Schnoodle Characteristics

The Schnoodle is a popular hybrid mix between a Schnauzer and a Poodle.  These dogs come in a large assortment of colors and sizes to fit any family's needs. Intelligent and loving, these dogs make perfect household companions or apartment dwellers as long as they're provided enough exercise.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Ranging anywhere from 10-26 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing between 20-75 pounds, the Schnoodle's size can vary more than almost any other designer breed. Pairing a Standard Poodle with a Giant Schnauzer will result in a large breed while breeding a Toy Poodle with a Mini Schnauzer will give you something the size of a Jack Russell Terrier. Obviously, there are many desirable sizes in between the two extremes, so be sure to research and meet with your breeder before purchasing to understand the size of the dog you will get.
 
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Schnoodle was originally bred as a companion dog for people who are allergic to animals. The Schnoodle was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Schnauzer or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. These dogs come in a multitude of coats, including black, brown, and white.
 
Because the Schnauzer fits in the "Terrier" group, early obedience training and socialization are recommended to contain the barking and digging habits that are often ingrained in the Schnauzer. Socialization is also strongly encouraged to help the naturally independent Schnauzer learn to make friends at a young age.
