  • Any brave groomer want to try Fritz the naughty schnauzer?

    Any body want to give Fritz a try? He hails from Cream Ridge, NJ. I just cannot go any further with him. 3 grooms ago he went into a death roll in the tub, snapping the whole time - nearly popped his eyeballs out! Next time, I could only shave him (#7) and barely got his face done while keeping my hands. Oh, btw, nooooo dryer! Now, today was the kicker - nothing. Came at me teeth bared when I tried to do his cheeks with a bravura. Funny thing is - his litter mate is the chocolate male that I competed with in Intergroom. I just don't get it! They have been coming to me since they were 6 months old - now Fritz is untouchable. I want to make sure that he is maybe just having a problem with me before she goes to the vet for a shavedown while under drugs. Any takers?

    NJ you say? That's weird... we have a St. Schnauzer named Fritz up here in Alberta, Canada who also happens to be kinda evil. Doesn't sound as bad as yours ^_~

      HMMM, Have you talked to the owner about this sudden behavior change? Does he exhibit any signs of blindness? I have known schnauzers to go blind by 2. Have they had him examined by the vet, had head xrays or ct? sudden behavior like that, I would think a seizure or other neurological misfire. And the subsequent problems could be residul effects from the fright he had. I have done some nasty schnauzers, but if you have been doing this dog since 6 months, listen to your instincts that something is wrong. Don't just hand him off to another groomer.

              Well, if you listen to the owner - this is not sudden behavior change. He is a viscious little guy - don't come near him! I don't know the reason for our little bond - I can hold him, kiss him, he licks my face, but just don't groom him. He really is not nice, but I think that a real schnauzer person might be able to handle him. I told them to call the breeder - ship him back to whence he came for a while - I bet she'll be able to do something with him.

                I knew a dog who ended up at the pound.........

                The dog wasn't a schnauzer but after a few days in the [pokie he was reformed! Forever after he didn't try to run away and he was ok to groom. maybe this schnauzer needs to visit Paris....and I don't mean the city in France.hahaSchnauzers have attitude whether good or bad and if nhen has been getting worse he could be feeling bad and also getting ....no he is now wild. Stuborn is a schnauzer. Vet visit required.

                  I also have a schnauzer here named Fritz who has been banned from every shop in town, my mobile included. I wonder if the name has something to do with it?

                    I groom one named Fritz too, but he is just a love. He never does anything naughty. When he gets here he runs up to the door barking like he is saying "hey I'm here let me in". LOL.

                      Hmmm, if the breeder is breeding chocolates (against AKC standards) it makes me wonder how much she'd care if she knew she's also breeding some nasty temperaments, or how much help you'd likely get from one who breeds exotic colors against the recognized standards.

                        Has the owner ruled at an illness? Is he maybe in pain--neck? Back? Is he neutered? But you can keep him in New Jersey. We have enough sedations where I'm at, thank you. :-)

                            WWCD?

                            What would Ceasar do? More than likely the dog learned that behaving like a raving lunatic would get him out of grooming, brushing, who knows what else at home. Only a brave calm and assertive trainer can help him now. A breeder is not a dog trainer (usually). The owner needs to find someone to help her train Fritzie before he transfers his aggression on a child or another groomer even.

                              Fritz must be a popular name for Schnauzers, because I groom a min. Schnauzer "Fritz" too. I don't think he qualifies for the psycho award, but he certainly has his moments.
