We have 2 male Miniature schnauzers age 10 & 1. During a 30 min / 3/4 mile walk on (separate individual) leads, typically they stop, sniff & mark every 10 yards. Sometimes even more frequently. I am pretty sure this is not normal. Or rather it has become normal because we have allowed. We are probably our own worst enemies as we have allowed it since the older dog was born and are now allowing it with the younger Dog. I was wondering if there is any advice out there re Miniature schnauzers in terms of how we can start to manage their sniffing better going forward ? Are we being cruel or selfish by looking to reduce their sniffing ? If they need a pee, do they empty their bladder with the very first pee or are they saving it up and spreading their pee across the entire walk ie after every sniff ? Should we allow it perhaps for the first couple of minutes or sniffs and then stop it thereafter? Is there a specific command or action we should use? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
