Giant Schnauzer Information

Giant SchnauzerThis breed closely resembles the Standard Schnauzer, but he’s just bigger, weighing in at up to 95 pounds (for an even smaller version see the Miniature Schnauzer). A bold and valiant dog, the Giant Schnauzer has a substantial build, distinguished beard and eyebrows, and curious expression. His coat can come in black, pepper and salt, black and tan, or fawn and requires regular maintenance.

Developed in Germany, the Giant Schnauzer isn’t a giant breed, but it is much larger than the rest of the Schnauzers. He is a great family pet and is easy to train. Just make sure this very active breed gets plenty of exercise!
