  1. Mini Schnauzer as a breed

    General Dog Forum
    Hi I didn't know where to post this so sorry in advance. I did my research, I've spoken to owners and breeders and I was certain a mini Schnauzer was the breed for us. Now my groomer friend tells me that they are snappy, aggressive in general and not a breed to have if you are considering...

  3. Timid dog (sometimes)

    Attention All New Members
    We recently acquired an adult (4 yrs old) female miniature schnauzer who is very timid at times. If I am sitting down in the same room with her she will come when called and seeks to be picked up and will sit in my lap for long stretches of time, even going to sleep. However, if I am standing up...

    Hello, I adopted a going-on 6 year old spayed female miniature Schnauzer from a rescue group on March 17th. She's underweight for her size and had a moderate amount of fleas. She was energetic, happy, and hungry when I brought her home. She wanted all the food in the house and had a strong...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a miniature schnauzer, her name is Effie. I need help with an AKC name, I want it to be classy not corny. It doesn't need to include her name and she didn't come from a "kennel" just a friend who had two AKC registered schnauzers that had a litter. I don't really want it to be a play on...

  10. Schnauzer Puppy Freezes with Spray Collar - Not the intended effect!

    Dog Training Forum
    Henry is an 8 month old mini schnauzer who has always been an anxious, nervous wreck. With patience, encouragement and treats it's been amazing how far he has come. To give one example, walking on a leash was a terrifying experience before - large, loud vehicles, people, birds, leaves blowing in...

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Hey everyone. We just rescued Duke, our 7 year old Standard Schnauzer, in October. We’ve taken him to the groomers before, but it’s just too expensive to do on a regular basis. My mom is sure that with enough information she will be able to groom him at home. She wanted to start with what we...

  13. Hi I am Lisa from CA with a Minature Schnauzer and a Border Collie

    Attention All New Members
    I just found this site as I am frantic about my schnauzer that seems to have to have her anal glands expressed every two weeks. I think it has to do with diet and her needing more fiber??? I was also told her glands are down below at 4 30 and 5 30 which is a problem. Any suggestions i would...
  14. Can anbody suggest some Giant Schnauzer breeders?

    General Dog Forum
    I'm asking this for a family friend who is looking for a protection dog, but it also needs to be hypo-allergenic (I know nothing is completely hypo-allergenic, but I know his wife isn't bothered by schnauzers). He is also hoping to find an already trained dog, not a puppy. Does anybody know...

    Hello, I need help with my Giant Schnauzer, Gus. He is almost 7 years old and weighs about 110 lbs; such a big dog with tons of "gusto" but when it comes to his GI system, he's weak as can be! Honestly, his system was fine for the first 5 years of his life. We fed him Iams Large Breed and had...

    Hi all, Just wanted to re-post the link to my blog for any confused owners with liver shunt pups. When our mini-schnauzer got sick it took a long time to figure out what it was and when we did it took longer to understand what it meant and how we should deal with it. Our little guy just...
