French Bulldogs and Minature Schnauzer Breeders


Michelle & Chloe, a mother-daughter team with separate breeding programs, work together to provide

their dogs with round-the-clock care. With a focus on rigorous health testing, they strive to produce

healthy, happy puppies.

Free Range Pooches is a family-owned and operated business located in North Canterbury, New Zealand.

As members of the DNZ, CKC, MDBA, and registered as a company, we have been breeding

Miniature Schnauzers since 2007 and French Bulldogs since 2013. Our breeding philosophy is centered

around producing high-quality puppies that are healthy and well-socialized.

As home-based breeders, we are dedicated to providing a loving and nurturing environment for our dogs.

When you visit us to meet your potential new puppy, you will get to see firsthand how

dogs are raised and how we all live.

We became an Dog New Zealand Accredited Breeder of French Bulldogs and Miniature Schnauzers in

2020 and conduct full breed DNA PROFILE tests on both breeds.

Patella and Heart Certs on both breeds.

Our Schnauzers get yearly EYE CERTIFICATES done by a Veterinary Ophthalmologist

Our French Bulldogs have their hips and spines x-rayed and sent to a specialist for grading.

We also take special care into BAOS issues and also get grading done around that. 
Additionally, we ensure that our dogs receive full vet check-ups every year.
