About Miniature Schnauzer

Country of Origin, History of the breed

Miniature Schnauzer is the result of breeding that started with the Standard Schnauzer, a much larger dog. They were developed by crossing the Standard Schnauzer with smaller breeds like the Miniature Pinscher, Poodle, or Affenpinscher. He is a German breed. ‘Schnauzer’ comes from the word ‘schnauze’ which means ‘muzzle.’ Its purpose was to keep vermin (mainly rats) away from the home and also to make a fine companion. Its watchdog skills are still in effect.

Schnauzers hunt, track, do watchdog duties, and compete in obedience and agility and perform tricks.

Temperament of the Dog

This dog’s watchdog skills are still in effect and this terrier finds extreme pleasure in announcing guests, the mailman, the meter reader and any other person that steps foot near his door. Early training can keep this instinct from becoming overused.

The breeds are very energetic, playful and happy. They tend to be quite feisty and will pick a fight with any other dog, even those quite larger than themselves. Most of the time they do not intend to fight, only to challenge. However, their attitude can get them into trouble.

When raised with other canines they can be quite amiable but newcomers will be met with reserve until they are ready to accept them. Socialization with a variety of dogs and people when they are young will help minimize the feistiness of the dog.

They love attention and is usually good with children of all ages. Protection of food and toys is inherent, so smaller children should be watched until they can understand this concept.

The breed's compact size makes them excellent travelers and they love the attention it brings. If training is begun early and continued consistently and firmly, the dog will be joyfully obedient. The dog is loving, affectionate, and very family-oriented.

This can be a good breed for allergy sufferers as it sheds very little and little or no oil and dander.

Better suited to an indoor or outdoor lifestyle?

This dog is very active indoors. He likes a yard but it is not necessary as long as he gets short walks through the day. This breed needs to live in the house.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

If raised with children, the dog will adore and play with the children. A 10-15 year-old can obedience train a dog if he is firm and consistent and will enjoy the adoring looks he gets when praising the dog.
