Thanks for visiting my web site. My name is Jodi Moline and I live in Bellingham,
Washington with my husband Ken. Bellingham is a coastal city built around the
deep water harbor of Bellingham Bay, and is set against the backdrop of the
Cascade Mountains. Bellingham is the last major city before the coast of Washington
state meets the border of Canada (situated between the major metropolitan areas of
Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia).
My journey with the Standard Schnauzer began in 1993 with "Sash". Our family was young and we were looking for a pet. I grew up with Weimaraners and seriously considered sticking with what I knew best, but we thought we would like something smaller, so a quest began to find the perfect dog. I researched dog breeds for a year and settled on the Standard Schnauzer, believing it was the right dog for us. Little did I know there weren't too many of them around and they proved a bit hard to find. I finally met Anne Mustappa of Von Schonhaven Standard Schnauzers and that is where we bought Sash. Sash was indeed the perfect dog and we haven't looked back since.
How did I get started showing dogs? It's the classic story. . . .I was encouraged by two local breeders to enter a dog show with my girl, "just for fun". They told me not to expect to win, but just to give it a try. Well, I entered that show with my six month old puppy and I took winners bitch! The rest, as they say, is history. "Sash" became both an American and Canadian Champion and was officially known as AM/CAN CH Von Schonhaven's Pepper Sash.
I breed occasionally, for show, performance, and companion dogs. Health and temperament are first and foremost in my program! My goal has always been to breed sound dogs, in health, temperament, and conformation. I am a member of the Mt. Baker Kennel Club, The Standard Schnazer Club of Canada - Western Division, and the Standard Schnauzer Club of America (SSCA). I am serving as Secretary for the SSCA and the Electronic Mail Chairperson. I have also served the club on the Board of Govenors (for 2008-2009).
Thanks again for visiting!
