A Schnoodle is a small domestic dog. It is a cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle, and Schnoodle is a portmanteau word combining the two breed names
Appearance:
Poodles come in four sizes, Standard, Medium, Miniature and Toy, or three sizes, Standard, Miniature and Toy, depending on where they are registered. Schnauzers, come in three sizes, Standard Schnauzer (the original), Giant, and Miniature. The Schnoodle is usually a cross of the smaller sizes. 7 - 16 pounds is typically the size implied when an owner speaks of a Schnoodle, but a puppy buyer must visit the breeder's kennel and see the parents to get an idea of the adult size of their Schnoodle.

A Schnoodle puppy can take on the coat characteristics of either breed, such as developing the rough and coarse/wiry hair of the Schnauzer, the softer hair of the Poodle, or any intermediary coat. Some schnoodles develop coarser Schnauzer-like hair on certain parts of the body (most notably the back) with other softer Poodle-like areas. When the Schnauzer is the dominate breed, the fur will have less of the curl from the poodle fur. The beard will also be more noticeable (poodles also have a beard but it is usually shaved off.) Schnoodle colors include black, white, brown, grey and apricot. Multi-colored dogs can include "phantom," which takes on the coloring of a doberman, black & white, sable or parti. Seeing the parents will give an idea of the colors to expect

Schnoodles are first-generation crosses, with two purebred parents, one a Poodle and the other a Schnauzer. According to Newsweek, Schnoodles are "rising to canine stardom" . The 2nd generation Schnoodle is crossed with a 1st generation Schnoodle and Poodle. The 3rd is crossed with 2nd generation back to poodle. There for the further the generation the better chance for a nice coat.

Hybrids are crosses between two species, such as domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) and other canids such as Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes), but the word hybrid has become fashionable, as in hybrid car, and is taken to imply something special. Breeders of pet dog crosses prefer to refer to their crosses as hybrids rather than the more ordinary sounding traditional term, crossbreeds.

The Schnoodle is listed with minor kennel clubs and other organizations that require little documentation or that specialize in crossbreeds (although the groups more fashionably call the dogs hybrids.) Major national kennel clubs can only register dogs as one breed, and dogs are registered with major kennel clubs so as to provide a record for future breeding. The Schnoodle is two breeds, and is not usually bred, in order to increase genetic diversity in their relatively small population. Therefore, Schnoodles are not registered with major national kennel clubs such as the Canadian Kennel Club. As with other crosses, the popularity of Schnoodles has led to a rise in puppy mills selling the breed. Please be sure you are buying from a reputable breeder..

A puppy can take on the coat characteristics of either breed, such as developing the rough and coarse/wiry hair of the Schnauzer, the softer hair of the Poodle, or any intermediary coat. Some schnoodles develop coarser Schnauzer-like hair on certain parts of the body (most notably the back) with other softer Poodle-like areas. Schnoodle colors include black, white, brown, grey and apricot. Multi-colored dogs can include "phantom," which takes on the coloring of a doberman, black & white, sable or parti. These dogs do not shed and are great pets. They are not too small but do not grow that big. Sometimes the dogs' hair will have some gray in it if the mother was white. It will look gray if the dogs are black.

Puppies in the same litter may have differing coat qualities and may or may not exacerbate allergies. Their fur does not shed like other breeds, but grows more like human hair. This requires weekly brushing and grooming every 2 to 3 months to ensure matting does not become an issue. There is no certain "breed" cut for a schnoodle; most dogs receive a general groom (with, say, a #7 shears) with rounded or squared-off (for a more terrieresque look) semi-long hair left on the face.

 Hypoallergenic coats
Schnoodles have become more popular as individuals are looking for companion animals that are hypoallergenic, and train easily. Because both poodles and schnauzers are hypoallergenic, or non-shedding, they are guaranteed to have a hypoallergenic coat

Health and Behavior
Like poodles, some schnoodles will develop a large amount of in-the-ear hair. This must be removed by a vet or groomer to prevent fairly persistent ear infections that result.[citation needed Like both the poodle and schnauzer, the schnoodle may require expression of the anal glands a couple times per year; a vet or groomer can perform this service. It is also a good idea to clean the discharge from under a schnoodle's eyes in order to minimize tear-staining, particularly on animals with a white coat.

Since Schnoodles are directly bred from the intelligent poodle, as well as the intelligent schnauzer, schnoodles are commonly a very intelligent breed. They are often easy to train as long as they have motivation and are constantly challenged. They need a structured living situation or else their intelligence might become overwhelming and they will learn how to control situations. Schnoodles are great family pets and are excellent with children of all ages. They are also very playful and athletic and typically have high energy levels.

 SCHNOODLE INFORMATION
The Schnoodle is an intelligent, hypo allergenic non shedding dog if second or third generation. 
They make great family pets as they are robust, and can take the 'ruff stuff' young children can dish out in fun and games (within reason).
Our Schnoodles can have three different types of coat, straight, wavy and curly which are all easy to maintain. Schnoodles are popular due to their cute looks, trainability and fun loving personality. A lot of people are mislead about Schnoodles as they all are not non shedding dogs, a Schnauzer crossed with a poodle is most of the time a shedding dog, they have to be at least second or third generation to be non shedding. Life expectancy is 12 - 16 years.
 Schnoodle Colours
Common Schnoodle colours include black, silver, apricot, 
cream and white.
Rare Schnoodle colors are chocolate, café,  red,
 phantom and parti
