Breed Review: Giant Schnauzer (20 Pics)

#19 During training, be patient and avoid physical punishment.

In case of significant difficulties, you can entrust this work to specialists.

#20 When choosing a diet, the physical activity of the dog should be taken into account.

At a high level of activity, food should be enriched with protein and fat. In cold seasons, when keeping a pet in an open-air cage, food should contain an increased amount of fat.

Most of the food of the Giant Schnauzers should consist of meat and offal. They are complemented by cereals, chicken eggs, vegetables, and individual fruits. Spices, pickles, and smoked foods in the dog's diet will harm his health.

Fried, sweet and fatty foods are also unacceptable. Boiled hearts, light, low-fat cheese, biscuits, and special treats for dogs purchased from pet stores are suitable for encouraging and training a pet.

Giant Schnauzers are strong, fearless, and loyal to their masters, but whether they will be obedient depends only on their upbringing and training.

  1. Much of this information is incorrect. Giants are NOT good with children, and 2-3 hours of exercise should be the bare minimum to avoid behavioral issues (destructiveness, aggression and the like). They DO shed, though that can be reduced by vigorous, daily brushing.

    Giants were bred to be multi-purpose farm dogs. Herding cattle or sheep all day, digging rats out of the hay in the barn, wresting and exterminating raccoons from the orchard, pulling a cart with produce into market and not allowing any stranger to set foot on the property. They have a huge amount of stamina and require an owner to reschedule their lives around the dog’s needs. This is not a breed who can be expected to successfully sit on the couch with one or two romps around the back yard daily and an occasional weekend hike.
