Giant Schnauzer is one of the most useful and powerful working breeds. It was originally developed in Germany by crossbreeding Standard Schnauzer with Great Dane and Bouvier des Flandres.
Although it doesn’t really belong to a group of giant dogs, it is called Giant because it is the biggest of the three types of Schnauzers which are all distinct breeds that just look very similar.
This impressive breed grows up to 66 – 71 cm, and can weigh from 27 – 48 kg. Its size and the amount of energy it possess, makes it unsuitable for indoor life. So, if it is kept in an apartment, Giant Schnauzer will need at least two daily walks or jogs in order for them to be calm and obedient.
What makes Giant Schnauzer unique?
Giant Schnauzer’s coat comes in two variations: black, and pepper and salt. It almost doesn’t shed at all.
This breed needs careful training and socialization since young age. If not trained properly, it can be aggressive with other animals or even children. This Giant is well known for its intelligence, protectiveness and boldness. It can also be reserved with strangers, so the owners of this breed need to be dominant and constantly show leadership. With the right treatment, this dog will be loyal, playful, obedient and social.
