Over the last 20 years we have "been owned" by six Min PIns, three of whom are still alive. Our oldest one, the year old "Mr. Mel", died of old age just yesterday 27 August, During these years we have read four books about dogs; we were looking for a Min Pin specific book and downloadd this one from site.
We enjoyed the chapter organization, the plethora of photos and lots of specific information about our quadruped family members. The only chapter we just skimmed through was one on show dogs since we don't do that. I would recommend Bobbye Land's book to any Min Pin owner since it begins with the advisability of owning a Min Pin, bringing one home and enjoying this little canine's company all the way through old age and finally saying "Good-bye" as we did yesterday to Mr.
You MUST understand their characteristics. They are fast and agile.

If you have or are getting a Miniature Pinscher, this will be very helpful. One person found this helpful. This is not one of those breed-specific books that has about 4 pages about the breed and then the rest of it is generic dog information. This is about the MinPin all the way through.
It has lovely pictures and sensible, useful advice for every situation.
With this book, you don't need another. A very helpful book in learning the ins and outs of this awesome breed.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get information on the book. Lots of great information and the DVD is really helpful. Was very helpful to me when I had just gotten my 5 year old min pin. There are more than color photographs in this compact, useful, and reliable volume.
The author's advice on obedience training the bright Min Pin will help readers better mold and train their pets to be the most socialized, well-mannered dogs in the neighborhood. The extensive chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more, which is followed by a chapter on caring for the senior dog.
Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed. Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x x 8.

If you want a dog who Looks like a tiny, elegant Doberman Has a short easy-care coat Is energetic and "busy" — frequently on the go Is feisty and assertive, not a submissive lap dog Makes a keen watchdog A Miniature Pinscher may be right for you.
If you don't want to deal with A dynamic dog who always seems to be observing and planning what to do next Providing enough exercise and activities to keep them busy Destructiveness when bored Potential aggression toward other animals — chasing instincts Potential escape attempts and running away from you Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge Notorious housebreaking difficulties Barking A Miniature Pinscher may not be right for you.
Keep in mind that the inheritance of temperament is less predictable than the inheritance of physical traits such as size or shedding. Temperament and behavior are also shaped by raising and training. With an adult dog, you can easily see what you're getting, and plenty of adult Miniature Pinschers have already proven themselves not to have negative characteristics.
If you want a puppy, you can avoid some negative traits by choosing the right breeder and the right puppy. Unfortunately, you usually can't tell whether a puppy has inherited temperament or health problems until he grows up.
Providing enough exercise and mental stimulation. Miniature Pinschers are active go-getters who need regular opportunities to vent their energy and to use their busy minds to do interesting things. Bored Min Pins can be noisy and destructive.
This breed is an interesting choice for an experienced owner who wants to participate with a smart little dog in agility classes obstacle course for dogs or in ongoing obedience classes at the intermediate or advanced level. It's not a good choice for novice owners who just want a quiet little pet.
Standoffish by nature, Miniature Pinschers need extensive exposure to people and to unusual sights and sounds. Otherwise their natural caution can become extreme suspiciousness. Many Min Pins will put on a display of excited ferociousness i. It sounds cute and funny, but it's not. If you don't curtail it, your Min Pin may end up suspicious of everyone in the world, which is a short step to aggression.
I do not recommend Miniature Pinschers for homes with small children. Min Pin puppies can be injured by even a well-meaning child who accidentally steps on, or falls over, the puppy. Some Min Pin adults can feel overwhelmed by the loud voices and quick movements of children. And some adults won't tolerate any nonsense and are quick to react to teasing. Many Miniature Pinschers are possessive of their food and toys and will defend these from all comers, including children.
