New litter Coming soon.
I think at times when I tell people that Standard Schnauzers are extremely
intelligent, they really don't realize I'm not just giving them a sales pitch,
these guys are really SMART!
I'd like to share a story with you as told to me over the phone by one of my customers.
Customer, we will call him John, purchased a really nice
female pup from me when she was about 9 weeks old, we will call her Sally.
John and Sally got off to a bit of a rocky start. Like most Standards, she
was skeptical and leery of strangers
and didn't even want to come out of her crate when John got her home.
Finally out of her crate, she spent the next couple hours sitting in the middle
of John's yard glaring at him. Eventually she came to accept her
( I suspect she just got hungry and he offered her food.)
But at any rate, over the next few days the bond grew and soon they were inseparable. She went with him every where he went and slept at his feet whenever he sat down. One day she was playing with her favorite toy, a tennis ball in the living room and theball rolled under the couch. It was a low to the floor couch, and Sally worked long and hard trying to get her ball back. Eventually she did get it back and went on playing with it, but it wasn't long until it rolled back under the couch. This time John tookpity on her, he got up, went to the closet and got a broom out, and got the ball out for her. Happy again, she went back to playing with her ball. Of course, it wasn't long before back under the couch it went. This time however, Sally took a different approach to getting her ball back. She went to John, sat right in front of him, barked once, got up, walked to the closet and turned around so she could look at him, than sat down and barked again. And sat right there until he got up and retrieved her ball for her.
Now we are not talking about a mature dog, this was a puppy that was 10-11 weeks old at the time she figured this out. Really, that is one smart dog! It's not a sales pitch, they really are that smart.
Leon and Inka came to me by way of Hungaria. My first attempt at importing dogs, and I have to say, it was an excellent decision on my part. Both dogs
were of exceptional quality, and very healthy and hardy. Like most Standards, they were extremely intelligent and a joy to work with.
