Schnauzer Breed Information:

Schnauzers were originally bred to be ratters, guard dogs, and all-purpose dogs on German farms. Their versatility, medium size, protective nature, and love of family make them an excellent companion dog breed.

Family Suitability:

Schnauzers are suited to any family. They are a moderate energy dog, so they love to play and will make a great family dog.

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you. 

All puppies come microchipped, wormed, vaccinated and flea treated. Every puppy comes with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures. You will also receive a FREE vet check and FREE 4 weeks pet insurance!

All our puppies come from approved and accredited breeders.

Schnauzer Breed Information:

Schnauzer Size/Weight:

Height: 25-35cm, Weight: 5-11kg

Schnauzer Temperament:

Schnauzers are known to be a happy, loyal and playful breed. They are an intelligent dog with an affectionate, outgoing and cheery personality making them great for families with children and they generally get along well with other dogs, given they have been well socialised as a puppy. They are easy going and will be happy to participate in whatever you are doing, whether its playing fetch in the back yard or curling up to watch a movie - whatever love you give them, they will give it back two-fold! 

Schnauzer Grooming:

Schnauzers will need to be brushed every couple of days. During the summer especially, a clip is recommended every 6-8 weeks. Like all dog breeds with floppy ears, they need to have their ears properly dried after their bath, and regularly checked to avoid infections. As the Schnauzers are a 'non-shedding' breed, this is a good breed for anyone that suffers from allergies.

Schnauzer Exercise Requirements:

Schnauzers have a moderate energy level, so will require a walk every 1-2 days. If they are well socialised and outgoing, it is also a good idea to take them to parks or other pet friendly areas, where they can interact with other dogs and people.
