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.
The ideal Schnoodle should be well-proportioned, squarely-built, and possess a sturdy athletic appearance. They should have a keen, bold, and lively expression.
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.
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.
The coat of the Schnoodle may be wiry and coarse, curly, or a combination of both.
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.
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.
Male: 10-20; Female: 10-20 lbs

Annual cost of owning a Schnoodle puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Schnoodles true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Anonymous asked:
I have a male Schnoodle. I would love to breed him. I don't know where to go to look for someone that wants to breed. My dog has anxiety when I leave the house and the Vet suggested Prozac. Is there anything you can suggest to help him from barking when we leave?



If your dog has anxiety to the point of needing medication, do not breed your dog. That anxiety could easily be genetic and you would be bringing puppies into the world that would have the same problems as him. It is not fair to your dog, nor is it fair to the unborn pups he would produce. Please neuter your dog. You should always exercise your dog for at least half an hour before leaving the home, and then have him go to his own space. Whether it is a room in the home or a crate and have a bone or another item to chew such as a peanut butter filled Kong. Contact a Positive Reinforcement trainer if your dog is still barking.


Separation anxiety is a very real disorder. Some don't want to be left alone, it is very common in a large number of breeds. Best answer is get a dog sitter or give him to someone that will not leave him alone.

What is the best type of leash for a Schnoodle?



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


My schnoodle loves the retractable. On a walk, he know exactly how much time he can spend before he "runs out of leash". So he will run ahead, investigate while you pass him by and then run to pass you to do it again. He has a blast leaving p-mail.


Our schnoodle loves people and would pull on the leash frequently. We were advised by our vet to look for a device called a HALTI at any pet store. This goes over their nose and mouth and your leash connects under their chin so if your dog starts to pull on the leash it turns their head to the side. Since dogs like to lead with their nose the quickly learn not to pull and to walk slowly. After our schnoodle was trained we passed the halti on to a neighbor whos Schnauzer also had a "pulling" problem and it corrected that dog's problem, too.

Why are Schnoodles hard to housebreak?



The breed is harder to housebreak as they are stubborn and need consistency in direction. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer. He/She will be able to help you with this situation.


My schnoodle was house broken in under a week. You need to reward and praise them when going in the grass. They will do whatever it takes to make you happy.


My Schnoodle was trained very easily. By the end of two months of having him he NEVER went in the house until he got sick just before he died. I had him for 13 years.


Very sorry for your loss, Mine past on at 14.5 years. They are very happy to please you, miss you when your gone. Mine would stay in my truck for hours even when I left the door open. He did not like to be left in the house alone.

I adopted a 6-year Schnoodle a week ago who is so sweet and is very socialized. 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. 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.).


My schnoodle love a schedule. He does sleep most of the day. When I come home he expect dinner, walk, play, and then bed. He will remind me if I run behind!


The best type of leash for ANY dog is the HALTI which attaches under the chin. Why? Because when the dog tries to pull away from you it turns their head to the side and the dog quickly learns not to pull on the leash. This leash is available at any kennel supply store. No, I don't sell them, but you will love it.


The 'anonymous' poster recommending the HALTI is dead on. We used one on our Schnoodle and within a month she didn't need it any more so I passed it on to a neighbor lady that had a miniature Poodle that pulled constantly on her leash. This dog took about 6 weeks to become trained to the point he didn't need it any more and the neighbor raved about what a great invention the HALTI was. It can be purchased at any dog supply store. Jim


If you have only had your dog for 1 week then you have to realize everything is new to them. You need to give a few weeks for them to get to know you & their new routine. As for feeding treats because they are not eating ... they may never want to eat their kibble if they know they will get treats ... it’s a vicious cycle. Stop the treats & wait for them to get hungry.
