Is the Miniature Schnauzer good with children?
Parent Category: FAQs
Miniature Schnauzers are generally good with children if raised with them from a young age. Each is an individual with an individual temperament and socialization experience. Young children need to be introduced carefully to dogs and no young child should be left unsupervised with a dog of any breed. The breed is generally very good with older children and teenagers, joining in all sorts of games. Sometimes there is an instinctual reaction from the dog with young children. Don’t forget they were bred to react to quick actions and high pitched noises. As far as adopting an older dog, how they react to younger children depends mostly on their former experiences. Those that have been used to younger children usually are more tolerant than those that have not.
