the rest of the group, schnauzers come from Germany, instead of the British Isles. The terra in terrier means earth, meaning
the dogs were bred to burrow underground when hunting small prey. Miniature schnauzers were not specifically
bred for this line of work—though they were popular for ratting—so they lacked the aggression
of their fellow terriers. The happy and friendly dogs have a different
upbringing and bloodline than the other terriers, despite similarities in appearance. Instead, Miniature Schnauzers are sociable
dogs that love to be with their people. Their deepest need is to be fully included
in all family activities, whether those activities center on watching television or going out
for a run. 9. The word Schnauzer means beard. Being bred in Germany led to a German moniker. Schnauze comes from the German word for muzzle,
referring to the dog’s square snout and distinct facial hair. But unlike your dad’s, the mustache isn’t
just for show. As ratters, the thick facial hair was sometimes
matted down into thick armor that protected the canine’s face from any potential retaliation
from its prey. 8. Miniature Schnauzers have a thick, wiry double
coat. It came in handy when they dug into the ground,
as it naturally kept the debris off. And, as a bonus, they do not shed much, so
they work well for owners who have allergies. However, they need to be groomed regularly;
frequent brushing, hair and nail trimming, and periodic clipping and stripping are necessary. 7. Schnauzers were bred to hunt rats, so they
rely on their keen sense of hearing to locate the vermin. Don’t expect any disturbances to get past
them: They can hear frequencies twice as high as humans. As well as they can hear, they can also make
noise. These little dogs have big voices. The canines use this vocalization to say hello,
alert you of something they found, or to let you know how they’re feeling. They bark when they’re happy, sad, or just
bored. 6. Schnauzers have been used as guard dogs in
past centuries. However, as the time passed smaller sized
Schnauzers which are more suitable to be kept in houses were preferred more over Giant Schnauzers. 5. What do Usher and 50 Cent have in common? You guessed it: they’re both happy Miniature-schnauzer
owners. Other notable celebs that have had Miniature-schnauzer
as companions include Keyshia Coles, Sugar Ray, Doris Day, Errol Flynn and Mary Tyler
Moore. Oh and Bob Doyle. [Bob Dole – “ I didn’t bring along and
samples. One guy already asked”] 4. Schnauzers have a lot of energy and therefore
need to be exercised often. If you don’t exercise a Schnauzer then they
may become a little stir-crazy and even a bit mischievous. There are many ways you can exercise a Schnauzer
such as going on daily walks or runs, going to a local dog park or just playing games
with them. 3. They are a long-lived breed with an average
lifespan of about 14 years. Miniature Schnauzers are generally healthy,
but like all breeds, they’re prone to certain health conditions, including cataracts and
retinal atrophy. 2. He’s very intelligent, which makes training
easy, but it also means he’s a master of manipulation. That combined with his stubbornness will keep
you on your toes. He’s not as feisty as some terriers, however,
nor as dog-aggressive. As with every dog, the Miniature Schnauzer
needs early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and
experiences — when they’re young. Socialization helps ensure that your Miniature
Schnauzer puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog. 1. Miniature Schnauzers are highly adaptable. Another one of the defining characteristics
of the breed and another reason it’s so popular is its high adaptability to most environments. It can make its home almost anywhere. Want more fun, fauna facts? Go ahead and smash that subscribe button and

    Miniature Schnauzers are fantastic dogs, you are right about them going to the bathroom with you. One thing to know miniature schnauzers can also have food allergies and also schnauzer comedo syndrome. We were able to control schnauzer comedo syndrome in both my schnauzers by offering them a grain free diet.
