I just got a miniature schnauzer yesterday, I am so happy! Looking to find other playgroups for dogs. Any recommendations?

Try meetup.com for some dog groups. There is one for exercise that seems very busy and full.

Sapphire's right on with the meetup.com recommendation......if you like getting out and walking with your dog, or participating in dog friendly activities - check out SA Nature Hounds and SA Big Dawgs! There are a few others in town as well - you could find yourself BUSY BUSY BUSY

Yes, I just don't see why we can't get the days extended from 24 to 26 hours. That's all I'd need every day to not get so far behind and do more of these fun things with my dog. He gets a 45 minute walk every day and that's about it.

I agree 110% But I'm thinking if we had 26 hours - we still might cram extra 'non-dog' things into our days, and then be wishing for 28 hour days

I just LOVE the longer days - early sunrise - late sunset....I'm not looking forward to the shorter days come November

I hope I get to meet some of you and your dog(s) at a meetup in the future - I'm in both of those groups (and a couple others) and attend with my dog(s) as often as possible!

so glad you found a group for your pup --- just wanted to mention that i LOVE the miniature schnauzer breed --- you will not be disappointed --- they are very smart and protective of their turf, be it house turf or people turf --- they don't shed and are easy to train ---

we have had 3 mini schnauzers and will probably be getting a 4th...if you ever need a recommendation for a good mini schnauzer breeder let me know...our latest pup came from a wonderful breeder in Oklahoma...we prefer the classic look of the schnauzer with cropped ears and docked tails and she is one of the few breeders that does her own cropping/docking OR she will leave the ears natural if you prefer...

enjoy your puppy and watch out...mini schnauzers are very addicting...

I love the no shedding aspect of them and I can see the smartness in him already.
