Darksprite is a small show kennel based in  North Yorkshire. We have owned miniature schnauzers since 1997 and have been showing since 2001. We are members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme. We also run the Northern Schnauzer Club shop and have been members of the NSC for 15 years and Judith has previously served on the committee of the Club.

We aim to breed healthy, well  socialised miniature schnauzers who conform to the UK Kennel Club breed standard. All of our dogs are BVA/KC eye-tested and live with us as part of the family. They have all gained or are working towards their Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards.

Puppies are occasionally available to  loving homes. Our puppies are KC registered (endorsed against breeding and export) and come with a 4 generation pedigree. All puppies bred here will be wormed, microchipped and eye tested for cataracts before going to their new homes and full lifetime support and advice will be given to new owners.
