In 1992 Classic Giants was founded and the breeding program began with the German imported bloodlines of two WSF Championship Team dogs :

CH Iro v. Sandokan SchH 3 IPO III

Int CAtze v. Altenhof SchH 3 IPO III

and a very impressive dog from Czechoslovakia, CH Cheeky Ladior SchH 3 IPO I

All of these working Giant Schnauzers represent the best imported dogs in the United States during the early 1990s. All OFA good, Clear thyroid, V rated in conformation and all champions in conformation.

   CH Iro v. Sandokan, SchH 3 IPO III imported and owned by Storm Bergin was multiple SchH 3, tracked often with 100 scores and always V rated in protection.

Int. CH Atze v. Altenhof, SchH 3, IPO III
owned by Jim Allen, highest scoring Giant in theUSA, multiple SchH 3, International Champion, V rated in protection.

CH Cheeky Ladior, SchH 3 IPO I owned by Kelly Fink-Pickarts. Imported from Czechoslovakia, multiple SchH3, always V rated in protection, excellent tracking dog.

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 breeder.

My 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.

Bred to top Schutzhund competitor,Czechoslovakian import CH Cheeky Ladior, SchH 3, IPO 1  this cross produced 2 litters - 1995 and 1997.  This Golden cross has produced excellent foundation brood stock who have proven their worth and who are now producing quality offspring:
