The Standard is sturdy, strong, thick in build and stubborn to a fault. The breed is naturally wary of strangers and requires early socialization to ensure a well-balanced dog. He is loyal and loving to his family and intolerant of strange dogs or strange people in his territory. Intelligent and ready for training, this breed excels with a firm owner that sets early clear boundaries. He needs an owner that provides both consistent, mental, and physical exercise to prevent boredom and negative behaviors from developing.

The coat of a Standard Schnauzer is medium in length and either the soft American style coat, or the hard German style of coat. The breed offers very little shedding and is considered to be hypo-allergenic with low dander, making them a good choice for many with allergies. Brushing is needed to maintain the coat and prevent matting. Professional grooming is recommended to trim the coat and keep it in shape. Ears on the Schnauzer can be naturally floppy or cropped to stand erect. The tail can be naturally long or docked short. The colors of a Schnauzer can be black, silver, black and silver, or pepper and salt.
