Free Schnauzer Web Pages

In our efforts to prove Schnauzers Rule we are asking our visitors to create a free web page for their Miniature Schnauzer.

Just click on this link: Miniature Schnauzer Stories and fill in the form. You can tell us anything you like about your dog and upload up to 4 pics.

Even if you have entered your dog's photo on another page of our site (ie contest, rescue, etc...) we want you to submit a page here too. We want to see as many beautiful Schnauzers from around the world as possible so please help us out. I can't imagine a true lover of Miniature Schnauzers not wanting to show their dog off.

We also have available Pet Tales where you can create a free page for any other type of dog breed or pet you might own.

So create a page for your Mini Schnauzer and send this info to all your animal loving friends so they can make free web pages for their pets too!

Deadly Antifreeze

Warning: Rush your Miniature Schnauzer to the vet if he ingests even a small amount of antifreeze.

Antifreeze has too sweet of a taste for dogs to pass up. Did you know as little as a few tablespoons could be lethal for your Miniature Schnauzer?

Consuming as little as 1 tablespoon of antifreeze could cause seizures, kidney failure, and death! Early symptoms of antifreeze poisoning include: lethargy, vomiting, thirst, depression, and stumbling around.

Review our Top 10 Summer Safety Tips to help keep your Schnauzer both safe and cool this Summer!

Man's Best Friend

It never ceases to amaze me how much we learn from our dogs. No wonder they are considered Man’s Best Friend. Enjoy these Life Lessons from the Dog and take time to read the story of just how the phrase Man’s Best Friend came to be.

Life Lessons from the Dog

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Take naps.
  • Stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily.
  • When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
