A brief presentation of the Dobie Schnauzer

This breed is intelligent and very loyal, but can be mischievous. Both parent breeds are very alert and excellent watchdogs, and should also get on well with children and other pets. Given the life expectancy of the parents, the Dobie Schnauzer should live between 10 and 14 years. They're big, friendly dogs who'll love to accompany you wherever you go.

History of the Dobie Schnauzer

Not much is known about the birth of the Dobie Schnauzer, but there is documentation on the parents. The Dobermann and Schnauzer were recently reunited to create the hybrid Dobie Schnauzer.
        

A little of the Dobermann

        
In the 1800s, the Dobermann was originally found in Apolda, Germany, where it was developed by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermannn. This man was a tax collector, and as some of his rounds were dangerous, he wanted to create a loyal and intimidating companion who could protect him. He had access to the local animal shelter while he was developing the breed, so we can't know which dogs were used to make these dogs. It is assumed that Shorthaired Shepherd Dogs, Black and Tan Terriers, German Pinschers, Rottweilers and possibly Beaucerons, Weimar Pointers, Black and Tan Manchester Terriers and Greyhounds were part of the mix. By the 1920s, the breed was popular in South Africa, the USA and Europe, including Russia.

A little of the Schnauzer

Schnauzers are descended from Affenpinschers and Poodles, as well as Dwarf Pinschers, Zwergspitzes and Wire Fox Terriers. Paintings from the 1400s show the Schnauzer, but the breed wasn't recognized until the 1800s. The breed was eventually miniaturized by two men named George Riehl and Heinrich Schott. They crossed and bred the smallest of the Schnauzer dogs until smallness was officially in their genes. Since 1924, the breed has grown in numbers and popularity in North America. They were used as farm dogs and were also good rakers.

Appearance of the Dobie Schnauzer

Dobermanns are compact dogs with long, narrow heads and athletic builds. Their eyes are dark and almond-shaped, and their ears are cropped or natural. Their tails are generally cropped or natural, and the body is proportionally built and square. The Schnauzer's physique is much smaller but robust. They are squarely built, with a distinctive beard and bushy eyebrows. This breed has small, deep eyes and high ears, which are small and V-shaped if not cropped. Their heads are rectangular with strong, blunt muzzles. Their tails are high, erect and generally docked. The hybrid's appearance is a blend of both parents.

Temperament of the Dobie Schnauzer

The Dobermann has a varied personality. Some dogs of this breed are very sociable, friendly and outgoing, while others are reserved and shy or dominant. However, all Dobermanns are known for their unwavering loyalty to their owners. They make excellent guard and protection dogs, but they don't attack. Instead, this breed will pin intruders to a wall or corner until you come to help. As with temperament, these dogs can have varying levels of training. Some are easy-going and obedient, but others can be stubborn. Schnauzers are small dogs with big personalities who love attention. They enjoy all activities with their loved ones and can sometimes be mischievous. This breed is highly intelligent and can be an excellent pet for new dog owners. They also get on well with other pets, although they can sometimes chase cats. What's more, they can be good watchdogs. Your Dobie Schnauzer will combine the traits of both, and will probably be a loyal and courageous companion.

Needs and activities of the Dobie Schnauzer

Dobie Schnauzers have high energy levels and should have a varied exercise schedule. Take them for walks, hikes and runs. As long as these dogs are working alongside you, they'll be happy. Make sure you give them enough activity, otherwise they can become destructive. This hybrid can be happy living in houses or apartments, provided it gets enough exercise. Make sure your garden is fenced, otherwise your Dobie Schnauzer could run off chasing squirrels or rabbits. These dogs enjoy earth-dog activities and agility training.

Maintenance of the Dobie Schnauzer

The Dobermann is a low-maintenance breed that should be brushed once a week. These dogs shed all year round, even though their coats are so short. These are clean animals that won't need regular bathing. Schnauzers need to be professionally groomed every five to eight weeks and hand stripped if they are show dogs. They should also be brushed two or three times a week, and have their beards wiped after eating. Your hybrid's grooming requirements will depend on the dominant parental traits in the coat. All dogs should have their teeth brushed at least two or three times a week, or every day if possible. Wipe their ears weekly to prevent infections. Finally, dogs should have their nails trimmed once or twice a month, or less if they are naturally worn. If you can hear your dog's nails clicking against the floor, they're overdue. Respect these requirements to keep your Dobie Schnauzer healthy and clean.
