Standard Schnauzers are vivacious dogs that are devoted to their owners and affectionate to children. Their senses are highly developed and they are very vigilant, although they do not bark much.

Schnauzers are robust, somewhat squat, medium-sized dogs native to southern Germany, where they were used as stable dogs because they were especially comfortable around horses. They would kill rodents with a single bite, earning themselves a reputation as ratters. When the Pinscher and Schnauzer breed club was established in 1895, they were still known as wirehaired Pinschers.
