Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers | Tips for New Puppy Care

Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers knows that bringing home a new puppy is an exciting and sometimes overwhelming event. Marian Harding from Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers offers tips for bringing a Miniature Schnauzer up in its new home.

Because some schnauzers can have sensitive stomachs, Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers recommends that owners refrain from serving puppies anything rich, spicy, or greasy. Instead, Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers suggests extra pieces of dog food or dog cookies for treats. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers reminds owners that overfeeding can cause loose stools and unnecessary weight gain, so portion sizes are important.

Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers also directs pet owners to watch that the puppy’s teeth fall out properly as adult teeth come in. Sometimes, cautions Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers, large canines will need to be pulled. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers recommends brushing adult teeth with a soft, child size tooth brush.

Miniature schnauzers are much easier to care for when they are kept clean and neat, so Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers advises brushing well once or twice a week to prevent matting. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers recommends soft slicker brushes for the task. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers also reminds owners that the longer the coat grows, the more it tends to mat.

For proper holding of a puppy, Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers teaches owners to pick it up with one hand under the chest, the other under the rump. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers cautions that small children should always sit on the floor to hold a puppy, and then only with adult supervision.

Owners should use only nonslip leather or nylon collars for daily wear, says Marian Harding, although the experts at Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers do sanction ‘choke’ collars for walk time only. Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers also advises against harnesses, as they encourage a dog to pull rather than learning to walk normally.

Finally, Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers encourages owners to find a good obedience trainer who uses positive motivational methods and has studied current canine learning behavior. Upon request, Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers can provide referrals for local owners.
