Miniature Schnauzer – Voted The Best Family Pet!!!

This dog is salt and pepper coat, cropped ears and docked tail.

Miniature Schnauzers, are loyal, highly intelligent, the are in the top 12 out of 337 akc breeds of dogs!!! I takes them less than 5 repetitions to learn a command and 85% of the time they will learn it after 1 repetition.

When you buy your Miniature Schnauzer puppy make sure to ask the hard questions. A great ancestry is important so ask about their DNA, genetics, their ancestors and pedigree.  They love to please, love children, easy to train, bark only to alarm for an intruder, so they are a quiet dog, playful, funny and amusing. Although the Miniature Schnauzer will not demand that you walk them like some of the other breeds do, they do enjoy a walk, hike, running next to your bike, uphills, downhills and you will never wear them out. This is why they are often trained for agility not just obedience.

Several of my dogs are trained to boogey board, search and rescue, swim, diabetic dogs; the are able to determine blood sugar and bring required items.

Many of my dogs are therapy dogs for children and adults. They are excellent therapy dogs by nature.

The Miniature Schnauzer is a breed of small dog of the Schnauzer type that originated in Germany in the mid-to-late 19th century. Miniature Schnauzers developed from crosses between the Standard Schnauzer and one or more smaller breeds such as the Poodle and Affenpinscher, as farmers bred a small dog that was an efficient ratting dog. They are described as “spunky”[1] but aloof dogs, with good guarding tendencies without some guard dogs’ predisposition to bite. Miniature Schnauzers are recognized in three colors internationally: solid black, black and silver, and a color known as ‘salt and pepper’. There is a controversial fourth color variant in Miniature Schnauzers, pure white, which is not recognized universally.

The breed remains one of the most popular worldwide, primarily for its temperament and relatively small size. As of 2013 it is the 17th most popular breed in the U.S.
