Dog Parks are becoming ever so popular these days. Why? They offer dog loving families fun-filled days with their favorite furry friends.
But before you head out with your Miniature Schnauzer, ask yourself these questions:
• Is my Miniature Schnauzer socialized?
• Does my Miniature Schnauzer play nice with other dogs?
• Is my Miniature Schnauzer comfortable around other pets, people, children?
• Does my Miniature Schnauzer respond to the basic obedient commands?
If you answered "NO" to any of the above questions, it doesn't mean you shouldn't go to the dog park, but it does mean you should keep your Miniature Schnauzer leashed at all times, and keep a watchful eye on him.
Walk your Miniature Schnauzer on the trails or path only. This will expose your Miniature Schnauzer to new sites and smells. And once your Miniature Schnauzer is better trained and able to interact properly with other dogs and people, you can check out the off leash areas the park provides.
