This is a video of Schnoodle puppy Murphy enjoying his peaceful life in South London. Watching the neighbor’s horse, running about by the creek with another dog friend, getting washed by mom, lovingly toweled off by her, then sitting on her lap while she reads. This is the good life.
A Schnoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Miniature Schnauzer. They are smart and charming. Both of their parents are alert, which makes the Schnoodle a very good watch dog, according to Vetstreet. Both of their parents are smart and are quick learners, so that’s an advantage when you socialize and train the Schnoodle.
What are some characteristics of Schnoodles?
Schnoodles are companion dogs. They love being around their people. They are not dogs that live outside by themselves. They need moderate exercise—a walk everyday, and playtime activity. They’ll actually adapt to your lifestyle.
When you get a crossbreed, it’s hard to predict which parent they inherit more from. Both Miniature Schnauzer and Poodles are friendly, with Schnauzer being more protective. As for their coat, it can be curly, straight, or wiry, depending on which genes they inherit. There’s a good chance they’ll have a curly or wavy coat.
They’ll look really good if you take them to the groomer every 4 to 6 weeks or so. And you’ll need to brush them every couple of days so their hair won’t get matted. Oh, and bathe them in between their hair appointments.
Schnoodles get reddish brown tear stain below their eyes. If you wash their face everyday, and gently wipe below their eyes, you can help to prevent the stains from setting. Clip their nails every week or two. Keep their ears clean and dry. And brush their teeth everyday, using toothpaste for dogs. It is a time investment. Make sure you have the energy and time for this kind of grooming care before bringing one home.
