The Miniature Schnauzer, a Great Family Pet

The last weekend of Oct. here in Rehoboth Beach is the annual Sea Witch Festival. One tradition is that many people dress their dogs  in all sorts of great costumes. There lots of Miniature Schnauzer’s dressed as everything from princesses to Donald Trump.  I thought that I would provide some information about the Miniature Schnauzer today.  The Miniature Schnauzer is a small sturdy dog with a square head. They are very intelligent, active and happy dogs. They get along great with children and really enjoy being around “their” people.  The are loving, affectionate and docile animals. The Schnauzer makes a very good family pet.  They cannot sense that they’re stronger minded than their owners or they won’t  listen. So you must be firm with them.  These dogs are easy to travel with as they love to go on trips with you.  Don’t  overfeed them because they tend to gain weight easily.

The Miniature Schnauzer makes a good apartment dog. They will be calm indoors as long as they get plenty of exercise.  Take them for long walks on their leasg but be sure that you’re the leader and that they get enough exercise.

Their life expectancy is about 15 years and they usually don’t show signs of old age until late in life.

Their wiry coat  isn’t hard to groom. Comb and brush them daily with a short wire brush to prevent matting.

The Miniature Schnauzer is a German breed. During the turn of the century both smooth German Pinscher’s and coarse hair Schnauzer pups appeared in the same litter.
