GIANTS of EASENTAIGH
In 1992 Classic Giants was founded and the
breeding program began with the German imported bloodlines of two

There are many anecdotes regarding animal breeding. How does one
understand what works, how to read a pedigree, who to breed to whom, who
is the ultimate judge, is the standard followed for the breed, is the
breeder improving the breed with the offspring. All of these statements
need to be combined to produce the better animal and be a successful
personal experience of breeding Morgan horses and dogs for 40 years has
always started with an excellent female line. A line of pedigree with
proven generations of qualities one wants to continue in the breeding
program. Combined with a male who also has a strong female line with the
desired traits produces the best genetic possibilities for the breeder.
Classic Giant Schnauzers follows this theory and the dogs are
exceptional specimens of the breed, not only in phenotype (what you see
- body structure, bone, coat, dark eye, large head, drive, confidence,
excellent temperament) but also in genotype (what you don't see - what
the individual will in turn give to their off-spring). Classic Giant
Schnauzers has now produced the
third generation in 2003 & 2004,
fourth generation 2009 & 2011 with the
continued addition of imported working dogs from Europe. This
breeding program is creating the highest quality of working Giant
Schnauzers available in the United States.
CH Classic von der Allenhof, CD, BH, V rated - purchased at 8 weeks from Jim and
Cornelia Allen with the qualities of excellence in both phenotype and
genotype for my female line. An Iro daughter and Atze grand-daughter on
her mother’s side, "Liebchen" is the founding bitch for the Classic
breeding program. Shown to her championship as a young dog, 'Liebchen'
was the first offspring of Iro von Sandokan, SchH III, IPO III to
achieve her AKC Championship title. We went on to compete for the BH
schutzhund obedience title (my first!) in 1997. Having gained some
confidence, we completed the AKC Companion Dog title in 3 consecutive
shows and were awarded High in Trial at the Giant Schnauzer Club of
America's Midwest Specialty Show.
