Giant Schnauzer – Best breed if you have time and courage
by Mr. G
(Chicago, IL USA)
I have a Giant Schnauzer and she is one of the best dogs I have had. She is great with people, other animals large and small, kids of any age. They are always safe and she is a great guard dog.
She is a funny dog. One thing you have to be firm with this breed. I am with her. I make her do things she does not want to do and in the end she does them - sitting on fire hydrant, sit on garbage cans 3 feet high, etc.
I live in an apartment and I walk 2 miles in the morning. Its good for my health an hers.
Please do not use a harness, gentle leader, pinch collar, only shock collar. Without the shock your dog will control you. I have used all types of dog training collars. Shock is the way to go.
About treats: puppy yes, adult dog no no!
