Fast Facts

  • Energy Low
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

The smallest and most popular of the Schnauzers, the Miniature Schnauzer originated in the late 1800s as a small farm dog in Germany. All the Schnauzers get their name from one individual dog named "Schnauzer" who lived around 1879—an appropriate name since Schnauzer means "small beard."

Miniature Schnauzers are the smallest of the Schnauzer Breed. They typically stand around 13-14 inches at the shoulder and come in brown, black, and other colored coats. Don't let his stature fool you, though. Miniature Schnauzers are not afraid of picking fights with larger dogs, and this can sometimes get them into trouble. While he may think he is larger than he is sometimes, the Miniature Schnauzer's size makes him a great city dog, and only requires a moderate amount of exercise.

Mini Schnauzers make excellent watchdogs, and will likely bark at anyone they don't know or could be perceived as a threat. Their intelligence and stature allow them to excel in obedience training and agility competitions. These dogs are also great at performing tricks, standing on their sturdy rear legs, and walking upright for short periods is not unheard of. A stout and smart dog, the Miniature Schnauzer is a lively, smart, affectionate, and relatively low-shedding dog. He makes a fine addition to an active family.

How dog-friendly is North Dakota?

We’ve found that different studies rank North Dakota quite differently on dog-friendly factors. The state does a great job with some aspects of pet accommodations and services. The main area of improvement for North Dakota is in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at two leading studies to understand the state’s rankings.


An animal welfare group called Pawsafe releases a ranking of all 50 states according to several pet-friendly factors. Pawsafe ranks North Dakota 45th of all the states. It’s a pretty tough ranking. As we mentioned the main issue is that North Dakota does not score well for laws against animal cruelty like pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise conducts another study looking even more closely at safety for pets and their human friends. They actually give North Dakota a much better ranking, listing the state as the 21st most pet-friendly in the country. 


If we take the two studies together, North Dakota still ranks somewhere in the middle compared to other states.
