The Miniature Schnauzer

Kennel Success – what are Shnauzer’s like?

Ok, so the Pup to pedigree story is played out in numerous films; and the fact is, kennel’s smell bad. That’s no reason to avoid them when buying a new dog. Of course, we strive to make every experience as pleasant as possible, and even with their sweet Shnauzer attitudes, the place can still be crazy.

‘Many pet owners will attest to the fact that Shnauzer’s are less predictable, more energetic, less perfect, and thereby, seemingly more human; than other breeds. It is often said that they emote charasmatic energy and are capable of leading dogs much larger than them. This is true, and furthermore, they make very good friends to children, with no issues at all having really ever been reported of aggression. They keep to themselves until called upon and are a bottle of energy when you return home.

Potty training a Shnauzer is the same as any other dog and they have a very cool intellect. You can expect a sense understanding at a relatively young age, as their eyes don’t go hollow until they are old.
Finding a Shnauzer success story is as easy as going to the doggie park. After you admire the expensive retriever, adorable lab, and perfect poodle; note the tiny dog making all the other dogs smile. That dog is a Shnauzer, more often than not. Shnauzer’s are often the life of the party, and a very cool party at that! They will be single and ready to mingle! Very cute, and always capable of sporting a bow-tie or bow, when needed, of course.

Shnauzer’s are easily trained if gotten when young, and kennel’s are relatively good, actually, at training dogs. So, even if you adopt in the mid-term, the dog will have been trained to measure or the other. If not, one of the lasting beauty of a Shnauzer is that it isn’t generally big or clever enough to hunt for food; so, they always come home for dinner. First and foremost, the most important part of the first week is to establish boundaries for your little precious Shauzer puppy. I know it’s tempting to just sit and play with him but it’s also productive to put him in a pen and give him some time to establish autonomy.
As hard as this may be for you to believe, if he comes from a kennel, pet shop, or family home; he only knows life with other dogs being loud. For him, the strangest part of his new life will be the peace and quiet, and also, the time alone. The sooner he understands, the sooner he will accept it, and be easier to train.
