I want my Miniature Schnauzer to perform for the reward of performing his commands.
The Response is the reward
When training your dog most people use treat reward. That in itself is not a bad idea, however, there is a method to doing it correctly. Once the dog comprehends the command then it becomes necessary to reward in irregular intervals and extending the delayed gratitification for longer and longer periods of time until the dog arrives at the point of the response, opening the command is the reward. I compare this to someone evolving from a hedonist to an epicurean to eventually arrive at the stoic. To do otherwise to eventually get counter productive behavior which is not what you are looking for.
The reward is the response is that the dog eventually enjoys preforming the command for the enjoyment of the end result. Dogs love to please even when they are not be rewarded with treats and praise.
The response reward is accomplished as a result of random treat reward.
Did you know that dogs are the 2nd most intelligent animal trumped only by their human animal, man! When you get a puppy from Zurilgen Kennel of Miniature Schnauzers representing California.
Barbara and her daughter Madison train puppies during the first 8 weeks. Her puppies are socialized, domesticated, humanized and stimulated in an proprietary manner to increase intelligence and to assist with their physiological health.

Nature versus Nurture
What makes a great puppy become a great dog?!
Nature makes the puppy however, Nurture makes the dog.
The breeder is responsible to do selective breeding to give the public a puppy that will be easy to train and easy to socialize. However, the buck does not stop here.
The new puppy owner must be accountable to take the responsibility to train, socialize and take the responsibility for the end result.
Yes, from 0 to 8 weeks the breeder must socialize the puppies and give them a nurturing environment.
Yes, also the breeder must teach the new puppy owner what must occur during the first 30 days, 3 months, and where the puppy should be by 6,7, 8 months old.
Yes, every new puppy owner must commit to continued puppy classes for the first year of their puppy’s life.
Dogs are NOT equivalent to a VCR to simply turn on and off; they are a live animal similar to the animal human owner.
Yes, you need to commit to puppy training of manners, socialization and more just like we do for our children.
Take Your Miniature Schnauzer for a ride. Dogs are great companions, especially a Miniature Schnauzer. You can take them anywhere these days and it is easy!!!
I personally traveled with my Miniature Schnauzer puppy at 10 weeks old from here to Alaska and back again. I held her in the cabin and I put her in her soft carry on. I carried some wee wee pads with me and when we had a short airplane change I just took her to the restroom with us.
It was easy and it was fun for everyone!!!
On July 18, 2018 Madison, my daughter, took this short video of our puppies that are available for adoption. All of the puppies are mesmerized by Madison talking the for. It does look like a trained performance.
These puppies are from a bloodline of Champions and Grand Champions, they are calm, playful, lovable and good natured.
Look here! Here comes the never before Jack, courtly, charming, dashing!
