The Schnauzer Miniature is a small dog with a big personality. Sturdy and muscular they stand with a regal bearing about them that just can't be ignored. Their feathering on the chest, legs and tail, along with their bearded and long-eye browed face make them distinctive in their appearance. They can have either a wiry or soft coat, floppy or pointed ears, but always have dark brown eyes with black rims that can make their owners hearts just melt!
The Schnauzer Miniature can be greedy so you should keep and eye on their feeding to make sure they do not become overweight. They don't tend to be fussy eaters and will be happy with wet or dry food. Be careful with overly fatty foods as this puts your dog at risk of pancreatitis.
The Mini can either have a wire-haired coat or a wool coat. In both cases you will need to groom them at least twice a week, especially on the feathers of the legs, tail, chest and beard which can become matted and cause discomfort for your dog. For showing you will need to hand-strip but otherwise it's straightforward to clip them at home or to send them to the groomers. The colour of your Schnauzer Miniature will likely fade over time.
