It is not simply puppy placement – it is the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship between man and his best friend.


Breed Summary

Schnauzers are of German descent. They are medium-sized working dogs that were originally assigned jobs in herding and guarding – roles which they have subconsciously carried throughout the ages. Today, Schnauzer Dog breed info sites categorize this dog as a working breed. Because of their supreme intellect and affectionate nature, dogs of this breed are often enlisted in search-and-rescue parties, bomb-detection squads and even service groups that aid the physically and mentally disabled.

It is hard to miss the most prominent Schnauzer characteristic, which is their bushy beard. It is present in both male and female dogs and it is their crowning glory. These dogs are often brimming with energy. They can go on long, rigorous walks everyday and would still want to play at the end of the day. You can take a look at our “Facts and Information” section for additional information on Schnauzers.

If you have set your sights on Schnauzer adoption, then you could expect a smooth and effortless process with our help. We will deal with all the mind-numbing details and the meticulous paperwork – all you have to do is accept your perfectly matched Schnauzer puppies into your life. Please refer to our “Happy Puppy Placement” section for more details on the placement process.

We will make sure that the puppies our network of Schnauzer breeders will provide are both healthy and possess a temperament that matches your own. By doing this, your new pup will not only become a new member of your family, he will also become an irreplaceable part of your life.


Facts - Overview

The most basic Schnauzer breed info you need to know is the meaning of their name–which is German for “snout.” This is in reference to their characteristic thick mustache, which is a perfect match to their prominent brows. All dogs of this breed come in gray-scale coats, ranging from solid black to salt and pepper.

Schnauzers make a perfect match for people with active lifestyles. They are very energetic and are capable of going on hour-long hikes without showing as much as a hint of fatigue. They are also excellent at canine sports. This breed is very agile and excels in herding, rally and tracking. But they also have a softer side. The Schnauzer is known to be great with children. They are very gentle and patient and can babysit tots – under the supervision of an adult, of course.

Because schnauzers have double coats, the loose fur and dead hair are often trapped in the undercoat. It is for this very reason that Schnauzers are not recommended for aspiring dog owners with asthma, allergies or for those who doesn’t want to get dog hairs all over the place.

The Schnauzer is a thinking dog and therefore needs as much mental exercise as he needs a physical work out. You have to constantly give him mentally challenging duties to prevent this pooch from getting bored and breeding destruction in the house – the German way. We’re not talking about puzzles or riddles, we are referring to playtime. You can have this pup fetch a ball, teach him some tricks, involve him in family activities or give him a job (e.g. getting the newspaper).

The Schnauzer could get a little protective of his family and may be aggressive towards strangers. Early socialization and positive reinforcement should prevent such a behavior from arising. He could also be quite a handful to keep tidy especially after eating. You have to clean its precious beard every after meal because it will drip water or get messy.

With their protective, diligent and affectionate nature, who wouldn’t fall in love with this breed? In fact, breeders liked the Schnauzer dog breed so much that they decided to make 2 more versions that are his splitting image. Now all three of them can form a group called “The Three Schnozes” and fight against the forces of evil, but that’s another story. 


Facts - Personality

Although each pup has a distinctive personality of his own, each breed does have a distinctive set of character traits that is apparent to all pooches of that variety. The Schnauzer personality, in particular, has more layers than his fur. This breed is filled with courageous, loyal and loving dogs that will stay by your side no matter what. Here is a closer view of what goes on inside all that furry cuteness:

Intelligent: Schnauzers are quick to understand instruction and can easily learn new commands. In fact, this breed needs to constantly be presented with mental challenges, otherwise they will get bored. If you don’t give them a job to do, they will assign one to themselves – that’s how smart these dogs are.

Spirited: There is not a single dull moment with this dog. They are brimming with and have almost limitless supply of energy. They are also comedians and will entertain you with their mischievous yet adorable antics.

Protective: This aspect of the Schnauzer temperament could probably root back to the early beginnings of the breed, where they were initially assigned with the job of personal guardians who watched over merchants as they traveled towards the market. As such, Schnauzers make excellent guard dogs. They are determined to protect their family and the ones they love at all costs. As a result, this breed may tend to act unfriendly towards strangers. Early socialization will fix this problem.

Loyal: Schnauzers stay steadfast in their love and devotion to their family. The moment they start loving someone, that person will forever become an important part of their lives. 


Facts - Care

Schnauzer puppy care should include training as early as its 8th week of life. Since this breed is intelligent and easily trainable, it can learn good manners early on. It is unwise to wait until its 6th month of life to commence its training regimen as these pups could get a little headstrong and become slightly hardheaded. You have to become a firm and consistent leader to earn the Schnauzer’s respect.

Since this breed may tend to become hostile towards strangers due to their ‘guard dog’ nature, be sure to include early socialization in Schnauzer training. Take them out for walks and allow them to meet different people and animals to develop their friendly nature.

Be sure to walk your dog several times a day for at least 20 minutes each session. Or you could opt to take him on an hour-long hike in areas of high altitude such as mountains. They have a lot of pent up energy and it takes extra effort to meet their exercise needs. This is also a way to prevent their destructive nature from arising.

Proper Schnauzer care during their formative years (which is the 1st year of life) will allow your dog to grow into a pleasant and balanced canine companion. 


Facts - Grooming

Appearance

These medium-sized, big-boned dogs all come with a distinctive bushy mustache that cascades over their strong muzzles – one that has been present since puppyhood. Talk about early puberty. This is matched with a characteristic beard and bushy eyebrows which all contribute to their infamously rugged look.

Their rectangular heads should be highlighted by dark brown, oval-shaped eyes. Their ears are perky but bend forward, forming an inverted triangle shape and their tails, which may be long or docked, are carried high.

Coat and Color

These canines wear a double coat that is thick and soft on the inside but rough and wiry on the outside, making Schnauzer grooming easy and undemanding. Their wiry fur should be around ¾ to 2 in. long. These wire-haired pups comes in a monochromatic scheme, ranging from a combination of salt and pepper (with a gray or fawn-colored undercoat) or in solid black.

Size and Weight

The standard schnauzer stands at around 17 to 20 inches tall and weighs up to 30 lbs.

Grooming Needs

Schnauzers only need to be bathed once every 5 to 8 weeks and have their fur brushed at least twice or thrice a week to get rid of all the dead hairs that are trapped within their undercoat. Their beard, however, may need to be combed every day.

The ears need to be checked for wax buildup or signs of infection every day. Just a quick look will do. To clean them, use a dry cotton ball to gently wipe the excess ear wax at the external ear canal. Do not use cotton swabs. The nails only need to be clipped on a monthly basis and their teeth should be brushed once per week.

Although the Schnauzer has an effortless and completely natural charm, the same thing couldn’t be said about their trademark look. You have to manually trim the fur around their chest, ears, tail, head, stomach and neck to make their bushy brows and beard more prominent. You can enlist the aid of professionals who know how to groom Schnauzer breeds because it could get a little tricky and could take up a lot of your time. 


Facts - Health

Schnauzers can live for an average of 13 to 16 years – that’s pretty long for a dog. This is a clear reflection of the stability of Schnauzer health as well as its resilience and strength.

The most basic care you could render to your dog is vaccination. Set a schedule for deworming and anti-rabies vaccination, booster shots and the like. Doing so will prevent your pup from attaining some of the most common and dangerous canine ailments.

As for Schnauzer nutrition, be sure to feed your dog a well twice a day. Make sure that he or she has a well balanced diet. Consult your veterinarian for the proper meal portions. Moreover, since obesity is a common canine problem, do make sure to give your dog regular exercise.

Lastly and most importantly, don’t forget to have your dog regularly checked up on by a veterinarian. This is to ensure that your dog is not suffering from illnesses that are not easily detectable. This will also allow our vet to apply immediate intervention during the early progression of a medical condition. In the Schnauzer’s case, the most common ailments this breed suffers from are hip dysplacia, cataracts and follicular dermatitis. These are easily preventable and curable with proper and timely health maintenance of your precious pooch. 


Facts - History

The history of Schnauzer breeds is as ancient as their look. It all dates back to the 15th century in Bavaria, Germany. The Standard Schnauzer, whose name is German for “nose” or “snout,” was originally made for the life in the countryside where they were tasked to chase vermin out of the farm, herd sheep and cattle, and protect merchants as they make their merry way to the market. They were extremely smart, loyal and brave.

Schnauzers are said to be a mix of Poodle, Spitz and Pinscher so you know where they get all their feistiness from. Their fur was originally solid black. Their flavorful coat, salt and pepper, was attained by breeding their ancestors with a gray-furred Wolfspitz and a black-coated German Poodle. Dog enthusiasts liked the Standard Schnauzer so much that, during the late 1800s, they bred two more varieties of this pooch – a smaller version and a bigger version.

The Schnauzers found their way into the Northern American continent in the early 1900s but it was not until 1904 that the American Kennel Club recognized them as an official breed. They were originally classified as Terriers but were later dubbed as Working Dogs in 1945.

Not much has changed in Schnauzer history – that is, except for their job description. They are often used as search-and-rescue dogs, therapy dogs, bomb-detecting dogs, and service dogs for the physically impaired. They have evolved from being herding and guardian dogs to working dogs and household companions. They are just as brave, protective and loyal as they originally were. However, modern versions of this breed are packed with an extra dose of affection.
