The intelligent, active, and affectionate Schnoodle, also known as a Schnauzerdoodle or Schnauzerpoo, is a cross between the Schnauzer and Poodle breeds. It can come in three sizes: Toy Schnoodle, Miniature Schnoodle, and Standard Schnoodle. They have round heads with almond-shaped eyes, a short muzzle, and floppy, hanging ears which give them a teddy bear-like look. Being a hybrid breed, the Schnoodle can have either a strong body and rough hair like a Schnauzer or slender body and curly hair like a Poodle. Their coat comes in various colors including black, brown, gray, tan, white, silver, red, or apricot. Discover more about our Schnoodle puppies for sale below!
The Schnoodle is friendly, affectionate, easy-going, and obedient; making them ideal family dogs. Being a cross between the Schnauzer and Poodle, traits from both parents can be observed in these dogs, making them alert and playful like a Schnauzer or intelligent, active, and obedient like a Poodle. The Schnoodle is known to be a loyal and devoted dog, making them highly protective towards their family, which can also make them a good watchdog.
Schnoodles can have varying coat types ranging from curly to straight to wiry depending on which parent’s genes they inherit. However, most have a curly or wavy coat. Their coat will look its best if taken to a professional groomer every four to six weeks, but it requires brushing/combing about every couple of days to prevent matting and tangles, along with bathing them regularly in between appointments with the groomer.
Like some other breeds, the Schnoodle commonly develops reddish-brown tear stains beneath their eyes. To prevent tear stains from setting, it is best to wash their face regularly.
Additionally, trim their nails about every week or two, keep their ears clean, and brush their teeth regularly. As with other breeds, it is best to start grooming the Schnoodle while they are a puppy in order to get used to it and learn to accept grooming willingly.
