I have had my mini schnauzer for three weeks. When I take him in the front yard, he is not on a leash. When it is time to go inside, I call him. He acts like he is following me, then he runs from me. How do I get him to come when I call?
Mini Schnauzers are great, I have two of them, but they do not do well off-leash. I'm not saying you can't train them off-leash, but they need to be well trained on-leash before even thinking about letting them off. Mine have had private sessions with a trainer and I still would NEVER let them go outside without a leash. All it takes is for them to be distracted by something, have their prey drive kick in and they are gone. Have fun and good luck with your puppy and don't let it think it's the boss because although they are really sweet & cuddly, mini schnauzer's can be very dominant & pushy.
