NEED HELP!
by: Anonymous

Well, that answers my question about my schnauzer 1 1/2 year old male. We always take long walks in the winter and spring, no problem. He ( Pepper) love to go outside, but I noticed this week all he wants to do is pee and poop and start pulling me back toward home. I live in Alabama and the temp is in the 75-80's daily.

Thank you for the this helpful comment.

Is the Weather Getting Warmer?
by: Anonymous

I don't know what the weather was like when she shortened her walks but my mini schnauzer does great on long walks (4 to 5 miles) when it is cool outside. However, when it gets hotter than 75 F he heats up pretty easy, runs from shade to shade and wants to go home pretty quick. I live in Florida so I've learned in the summer to keep the walks pretty short. In the winter and spring we enjoy our long walks (but I bring lots of water and give him water breaks even if the weather is cool). This is just my experience with my schnauzer. Hope it helps ypu.
