Welcome

WESTBRIDGE was registered at the kennel club Sept 1981
 
 My first dog was a sable Rough Collie, Jason of Kentine, born 11/11/1973 followed a few years later with Ugonys Dream of Oliver, a great blue merle of the old Westcarrs breeding and my love affair with Blue merles.
 
 
I got my first Smooth collie in the early 80s from the Cotsbelle kennels of Betty Hodgets where I found them to be more fun than the Roughs. 
 
In the 90s I fell for the Schnauzers.
 
 
At Westbridge we pride ourselves on good temperaments of all our dogs, which is a vital part when looking for a pet that will fit into any life style. 
 
Victors are always welcome to meet all our dogs we don’t be leave in only showing you a few we are proud ourselves and are happy to show off all our dogs here by appointment only as we do have a busy life and need to make sure we have the time to show you around. 
 
We also like new puppy owner to visit as often as they like to see the new puppy before taking them home sometimes distance is a problem and I am happy to pick out a puppy from a litter for you which as worked for many new owners of a westbridge puppy. 
We are fully licensed with the local council, which means our kennels are up to date on standard of welfare, which is very important knowing where your new puppy is coming from. 
 
Please be aware when enquiring about a puppy that I will also be asking questions about yourself and your home life.
 
 
 
 
Please feel free to look around my pages and if you are interested in coming over and meeting the dogs please feel free to call or email me where I would be happy to talk and chat about the dogs which are a great passion for me

    We got our two stunning std schnauzers 4 years ago. We took Alan (from edie) and Maggie (Westbridge Indy Summer) we wanted dogs we could run with but who weren't too big.I am very proud to say that Alan (black) competed in the European canicross championships in Scotland in 2015. And this weekend he (and I) came 5th in the British championships in Thetford forest!! Andrew was awesome with advice and allowed us many many visits to see our babies. I totally love these guys!!!! At 14.4kg Alan was at least 6kg lighter than all the other dogs this weekend and still beat bigger dogs!!!!

    We bought Inka a Standard Schnauzer puppy from Westbridge just over 16mths ago, and for the past 12mths she has been very challenging in her behaviour. She was so full of spirit she constantly launched herself at us whilst we were relaxing on the sofa using us as springboards. She also snatched objects out of our hands, and grabbed at our clothing ripping them all in play. Also she was so demanding and rough it was difficult to play with her without sporting cut hands. She was just like an unruly teenager and I seriously doubted she was the right dog for us. But, now she is a different dog completely she has calmed down so much. She is much better behaved and wants to please us, coming back to us instead of running off to play with other dogs or worse still chasing the horses in the fields. She has learned "On trust" and "Shake a paw" She is now a pleasure to have, very loving and protective towards us. So if you are having a trying time with your unruly pup just be patient, I'm sure you will be rewarded and your pet will settle down given time.

    Otto Westbridge Songmaster is nearly Eight years old now, and my best friend. He has proved to be amazingly healthy, sturdy and the MOST intelligent companion. He has a wonderful sense of fun, and he is popular among the dog walkers we know. We are always complimented on how very handsome he is, and he knows it. Otto struts as only a Schnauzer knows how. Emile my son, is now 18 and he considers him to be his little brother, and Otto is very much our family. I've had a couple of serious operations, and each time when I come home Otto has been a watchful and protective assistant, he does little jobs around the house, collecting things we need. He loves to be taught new activities. I'm so fortunate to have Otto , and that he came from such a good home.

    Well Andrew I knew from the minute I spoke to you that we would get our standard Schnauzer from you . You are so helpful and have great knowledge about dogs . You made me laugh and I knew if I needed advice you would be there. Our little Griffon( now shortened to GRIFF !! ) is doing well he loves people , kids , other dogs but birds have a good chase !!!! He is such a fab dog with such spirit and personality , in training classes he is doing well , the trainer said he has no fear and is very spirited !!! Whatever size dog he meets big , huge or small he loves to try to play . Food is one of his big loves as well as chinese plastic containers to chew !!!!! The odd cardboard box goes down well also . You are always very prompt with your replies to the emails and pics came every week of the pups as we live 5 hrs away . We were very impressed with the whole set up you have , you can tell you love the animals and look for the best matched home for each one . When we are up your way we will bring him to see you , thank you for our lovely Griff the kids love him as we do too . Xx🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

    Hi Andrew, huge big thank you for finding us our beautiful baby Jasper, the fluffy white miniature schnauzer (that's him in the profile pic). You picked him for us taking into account my allergies (asthmatic) and we are super super grateful 😊 He is a fabulous choice for our family, could not imagine life without him and although he is spoilt rotten, he remains a wonderfully loyal well behaved pooch. I am certain we will be back in touch when the time is right to add a new addition to our family 🐶😊

    Hi Andrew, Our beautiful schnauzer Tripp is 11 months old now .His Mum was Hilda. He is a lovely dog who has a loving personality. Well chosen by you Andrew. He fitted into family life from the day we brought him home and we all love him very much. He enjoys long walks, loves running with other dogs and is a good guard dog if anyone walks past our house! We are thinking of getting a companion for him! Thank You for your choice.

    Yes had her sister visit just before we moved and they took a miniature schnauzer puppy as a friend Hi, Gracie Lou is now nearly 5 and a beautiful Tibza. We love her dearly and she is enjoying "beach" life in sunny Dorset. I don't suppose you remember us but we have fond memories of you and meeting Gracie Lou for the first time. Thank you for the pleasure.
