“If I had a dollar for every time my dog made me smile, I’d be a millionaire.”
It was a lovely fresh morning in the dog-friendly neighbourhood of Cresta. Our Schnauzers Chloe and Bella joined that pack that had already contained Penny, Zorin, Tawnee, Ozzy and Roxy. They were very happy to be going out on the town, as usual. They were jumping up and down, and when we got to the walk they were very well behaved, though still excited. They really wanted to say ‘hi’ to all the other dogs in the dog-friendly neighbourhood of Cresta.
Did you know?
The American Kennel Club describes the temperament of miniature Schnauzers as “alert and spirited, yet obedient to command… friendly, intelligent and willing to please… never overaggressive or timid.”Usually easy to train, they tend to be excellent watchdogs with a good territorial instinct, but more inclined toward barking than biting. They are often aloof with strangers until the owners of the home welcome the guest, upon which they are typically very friendly to them.
They are highly playful dogs, and, if not given the outlet required for their energy, they can become bored and invent their own “fun”. This makes these dogs a delight to walk in the morning. They can expend some of what seems like an endless supply of energy, and the walkers get to experience their lovely nature. It’s a win-win.
