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.

Ignore the barking

  1. When you put your dog in their crate or in a gated room, turn your back and ignore them.
  2. Once they stop barking, turn around, praise them and give a treat.
  3. As they catch on that being quiet gets them a treat, lengthen the amount of time they must remain quiet before being rewarded.

When you play with your dog, let him mouth on your hands. Continue play until he bites especially hard. When he does, immediately give a high-pitched yelp, as if you're hurt, and let your hand go limp. This should startle your dog and cause him to stop mouthing you, at least momentarily.
