Basic Information

Schnauzers, as their name implies, originate from Germany. At first they were humble farm dogs in Bavaria. But these tough little, or not so little, dogs have conquered the Earth.

Map of Germany
Above: Munich (München) is the capital of the Bavarian region, where Schnauzers originated in the 1400's.

Schnauzers can be found anywhere from New York to Berlin; from Sydney to Rio.

To a very large degree, a lot of their behavior has roots in their past. You'll never have a leisurely walk with a Schnauzer in the woods or any other place where there are rodents or other wildlife. To a Schnauzer, every walk is an adventure.

Schnauzers were bred to hunt down mice and vermin sometime in Bavaria, the southern region of Germany, during the late 1400's. Over time they were bred larger to herd livestock and smaller to be able squeeze into tighter areas to get at more rodents.

From their farmhouse beginnings, Schnauzers moved on to take up residence in castles, protecting royalty from vermin. As their social status rose, they would be immortalized in paint by such masters as Rembrandt.

Not content to stay in Germany, the Schnauzer's Wanderlust has led them to every corner of the earth. Schnauzers first came to the United States in 1920 and instantly gained popularity.

In the modern era, Schnauzers are primarily loyal family pets. Their intensity as a ratter has turned into an intense devotion to their humans, who, in time, learn that the Schnauzer calls the shots.
