Due to the intelligence level of the Miniature Schnauzers, playtime is absolutely essential to their emotional well-being and to prevent boredom. Playtime could mean toys or a go 'bye bye' session around the neighbourhood.



Toys that will stimulate the mumus' senses are those that are made to play fetch or tug-of-war. So, the toys should be durable enough to ensure the wear and tear of rough ‘play’. There must not be parts that can come off easily or are too hard as they will hurt the mumus' teeth when they play. Suitable toys are usually made of rubber and some may even have surfaces that will be conducive for teething mumus.

Miniature Schnauzers are aggressive chewers. It is best to give strong, hard toys and minimise stuffed toys
(they will chew it until it falls apart, and eat the inside) or squeaky toys (they will chew it until it falls apart, and eat the squeaky part). However, it is ok if you watch the toys carefully, and as soon as they start to fall apart, replace them. Our mumus love toys that squeak!

DO NOT give them natural bones as they break into sharp pieces, and rawhide will turn into mushy piles.

For hygience purposes, it is recommended to split the toys into two or three piles, and put only one pile out for the mumus to play with at a time. Rotate the toys every two or three weeks and change them all out. The toys can then be washed thoroughly during this time. Rotating the dogs toys will help to keep them fresh and interesting for the mumus.

These are some of the toys that our mumus like:


Caution – during playtime, do not grab or pull toys out of mumus' mouth as that might hurt their teeth.

Miniature Schnauzers are by nature quite active and so it would be good to bring the mumus out to the park. Due to Yogi’s extra-sensitive skin, we have special carriages to take the mumus without having them touch the ground and get infected by the germs. This has happened before and we have to take every step to prevent that from ever happening again. 

Ideally, the mumus should go 'bye bye' once a week around the Haven.

What Is Needed / How To Go 'Bye Bye' ?

1. A minimum of 3 people and 2 carriages is needed to take 4 of the little mumus out.

2. 2 people will push each of the carriages while the third person needs to have a rolled up newspaper ready in case a threatening stray dog comes near.

3. Zamkar and Yogi can be in one carriage (let's say the red carriage) while Oser and Dharma can be in the other (the other
carriage is blue). The choice is to avoid conflict amongst the dogs as Oser might get aggressive with Zamkar sometimes.

4. Before going 'bye bye', the carriage floor needs to be lined with newspaper first before placing the mumus inside.

5. Ensure a bottle of water is brought along with a water bowl in case the mumus get thirsty.

6. If taking the mumus on a stroll around the Haven, ensure you stay at the side of the road and be aware of traffic. 

7. If you bring the mumus to a park, avoid crowds and people because the mumus will get very excited and bark a lot.

8. When you have returned to the Haven, release the mumus into the Buddha Garden and have lots of water in their water bowls.

9. Let the mumus pee and poo and when they are done, clean their paws and let them back indoors. 

10. They will be sleepy and ready for bed after that.

Cleaning & Maintenance of Carriages

1. Upon return from a walk, throw the soiled newspaper away. 

2. Wipe it with a damp cloth and leave the carriage under the sun to remove the pee and poo odour. 

3. Then, wipe the carriage thoroughly from the top and down all the way to the wheels. 

4. Once its dry, you can fold it and store it away in the store room underneath the stairs in the Haven.

This open area, created specially for the mumus, is next to the house at the Haven. It has a running area and safety glass around the parameters. There is a mini-obstacle course created with overturned pots, potted plants, big butterlamps filled with continuous candle offerings, a stupa and Holy Buddhas (currently: Manjushri, Nageswara, and Fasting Buddha).

It is a space Yogi, Oser, Dharma and Zamkar can play in, enjoy fresh air, run around, sniff around, get some sunlight and generally relax. As there are blessed Buddha statues and stupas, when they run around they will circumambulate around these holy objects and plant seeds of enlightenment in their minds. The consecrated Buddha statues/stupa are filled with mantras, sutras and many Buddha images.


Always switch on the 3 ceiling fans and the fan on the floor when the mumus go out to run around the garden.
Always make sure the water bowl is filled and placed outside near the entrance at the garden.
