Who Said Miniature Schnauzers Can’t Run? Don’t Believe It!

 
Miniature SchnauzersIt’s unlikely that anyone said Miniature Schnauzers can’t run.

I couldn’t resist highlighting the immense energy of the gorgeous Miniature Schnauzer puppy in the video on this page.  He is totally focused on the task set before him.

Obviously this little Mini Schnauzer has been training regularly, to be so skilled as to know what is expected of him at every stage of the course.

Not only is he running at a great pace, but he is achieving each part of the course without hesitation.

A Delightfully Focused Little Miniature Schnauzer


It is incredible that dogs have the ability to achieve at levels that many humans could not achieve.

Yes, I know there are wonderful athletes throughout the world and we see them on television competing to a high level.  They are to be admired and congratulated.  But as humans, we know that each achievement leads to something greater in our lives.

But, a little dog such as this Miniature Schnauzer keeping his focus and letting nothing distract him is amazing.  No matter how we talk to our animals, it is unlikely that they could understand how one achievement can lead to another.

These  little dogs are happy to do what we ask of them.  They live for the moment with no expectation of the future, or of anything other than the love and support of the person who is their leader and greatest companion.

 

Rewarding our Miniature Schnauzers


We reward our Miniature Schnauzers for good behavior, as we do for their achievements.

Not only do we reward Miniature Schnauzers, we do the same for any other breed of dog.

Receiving rewards are part of all dog training.  But looking at this little dog in the video, I’m sure he’s not thinking of the rewards coming to him.  He knows he has a task set before him and he goes flat out to please his owner.

That’s what our dogs do.  They are devoted to their owners and will do anything to please them.

The nature of Miniature Schnauzer dogs is that they are feisty.  In other words, they are lively, spirited and energetic and nobody could argue with that after watching the video.

I hope you enjoyed the experience of seeing this little dog in action and noticed that he achieved First Place in the Finals. No surprise there at all.

    It was really fun watching the video. He is really good and I agree with you, they can run! A miniature Schnauzer is very trainable and I love their energetic nature.

    Can you tell me what are the major health issues they normally have?

    Thank you for a great post!

      Thank you Rika for visiting my website and making comment. I’m pleased you enjoyed watching the video.

      The major health issues with Miniature Schnauzers are:  Eye problems, Skin issues and Kidney Stones, but most of these conditions can be avoided with good care.  In the case of Skin problems, these can usually be avoided with correct bathing and grooming.
