I am Heli Lillbacka, a thirty-something miniature schnauzer breeder from Finland. I live on the southern coast, in the village of Inkoo about 50 km from Helsinki, the capital of Finland. I work for an IT-company and my spare time is dedicated to dogs. Most of my time is spent on agility, grooming and showing my dogs.
I have owned miniature schnauzers for 14 years. With sixteen litters of Xtravaschnauzas in this world, I am quite green as a breeder. However evaluating the anatomy and shape of animals has been a core of my hobbies since I was a little girl. When I was younger, I bred hamsters and rabbits – both with excellent results. I was also an international show judge prior to moving on to dogs.
I only have a few dogs of my own at home, most of the dogs showed on this website live with their co-owners. This is to ensure each dog gets enough attention and the life of a beloved pet it deserves. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more about me or my dogs!
My dogs and puppies are fed with raw food, they spend all their time as family members enjoying our spacious yard and active lifestyle with us.
