Schnauzers are recognized by the AKC as a Terrier breed. They are known to be athletic, outgoing, happy, and pleasantly energetic. Schnauzers are not typically hyperactive and, as they age, settle down into calm adults. What we love so much about them is their interactive and social personalities. It's what makes a schnauzer excellent family pets!
Schnauzers are extremely popular as family pets! They are no different than other dogs when it comes to finding the right fit for your family. Not all puppies or dogs are comfortable around children. Though we do raise our schnauzer puppies to be social and are often around children, some may prefer adults or be unsettled around children. No matter what dog breed you are interested in, it is highly recommended you consider personality when selecting a puppy!

In most instances, schnauzers are great with other dogs. It is in their nature to be social, making them lovely companions for other dogs. They are typically affectionate and playful with other dogs! This wonderful nature of theirs makes them (typically) good companions with cats, too. This is best seen when the puppy is introduced and raised with cats as a puppy. Adult schnauzers' first introduction to cats should be closely monitored, as with any dog breed.
Historically, terrier breeds were used to hunt rodents and vermin. A schnauzer's natural instincts make them unsuited for interaction with pets like hamsters, gerbils, rats, ferrets, guinea pigs, and other small, caged animals. While they may not intend to do any harm, playing too rough may cause unexpected harm to the smaller critters. We suggest you keep this in mind when selecting your puppy!
