The love for Schnauzers has been in our family for a long time and the result of it is our Kennel de Illyria. The name of the kennel refers to the Illyrians, a people who inhabited areas of Croatia in later prehistory. The work of the ancient Greek historian Hecateus from Miletus mentiones the Illyrians already in the 5th century B.C.

The Schnauzers crawled under our skin, and became our most favourite, cheerful and beautiful hobby. The dogs enjoy all the freedom as well as our company. They are very healthy and well balanced, and have achieved great successes at dog shows in various countries.

We breed primarily black miniatures of a very specific and easly recognisable type, and the highest quality shiny black hair. Recently we introduced a pepper & salt bitch into our kennel and started breeding pepper & salt miniatures as well.
