Giant Schnauzer

Giant Schnauzer breeders in South AfricaGiant Schnauzer


The Giant Schnauzer is a large, powerful breed of dog. It is one of the three Schnauzer breeds. Unlike the smaller versions which belong to the terrier group, the Giant is a working dog. Like most large breeds, the Giant Schnauzer needs a fair amount of exercise. When hand-stripped, the Giant Schnauzer has either a harsh, wiry outer coat and dense, soft undercoator a soft, smooth coat. Coat color is either black or salt and pepper (gray). It weighs between 32 to 45 kg and stands 259 to 70 cm at the withers. Gray giants tend to be more prone to health issues. When moving at a fast trot, a properly built Giant Schnauzer will single-track. Back remains strong, firm, and flat. The American Kennel Club lists the Giant as low shedding along with both other breeds of Schnauzers. However, Giant Schnauzers, as with almost all dogs, do shed some. When allowed, the hair on a Schnauzer will grow long, and thereby potentially increasing allergens. This can be mitigated with consistent grooming to include mostly Long hair. The Giant Schnauzer does not moult nearly as much as normal dogs nor smell when wet. Read more about Giant Schnauzer Breed here
