Standard Schnauzer...


The Standard Schnauzer is the original breed of the three breeds of Schnauzer, and despite its wiry coat and general appearance, is not related to the British terriers. Rather, its origins are in old herding and guard breeds of Europe. The breed is a robust, squarely built, medium-sized dog with aristocratic bearing, making it a popular subject of painters Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt. These energetic dogs will take as much exercise as they can get and they just love play sessions. Clever, intelligent, demanding, and playful, Standard Schnauzers need companionship and are good dogs to travel with. The Standard Schnauzer is a good dog for apartment life.

The Standard Schnauzer has a stiff, wiry coat that sheds little to no hair and has no offensive dog odor. The wiry coat is reasonably easy to look after, but the undercoat is dense and it will become matted unless it is combed or brushed daily with a short wire brush. A short wire brush should be used daily, and the whiskers cleaned after meals. Hair around the eyes and ears should be kept trimmed, and an all-over clipping is usually required in the spring and fall.
