Personality and Temperament
The Schnauzer is extremely intelligent, very active and with a great sense of fun. It has a surprisingly high ability to learn which is limited only by the trainer’s patience. In fact, this is one of the breeds which most often obtain certificates for being well trained. They learn very fast and in time can learn anything any other dog can learn.
Schnauzers adapt quickly to changes of homes, no matter what the age of the dog. In fact adopting an adult as a pet can be just as satisfactory as adopting a puppy given that these dogs usually live between 12 and 15years without any problems as long as they have a healthy, active life.
Average Weight and Size
Schnauzers usually grow to between 30.5 and 38centimetres tall. Although there is no exact weight determined for this breed they usually weigh between 4.5 and 7kg (which makes them one of the smaller toy breeds), plus you should control what they eat as they are prone to obesity and diabetes.
