This history page is a work in progress; I will be adding to it as I gather more facts. If you find any of the facts wrong, please let me know so I can correct them. Also I need information for this page from all countries, as I want to gather as much information in one spot as I can. Although I tried to assign all titles to the proper country, this is written from an American viewpoint and so will lean a bit in that direction.

Many of the facts used are taken from the following books/magazine:

I would like to thank Martina Imbeault for the German translations and Lynn Christiansen and Tania Kidd for contributing information to the original page, with a very special thanks to Karen Strom for letting me have the Schnauzer Timeline that she originated.
