Things to do in Virginia with your Miniature Schnauzer

Virginia, the Old Dominion state, is a fantastic destination to explore with your miniature schnauzer. With its rich history, stunning natural landscapes, and pet-friendly attractions, Virginia offers a wide array of activities for you and your furry friend to enjoy together.

Parks and Trails

One of the top things you can do with your miniature schnauzer in Virginia is to visit the state’s pet-friendly parks and trails. The Shenandoah National Park, located in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, features over 500 miles of trails. While dogs are not permitted on most of the park’s trails, they are welcome on the park’s fire roads, including the popular Skyline Drive. Take a leisurely drive along this scenic route and stop at the designated overlooks to enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains.

State Parks

Virginia is also home to numerous state parks that cater to outdoor enthusiasts and their pets. For example, the First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach offers pet-friendly camping, beach access, and hiking trails. The park is an excellent place for your miniature schnauzer to enjoy the sand and surf while exploring the beautiful coastal scenery. Other pet-friendly state parks include Pocahontas State Park near Richmond and Belle Isle State Park along the Rappahannock River.


If you prefer urban adventures, Virginia’s cities have plenty to offer you and your four-legged companion. Historic towns like Williamsburg and Fredericksburg boast charming streets lined with pet-friendly shops, restaurants, and cafes. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the cobblestone streets and stop for a bite to eat at one of the many outdoor dining areas that welcome dogs. While in Williamsburg, you can even take your miniature schnauzer for a walk through the picturesque Colonial Williamsburg, where historic reenactments and beautifully preserved buildings await.


For a taste of city life, head to the state capital, Richmond. The city offers several pet-friendly parks and trails, including the popular James River Park System. This expansive park spans over 550 acres and provides scenic trails along the James River, where you and your furry friend can enjoy a peaceful walk or hike. Additionally, Richmond has a vibrant brewery and restaurant scene, many of which have outdoor seating areas that accommodate dogs.


If you and your miniature schnauzer enjoy the beach, Virginia’s coastline is a great place to visit. Virginia Beach has a designated dog-friendly beach area known as “Bayville Farms Park Dog Beach.” Here, your furry friend can run freely along the shore and take a refreshing dip in the ocean. Just remember to follow the beach’s regulations regarding dogs and keep them on a leash when required.

Chincoteague Island

Another pet-friendly coastal destination is Chincoteague Island, known for its wild ponies and beautiful beaches. Take your miniature schnauzer for a stroll along the pristine shores of Assateague Island National Seashore, which allows leashed dogs in certain areas. You can also explore the island’s nature trails together, keeping an eye out for wildlife and enjoying the serene surroundings.

Traveling in Virginia with your Miniature Schnauzer

When traveling with your miniature schnauzer in Virginia, it’s important to be prepared for the weather conditions.

In conclusion, Virginia offers a plethora of activities for you and your miniature schnauzer to enjoy together.

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 !
