Why Cortaillod?

We are now breeding our eighth generation. This has enabled us to develop our knowledge of the major bloodlines in our breeding program. Cortaillod is permanently registered with the Canadian Kennel Club. We have shipped dogs to Brazil, Chile, Russia, Slovakia and the United States of America.

Location Our large, modern home is well suited for raising puppies. Our eleven acres have proper zoning and licensing. We are ideally situated within an hour of the Greater Toronto Area.

Guarantee Our thirty day full refund policy and two year genetic guarantee gives buyers protection in the event that they are not satisfied. An unhappy buyer means an unhappy puppy, which is better returned, for us to work with before placing elsewhere.

Quality Fifteen of our dogs have won awards at National and Regional Specialties in North America. We have twice won Best of Breed at Westminster and multiple Best in Shows in both Canada and the US. This assured those who want a companion puppy that comes from a quality breeding program.

Care We are both retired and are thus able to devote our efforts full time to raising puppies and providing them with the quality care and socialization so important to their development. Mary's nursing experience is an added bonus in our health care.

Reputation The honesty and fairness in which we deal with our clients provides many referrals. Many take a second dog from us later. Clive is well known as a dog writer and represented Dogs in Canada at the World Shows in Brussels and Puerto Rico. Our visits to major breeders in Europe and the USA have enhanced our knowledge.

Shipping Our dogs live in eight provinces, seven states, the Yukon, St Maarten, Brazil, Chile Russia and Slovakia. We are convenient for Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Client Service We provide some grooming and boarding services for our puppies. The small size of our operation ensures that they receive the individual attention your dog needs and deserves.

Dedication Our Standard Schnauzers and Norfolk Terriers are the prime focus of our lives. It is our dedication, which makes us the leaders in our field. We are founding members of the Standard Schnauzer Club of Canada and Clive was the founder of the Norfolk Terrier Club of Canada. He is the only Canadian Schnauzer breeder ever to be licensed by the CKC to judge the breed in conformation. He is well known throughout the world as a dog journalist and writes a monthly column for Dogs in Review magazine, Mission Viejo CA. For six years he was General Secretary of the World Dog Press Association based in Belgium and has attended major shows in many European Countries as well as Mexico and Puerto Rico.
