DraXparK Giant Schnauzers

We are Lesley and Jim Parker from a small village near Drax in North Yorkshire. We own Giant Schnauzers and show our dogs as a hobby. We may occasionally have puppies, although, only once a year or so in order to continue our hobby, and maintain and progress the bloodlines of our dogs. We are members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme, and have passed a Kennel Club inspection under the UKAS accreditation rules and regulations. We have been awarded the Kennel Club Accolade of Excellence which is given exclusively to members of the Assured Breeder Scheme with a record of outstanding achievement in a breed.


Our first encounter with a Giant Schnauzer was in 2002 at the local training class we attended with 'Inka' our beloved spotty friend. A few years later after moving house and suffering a theft, we decided it was time for a larger more imposing dog and by coincidence we saw the same Giant again at our training class. After speaking to her owner and researching the breeds characteristics we decided a giant was the right dog for us, and very soon our first Giant 'Kaiser' arrived. A lovely couple we had come to know who owned and showed Miniature Schnauzers introduced us to the show scene, and much to our suprise it became our interest.

About Us As a child I knew I wanted to spend time with dogs (Initially wanting to be a vet or police dog handler)... but in the end I decided to devote 21 years of my life helping people instead and trained as a Registered General Nurse, then specialised in Accident & Emergency nursing where I worked as an A & E nurse at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, until we were both involved in a serious accident ourselves. I think because of my medical background we are especially fanatical about the health of our Giants. We invest in undertaking all health related tests and research, which includes; hip scoring, elbow grading, eye testing, thyroid testing, DCM DNA testing, DNA testing for prcd-PRA and the new PRA5 test, and also the latest DNA testing for genetic diversity.

We like to keep in touch with the people who have our dogs and love to receive photos and hear how they are getting on.
