The Standard Schnauzer is a sturdy and protective working class breed. Originally recognized by the AKC in 1904, the Standard Schnauzer is the smallest breed in the working class. What they lack in size, they make up for in spirit and courage. You can expect this breed to be loyal and fun-loving with your family, but a very effective watchdog, given the fact they are extremely alert.
The original use of the Standard Schnauzer was to serve as a guard dog and clear vermin for its owners. They were also effective at the herding of livestock, but lack the strong herding instinct of many breeds in the herding class, and are much more versatile. Today’s Standard Schnauzer has become a well-liked family pet and companion, but still possesses the courageous spirit of a guard dog. The Standard Schnauzer is one of 3 Schnauzer breeds, the others being the Miniature Schnauzer and Giant Schnauzer. You can learn more about the Standard Schnauzer by reading our full profile below.
