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.
 

How dog-friendly is South Dakota?

South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.


We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more. 


The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country. 


But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in South Dakota

South Dakota saved 10,836 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 1,824 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Six out of 23 of the animal shelters within South Dakota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Improving this percentage will go a long way to ranking South Dakota higher compared to other states.
