About the SSCNC

The Standard Schnauzer Club of Northern California, the Nation's oldest regional club dedicated to the Standard Schnauzer, has for 64 years sought to protect and advance the interest of the breed by encouraging sportsmanship among the owners, breeders and fanciers of the Standard Schnauzer.

Through its Rescue Network and events such as the AKC CGC Program, Regional "Specialty", and the Annual Christmas Party, the SSCNC seeks to strengthen the breed by helping build a community of these wonderful dogs and their human caregivers.
