Welcome to Darksprite! 

 is a small show kennel based in  North Yorkshire. We have owned miniature schnauzers since 1997 and affenpinschers since 2007. We started showing our miniature schnauzers in 2001, after several years of active involvement with the Northern Schnauzer Club. We currently run the Northern Schnauzer Club shop and Judith previously served on the committee of the Club.

We are members of the Assured Breeder Scheme run by the UK Kennel Club to promote responsible and caring breeding of healthy dogs.

Our aim is to breed healthy, well socialised dogs who conform to the UK Kennel Club breed standard. All of our dogs live with us as part of the family and all have gained or are working towards their Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards.

Puppies are occasionally available to permanent, 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, vet checked and microchipped before going to their new homes and the miniature schnauzer pups will be BVA/KC eye-tested for congenital hereditary cataracts. A comprehensive puppy pack is provided containing useful information on the breed, health, feeding, training and breed club membership. Full lifetime support and advice will be given to new owners.
