In short, the character is wonderful. Active life-lovers and positive friends, affectionate and attentive to the owner, watchful
protector and distrustful of strangers - that's what they are, real Zwergschnauzers.
I often call miniature schnauzers as the SMART schnauzer format.
They are companions, and that speaks for itself.
A Zwergschnauzer will quickly investigate the habits of each family member, find an approach to each person, understand and accept the family's rules - what is allowed and what is not. Most importantly, the owners are consistent and do not change the game's rules as the Mini grows up.
Zwergs are playful and outgoing. They love to be around the family or owner. That said, they are unobtrusive. That means, if the owner does not want to play and wants to rest, the Zwerg will nestle nearby and sleep. They also love to be with the owner in the kitchen, study, and nursery, and they will actively participate and help with household chores because they are companions. Miniature Schnauzers, like all Schnauzers, are pretty clever but not vindictive. Rather, they are simply smart and resourceful. Thanks to their wit and charm, Zwergs easily find a way to get what they want. So it's essential to make it clear to your puppy that he should follow your rules
