Heartbeat Toy for Miniature Schnauzer Puppy’s First Night Home

HeartbeatToy for Puppy's First Night Home

A puppy’s first night home is usually memorable. It can be a pleasurable memory. Alternatively, maybe it is remembered as rather exhausting.

Nowadays, supports are available, such as comfortable dog beds, well-made dog crates and quality toys.

Taking advantage of supports such as these helps to make family life considerably easy, including that of the much-loved pet. Well, certainly much more comfortable than times before the availability of quality canine products.

Helping Puppy Overcome Emotions the First Night In a New Home

It is a sad fact that some puppies are left to suffer that first night alone, after being adopted into a family.

The first six to seven weeks of a puppy’s life is in the warmth and companionship of their mother and siblings. Suddenly, the puppy has left behind the only comfort he/she has known and taken to live in a strange environment.

This move is certainly not one that a puppy chooses. Therefore, it’s up to us as the new parent to provide the best care comfort possible to our circumstances.

Can you imagine what it would be like to sleep in the home of a stranger? That is something I would not enjoy. Neither does a young puppy get pleasure sleeping alone in a new bed, in a strange home.

When the Sun Has Gone Down on Puppy’s New Home

Even though a puppy has been warmly welcomed by new owners, when day turns to night and bed-time arrives, the puppy experiences loss of his mother and siblings.

As the owner of the new puppy, it is tough to hear the whimpering throughout the night. In many cases, the despair of the puppy gets to the heart of the new owner. Consequently, the action is to move this new delightful but unhappy puppy from its position, onto the bed of the owner.

How much damage that action can cause! One night or part of it sleeping with a new parent leads to every night of that puppy sleeping on the bed of the parent.

I know it to be a fact, due to personal experience.

Was it essential to take the puppy onto my bed?

At the time, it seemed the only humane thing to be done.

In hindsight, had we taken time to prepare for this new family member, including purchasing a comfort toy, I believe it would have been a different story.

Of course, there is always the option of strict training to return a puppy to his her bed permanently. However, why go down that track when providing a comfort toy could eliminate any sleeping concerns right from the start?

Ownership of Puppy’s Toys

Watching a puppy playing with his toy is precious. Try taking the toy away from him, at your peril. 

Choosing a quality toy, especially for bed-time, is a wise decision. A toy that has a short life-span may cause distress to a still young puppy.

A toy of great comfort for new puppies, whether Miniature Schnauzers or another breed is the:

SmartPetLove Snuggle Puppy Behavioral Aid Toy, Biscuit
  • The original Snuggle Puppy, celebrating 22 years of comforting pets
  • Helps with crate training by reducing negative behaviors such as whining and barking, which also helps YOU sleep at night

 

A second choice is one that not only provides support for a puppy at night, but it also has the same effect throughout the day.

 And, the third toy, although completely different in style, has proved to be a favourite.

Rather than resembling a sibling, it is a pillow that a puppy can snuggle up to and gain similar benefit to the previous two items.

Each of the three toys is a heart-beat toy, and all have excellent reviews from Verified Purchasers.

That first-night experience of a puppy in a new home can be peaceful with the provision of an appropriate toy.  Be assured your puppy will love and thank you for the gift of a toy to comfort him, or her.  Moreover, I’m sure the pleasure you receive will be something to remember for a lifetime.

I wish you and your puppy many happy years together.  I hope you found something helpful by visiting this article.

Cool Dog Tricks Your Miniature Schnauzer Will Love to Learn

cool dog tricks your miniature schnauzer will loveWatching a dog performing tricks is one of the most pleasurable activities to be enjoyed. When it comes to performing tricks Miniature Schnauzers are no exception.  In fact, Miniature Schnauzer dogs are particularly keen on showing off their cool dog tricks.

Because of a dog’s loyalty to their owner, they just love to please and that includes performing tricks they have learned.

Most tricks are taught to dogs, but I once knew a little dog that made up his own tricks.  That little dog was very proud of his tricks and performed them to anyone who cared to join in the fun of watching him.

What Kind of Tricks Are the Best to Teach your Miniature Schnauzer

There are a great number of tricks that can be taught over and above the usual Sit and Stay.

I don’t class Sit and Stay as tricks, although I’m aware that some people do.

 Cool Dog Tricks are actions such as:

  • High Five
  • Begging
  • Shaking Hands (Paws)
  • Standing on hind legs and dancing
  • Rolling Over
  • Taking a Bow
  • Playing Dead

The trick, playing dead, might not sound the best but it is harmless and fun to watch.  The owner of the dog points his finger at the dog and says ‘bang’.  When the dog hears the word ‘bang’ he drops to the ground and lays still.

Another action great to watch is a dog intertwining his body between rows of tall pegs in the ground.  Again, this can be classed as training, as in preparing for a competition or show. It can also be considered a trick, and a valuable trick when it comes to a dog’s concentration and exercise.

Learning Tricks are Important to a Dog’s Development

Setting aside time to teach your Miniature Schnauzer some cool tricks is helpful in respect to your dog’s mental and physical health.

Playing ball games with your dog or young puppy can also be considered as tricks.  Thinking creatively about teaching your dog a certain way of catching a ball, hiding it and finding the ball again can be included in his list of cool dog tricks.

In the video below you can see a young Miniature Schnauzer dog performing her tricks.  I could see how much this dog enjoys the activity.   Her concentration and fitness level are amazing and reveal her desire to please her owner.

I once saw a dog putting his toys into his Toy Box.  It was unbelievable that a dog would be so tidy as to do that.

However, did you watch the video and see the dog placing the rings over the stem of the toy?  If so, perhaps you will agree it is possible to train a dog to put his or her toys away when finished with for the day.

Well, it’s worth a try, and can be considered as another cool dog trick your Miniature Schnauzer loves to perform.

Thank you for visiting this post.

I look forward to receiving your comments and/or questions.
