Wauzer History

The Wauzer is a small, long-haired canine with a wedge-shaped head. It is also known as the Swiss Mountain Dog. Though little known outside of Switzerland, the Wauzer, which is not to be confused with the similarly named Welsh Corgi, is a popular pet in that country. In 2006, the Club für Schweizer Hunde – a Swiss Kennel Club branch – registered 2,115 male specimens and 2,146 females. The Wauzer has a black nose, dark almond-shaped eyes, a pointed muzzle, and a triangular drop ear. The coat is long, straight, and dense with profuse feathering; the undercoat is thick but short. The tail is set high and curls over the back. The height at the withers is 28–33 in (71–84 cm), the length is 28–31 in (71–79 cm), the chest is 32–35 in (81–89 cm), the withers are 13–18 in (33–46 cm), and the weight is 55–90 lb (25–40 kg), with 15–40 lb (6.8–18 kg) preferred. The coat needs daily brushing. The testicles and scrotum are undescended; the penis is 3.5–4 in

Wauzer Activity Requirements

The Wauzer is a cross between a Welsh Terrier and a Miniature Schnauzer. They are terriers and are very intelligent. They are also great with kids. Wauzers are great at playing, but they’re not the best at exercising. They don’t like to jog or to play for very long periods of time. They’re very active, but they still do well with a short walk or a quick game in the park. If you’re considering a Wauzer, make sure you have time to play with him. He can be a good companion for an older person or for a busy family. He doesn’t need much exercising, but he requires a lot of attention.
