Schnauzers have a lively temperament but can also be very calm and chilled out. It all depends on how much activity they have had during the day.
They are very loyal towards their owners but not obedient by nature. They do like to please but also have a tendency to be headstrong and want to do things their own way.
Schnauzers are adorable with kids as they love to play. If somebody throws the ball for them, they will be very happy and can happily play fetch all day long.
Owning a Schnauzer means daily adventure walks to tire this dog out, mentally and physically. A Schnauzer will never say no to any dog sport or daily runs.
Not a barker by nature, this breed can develop barking habits if not socialised enough.
Schnauzers require brushing twice a week and regular trimming of their fur. They look best with a proper Schnauzer groom. This breed also comes in miniature form - which is just a smaller and lighter version.
