The Kennel Club breed standard describes the Min Pin’s temperament as ‘fearless and alert’ and says that ‘he is lively and high-spirited with quick reactions, and has a keen sense of hearing which makes him a good little guard dog’. The Min Pin is certainly an active dog. He likes to be busy and tends to be very curious. This means that it is very important to ensure that you do not leave small objects within reach of your Min Pin (and never underestimate the lengths he may go to to get hold of something he has his eye on!). It is essential to ensure that your garden is secure with no small gaps in or under fences. Also take great care when opening doors or windows as your Min Pin can slip through in a flash. He enjoys going out for walks, although a coat may be a good idea in cold weather. He should always be taken out on a lead until he has been trained to return to you on command and therefore an extending lead can prove to be a useful purchase. The Min Pin is bright and intelligent and some people have enjoyed considerable success with their Min Pins at both obedience and agility. He does have a mind of his own, however, so a patient and persistent trainer is essential! A Min Pin can make a delightful companion for an adult or child as long as he is treated with respect. Children must not be allowed to grab at him, hit him or treat him roughly in any way. A full-grown Min Pin is still a very small dog and while he can bounce around from sofa to chair to floor with ease, dropping him from the same sofa could well result in injury.
