Knotty Oaks Ranch (KOR) is family owned with over 30 years experience and concentrates on QUALITY, not quantity! At Knotty Oaks, the puppies are raised underfoot and as part of the family.  All babies are well socialized and go through several different stimulations preparing them for their new home.


We implement the Volhard Dog Training method. We firmly believe that early neuro stimulation helps in the development of well-rounded pups that will turn into valuable, trusted, and well-adjusted family members.


All of our babies come with the following:

  • Toys (Squeaky Lamb & Teether)

  • Small bag of food 

  • Treat Samples 

  • Up-to-date on shots

  • Parasite free 

  • Crate

  • Blanket

  • Car Seat

  • Microchipped ISO

  • Limited AKC registration

  • 30-Day Prepaid Health Insurance 

  • Lifetime guidance and assistance

  • 5-Year Health guarantee

  • Volhard Puppy Aptitude and P.A.W.S. Testing completed at 49 days old


We are confident in our program and the HEALTH of our babies, that we offer a 5-year written Health Guarantee.  This covers the puppy against any life-threatening genetic defects. 


We are also known for our COMMITMENT!  We take great pride in our babies and their happiness. We make sure they are eating a 5-star food, receive all the age-appropriate vaccines   (including Bordetella), introduced to crate training, as well as, early potty training.  We are available to you and your new baby for the life of the baby, not just until you leave our home!


If you need references, not a problem - we have many of our clientele who have purchased one or more of our babies that are eager to talk to you about their experience. Please also see our testimonial page for a quick reference.

It’s the Most Popular of the Schnauzers

Of the three different schnauzers recognized by the American Kennel Club, the mini is the most popular. There are a number of reasons for this, but it usually comes down to the fact that miniature animals maintain that ‘puppy’ look and feel for their entire lives, and people just love that aspect of any cute dog

They Like Long Walks

You might see it on a dating profile, but no one really cares if men or women like long walks (on the beach). This particular dog breed, however, loves a long walk. This dog will walk all day long if you let it. It’s not an overly active dog as far as exercise is concerned, but it’s not going to turn down a nice long walk with its favorite humans. Call it curiosity and an interest in the real world, but this breed is one that will consider long walks a big perk to being part of a family

They’re Not Size Oriented

The good news about this breed for many homeowners is the fact that they don’t care how much space and size you have at home. They are happy to be with people and they just don’t care if they are with people in a ton of space or next to no space. They just want you there with them, and they are fairly unapologetic about it. Your dog will get on just fine in a small apartment just as well as it will in a huge home with a big yard in which it can run around as often as it would like. It’s not a particular dog. You can have a dog like this without worrying about behavior issues if you are in a big home or a small one, somewhere with a yard or somewhere without. City or small town, this is a breed that doesn’t care as long as it is with you.​

They’re Healthy

Like any other animal in the world, the mini schnauzer is one that does very well as far as health is concerned. They’re not overly sick animals that are prone to breed specific diseases. However, like all other animals, there is always a chance your dog will become sick or diagnosed with some sort of disease that you might not want to see it suffer from. However, that’s just a chance you take with any animal. The lack of breed specific diseases associated with the mini schnauzer just gives you an improved chance of having a healthy dog.

This is a Cheerful Breed

Most people love a cheerful dog. After all, most people choose to go with dogs over other animals because of their exuberance and excitement, particularly when it comes to seeing their family members. When this dog sees you for the first time during the day or after a day at the office, it’s going to show a cheerful side. It is a breed that is going to be very happy to see you, very happy to have you home and just happy in general. It’s a cheerful breed that is rarely in a mood otherwise.

They’re Great with Other Animals

One of the first questions many potential dog owners ask when they are looking into a new dog is whether or not the mini schnauzer is going to get along well with other animals. The answer is yes; this is a breed that does get along well with other animals. And, in fact, this is a breed that will make it friendly with cats and dogs alike. However, rodents and other small animals – even the household variety such as hamsters – might make this breed become a bit predatory. This means you should watch out for the dog if you have small animals such as this as pets. Kids, for example, love hamsters and other small rodents and this might become a conflict of interest for your family.
