Proper daily exercise is, along with other elements such as hygiene or nutrition, one of the main requirements to keep pets healthy. In collaboration with Anna Gómez Ferran from Sangtrait Kennel who has more than 20 years of experience in the canine world, we have prepared a guide with exercise recommendations for the Miniature Schnauzer.
The Miniature Schnauzer is a strong breed of dog that needs regular daily exercise. It should go for a short walk 3 or 4 short times a day (between 10 and 15 minutes each one) and for a long walk of about 60 minutes.
If you are an athlete who likes to walk long distances or to run, this could be your breed. They are intelligent dogs that adapt quickly to different situations, so they can be a great companion to your sports activities. Miniature Schnauzers love the mountain walks. They also enjoy the beach and if you teach them from a young age, they will love to swim with you. Intense sports sessions, like playing fetch or running, can be very beneficial for this breed.
Regarding the weather conditions, it is recommended to avoid high temperatures. They will feel much more comfortable in situations of mild or lower temperature environments.
