History of the Miniature Schnoodle

The Miniature Schnoodle is a designer breed that is a cross between a Miniature Schnauzer and a Poodle. Crossbreeding has been going on for many years, but within the past twenty years is when designer breeds started to become popular. The Schnoodle is said to have started in the 1980s and was bred to be a low-shedding and low-dander dog that is a great family pet.

Physical Characteristics of the Miniature Schnoodle

They can come in a multitude of coat varieties and sizes because there are different kinds of Schnauzers and Poodles that can be bred together to create a Schnoodle. Our Miniature Schnauzers are bred with a Miniature Schnauzer and Toy Poodle, so they typically are 12 -15 inches tall and 13-20 pounds. Every litter will be different, depending on the genetic makeup of the parents and what traits appear in the offspring. Some Miniature Schnoodles may take after the Poodle and have curlier fur or they may have more bristly fur like the Schnauzer. There are many different types of coat types including: 

  • Chocolate
  • Salt and Pepper
  • White
  • Black
  • Parti (white coat with color patches)

Hypoallergenic Hair of the Mini Schnoodle

Mini Schnoodles were literally designed to be a low-shedding breed, making them a possible fit for people with animal fur related allergies. But lets be clear; there is no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog. Miniature Schnoodles may not shed as much as other breeds but some of their hair will come out and all dogs shed skin cells; just like humans. But fear not; you should be able to receive kisses from your Schnoodle and give them lots of hugs sniffle free!

Temperament of the Miniature Schnoodle

A happy-go-lucky and loyal best friend is what you get when you bring home a mini Schnoodle puppy. This is a social breed that will love to go on family excursions and being around other people. If you have a busy lifestyle it is important that you adapt your puppy to your environment; introduce them to your friends and new people and other animals. For a well rounded puppy you can do things like take them on walks so they can see the world and get used to small animals running around, the sound of trees when the wind blows, cars and bicycles passing by, etc. Expanding their horizons and developing their social skills will also help them from developing separation anxiety, since they are such a loyal companion. Your puppy will love physical activity like wrestling around on the floor and going on walks/runs. If you have a yard that is great, but this breed will also do well in apartments since they are smaller. Poodles and Schnauzers are both intelligent breeds, making Schnoodles a very intelligent dog. Make sure you have plenty of toys, and a variety of them, to keep your puppy entertained and out of mischief. This unique breed will bring a lot of joy and adventure to your family!
