Things to do in North Dakota with your Miniature Schnauzer

North Dakota may not be the first state that comes to mind when thinking of dog-friendly destinations, but it offers a surprising number of activities and attractions for you and your miniature schnauzer to enjoy together. From scenic hikes to charming small towns, there are plenty of things to do in North Dakota with your furry friend.


One of the best ways to explore the natural beauty of North Dakota is by embarking on a hiking adventure. The state boasts several stunning trails that welcome leashed dogs. For a scenic hike, head to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. This vast expanse of rugged terrain is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and their canine companions. The park offers a variety of trails that range in difficulty, allowing you and your miniature schnauzer to choose a path that suits your fitness level. As you hike, keep an eye out for the park’s diverse wildlife, including bison, prairie dogs, and wild horses.

Small Towns

If you and your furry friend prefer a leisurely stroll, consider visiting one of North Dakota’s charming small towns. Places like Medora and Garrison are known for their pet-friendly atmosphere, with many shops, restaurants, and accommodations welcoming well-behaved dogs. Take a leisurely walk through the town’s streets, stopping by local stores that allow dogs inside, and perhaps treat your miniature schnauzer to a special toy or treat from a pet boutique.

Outdoor Recreational Opportunities

North Dakota also offers numerous outdoor recreational opportunities for dogs and their owners. Many of the state parks allow leashed dogs on their premises, giving you the chance to enjoy activities such as boating, fishing, and picnicking together.

Spend a day by the lake, playing fetch with your miniature schnauzer on the sandy beaches, or rent a kayak and explore the calm waters.

If you are interested in a mini schnauzer I highly recommend Fernweh Miniature Schnauzers. Not only do they take your wants in a dog into consideration but they also assess the personalities of the puppies to make sure you get a puppy that will be a great fit for your family. Erica made the whole process very easy too. In fact, we were so impressed with them as breeders and love our Fernweh mini so much we’re bringing home another soon!

After a lot of research on miniature schnauzers and looking at numerous breeders both local and out of town, we found Erika and her puppies to be the top quality dog we were looking for. We were so thrilled to be able to get our little boy, Achilles, during the pandemic. He is healthy, well behaved and such a happy boy! He had a great head start on potty and crate training when we got him, so this process was very easy for him. We are very thankful for Fernweh Miniature Schnauzers and highly recommend them. We’ll definitely be reaching out when we’re ready for Achilles’ sibling 🙂

The team at Fernweh Mini Schnauzers does an incredible job of screening and working with prospective owners. They spent time talking to me about my previous Mini Schnauzer and what i was looking for. They were attentive and replied back quickly whenever I had questions. Our little Winnie is going to be 1 year old this March and we could not imagine life without her. She has brought so much energy and joy into our lives and is great with her little brother! Would highly recommend Fernweh Miniature Schnauzers

Erica did a great job with potty training our puppy and making sure the puppies were healthy. We lost one of our dogs to cancer and our Gracie seemed very depressed after that. Once we brought home Callie, she seems to be much happier. Erica made the process very easy and everything was extremely professional. I did a lot of research and Fernweh Schauzers is the most reputable place to get a dog that was bred with healthy practices.

I got my puppy in July 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. Even with all crazy stuff going on, Fernweh (Erica) was able to provide us a great experience. The puppy was well taken care of and Erica is super open to answer any question of those who are first timers, like me. The puppy brought home her litter blanket, what was wonderful and super helpful on her transition. Those "small" details that make this breeder a great and reliable one. I totally recommend them 🙂 Our puppy Scully came to complete our family <3

We couldn't be happier with our Fernweh Miniature Schnauzer. Finding Fernweh seemed like fate. We have a 13 yr old Schnauzer mix at home and last spring were feeling the pandemic would be the right time to welcome another dog to our home. We happened to meet another Fernweh pup in our neighborhood on a family walk. We immediately connected with Erica who was extremely responsive and helpful. To our luck, there was a new litter available and we were able to match the "personality" of our family to the right puppy. When we picked up Arnie, everything was so well prepared. He transitioned extremely well to our home which in addition to our older dog, includes two children, ages 8 and 10. Arnie is "their" dog and they love caring for him. Arnie has now been with us for almost 9 months and we can't imagine life without him!

Erica from Fernweh schnauzers was instrumental in the adoption of our little pup, Emma , now 7 months old. The focus on healthcare for the pups was an important aspect to our successful adoption. Erica was an amazing resource during our pups transition to our home. Emma is a healthy, active , obedient and fun loving dog which is a reflection of Fernweh’s care and concerns for their pups. I highly recommend Fernweh breeders,they’re the best!

We chose Fernweh for their breeding practices, socialization program, and health guarantees. Our questions and concerns were answered and Erica helped us choose a puppy that would best fit in with our family. We took her home in the Fall of 2020 and she is doing great. We would, and have, recommended Fernweh to anyone looking to add a mini to their family.

I am so glad that we found Fernweh Schnauzers. Erica was wonderful to work with, just like talking with your best friend. She helped us find the perfect personality in a pup that we were hoping for. Our puppy has been a fantastic addition to our family. I highly recommend working with them. They are always available for help after adoption as well. It is so easy to see how much they love and care for their pups !
