The American Miniature Schnauzer Club

The American Miniature Schnauzer Club, a member club of the American Kennel Club, was founded in 1933. It has over 600 members residing in practically all 50 states, Canada and other foreign countries. Membership to the AMSC is acquired through the nomination by two existing members and approval by the Board of Directors. The AMSC is the parent organization for some 25 local Miniature Schnauzer Specialty Clubs in the United States. Groups of dedicated Miniature Schnauzer fanciers interested in promoting wider knowledge and greater appreciation of the extraordinary qualities of this Breed founded each of these clubs. Most local clubs hold Specialty Shows and Fun Matches at various times throughout the year. The parent club, the AMSC, is responsible for defining the "Standard of Perfection" which is included in this web site. It also conducts national specialties, issues a newsletter, and maintains in print several worthwhile, award winning, publications (see AMSC Publications). Its Board of Governors actively pursues projects concerning the health and general welfare of the Breed.
