Schnauzer (Giant)

Giant Schnauzers are a working dog developed in the 17th century in Bavaria, Germany. They are the largest of the three breeds of Schnauzer—the other two breeds being the Standard Schnauzer and the Miniature Schnauzer. They can be a handful, even for experienced owners! The key to living successfully with them is providing an appropriate mix of training, socialization, and physical and mental stimulation.

Health problems that can affect the breed include Hip dysplasia, Elbow dysplasia and Eye problems.
