Grooming
The breed needs to be groomed into the “Schnauzer Look” several times per year.  The involves clipping the ears, cheeks and rear and scissoring the eyebrows and leg furnishings.  The body coat can either be clipped or hand stripped. Individuals can be groomed at a grooming salon or the owner can learn to do this themselves.
History
Schnauzers originated  in Germany in the 1400s. The Standard is the original type, and was developed as a vermin controller. Because of it's intelligence it was quickly utilised as a watchdog and guard dog also.
Positives
The breed make excellent guard and watch dogs, which are roles they were developed for early in their history. They are good family dogs, provided they are raised with the one family.
Negatives
They can be very territorial towards other dogs and animals. This tendency needs to be watched, especially as they become older.
