How much exercise does a miniature schnauzer puppy need?

Best answers
He needs 45 minutes of daily exercise — remember, a tired Miniature Schnauzer is a good Miniature Schnauzer.
Giant Schnauzers are energetic breed and require at least two long walks per day or 30 to 60 minutes of vigorous exercise in the backyard. Without proper exercise and mental stimulation, Giant Schnauzers can become very destructive and difficult to handle.
The Standard Schnauzer needs at least an hour of vigorous activity every day. He's a high-energy dog, and should be walked briskly a minimum of three times a day, about 20 minutes each time. Or you could take him for two half-hour walks.

12 to 16 hours

A Lot. On average, Schnauzers spend 12 to 16 hours each day sleeping. Your Schnauzer's specific sleep needs might vary around this range, depending on her age, size, activity level, as well as overall health. Schnauzer puppies can spend a maximum of 20 hours sleeping in a day.
A healthy Min Schnauzer has an excellent appetite, so they will be happy with treats of extra pieces of their dog food as well as a dog cookie. A little fruit or vegetable added to their food, or as a treat is fine – raw baby carrot, a bite of apple or pear, green beans.

At least 30 minutes a day is the minimum recommended Miniature Schnauzer exercise.

You shouldn't think about getting one if you cannot commit to at least one daily walk with your Mini.

Like humans, dogs' energy levels do vary and a dog with lots of energy will need longer than half an hour.


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.
