Gentle with children, this dog is an affectionate and playful companion for people of all ages. If you are looking for a family dog, consider a Schnoodle.

Poodles and Schnauzers

The Schnoodle temperament mixes the intellect of the Poodle with the companionship and devotion of the Schnauzer. The Poodle is fun and energetic and so is the Schnauzer. Both breeds are intelligent and good natured dogs that enjoy the company of people and respond well to training. Both breeds are also sociable and can be stubborn! The Schnoodle temperament varies from one individual to another depending on which traits it has inherited from which parent. A good idea is to look up the characteristics of both the Schnauzer and the Poodle - your Schnoodle will be a mixture of these!


With the right education, Schnoodles are easily trainable, due to them often being eager to please. They also LOVE being with people - don’t think about getting one if you’re intending leaving your dog home alone all day.These are intelligent, alert and sociable dogs.  By nature they are generally affectionate, devoted to the family and have a great sense of fun. They are also gaining a growing reputation in agility and flyball competitions. Due to their intelligence, high trainability and love of humans, some Schnoodles are now being used as therapy dogs in hospitals, schools and nursing homes.As far as exercise goes, they are very adaptable. 

The Coat

Their coat can come in many colors some are: black, white, apricot, silver, grey, apricot, chocolate, black with white markings, wheaten (tan/black), sable, parti (white with large patches of color) and also several shades of Phantom ( black and tan like the Doberman.)

Schnauzers and Poodles are both regarded as non shedding and hypoallergenic dog breeds. The chances are that your Schnoodle will also be a non shedding dog. A puppy can take on the coat characteristics of either breed and Schnoodle puppies in the same litter may have differing coat qualities. . As the puppy matures it may develop the rough, more wiry hair of the Schnauzer, the softer hair of the Poodle or something in between. Some develop coarser Schnauzer-like hair in places - most notably the back - with softer Poodle hair on other parts of the body. Schnoodles' fur does not generally shed like other breeds, but grows more like human hair. Brush your dog every week and send him to the grooming parlour for trimming every 8 to 12 weeks to make sure his fur doesn't get matted. There is no defined breed cut for this crossbreed. Most of them get a general groom - with, say, a #7 shear - with rounded semi-long hair left on the face. For a more terrier-like look, have a squarer trim around the face.


The dogs are bred in toy, miniature. The height and weight of each size are as follows:

  • Toy: 8 to 12 inches in height and weighs 10 to 14 pounds
  • Miniature: 12 to 16 inches in height and weighs 14 to 20 pounds
