Cuddly, fluffy, and playful, a Schnoodle is another great companion dog to have around. They are known for their calm temperament, high intelligence, and hypoallergenic coats. Schnoodles are a designer breed that is a cross between Schnauzer and Poodle. Depending on the size of its parents, their sizes also vary. These plushy-like dogs are commonly seen as happy dogs, who enjoy playing and being around their owners and their family. No matter what lifestyle you lead, a Schnoodle can match it. They make for great walking or jogging buddies who like to exercise and be active in general.
Loyal like a Schnauzer and loving like a Poodle, they also make for great watchdogs and are protective of their owners. They can immediately alert you of strangers or strange noises through their barking (that can be toned down and trained while they’re young). Some of them may be stubborn, some of them are independent, but once you win their love and trust, they can be incredibly affectionate. They love being around people, kids, and other dogs as well. Be sure to train them at a young age to be careful around kids and other dogs so they can properly socialize with them.
The Schnoodle loves being active and does well with daily exercise and activities to keep them mentally and physically stimulated. If not properly trained and given attention, they may become bored and destructive. Aside from that, they can also adapt to their living spaces. They are best not to be left alone for long periods of time, so make sure to keep them entertained with toys. Like with designer cross-breeds, you’ll never know what personality, size, and temperament you might get, but at the end of the day, your home will be filled with love and laughter with a Schnoodle in it.
Originally developed in the 1980s, Schnoodles came to be due to the demand for low-allergen types of breeds. During that time, it was common to cross-breed Poodles with other breeds to find the perfect breed they were looking for. One of the parents, Schnauzer, comes from a history of duck and other small animals hunters. To this day, the demand for this designer breed continues to grow.
Schnoodle Puppies Personality
As with designer breeds, their temperament and personality of them vary depending on their parents and the environment they grew up in. But you get the best of both worlds with them, the Schnoodle has the energy and intelligence of a Poodle and the loyalty and quick-to-learn skills from a Schnauzer. They can be chill but at the same time fun to be around with. Schnoodles love to play around and are easy to train as well. You can also discover them to be quite funny sometimes; quirky and playful that thrives under the attention of their owners. Like with other pups, early socialization and training is a must to ensure that your dog grows up behaved and well-rounded.
Because Schnauzers and Poodles come in different sizes, your Schnoodle can grow into different sizes maximum as an adult. Cross a toy poodle and a miniature schnauzer, and you’ll get a toy Schnoodle. Generally, they stand around 10-26 in height and weigh around 5-70 pounds. Miniature poodles are the most common and will weigh around 10-20 pounds. Aside from their size, their appearance varies depending on the dominant trait of their parents. They may get curly or wavy coats that barely sheds, making them ideal for those with fur allergies. Moreover, their fur colours can be a mix of black, gray, silver, gold, brown, tan, cream, sable, and white.
How to Care Schnoodle Puppies: Grooming & Basic Needs
Whether their fur turns out to be wavy or curly, the maintenance of their coats may come with a bit of a challenge, despite being low shedding. A Schnoodle’s coat grows constantly, so frequent trimming and grooming is a must. The longer their coat is, the more times you need to brush them to prevent tangles and mats. In between keeping their coats trimmed and in shape, regular brushing should be in the routine to keep their fur shiny and smooth. They also require frequent baths to keep both their coat and skin healthy. Be sure to also keep their ears cleaned, nails trimmed, and teeth brushed.
Schnoodles are not fussy companions and adapt well to their living environment. They are excellent lapdogs who love to lounge with their owners after a good exercising session. If you have other dogs in the house, they can easily warm up to them and cohabitate with them.
Schnoodle Common Health Condition / Training / Nutrition
The Schnoodle has an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years, sometimes longer for smaller varieties. Keep their health at optimum by making sure their required vaccinations are given on time and taking them on yearly check-ups. They may also inherit some health issues from Schnauzers and Poodles, such as liver problems and joint concerns. It’s important to keep an eye out for any health issues your pup might face.
As active breeds, they require daily exercise and stimulation. 30 to 60 minutes of any activity is enough to keep them happy and satisfied for the day. When it comes to training, they are fast learners once you figure out the best way to motivate them – be it by treats, praise, or both.
Lastly, when it comes to feeding them, the amount of kibbles or wet food given to them should correspond to their weight to avoid overfeeding and the risk of being overweight. You may consult with your veterinarian to know the proper amount of dog food to be given and for the recommended nutrition to give your dog. Be sure to replace their drinking water daily to keep them fresh and hydrated.
