and Mike -Illinois

We just want to tell you how wonderful little Max is! In addition to being cute, sweet and incredibly mellow, he is a one of a kind pup, as far as we’re concerned.

We have had him two nights and he has slept through both, with nary a whimper nor a bed-wetting, and we have had only one very minor potty-related accident (which was Mama’s fault because I didn’t get him outside fast enough after breakfast! But a little poop in the laundry room does no harm¦).

Honestly, he is a great little guy and we are so glad we found you and Mini-Mac! I got him some good toys and chew bones, etc. and he works on those when he’s in his soft blanket-lined kennel. We use that only for bedtime or when we both have to be doing something other than keeping an eye on him.

Sascha, our standard, had her nose out of joint at first but has converted to a Big Sister to Max as of today. They have a ball chasing each other around the back yard (fenced in) and it’s good for both of them. Tonight they were romping in the living room with one of Max’s toys. He is fearless! He comes after her if she gives chase. Gutsy little guy.

He has brightened our lives. Today he came with us when we got our Christmas tree. I will make him his own little Max Christmas stocking and that will be one of many traditions he will become a part of.

Today I took him to our vet to have him checked out.  He was really impressed with his healthiness and said you clearly run a clean ship as a breeder because his vaccinations, etc. are up to date and he exhibited lots of other signs of good upbringing. We sang your praises.

Thanks so much for raising such a great little guy!!

Sherry, Tom, Sascha & Max-Iowa
