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.

Toys for a Miniature Schnauzer to Enjoy

toys for a miniature schnauzer to enjoy

Toys for a Miniature Schnauzer puppy are not only fun to play with, but they are also an essential part of how a puppy develops in both mind and body.

What better way for a puppy to get that stimulation other than an adequate supply of toys suited to the wear and tear that a puppy will give a toy over time?

I believe that adults get as much, or more, fun from watching puppies with their toys as the puppy from playing with toys.

Be Aware of Your Miniature Schnauzer’s Boredom

Miniature Schnauzer puppies, as well as adult miniature schnauzers, will become bored when experiencing a lack of activity in their daily life. 

A puppy is like a child; the very young need a lot of sleep. As they get older, they need less sleep and more activity. Should there be a lack of appropriate dog toys for a puppy to get the required exercise through play, he will find something to use as a toy. 

The last thing any family needs is to discover that their beloved puppy has caused havoc by chewing the leg of a table or chair due to a lack of appropriate toys.

If it’s not the furniture puppy attacks due to boredom, you can be sure something else will catch his eye. He will find something to amuse himself. 

Events such as those described can be challenging for family members to accept. But, the puppy sees that chair, table leg or other items tempting and off he goes biting with vim and vigour. Not a pleasant experience to find the furniture destroyed. An expensive happening, to be sure!

And be warned! Puppies also love things such as hats, cushions and perhaps the brand new knee rug recently received as a gift to a family member, but not meant for the puppy! However, it is colourful, as are the cushions and the hat left on a pillow. Oh, what fun puppy thinks; these must be my new toys.

Again, it’s not fun when discovering the wreckage. I’ve seen it happen in my own family!

Dog Toys are In Abundance

There is no shortage of toys for puppies or older dogs.  So many toys are available, some more popular than others.

Miniature Schnauzer’s Toy Box

When buying the first toy for your puppy, it’s a good idea to purchase a toy box.

Your Miniature Schnauzer is an intelligent puppy. You can teach him to put his toys away in his toy box when he doesn’t want to play.

I know that puppy putting his toys away sounds a bit much to expect. But I have seen puppies doing that. The thing to remember is that the puppy knows where to find his toys. He can get them out of the toy box. Therefore you can teach him to put his back into the toy box.  This can be a good exercise for a puppy’s mental and physical development.

A puppy may not manage to put all his toys back into the right place, but providing him with the toy box is another way of keeping him active and occupied.  Completing a task such as tidying his area will probably result in the puppy taking time out for a snooze.

Choosing Toys For A Miniature Schnauzer Puppy to Enjoy

Toys for a Miniature Schnauzer puppy, and puppies of all breeds, should be carefully chosen. Make sure toys are suitable in size and do not have any sharp pieces or parts that could harm the puppy. 

Check the construction of the toy is of a suitable material that will withstand the wear and tear of the puppy’s activities.

In the case of a fabric toy, it’s a good idea to check that the toy is washable.
