Its development came about through the combination of other breeds such as German Pinscher, Great Dane, Bouvier des Flandres amongst others. It became popular as a military dog during World War I and World War II.
The first of its kind emerged in the German state of Bavaria, in Swabia. Originally, it was bred as a farm dog used for guarding property and driving animals to the market. By the 20th century, it was being used as a watchdog at factories and a couple more places.
Giant Schnauzer is quiet by nature although it has a tendency to be aggressive. Being an intelligent breed, it can easily get bored, which can lead to destructive behavior. Its temperament is well suitable for families with an active lifestyle and older children.
The Giant Schnauzer is a breed with incredible mental dexterity and craves exercise. It thrives well in an environment where the family will be able to spend ample time with it. The breed does better in a large environment where it can play in; it is not recommended in environments with young children.
Being highly energetic, the Giant Schnauzer requires not less than two long walks daily, but in cases where it cannot be taken for a long walk, vigorous backyard exercise should be done for at least 30 to 60 minutes daily.
The Giant Schnauzer has minimal shedding ability hence it needs regular attention to remove dead coat from its body. It is recommended to take this breed to a groomer approximately every 6 to 10 weeks in order to maintain its looks. On the other hand, the owner can learn the act of proper grooming as this increases the bond between dog and owner.
