The Giant Schnauzer is a large, powerful, elegant, compact dog with bushy eyebrows, whiskers and a beard. This breed has a harsh, wiry outer coat and dense, soft undercoat. Ideally, the dog's height is the same as the length, resulting in a rather square impression. It is active and energetic.

This breed is very intelligent, calm, loyal and responsible. It may be aggressive with strangers and will make an excellent watchdog. The Schnauzer family comes in three sizes; giant, standard and miniature; each considered separate breeds.


The coat comes in solid black or salt & pepper.


Harsh, hard and wiry, dense undercoat. Brush the wiry coat daily with a short wire brush to prevent matting. The coat should be stripped to prevent it from becoming soft and woolly. Pluck the coat twice a year -in spring and fall; trim around the eyes and ears with a blunt-nosed scissor and clean the whiskers after meals. It has no doggie odor and sheds little to no hair.
