Excitable puppy

Well at least he is tearing up and shredding papers as long as it's not £5.. £10.. or £20..notes don't worry.. My Rebel, who is nearly 4 loves those cardboard egg boxes, so does Rambo and he is 8, but unless they kill the paper or the cardboard boxes they've not won !! but keep up the training and he'll grow up to be the best behaved Schnauzer in your area....

Boisterous Schnauzer
by: Anonymous

My year old Schnauzer is the same. Growls and barks at approaching strangers when we are out -until they get close..then he greets them. Very very boisterous..jumps and charges at everyone and everything...despite intense training.
Attention seeking...pinches papers, magazines etc and rips them to shreds when I'm on the phone or simply not playing with him.

I spend my time just trying to tire him out.

My Rebel is 4 in June and still very boistrous .. if you want him to calm down maybe you should talk to your vet with a view to castration.... but it may not calm him...
By calming do you mean playful or " naughty " as this may just be a sign of him growing up... be firm and kind, but do not scold him..puppies learn very quickly and will get the message..
