What Makes The Miniature Pinscher Dog A Great Pet?

May 2, 2008
What's the first thing you think of when you hear about the Miniature Pinscher? Many think he's a miniature Doberman. Others think he's simply yappy and tends to bite. Owners of this breed can tell you none of that is true.

In actuality, the Min Pin is fun loving, loyal and intelligent. He's earned his nickname as the King of the Toys.

There's no question that this breed has a bit of an attitude. They are courageous well beyond what their 10 pounds would indicate. They seem to think they weigh much more than that. You'll notice it in their proud walk with their high steps and head held high as well.

And when you have a dog that is so proud, loyal and courageous you have an excellent watchdog. But you also have a dog that can at times be a handful.

A good Min Pin owner quickly establishes himself as the alpha male or female. If this is not done, the dog can become a tyrant, thinking he's in charge of the household. Early training is a must and it needs to be consistent. You can't let your dog get away with bad behavior just because he's so cute. It can be tough sometimes to enforce discipline because of this, but it needs to be done. The good news is that Miniature Pinschers are easy to train because they are highly intelligent.

And once he's trained you will have everything you could want in a pet. Your Min Pin will be incredibly loyal and loving and simply a joy to be around. These dogs are real comedians and will leave you laughing every time you watch them play.

Remember we mentioned that the Miniature Pinscher is good with children. There's a catch. Because the breed is very sturdy and of course playful, kids can have a tendency to play too rough. Min Pins aren't fragile, but they are only 10 pounds. Children need to keep this in mind because as we said, they certainly act like they weigh more.

And there are very few breeds that would be considered more loyal than a Miniature Pinscher. He will quickly become attached to everyone in your family, although he does have a tendency to become very attached to one person in particular.

If you want a pet to entertain you, love you, be loyal to you, and just be fun to be around, the Miniature Pinscher would be a great choice. The breed remains very playful even into its old age. You may think you need a lot of energy to keep up with them, and to a certain extent that's true. But they love to play by themselves with you watching. And while they do need exercise, because of their size they can get plenty of it just running around your home or apartment.

And when it's time to settle down your Min Pin will be right there next to you. They are fun, smart, loyal, and easy to care for. What more would you want in a family pet?
