Schnauzer Tattoos - A Schnauzer (plural schnauzers) is a dog type that originated in Germany in the 1400s and 1500s. The term comes from "Schnauze," the German word for snout, because of the dog's distinctly furry muzzle. The type consists of three breeds: the giant, standard and miniature schnauzer. The original schnauzer was of the same size as the modern standard schnauzer breed, and was bred as a rat catcher, yard dog and guard dog. The miniature schnauzer is the result of crossing the original schnauzer.
Friendly and loving, Schnauzers become part of their families and get on well with children. They are protective, and they will also alert members of the household to any potential danger. The breed is very intelligent but can be have a mind of their own, so it’s good to start training early and provide daily exercise.
The word Schnauzer also means moustache in German.
The Schnauzer’s beard and leg hair should be brushed often to prevent mats from forming. The body coat should be "stripped" (loose, dead hair is plucked out) at least twice a year. Some schnauzers have wiry hair which is easier to shave but may have fuzzier soft hair which is harder to shave.
