The Schnauzer Yorkie Mix is a low-maintenance doggie, thereby taking care of it can be considerably easy. To provide your furry companion with the best care, we advise the following:
Keep the intensity of exercises low because the small Schnauzer Yorkie Mix body is prone to fatigue.
Your Snorkie is a low to medium activity dog. We recommend limiting your canine’s activity levels to a combined 5 miles of exercise per week. Ideally, your doggie should not exercise for more than 30 minutes a day.
A daily walk or light game like a game of fetch, will suit this playful companion. Include obedience training in the exercises to boost the fido’s manners and enhance your bonding. While a Snorkie can thrive in apartment living, the occasional trip to the dog park will allow the doggie to run about, play, and interact with other dogs.
Only feed your pooch high-quality dog food to reduce the risk of food-related health issues. As your puppy doesn’t need much food, serve small but frequent meals to improve digestion and reduce bloating.
Beyond 9 months, serve your mature Snorkie 1 cup of high-quality dog food, spread across 2 meals per day. Ensure any dog treats count towards the daily food rations, as the adult Schnauzer Yorkie Mixes are very susceptible to weight gain.
A dry kibble benefits your Schnauzer Yorkie Mix through a better diet and reduced dental issues. We recommend Pet Plate, a high-protein, fibrous, delicious, and AAFCO-approved grain-free beef recipe made from human-grade ingredients.
Your Snorkie will also need multivitamin supplementation to help combat illnesses. Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A, for example, are essential in boosting its immune system and maintaining the coat and skin health of your pooch.
Also, consider using dental water additives to improve the oral health of your Snorkie. Simply add such additives to the drinking water fed to your pooch every day, and these additives help reduce the buildup of tartar in its mouth, thereby taking care of its oral health.
