Overview
The Schnoodle is created by the crossing of two breeds: Schnauzer and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are one of the most popular companion crosses.
Character
The ideal Schnoodle should be well-proportioned, squarely-built, and possess a sturdy athletic appearance. They should have a keen, bold, and lively expression.
Temperament
The Schnoodle is affectionate, loving, and devoted. They do best in a home with older, considerate children or children they have been raised with. They do well with dogs or non-canine pets they have been with since puppyhood. Schnoodle's may not tolerate dogs or children they do not know. They do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. They are highly suspicious of strangers and make excellent watchdogs.
Care
The Schnoodle requires frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling and may also require professional clipping. Bathing should be done when necessary. It is important to keep the ears clean to prevent infection. They may be prone to such health issues as PRA, skin disorders, Von Willebrand's Disease, diabetes, ear infection, epilepsy, and heart disease.
Coat
The coat of the Schnoodle may be wiry and coarse, curly, or a combination of both.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are a must. The Schnoodle may be stubborn and difficult to housebreak. The crate training method works best. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Schnoodle is highly energetic but will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. Schnoodle's are adept at learning tricks and enjoy agility, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play in a fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Schnoodle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

I had a nylon leash(you can get them at Petsmart or Petco) and it worked amazingly. I had a Schnoodle once. He was on a retractable leash and chewed through it! But he chewed almost EVERYTHING! -vet2b

She had a dog buddy at the old owners' place. I'm in an apartment and work from home, she was taught to free-eat from her bowl and I'm concerned as she's not eating that much and I feel I need to compensate with snacks or treats. The previous owners also had a 10-month old which is part of that I think...free food! Also she's pretty lethargic and sleepy throughout the day. I take her out about 4x a day and she never seems too much like she's up for playing when I've tried at random times. I don't know if this is all due to the adjustment period or if there is more that I need to do. She doesn't seem unhealthy, but, maybe still adjusting? Anything more I can do to make her adjustment better without spoiling her to death?

Weigh her every day/other day if possible, and make sure she has not gained a noticeable amount of weight. If you get Iams food, it gives a food amount guide. I would suggest 2-3 cups of food daily. Make sure besides just walking her, play with her as if you were a dog (like playing with the 10 month old pup) to get her exercise out(fetch, tug of war, 'tag', etc.). -vet2b

She won't even jump up for her treats! She wants to be alone! She is eating and drinking as usually!

Make sure her leg(s) arent injured. The back legs of schnoodles are prone to fractures, breaks, and sprains. Its best to not have her up to high on her back legs. As for not jumping up to the bed, that defintely sounds suspiciously like an injury. Her temperment may be different as well if shes injured.

My Schnoodle eats fruit, including bananas, all the time with no problems- and she's allergic to everything. I'd say that worst case scenario, a little bit of diarrhea is what you're looking at.

Keep at it. It's possible you expect too much from your schnoodle. Crate her when she can't be watched, and take her outside as soon as she comes out of the crate. Mine spent her first 2 years in the crate when we were gone, and at night. She is now 5, still lays in the crate on her own (she feels safe there), and she has never had an accident in the house. She is a snooper when outside, so it takes her a while to take care of business, but patience wins out. Good luck

this is a puppy thing, and she should grow out of it soon. schnoodles need a lot of mental stimulation, so consider getting her some dog puzzle games.

I was under the impression my schnauzer poodle mix would not shed because of the fact both poodles and schnauzers are low-shedders. Well, my girl does shed, though it is less than, say, a labrador, he is proof that when dog breeds are mixed the result is unpredictable. She is an awesome dog, though! If you have a serious allergy, in my opinion it would be wiser to stick with a purebred schnauzer or poodle.

My Schnoodle had her first heat at 6 months old- exactly 2 days before she was scheduled to be spayed! The bleeding wasn't bad, she was so uncomfortable in the diapers that I just put red sheets over the furniture. It lasted about 3 weeks. I wouldn't want either of us to go through that again, so she's spayed now!

You might try treats to get your schnoodle to go, also encouragement. Also it might be hawks, they love small animals. Dogs see alot of things we do not.

I obtained my schnoodle when she was six weeks old and it took her 3 months to fully house train. What I found helpful was taking her out every couple of hours and right after she would eat. When I would leave to work I would leave potty training pads and every time she should use them I would give her positive reinforcement. Since seem to work for me to train. A thing with the schnoodle because it does like being with the family it might choose not to let you know it needs to go outside because it doesn't want to be left outside too long. So as soon as you know it has used the restroom let him back in and that way it learns that he won't be left there.

We have had 2 schnoodles over the last 25 years and just love that breed! Both of them were stubborn but crate training is the way to go!! THey are incredibly smart and love games and a challenge. We trained the 2nd one not only with a crate, but when we were home we hung a bell on a string around the handle of the door. She absolutley loved going over and ringing that bell when she needed to go potty! I know somtimes it seems they are just doing it for attention but overall it worked beautifully! Schnoodles are very smart and they love to be challenged as they get bored easily. We had so much fun with both of them and miss them terribly! Guess it's time for another schnoodle!!

The schnauzer part of a Schnoodle is trained to sniff out truffles, or underground mushroom, so they do that.

Truffles??? Lol! Schnauzers were bred as ratters. From what I've read, they still retain the ability. I would imagine this would have something to do with them trying to sniff things out. Mine do the same.

It is a genetic behavior. Schnoodle's (early breeders of schnauzers) bred dogs that would search out vermin in and around their barns. The ones that didn't, who knows what happened to them but they were not desired nor bred. Any dog that is "trained" to do some thing must be trained to do so. If you did not train your dog to seek out truffles then that is not what it is doing. However it may be curious of any unusual scents and seek them out.

My Schnoodle is nearly perfect. She's 3 years old and we adopted her 3 months ago. Not one accident in our apt ever. I have her on a routine and at least a 30 min walkndaily. Her only issue is other dogs. She sees one and she will scream and lunge even if the dog is 50 yards away. I've tried diversion and other things. Poor girl. People must think I'm beating her the way she screams. We live in a complex so I can't avoid dogs. I do my best but it stil happens. Any suggestions?
