Potty training your Schnauzer:

The method that worked for me was crate training, and by 6 months my dogs no longer had to use the crate. I also took my puppy out about every 30 mins and anytime after they ate, drank, woke up, or played. I would go from every 30 min to every 45 mins as they got older, etc. When purchasing a crate make sure it is comfortable and use soft, washable liners or dog blankets. You also wanna make sure that the puppy only has enough room to stand up and turn around comfortably. If you give a Schnauzer more room then this , then they will most likely use the restroom on one side and sleep on the opposite side. I recommend buying a crate that will be big enough for when they get older, yet grows with the puppy. (has a divider) I never used puppy pads, to me it made me feel like I was telling them its ok to go potty in the house as long as you do it here... Just a few things to help out. Let us know your best potty training methods!

As we had to go to work 2 days after we got our puppy I thought it wasn't fair to leave him crated. I bought a puppy pen and put that around the crate. It had paper in one corner incase he couldn't wait till we came home....max 3 hours. Any accidents I cleaned throughly with bleach free cleaner. When we were there we did same as Braylynn suggested. Also if he sniffed floor he went out. We always went out with him and made like we won the lottery when he went. He was trained within 4 weeks.
