BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Standard Schnauzer is the oldest of the three Schnauzer breeds. It originally came from Germany. The word Schnauze itself comes from the German word muzzle. These brave dogs were used as messengers in World War I, as vermin hunters, as well guard dogs. It is now more commonly trained a herder and retriever.

COLOR
The Standard Schnauzer is pure black or salt and pepper.

COAT
The coat is tight, hard, strong and wiry. The outer coat is trimmed to accentuate the body outline. The undercoat is soft and dense.

PERSONALITY
The Standard Schnauzer is fearless and protective, which makes it a great guard dog; it defends its territory and its family using its deep barking. It is very lively, intelligent and playful which results in a very affectionate pet for the family.

CARE
The outer coat is easy to take care of, but the undercoat is very dense and needs to be brushed weekly. The Standard Schnauzer should be professionally trimmed at least four times a year. The eyes and the ears should be trimmed with a blunt-nosed scissor. After meals, the whiskers should be washed. This Schnauzer doesn't smell and barely sheds during season because of the nature of it?s coat.

TRAINING
The Standard Schnauzer is very intelligent and learns easily. However it can be very stubborn and needs a firm training. As puppies, socialization is an important aspect of the pet?s development.

ACTIVITY
The Standard Schnauzer is a very energetic dog that will take as much exercise as it can get. Activities can range from a swim to intense play as long as they get at least an hour a day.
