​Welcome to CoolHand Ranch


Our goal is to preserve the standard of the Giant Schnauzer breed ,and enhance the characteristics which we have come to love in them. To accomplish this, we look for dogs which meet the breed standard as defined by the AKC. Most importantly, we look for stable temperament, personality and intelligence in selecting and breeding our dogs.


Some qualities of the Giant Schnauzer we find most appealing are:

  • Their intelligence and Instinctive guarding abilities

  • Absolute love and devotion to their families, always aiming to please


They are well suited to confirmation showing, obedience, agility, and carting. Their versatility makes them desirable pets.
