Things to do in Rhode Island with your Miniature Schnauzer

Rhode Island, the smallest state in the United States, may be small in size, but it offers big opportunities for you and your miniature schnauzer to explore and have fun together. Known as the “Ocean State,” Rhode Island boasts beautiful coastal scenery, charming towns, and numerous dog-friendly activities that make it an ideal destination for dog owners.


One of the top things you can do with your miniature schnauzer in Rhode Island is to visit the state’s stunning beaches. The coastline stretches for approximately 400 miles, providing plenty of options for seaside adventures. Many beaches in Rhode Island allow dogs during certain times of the year, typically in the off-season or restricted areas. Be sure to check the local regulations before heading out. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the sandy shores, play fetch, or let your furry friend take a dip in the refreshing ocean waves.


The city of Newport is a must-visit destination for dog owners. Known for its historic mansions and picturesque waterfront, Newport offers a variety of pet-friendly activities. Take a walk along the Cliff Walk, a scenic pathway that stretches for 3.5 miles and offers breathtaking views of the ocean and magnificent mansions. Most of the Cliff Walk is dog-friendly, but be aware that there are some areas where dogs are not permitted for safety reasons.

Historic Sites

While in Newport, explore the historic charm of the city’s downtown area. Many shops and boutiques have dog-friendly policies, allowing you to browse and shop with your furry friend by your side. Afterward, enjoy a meal or a refreshing drink at one of the pet-friendly restaurants and cafes scattered throughout the city.

State Parks

If you and your miniature schnauzer enjoy exploring nature, visit one of Rhode Island’s beautiful state parks. Colt State Park, located in Bristol, offers stunning waterfront views, open fields, and picturesque trails where you can hike or have a picnic with your pup. Lincoln Woods State Park, located in Lincoln, provides scenic woodland trails and a lake where your miniature schnauzer can cool off during the hot summer months. Make sure to keep your dog on a leash and respect the park’s rules and regulations to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.


For a taste of history and culture, a visit to Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, is a must. Explore the historic Benefit Street, lined with beautifully preserved 18th-century homes. Although dogs are not allowed inside the homes, you can take a leisurely walk along the street and admire the architectural beauty of the area. The city also offers pet-friendly parks where your miniature schnauzer can stretch their legs and socialize with other dogs.

Events and Festivals

Rhode Island is home to several dog-friendly events and festivals throughout the year. One popular event is the Providence Animal Rescue League’s “Woofstock,” a festival that celebrates dogs and raises funds for animal welfare. The event features various activities, live music, and a dog costume contest. It’s a great opportunity to have a fun-filled day with your miniature schnauzer while supporting a good cause.


If you and your pup are interested in history, visit the historic town of Pawtucket and take a guided tour of Slater Mill, the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. While dogs are not allowed inside the mill, you can explore the surrounding area and enjoy a walk along the Blackstone River Greenway, a scenic bike path that follows the river’s edge.

In conclusion, Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but it offers a wide range of activities and attractions for dog owners and their miniature schnauzers. Whether you’re exploring the beautiful beaches, strolling through historic towns, or enjoying the state’s natural landscapes, you’re sure to create lasting memories with your furry friend in this charming New England destination.

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 !
