Giant Schnauzer Puppies

The Giant Schnauzer was initially bred to be guardians of their homes. Instead, they’re purebred dogs who are part of the working group. This doggo is known for being loyal, alert, and trainable. So, if you want to learn more about Giant Schnauzer puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get Giant Schnauzer Puppies

The easiest way to find this dog breed is to go through a reputable breeder. Since the American Kennel Club accepts this dog as its breed standard, you’ll be able to find ethical breeders of this breed through the AKC Marketplace. Brooper…

You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible, allowing them to live in their home as a family
  • Health screen and genetically test the dogs before breeding to ensure it’s safe (and then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Want to meet with you in person to get to know you and to allow you to meet the parents and the litter
  • Be able to answer all your questions about the process, the breed as a whole, and the breeder’s experience and reputation

In addition, a good breed will make sure that all the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations.

If you find a breeder that does not do the above, then you’ll want to avoid them. They might be a puppy mill or backyard breeder, and they are more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies. Also, they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions, often keeping them in kennels most of the time. 

Alternatively, you can call your local animal shelter or rescue organization. They might have Giant Schnauzer puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption. 2bandb…

The Cost

The average cost of a Giant Schnauzer puppy is between $2,100 and $5,500. However, the cost of this pup can vary depending on factors such as the breeder’s location, the time of year, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter. You can also go through a shelter or rescue to find this puppy, and the price will be much lower. 

Appearance

Schnauzers can come in three different sizes, the largest being the Giant Schnauzer. This particular dog is large, but females are smaller than males. For example, males can grow to be about 25.5 to 27.5 inches tall and weigh between 60 and 85 pounds. On the other hand, females can grow to be about 23.5 to 25.5 inches tall and weigh between 55 and 75 pounds.

Also, they have a wiry, medium-length double coat that comes in a handful of coat colors. For example, their coat might be Black, Pepper & Salt, Black & Tan, or Fawn. Valoursgiants…

Temperament

Giant Schnauzers are loyal and affectionate with their family members. However, they’ll need early training and socialization to get along well with young children, other dogs, and strangers. They are easy to train and adaptable if you bring kids into the picture after having the dog for a while. However, you’ll need to supervise them just in case.

This dog breed is a vigilant watchdog, and they’ll bark to alert you if something or someone is nearby.

In addition, this dog breed also has high energy levels. They’ll need a bigger house with a fenced-in yard to get out their energy and stretch their legs. You’ll want to make sure that they have ample time to exercise and play every day. Flaming_pepper…

Giant Schnauzer Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the first year, you’ll want to bring your Giant Schnauzer puppy to the vet a couple of times. For instance, you’ll be able to keep them up to date with their shots and boosters and keep track of their growth and development. Then, for each year after that, you’ll want to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

Giant Schnauzers are relatively healthy, but they are known to get some health issues. For example, they’re prone to the following health problems:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Osteochondrosis Dissecans (OCD)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Gastric Torsion (Bloat)

With proper care, however, this dog breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 15 years. Tahoe…

Diet

As with most dogs, you can provide any food that’s appropriate for their breed side, age, weight, and metabolism. Also, you want to make sure that your vet approves of the food. For example, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food

Grooming

You’ll want to bring your doggo to a professional grooming salon once a month to get them a bath. Also, you’ll want to get their coat stripped or clipped once a month.

Otherwise, be sure to brush their coat weekly to keep the shedding under control. Also, keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
