- On the ball (literally and figuratively)
- Good-natured buddy
- Animated and perky
Do you and the Schoodle match up?
Terrific for a person who:
- Expects his dog to happily jump through hoops on the makeshift agility course he designed in the backyard
- Esteems intelligence as well as sportiness, prey drive as well as play drive (it’s nice to have the house clear of rodents!).
- Loves schmoozing and socializing with his dog.
Think twice if you’re a person who:
- Expects silence in the home. Schnoodles tend to sound the alarm…often!
- Keeps his dog in the doghouse. Schnoodles won’t thrive alone outdoors for long periods.
- Defines a dog requiring a lot of attention as “annoyingly needy.”
Care and maintenance of the Schnoodle: A Schnoodle’s coat may have the characteristics of the more-wiry hair of the Schnauzer, the softer curlier hair of the Poodle, or a mixture of the two variations. They require weekly brushing, grooming, and trims (ear hair anyone?!) every few months.
A variety of colors including: Black, grey, brown, white, apricot, silver and parti-colored.
Generally soft and wavy, but can be curly or wirery.
Low-shedding coat requires regular trimming.
10 to 15 years
