It is very important to keep you Miniature Schnauzer at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Miniature Schnauzer weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 6.4kg to 8.6kg and for a male from 7.62Kg to 10.1kg. That is, 14.1lbs to 19lbs for females and 16.8lbs to 22.3lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Miniature Schnauzer weight is such that approximately 25% of the male dogs have a weight between 9kg and 10kg (between 19.8lbs and 22lbs) and 40% of the female dogs have a weight between 7.5kg and 8.5kg (between 16.5lbs and 18.7lbs).
