The smallest of the working breeds, the Standard schnauzer makes loyal family dog with
guardian instincts. Most will protect their home from uninvited visitors with a deep and robust
bark. Originally a German farmdog, they adapt well to any climatic condition, including cold
winters. In general, they typically are good with children and were once known in Germany as
"kinderwachters". If properly trained and socialized early to different ages, races, and
temperaments of people, they can be very patient and tolerant in any situation. Like other
working dogs, Standard Schnauzers require a fairly strong-willed owner that can be consistent
and firm with training and commands.
Standard Schnauzers also widely known to be intelligent and easy to train. They have been
called "the dog with a human brain", and in Stanley Coren's book The Intelligence of Dogs,
they are rated 18th out of 80 breeds on the ability to learn new commands and to obey known
commands. Standard Schnauzers are extremely versatile, excelling at dog sports such as
agility, obedience, tracking, Disc dog, Flyball and herding. Members of the breed have been
used in the last 30 years in the United States as for bomb detection, search and rescue, and
skin and lung cancer-detection.
Like most working dogs, Standard Schnauzers will be rambunctious until about the age of two;
and lots of exercise will keep them busy. Owners must be prepared to mentally and physically
stimulate their Schnauzer every day, even into their old age. Like other high-intelligence
breeds, a bored Schnauzer is a destructive Schnauzer.
According to the Standard Schnauzer Club of America, “The Standard Schnauzer is
considered a high-energy dog. They need ample exercise not only for physical well-being, but
also for emotional well-being. The minimum amount an adult dog should get is the equivalent
of a one long walk a day. This walk should be brisk enough to keep the dog at a steady trotting
pace in order to keep the dog in prime physical condition. The Standard Schnauzer puppy is
constantly exploring, learning and testing his limits. As adults, they are always ready for a walk
in the woods, a ride in the car, a training session or any other activity that allows them to be
with their owner. This is a breed that knows how to be on the alert, even when relaxing by the
feet of their owner.
