The Standard Schnauzer is the original breed of the three sizes of Schnauzer. They are a handsome, robust, squarely built, medium-sized dog with aristocratic bearing. The coat is harsh, and wiry with minimal shedding and is salt and pepper or solid black in color. The Standard Shnauzer is sociable, alert, a comedian, a formidable guard, and a family companion. Properly raised and trained, they are reliable companions with their own family’s children. They are usually not unnecessary barkers. They are noted for guarding the family home and for displaying devotion to their immediate family.

Males are ideally between 18 and 20 inches (45cm-50cm) high at the shoulders and generally weigh between 35 and 50 pounds (15.5 kg-22.5 kg). Females are ideally between 17 and 19 inches( 42.5 cm-47.5 cm) high at the shoulders and generally weigh between 30 and 45 pounds(13,5kg-20,2kg).
