SCHNOODLES
What is a Schnoodle?  The Schnoodle is a hybrid dog breed, popularly known as a designer breed.  They are not a purebred dog, but a careful breeding between the purebred Poodle and the purebred Schnauzer to achieve the wonderful traits of both breeds.  They also can be found in many colors.   People with allergies generally find these dogs are better for their allergies.  

The Schnoodle has the best of both breeds traits, smart Poodle genes and curlier hair.  The Poodle is considered to be the second most intelligent dog next to the Border Collie.  Schnauzers are also very smart and easily trained and high on the intelligent chart.  Toy Poodles are generally considered not good for children because of their very fine bone structure.  However, the sturdy bone structure of the Schnauzer brings a sturdy structure to the Schnoodle breed and we have found them to be an excellent pet for children.
What a pistol!  Smart, active and adorable.    

Our F2 Schnoodles are smaller in size due to being bred by our Toy Poodle that is only 4 pounds.  The Schnoodle has a place as a lap dog, a family dog, a therapy dog or a performance dog.  The vast majority of them are small dogs.  The appeal of this hybrid breed is that they generally have the Poodle willingness to please, mixed with the sturdiness and activity of the Schnauzer.  Playful and lovable, this dog lives to have fun and is always the center of attention.  The Schnoodle is cheerful and intelligent.  Described as "forever happy", this designer dog's favorite joys of life are playing and hanging out with his family.  Bred to be a companion dog, the Schnoodle has proven that he can do well in agility and as a therapy dog.  He makes a terrific jogging companion, and his love of activity can get you off the couch.  He will fill your life and lap with love and laughter.

The schnoodle is loyal like the Schnauzer and fun-loving like the Poodle.  Like his Schnauzer parent, a Schnoodle has a protective nature and makes a good watch dog.  Like his Poodle parent, he's smart and affectionate.  There's less of the Poodle's high energy and less of the Schnauzer's stubbornness.  A Schnoodle loves the people in his life and thrives when he's with them.  A small Schnoodle can do well in an apartment.  Schnoodles are considered to be non-to low shedders and may make good pets for people with allergies.

Our Toy Schnoodles will be smaller on the height and weight charts. 

This is why we are offering a smaller form of companion/therapy dogs for families that do not have room for our larger Labradors.
