Hazards for Outside Dogs

Now that it's getting warmer most dogs will be spending more time outdoors, which unfortunately poses even more risks to them. Here are just a few hazards you should be aware of if you plan on leaving your Schnauzer outside. Please note: We would like to caution you not to leave your Miniature Schnauzer outside for too long.

Heat Strokes: Please review the warning signs of a heat stroke in dogs and be ready to act quickly. If you do leave your Schnauzer outside for any length of time, please be sure he has access to cool fresh water and shade at all times.

Pests: Always check you Schnauzer for ticks and fleas after time spent outdoors. And to further keep those and other insects off your Schnauzer try this natural homemade insect repellent for dogs.

Sunburn: Dogs too, are susceptible to sunburn... especially on their ear tips and noses. While you don't want to use your own sunscreen on your dog, here's a formula made specifically for dogs.

Check out our Top 6 Summer Care Products to help your dog cool.

And on a hot day who doesn't enjoy a cooling popsicle? Here's our own version for dogs that is super easy to make and your Mini Schnauzer will love: PuPsicles recipe.

Adoptable Mini Schnauzer

In efforts to help Mini Schnauzer rescue organizations find loving forever homes for precious pups in need, we will begin featuring an adoptable Schnauzer each month. So many people think that rescue organizations just have severely abused, weak, and sick dogs but that is simply not the case. They have all types of dogs and puppies, too.

But not all rescues work the same way. What really makes one rescue group better than another is how they run their organization. So just do some homework. Check to see if the rescue has each animal examined by a licensed veterinarian and the dog is up-to-date on shots and tests negative for heartworms. Also, ask about the dog’s background and what training and socializing they have received while in foster care. And finally, a good rescue will make sure the dogs are spayed or neutered before permanent placement, as well as take the dog back if necessary.

Meet Miniature Schnauzer Niko This week our featured Adoptable Mini Schnauzer comes from Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas.

Niko is a young, sweet, salt and pepper Schnauzer boy, just over 10 pounds. He loves to play and is super friendly. All Niko needs now is a forever home to call his very own. Could it be yours?

Father's Day

Father's Day is Sunday June 17 and I know the Miniature Schnauzer(s) of your family will want to participate in saying thanks to Dad for everything he does for the family.

A Place Just For Dad

We may not shower him with praise
Nor mention his name in song,
And sometimes it seems that we forget
The joy he spreads along.

But it doesn't mean that we don't know
The wonderful role he's had.
And away down deep in every heart
There's a place that's just for Dad.

Dad, you're Top Dog around here!

Don't forget to send your Dad our special Father's Day Dog Ecard (above) and check out these great Miniature Schnauzer Gifts for Dad, too.
