Miniature Pinschers Expert Advice
“Min Pins are exceptionally bright. I think the key to training them well is to teach them how to learn. Or from a slightly different perspective, teach yourself how to communicate in a way they can understand. Once you’ve done that, the sky’s the limit.” – Donna Luzzo obedience competitor from Washington, New Jersey (from Popular Dogs: Miniature Pinschers)
“Obesity can be a big issue with certain (genetic) lines of Miniature Pinschers. They don’t know when to stop eating. If your Min Pin is already a bit heavy, then get ‘em off the couch and go out for a walk.” – Virginia Brookings, D.V.M., a veterinarian in Shreveport, Louisiana.
“Be prepared for active, toddler-like behavior [from your Min Pin] for life, above normal amounts of barking, challenging housebreaking, but also lots of love and fun” - Armando Angelbello of Marlex kennel in Davie, Florida (from Popular Dogs: Miniature Pinschers)
A short coated breed that sheds minimally, your Min Pin will not leave a trail of hair behind it as it whisks around your home like a tiny tornado. A brisk brushing with a rubber curry brush or grooming glove twice a week will remove dead hair, stimulate coat oils and keep your pet clean and shiny. Expect a slight increase in shedding in the spring and fall as its smooth, hard coat adapts to seasonal changes. – Kathy Salzberg, N.C.M.G., co-owner of the Village Groomer in Walpole, Massachusetts (from Popular Dogs: Miniature Pinschers)
