A Schnoodle is a mix between a Schnauzer and a Poodle. They come in a large range of sizes, depending on which size Poodle and Schnauzer they were crossed with. When picking your puppy, make sure you know the size of the parents, as you could land up with a 6 kg version or a 45 kg one!
This is another one of the popular hybrid dog breeds, with the aim of this mix being to combine the Poodle's intelligence and low-shedding hair with the playful temperament of the Schnauzer.
Schnoodles make great pets for novice dog owners. You just need to watch out for the mischievousness and stubbornness that can come out once in a while.
Schnoodles are easy to train but have more of a tendency to bark than the other hybrid dog breeds like Labradoodle or Spoodle. They will also want you to take them out for lots of daily exercise.
Grooming is required every 7-10 weeks and daily brushing is recommended to avoiding matting. Special care required for all hybrid dog breeds is daily eye cleaning to prevent eye infections and eye stains.
