13 Reasons Why Schnauzers Are The Best Dogs.
Julia Stein

Schnauzers, they are the cuddlers, the protectors (even if it’s protection from the plastic bag two streets away), the part human, part dog mix, and the most lovable creatures. I may be biased because I live with two Schnauzer puppies, but I wouldn’t trade them for the world. These dogs have such a unique personality, and look, that makes them so special. Here are just some reasons why I love them.

1. They Are Hypoallergenic!

Having a brother that is allergic to dogs, it was so important to my family to find a dog that would be able to be a part of the family. Schnauzers have a thick fur that usually mats, which causes them not to shed, perfect for families that have children with allergies!

2. Beards. Beards. Beards.

If there was ever a “Best dog beard” contest, your Schnauzer would win. The beard envy is real with Schnauzers. No matter how much food gets stuck in that beard, it will still be the cutest thing and you will never say no to the doggy kisses.

3. The Tails...

Their little stubby tails are the cutest things. No other words needed, Just look at how dang cute!

4. Cuddles!

I never have to worry about not getting affection. Schnauzers just want love and affection, and I have no problem giving it to them. When my Schnauzers were little they would climb right up onto my neck and shoulder and fall asleep, it was the best.

5. Nose & Whiskers.

The wet little nose, and the few little pieces of hair that move when they breathe, that alone will melt my heart. Puppy noses are the best noses, no matter what the breed. (Schnauzers are still the best though.)

6. Bed Head.

Whenever they wake up, Schnauzers are prone to having bed head, especially with those fluffy eyebrows. Their hair is gone in every direction like it’s trying to get away from their head!

7. Frog Legs?

It seems like Schnauzers have no leg bones, I don’t understand how they manage to sit in the poses they do, especially the frog legs. Either way, It’s crazy adorable!

8. They Miss You Immediately.

I will leave for eight hours, or I will walk outside to get the mail, and no matter which time I leave, the reaction to me getting back inside is the same. Schnauzers will miss you so much, and are so excited to see you whenever you enter the room.

9. They Are As Playful As They Come.

Whether were playing ball, relaxing, or cleaning up the house. Schnauzers will ALWAYS find a way to play. Even if it means making you chase that piece of paper towel they took out of the trash.

10. Getting Ignored Is Not An Option!

You will never be able to ignore your Schnauzer, they will give you kisses, paw at you, and bring you toys until you give them attention. You see videos of people’s pets not giving them attention when they want it, with Schnauzers, this is not the case!

11. You Become So Used To Barking That You’ve Just Blocked It Out.

Being that my Schnauzers are still puppies, their barks are so high pitched, and they do it to everything. That being because of the super sensitive ears. But, all Schnauzers love to bark, whether it be at you, the mail man, the squirrels, the plastic bag up the block, or the leaf outside the window. You just tend to block it out eventually.

12. Always Stylin’

Your Schnauzer will ALWAYS be the most stylish pup around. They’ve got a good beard, and excellent brows, they’ve got the whole look down, with the right outfit they’re practically ready for Animal Planets version of Next Top Model.

13. They Are GREAT Family Dogs.

It’s hard to find that perfect dog, especially one that fits into a big family, one that has a few people with allergies too. Schnauzers are lovable, hypoallergenic, and loyal. They will love anyone that loves them and that makes them great pets, they fit into our family great, and I’m sure they’ll fit into yours!
