What fun we have at the Minneapolis Pet Expo every year!

Great thanks to the club members and their dogs who come out to help man the booth, do a bit of grooming, and talk to the crowds over the two-day event.

Stop by and say hello!

There was a Schnauzer Walk around Lake Harriet in Minneapolis on Sunday, Oct. 24th, 2010, in conjunction with the Heartland Standard Schnauzer Club. We had a GREAT time!

All the Schnauzers and their owners just before the walk started.

Schnauzers, Schnauzers, SCHNAUZERS!!! Miniature, Standard, or Giant... All were welcomed at our very first Schnauzer Walk on May 17, 2014, in Minneapolis. We met at the Lake Harriet Bandshell at 10am, and then walked around the lake together. It was lots of fun!!!

Dagney in PouchAn exhausted Terra near the end of the day.

We have a Demonstration Team that gives talks and demos (obedience, grooming, etc.) about the Miniature Schnauzer.

We were busy with "meeting and greeting" at the Pet Fest at the Renaissance Festival on Sept. 12 and 13, 2009, and with "Meet the Breeds" at the AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day on Sept. 19, 2009, at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Karen and Ace even participated in several agility demonstrations throughout the two days at the Pet Fest. Our thanks to Karen and Katie Brittan with Ace and Cruise, Corri Gilbertson and Talis, and Judy Robinson and Jimmy for helping with this.
