A brief presentation of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer is a hybrid of the Bolognese and Schnauzer breeds. Schnauzers belong to three breeds: Miniature, Standard and Giant. As a general rule, the Bolonauzer is a cross between the Bolognese and the Standard Schnauzer. The size and weight of your Bolonauzer will vary considerably depending on the Schnauzer breed your Bolonauzer has mixed with. The Bolonauzer is a specific crossbreed and bred as a companion. It can be difficult to determine the potential characteristics of this hybrid given the lack of detailed information, and many owners have to turn to the parent breeds for more details.

History of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer is a hybrid of the Bolognese and the Schnauzer. The mix is a specific modern crossbreed intended as a companion dog and does not have a long, well-known history. As such, owners need to look at the history of the breed's parents to understand the history of this hybrid. Today, the Bolonauzer is not a well-known hybrid, and there is little documentation on the mix. The Bolognese parent is a rare breed, but the Schnauzer is a well-known and appreciated breed. The three Schnauzer breeds that could potentially contribute to Bolonauzer's character and physical traits are closely related and vary mainly in size.
        

A little of the Bolognese Bichon

        
The Bolognese Bichon is a toy companion breed in the Water Spaniel family. Courtesans and nobility in France and Italy maintained the breed, which also goes by the name Bichon Bolognese and is closely related to the Bichon à poil frisé, frisé being a French word for frizz and referring to the soft, frizzy hair of the white-coated toy's close cousin. The breed's Italian name, Bolognese, refers to the Italian province of Bologna, where the breed is thought to have developed.

A little of the Schnauzer

The Schnauzer is thought to have developed in medieval Germany, dating back to the 15th century, when the breed was often depicted in wood carvings by Albrecht Dürer. Originally bred to help on the farm and hunt vermin, the Schnauzer also provided protection for farmers on their way to market. The name Schnauzer is a literal German translation of the moustache, and the German name, Mittelschnauzer, translates as a bearded muzzle. Breeding programs help standardize coat color from black to salt-and-pepper for this breed.

Appearance of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer has a robust body thanks to its two parent breeds, but is less compact than other Bolognese mixes because the Schnauzer adds height and weight to the hybrid. Height and weight can vary between males and females, and the coat often resembles the Schnauzer but is usually white like the Bolognese. A Bolonauzer's head is square-shaped with a longer muzzle than other Bolognese mixes, and the eyes are dark brown, oval-shaped and carry a curious, animated expression. The body appears slightly longer than it is tall, and the tail is high with a curve over the back but can be docked.

Temperament of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer is an active dog, friendly and affectionate with its family. This is a sturdy hybrid but does not mind rough play with small children. However, if socialized early, the Bolonauzer is an excellent companion for older children. The Schnauzer parent makes the Bolonauzer wary of strangers, and you can expect him to alert you when strangers approach. However, the Bolognese equalizes the mix and the Bolonauzer will settle down after meeting a new person. The Bolonauzer can be dog-friendly if it leans more towards the Bolognese parent. However, the Schnauzer can diminish this quality in the mix. Early and consistent socialization is essential for living and interacting with other dogs. They love to play and may give chase for a few minutes to the family cat, and will be more aggressive towards small animals and cats outside the family. The Bolonauzer is an intelligent and trainable mix, and this hybrid needs plenty of mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis to lead a healthy life.

Needs and activities of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer is a high-energy mix of two breeds and needs a good amount of daily exercise given its small size. However, the intensity of exercise doesn't have to be great. You can divide the exercise time into a few 30-minute sessions, and a light walk or a game of ball will keep this hybrid well exercised. It's a smart mix, and mental stimulation is just as important. Plan to play games or give your Bolonauzer a challenging task to engage its mind. If the Bolonauzer can get all its daily physical and mental exercise, it's well suited to apartment living. This mix also has a high tolerance to hot and cold temperatures, but its indoor living arrangement means it can live anywhere.

Maintenance of the Bolonauzer

The Bolonauzer is a hypoallergenic hybrid, as both parental breeds are hypoallergenic. This breed doesn't shed much, but requires frequent grooming and brushing to keep its medium-length hair mat-free. While brushing your Bolonauzer, clean its ears with a vet-approved solution to remove any dirt, wax or debris. As a hypoallergenic mixture, avoid bathing your Bolonauzer and stick to frequent brushing to distribute natural oils, remove dead and loose hairs, and remove dirt and debris from the coat. Regular brushing and cleaning of teeth is also recommended to reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease.
