More details about the Austrian Pinscher

Austrian Pinscher: Origins and history

The Austrian Pinscher originates from Austria (duh!) towards the end of the 19th century. Farmers wanted a dog which could act as a watchdog as well as keep their property and land free of mice and rats - and as you’ve read, they definitely got what they wanted! This smart and intelligent pup was finally recognised as a breed in 1928.

FCI classification of the Austrian Pinscher

  • Group 2 - Pinscher and Schnauzer - Molossoid and Swiss Mountain and Cattledogs

  • Section 1 : Pinscher and Schnauzer type

Training a Austrian Pinscher

Due to the Austrian Pinscher’s natural dominance and independence, they can be difficult to train. They need a confident, experienced trainer and consistent training sessions from a young age. If this breed thinks it can get its own way, it could become bossy and impossible to handle.

Austrian Pinscher: Purchase price

Though they’re hard to find in the UK, we’d expect an Austrian Pinscher puppy to cost between £500 and £1,000.
