Hi! My name is Carolyn, my husband Danny and I have raised schnauzers for over
20 years. We are located in the country in a small rural area of Sweetwater
Oklahoma. Where we raise cattle, farm, and of course raise schnauzers! We strive
to produce high quality, happy, healthy, and well socialized puppies .
Once you've owned a schnauzer thats it! YOUR HOOKED !!! Each one has his or
her own special and unique personality, there are no two alike! They will bring you
many hours of joy and laughter. They are loyal, loving, and eager to please. They
will be your loving companion and your best friend for life! BUT....... WATCH
OUT!........ For they will leave footprints on you heart........ !
Schnauzers are highly intelligent, and devoted to home and family. They have
great temperaments, and are fast learners. They are spirited, athletic, and are very
affectionate. Schnauzers, adapts easily to any environment, from living in an apartment,
or living on a farm .The schnauzers breed are one of the top choices for people, because
not only do they make a wonderful and loving pet, but are very alert and make great
guard dogs as well. They do not shed and are hypoallergenic, so they make great pets for
people with allergies! They are and amazing breed, and I can not imagine my life
without one !!!
As the story goes, our land has a hollow that runs down through it. Some of the old timers has told us that
Happy Hollow ( or Happy Holler as some called it ) used to be the old " camp meeting place ". I had no
idea what this meant, and I'm sure you don't either. Folks said back in the early 1900's, that people would
have community gatherings there. It was a place where they would gather, visit, and have church services
and sing happy songs of praises to the lord. The hollow would actually act like and amplifier and amplify
the sound of the singing. They would sing and be Happy !
So.......... The name, Happy Hollow Or Holler, was born because it was a place of HAPPINESS! All the
family's would pitch in and bring whatever food they had to share and enjoy and have a picnic under the
cool shade trees . I feel so privilege to have such a wonderful place on our land ! And I'm very thankful to
the people that told us this wonderful story, so we may also pass it down ! As you will notice we chose to use
holler for our site. All dogs like to give a holler when they are happy thus Happy Holler!
Welcome to Happy Holler Schnauzers ! This is our nursery. These little darlings have graduated up to pet
beds.They first start out in nursing pens with mom. Then they move up to nursing boxes, of coarse also still
with mom. At 4- weeks the boxes are removed and they share the whole pen and runs still with mom. Even
at 4- weeks they quickly learn how to go in and out the doggie doors. By 5- weeks they are running in and
out lickety split.... this is where they graduate up to pet beds. Then by 5- weeks they think they are as big as
the adults! Even the tiniest T-Cup is going in and out the pet doors. Schnauzers are highly intelligent they
learn very quickly. With a little time, love, and patience, there is nothing that they can't learn and accomplish.
This is the laundry room in our Kennel. It is absolutely wonderful
to have a washer and dryer in our kennel for pads, pillows,
blankets, bedding and of course toys, toys, and more toys!
After the Nursery, then they graduate up to the juvenile kennel. Where they have their own pen to share
with a ( playmate ) or buddy. The kennels all have refrigerated air conditioning that are thermostatically
controlled. It is set according to temperatures where they comfortable 24-7. They all have fans or ceiling fans
to also help circulate air in the summer.
In the winter time they all have electric heaters also thermostatically controlled.
One on each end of the kennels to keep them as comfortable as possible.
In each pen they have their own personal bed, self feeder, fresh water and of course toys ! The more toys the
better ! Lol ! They got to have their play toys ! All pens have large runs to allow for plenty of exercise. But
when it's hot they can stay out or come inside to a nice cool environment. They are also let out on schedule
routine basis in large grassy area's and the back yard to run, romp, and play with one another for hours. They
enjoy this tremendously! All dogs need to socialize with people and play with one another, to grow up and

Thanks so much for visiting and looking here at Happy Holler !
... Treat me kindly , my beloved master for no heart in the world is more grateful for kindness
than the loving heart of me .
... Do not break my spirit with a stick , for though I lick your hand between the blows , your
patience and understanding will more quickly teach me things you would have me do.
... Speak to me often , for your voice is the sweetest music , as you must know by the
fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear .
...When it is cold and wet , please take me inside , for I am now a domesticated animal ,no
longer used to the bitter elements . And I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at
your feet beside the hearth . Though had you no home , I would rather follow you through ice
and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home , in all the land ,for you are
my god , and I am your devoted worshiper .
... Keep my pan filled with fresh water , for although I should not reproach you were it dry , I
cannot tell you when I suffer thirst .
... Feed me clean food , that I may well , to romp and play and do your bidding ,to walk by
your side , and stand ready , willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be
in danger .
... And , beloved master , should the great master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight ,
don't turn me away from you . Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me
the merciful boon of eternal rest ... And I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew ,
my fate was ever safest in your hands .
