Potomac Valley Standard Schnauzer Club

The Standard Schnauzer is a robust, heavy-set dog, sturdily built, with a dense harsh no-shed coat. A medium-sized dog, he is knee high and 35 to 45 pounds. The Standard Schnauzer combines a spirited temperament with extreme reliability. Excellent with children and friends, he is still the guardian of his home and family.

The club was founded 50 years ago as the AKC-sanctioned local specialty club for the greater Washington DC area and follow the code of ethics linked to the first paragraph of our Breeders page. The PVSSC is one of the breed’s largest and most active specialty organizations. In the past 50 years members have finished over 1000 AKC Champions and many obedience and performance titlists.

General Meeting after PVSSC Specialty

Sunday, Nov. 6

Time: After Specialty judging in Ring 10. Sweepstakes judging begins at 9:15 with regular classes at 9:45.  We will probably be done about 1130. The meeting will follow.

Place: Speciality is being held at the Meadow Event Park, Doswell, Virginia. The meeting will probably  be outside (perhaps near Georgia Sabean’s RV, but will be announced at the show.) It’s supposed to be a beautiful day!  Bring chairs.

Don’t forget the time change! – we go back to Standard Time overnight from the 5th to the 6th.

For details about the Speciality, see left column towards the bottom.
