The top coat is wiry.

Since the undercoat catches the loose hair, he hardly sheds at all.

Because of this, many people think he's a perfect house dog, especially those who suffer from asthma.

Miniature Schnauzers should be groomed every five to eight weeks to keep them looking their best.

Dogs naturally lose old or damaged hair by shedding.

Although shedding is a normal process for Dogs, the amount and frequency of hair that is shed often depends upon their health and breed type.

It can also depend on the season-many Dogs develop thick coats in the winter that are then shed in the spring.

Depending on when your puppy was born, it may shed its puppy coat before the regular seasonal shed in the spring or fall.

Most puppies lose their baby coat between six and 12 months of age as the new adult fur replaces it.

When he stops barking, say "Quiet", praise him, and give him a treat. The rest is all about working with your Miniature Schnauzer in other areas and by extending the time between silence and treats until he will simply stay quiet unless he has something very important to say or you give him the 'speak' command.
