Schnoodle

The decision to adopt a fur baby again was huge for our family of chronic respiratory illness sufferers. PuppySpot made the process almost painless. The communication throughout and follow-up at each stage were very helpful. Our Schnoodle was delivered after a fee hiccups with the delivery service looking frightened and unkempt, but a few washes and snuggles later and he was right as rain. A few days later, the vet found GI worms and the troubles have continued. Overall, our experience was go...

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.

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.
 

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
