The Affenpinscher is a member of the toy family originated in Germany several centuries ago, In German, 'affe' means monkey, and the apish expression is the hallmark of these animals. They are the smallest of the pinschers and schnauzers. They are devoted to their families and are a very alert dog, which makes them an excellent watchdog.
They are very intelligent which makes them easy to train, you must make sure that they know who the boss is though, other wise they may end up running the home.

Grooming- a brushing once or twice a week will remove the dead hair and keep the coat free of knots.

Exercise- regular exercise is needed to keep them fit and happy, such as daily walks and off lead runs.
