The Standard Irish Wolf Schnauzer stands out among all dogs due to their giant size and distinguished features. This designer breed is meant to be a steady walking and jogging companion and requires a lot of space and between 60 - 90 minutes of exercise to keep them happy and healthy. Activities for Standard Irish Wolf Schnauzers need to help them burn off excess energy, but also be gentle on their joints and bones. Because they are so large, these dogs are at risk for damaging their joints and tendons if they are required to do jarring and repetitive activities. Standard Irish Wolf Shnauzers are also smart and need to be challenged mentally as well as physically.
Activities for Standard Irish Wolf Schnauzers need to help burn off their ample energy and give them a mental challenge to keep them out of trouble. These gentle giants are always up for a walk around the property, a game of fetch, or a dip in the lake, but they also love to be curled up next to you when they are tired. Challenging them with obedience training or Rally competitions will help you develop a strong bond and learn to work together. At such a large size, you can't make a Standard Irish Wolf Schnauzer do anything, but you can teach them how to listen and follow your lead.
