BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Standard Schnoodle is a cross of the Poodle and the Standard Schnauzer. Both breeds are German in origin, but while the Poodle was originally used in hunting and retrieving, the Standard Schnauzer comes from herding breeds, and is a good guard dog as well. The Poodle was a favorite of European royalty, and because of its natural agility and high intelligence, is prized as a show dog. It is also known for the stylishness of its clips, although the oldest of these were actually develop to enable the Poodle to hunt better and yet retain warmth and protection over its vital organs. The Standard Schnoodle is actually the older among three Schnauzer breeds. It has been a popular dog in Europe, used in hunting, ratting, guarding, and all-around work. With a hard, wiry coat and a beard, it is easy to mistake it for a terrier, but the Standard Schnauzer is a different breed altogether. Breed historians peg contributing lines from the Poodle and German Pinscher.

COLOR
The Standard Schnoodle has a largely solid-colored coat, which is the standard in both its parents. However, an salt-and-pepper coat will have come exclusively from the Standard Schnauzer. Solid colors usually are black, silver, gray, brown, white, cream, and blue. Parti-coloring can occur, with various percentages of white in the coat, along with another solid color.

COAT
The Standard Schnoodle's coat, which is its primary protection against weather elements, can range in texture from coarse and rough to soft and woolly. The Standard Schnauzer will contribute a stiff, wiry coat, while the Poodle has its trademark curls.

PERSONALITY
The Standard Schnoodle is an intelligent, highly energetic dog that, trained properly, can be depended upon to do quite a number of things. It is alert and attentive, and can stand watch over a family, giving impressive sound to an alarm if needed. It can be patient and tolerant of children, and have a generally stable temperament that enables it to get along well with all members of the household, including other pets. It is highly sociable and confident, and will perform for its owner or in front of an audience. Love of attention and unpredictability means this dog will get bored if left alone often or not stimulated enough.

CARE
Shedding is perceived as minimal, but the Standard Schnoodle does shed, at most twice a year. Hand-stripping is best, even if it is tedious, as this will clear the old fur away without changing the texture of the on coming in. Regular grooming is a must for this breed, something an owner must take into consideration.

TRAINING
A young Standard Schnoodle will have lots of energy and will need patience on the owner's part. Obedience training and socialization are a must, as well as daily walks or bouts of active fun to stimulate it and expend extra energy. Even at a mature age. the Standard Schnauzer will thrive on regular activity that is not repetitive, and keeps it mentally as well as physically stimulated.

ACTIVITY
The Standard Schnoodle will be good with urban spaces, provided daily exercise is taken. This dog, with working and performing in its bloodlines, is happiest when given something to do. A bored Standard Schnauzer will look for ways to amuse itself, and will often become destructive around the house. Long walks or jogs are ideal, as well as occasional changes of scenery, and vigorous activities, like Frisbee.
