A Schnoodle is what you get when you breed together a Shnauzer and a Poodle. They are as affectionate as any other dog you may come across. They have a similar fur to the poodle, as it grows in thick curls. They are only friendly if you are family if not, they can bark excessively.


For activities, you will want to keep Schnoodles well exercised, as these pups like to remain active. They enjoy playing, walking, jogging, and exploring. You can also help to stimulate their active minds by training them and teaching them new tricks, which they are quick to learn how to do.


Schnoodles can be more likely to have things such as skin disorders, diabetes, and heart disease. It is a great idea to get these dogs checked up on at the vet. With the correct preventative actions made to help protect them from these things, the dogs should do just fine.


The Schoodles have a somewhat square body, with thick fur, and a small stature. They look kind of like miniature poodles more than Schnauzers, but both types of looks are clear in this dog breed's make-up. They are lively and energetic, as well as highly suspicious. If you are a stranger, approach them with caution.


The coat of a Schnoodle is made up of thick curls and strongly resembles the fur of poodles. It needs to be maintained to ensure the dog remains clean of debris. Their fur can come in a variety of colors such as white, black, gray, or brown. They need a professional to handle their coats.


These dogs have a suspicious attitude towards those they don't know, unless they are socialized at a young age. They are very affectionate towards their family, and can be loving additions to any home. Their alert nature makes for excellent watch dogs, as they will bark at the sight of any unknown figure.


Schnoodles can be very stubborn dogs, and will be a bit difficult to train in their older age. Training must begin as a puppy to take full effect. They need to learn to be able to get along with other dogs, people, and other household pets. Otherwise, without early introduction, they can be paranoid.
