What is a TeddyBear Schnoodle?
A Teddybear Schnoodle is a hybrid created by pairing a
Schnauzer and a Poodle. A Teddybear Schnoodle is the strategic combination of a
female with a particular look bred to a male with a particular look to produce pups
with a Plush Teddybear appearance and a wonderful, family focused temperament.
The Schnoodle ranges in size
from small to large, depending on the size of the
Poodle and the Schnauzer that are crossed. Schnoodles can also
be bred back to a poodle to create more color options as Schnauzers
only come in limited colors.
The Schnoodle is a very smart and family focused dog that has gained
popularity due to the fact that they are totally non-shedding
and allergy friendly. Many families that were unable to have a
dog can have a schnoodle. Schnoodles are very family oriented and may not
immediatelyenamored with visitors, but once they receive the cue
from their family that a visitor is accepted, they
become fast friends. With adequate exercise, they do well in most environments.
Schnoodles do best when housed within a home environment as they thrive
when they are in the company of their families. Schnoodles are very
versatile working dogs. They have achieved success as guide
dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs, and sniffer dogs (one study
tested their success at sniffing out peanuts in foods for owners with nut
Schnoodles are very easy to train and learn quickly. Poodles are one of the
smartest breeds and the Giant Schnauzer has been
used for many years for Search and Rescue
work due to their high intelligence level. The Moms in my program have
produced therapy dogs for many different
needs such as children with Autism or adults with PTSD
among others. They have not been known to have any
aggressive traits, but they do need proper socialization
to avoid any shyness or fearfulness just as any other dog would.
Schnoodles also need daily contact with their owners;
they will suffer from separation anxiety if they are left alone for too long.
Schnoodles come in 3 sizes, they are:
- Small-Usually 12-18 pounds as adults
- Medium- Generally 25-45 pounds as adults -Great family dog/ laid back/ generally non-vocal, Non-sheddiing.
- Large- Generally over 50 pounds as adults. Very Smart and easily trained. Generally not very vocal. Non-Shedding. Make excellent Therapy / Service dogs.
Schnoodles are considered to be non-shedders due to the fact that neither
parent sheds, and may be a very good match for people
with allergies. They do require weekly or bi-weekly brushing,
and many owners opt to have them clipped for easier care.
Coat types are:
- Straighter-More Schnauzer
- Looser Wavy Coat (Slight Curl/ Shaggy look)
- Curlier more Fleecy / Plush coat
