Standard Schnauzer dog - A medium size dog.
|The Standard Schnauzer|
Dogs with the Human Brain.
Breeders in the land of their origin (Germany)
hold the Standard Schnauzer second to none in intelligence
and in fearlessness. Used during World War I, as dispatch
carriers and Red Cross aides, they were further employed in
Germany, in police work. Their total devotion and bravery,
coupled with an uncanny perception of approaching danger,
render them first class as personal guards and companions.
His alert nature combines high-spirited temperament
with extreme reliability.
This sturdy heavy-set medium size dog would be
happiest in a house with fenced backyard. They like to run
several times a day. Shedding is average, so grooming once
week should suffice. They tend to bond to one person, but are
known to be good with children. They are also excellent
watchdogs and would make a good family pet for the right
people. As with most breeds, obedience training is an
excellent idea for a Standard Schnauzer puppy.
