When inside the house, the Miniature Schnauzer is lively, playing with toys and follows you around the house. He enjoys having a yard to play in, but if you take him for a good walk every day, he can survive without one. A tired Miniature Schnauzer is a good Miniature Schnauzer, thus he needs 45 minutes of activity every day.
Every dog benefits from crate training, and it's a considerate method to make sure your Schnauzer doesn't soil the house or get into inappropriate situations. He can even find refuge in a kennel for a nap. When your Miniature Schnauzer is young, crate training will assist him learn to tolerate confinement if he ever needs to be boarded or hospitalised.
A Miniature Schnauzer is an animated dog. He enjoys being in the centre of family activity because he is an extrovert. Even if you're seated, he might approach you and wrap his paws around your neck. You can be sure that he will want to sleep stuck by your side and that he wants to touch you and be close to you all the time.
The Miniature Schnauzer is a terrier, which means he's a bit of a spitfire and conceited. He's a feisty type A who enjoys making jokes about himself while working. Although he needs to be around people and wants to be in close physical contact, he is neither distant or autonomous. (Your lap no longer belongs to you.)
Ratters and farm security dogs were the original purposes for which miniature Schnauzers were created. The Standard Schnauzer was crossed with smaller breeds including the Miniature Pinscher, Affenpinscher, and possibly the Poodle or Pomeranian in Germany in the middle to late 19th century.
Importance of KCI
Also known as the Kennel Club of India, KCI is a professional body that maintains strict standards across various breeds of dogs across India. All KCI registered dogs come with a KCI registration certificate from the breeder, ensuring their pedigree. KCI representative may also visit the breeder at the time of whelping to ensure maintenance of breed standards.
As the only reputed governing body of dog breed standards, we always recommend getting a dog that has been registered through this organization in order to have clarity regarding their origin.
This does, however not ensure the conditions the pup was reared in or in what manner their parents might have been treated. This concern is what brings us to our next point: AWBI Certification
How can you make a difference?
Ensure that you only work with AWBI registered breeders, and if you're looking for a purebred dog try to find one that is KCI registered. By forcing the breeders to obtain a license, we may finally put an end to puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
The Animal Welfare Board of India requires that any individual selling any living dog must be registered with the animal welfare state board of their jurisdiction. In not doing so, both the buyer and seller are committing a crime.
Since this amendment was passed, it became illegal to buy / sell dogs without the breeder being the valid, original holder of an AWBI license. Apart from this judicial responsibility, AWBI also has strict guidelines regarding the conditions that the dogs must be kept in and the treatment provided to them. These guidelines make sure breeders follow responsible breeding practices Due to these reasons, we strictly work only with AWBI registered breeders, and implore you to do the same.
