A well-bred Giant Schnauzer closely resembles the standard Schnauzer – only larger. As their name suggests, the Giants are putting up.
A male can weigh 27.5 on the shoulder and weigh 95 pounds. The muscular, substantial body is, as the fanatics of the breed call it, “”the bold and brave figure of a dog.”” The double coat is either solid black or “”pepper and salt.”” The familiar features of the Mini, Standard and Giant are a stiff beard and eyebrows, reflecting a deep, sharp expression.
The Giant Schneiser was developed in the Bavarian Alps in the mid-1800s. These rugged Working Dogs, bred from standard Schnauzer, were used to bring cattle from the farm to the market.
They also served as formidable Guard Dogs for farmers, traders and innocent people. After the railroad turned cattle trains obsolete, the Giants found work as European police and military K-9s. In the US, the Giants earned a name as eye-catching show dogs, obedience champions, and courageous guardians of home and family.

Highly intelligent and strongly territorial, the giant Schnauzer loves his bosses and feels a lot of responsibility to protect them. He learns quickly and can distinguish between friend and foe. Giants want to live with their owners and cannot be ignored or left in the yard. A Giant Schnauzer also needs to do something as simple as chasing a ball. The Giant is a “high-energy, protective, regional Guard Dog,” says a fan of a major breed. “Ethnicity is not for the casual owner.” Giants do their best with fencing running rooms, regular exercise and activities that provide mental and physical exercise. They enjoy dog sports such as karting, herring, agility, ability testing, and obedience. Early socialization and puppy training classes are a must with this strong, protective breed.
More energetic and up-tempo than most larger breeds, Giants require a lot more exercise. It would be nice to take long daily walks, play sessions with other dogs or romance with their owners in the yard.
