Welcome to the home of the Giant Schnauzers

'vom See Lavon'

My love for Giant Schnauzers began in 1977 with the Giant Schnauzer girls Nicky and Diana, who belonged to Klaus Höller. In 1984 the first female Giant Schnauzer, Karla vom Heimeshof, joined the family. Unfortunately, Karla was run over when she was 11 months old. 1985 Molly vom Heimeshof came to us and 2 years later the family was expanded with Maxi.


I went to the USA in 1992 and didn't have the opportunity to have a Giant Schnauzer for several years. However, the love for the giant schnauzer remained.


2005 Ferenginar vom Hedberg and 2009 Jadzia-Judy vom Hedberg came to me.  Still living in USA, I imported both from Germany.  2012 I started my own breeding program. I had my first litter 2012 under the kennel name "Ferenginar's Riesenschnauzer". I ended up keeping 3 puppies from this litter. Ana, who I had planned to keep, Wolfie, who was brought back to me when he was just under a year old and Anton, who came back to me when he was just under 1.5 years old.

I had the second USA litter with Ana 2016, under the kennel name “Riesenschnauzer vom Haus Lavon”. I changed the kennel name after my divorce in 2013 and is a reference to the lake where I lived in Texas. I didn't keep any puppies from this litter, but several puppies went to friends in the USA.

Voyager's Wendy Williams joined the family at the end of 2016.


2017, after 26 years in the USA, I moved back to Germany with Wolfie, Ana, Anton, Wendy and Felix.

Anton moved in with my parents, who live in the Lüneburger Heide, where he also had his own giant schnauzer girlfriend, Sara.

After a while, Ana moved to live with friends in the Ruhr Valley, because she was ultimately very unhappy as a pack dog. She became a single princess and loves her life.


My breeding program continued with Voyager's Wendy Williams in March 2020 under the kennel name "vom See Lavon", which is internationally protected by the FCI. Since I had already used the kennel name "vom Haus Lavon" in the USA, the AKC, however, not being a member of the FCI, the FCI could not confirm that kennel name for me.


My goal is to breed sporty family dogs that meet the PSK/FCI standard in appearance, temperament and working ability.
