Just to introduce ourselves, we are Dexter and Louis, 2 Miniature Schnauzers living in the West Country. Here we are rooting about in the woods this week just so you know what we look like:
his is the best part of our day when we get to explore - there are so many smells to investigate we don't know whre to start first! This land is part of the Woodland Trust 5 minutes from where we live - there are also some great fields but the farmer had dared to put a lot of cows in there this week so we're avoiding there at the moment - those cows can run pretty fast if they decide to chase you!
So, what else do we do? Well, we have a big job guarding our home of course and we take this very seriously. One of us is always on the look out for callers and then our job is to bark as loudly as we can - turning in circles at the same time is optional but most favoured by Dexter.
We go to something called 'dog training' where we get to meet loads of other dogs and do various things to keep our humans happy. Sometimes we just have to sit still for one minute in a line and we get loads of praise and a treat - simples!
|That's Louis sat right in the middle|
We're the only two Mini's at training at the moment, although there are a couple of Pupsters attending puppy parties who may be joining us - it would be good to have someone to pass the knowledge on to! Well, we'll leave it there for this first post, having told you a bit about ourselves, we'll be back with more Schnauzer Days tales - xxx
