Re: Leaky heart valve - Vetmedin/ schnauzer liver problems

Poor Schuey - he really is having a bad time with his health and it must be causing you so much worry. It is not unusual for vets to attribute certain conditions as being "common" in a particular breed of dog without offering the statistics or sources they have for these statements especially when s...

Re: Behavior differences between standard and giant schnauzers

The FCI (Europe) also recognise black as an acceptable colour variety for the (standard) schnauzer and dogs of this colour are bred and exhibited at shows worldwide: http://www.fci.be/Nomenclature/Standards/182g02-en.pdf How far back historically this colour goes may be debatable but it is now accep...

Re: Random bursts of energy + poop eating = terrible combo

Andrew - I do understand your frustration with the poo eating. Although we have never experienced this with our mini schnauzers, we have two other dogs who have both done this when young and even now very occasionally (2 years and 4 years old). It is one of the most difficult dog behaviours for a hu...

Re: Random bursts of energy + poop eating = terrible combo

Hi Andrew and welcome to the Forum :-) Standard schnauzers are an exuberant, strong willed breed that do respond well to training but are not ideal for a novice dog owner. You will need plenty of patience and be prepared to put in a lot of time building your bond with her, providing mental challenge...

Re: Mabyn

Welcome to the Forum :-) So sorry to hear of the loss of your little one. It is heartbreaking when a dog passes and even more so when they so young. There are contact numbers here for the breed rescue if you are interested in rehoming a mini schnauzer. https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/services/publi...

Re: Sulking?

With our current three schnauzers they do get their own walks. We would always recommend walking a puppy separately anyway until they are walking well on lead as it is almost impossible to concentrate on training good lead walking when taking out two dogs at the same time. It does double up on the t...

Re: Schuey heart murmur collapsing and liver problem

Hi Vicky - so sorry to hear about Schuey. I hope that you can get a more detailed diagnosis from the vet after the scan tomorrow and some advice on how to support him after that too. Heart murmurs are very common in dogs of all kinds and can vary from mild to severe and it is possible for dogs to li...

Re: Progressive Retinal Atrophy

I do feel for you in these circumstances. As I said above, although the condition is extremely rare in responsibly bred miniature schnauzers, there is always the possibility of the gene being passed down a line by "carrier" dogs who do not themselves suffer the condition and remain undetected until ...

Re: 21st century Puppy Buying

From October 2018, new regulations are coming into effect (in England only) regarding the requirements for anyone breeding and selling dogs. The legislation replaces earlier Animal Welfare Acts and is an attempt to tighten up the laws around puppy sales and dog breeding generally. There are aspects ...

Re: Progressive Retinal Atrophy

Hello Andrew and welcome to the Forum.
