Hi, I have a miniature schnauzer named Lotte. She'll be 2 next month (got her when she was 4 months old). She's a compact, high-energy bundle of fun - certainly not what I had expected to get myself into when I got her! She's my first dog, and she debunked the Lassie myth for me pretty early on
I started collecting training books shortly after I got her (reading suggestions are always welcome!), and we've more or less figured things out along the way on our own. I plan to eventually try rally-o with her (maybe later this spring), as well as earthdog and agility.
