The miniature with a giant personality

The Miniature Schnauzer, with their characteristic wise bearded face are as intelligent as they look. In fact, one of the most intelligent dog breeds. Add to that, fearless, spirited and friendly, then you have the ideal hairy best friend. Usually terriers are from the British Isles, not this one. The Miniature Schnauzer, as you might have guessed from the name, is German, first appearing the 1800s. Bred for farmers, to catch rats and other small vermin.

They have a thick, wiry double coat, which was ideal for digging into the ground, keeping the debris off. As an added bonus, they don’t shed much hair, which is ideal for owners with allergies. They are also well known for being very “vocal”. They bark when they’re happy, sad or just plain bored. So, it’s wise to train your Miniature Schnauzer, for a bit of peace and quiet.

This is a dog with bundles of energy, who just loves to play. That means they must have a diet containing fibre, protein and carbohydrates to provide for their daily energy needs. A high-quality complete and balanced food, containing all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they require to thrive.
