Dog Breeds

  • Standard Schnauzer

    Standard Schnauzers are medium-sized, heavy-set dogs that sport a rugged and sturdy build.

  • Care

    Regular grooming will keep your Schnauzer looking their best. Once a week, you should wash their beard and leg furnishings and check in between their footpads for any foreign material. Dental care and nail trims should also be part of your grooming routine.

    This energetic breed loves to play with its people and other dogs. Schnauzers don't like being left alone, and they may act out in response. These dogs thrive on being a part of every family activity and adventure. Standard Schnauzers also seem to enjoy dog sports—such as agility, tracking, herding, retrieving, rally, and competitive obedience.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
