Bolonauzer
The Standard Bolonauzer is a 50/50 mix between the Bolognese and the Standard Schnauzer breeds. This hybrid is a medium sized dog that, thanks so the height boost from the Schnauzer, leaves his more compact genes behind. With long legs and athletic body, the Standard Bolonauzer is an active breed who combines high intelligence with an easy-going love of life and passion for playtime. Although the personality and the appearance of hybrid breeds can vary greatly, the average Standard Bolonauzer has fur like the Schnauzer, with the coloring of the Bolognese being the most common. He is hypoallergenic and doesn't shed often, making him the perfect option for those dog owners who don't feel well once the fur starts flying.

Standard Bolonauzer Breed History

The Standard Bolonauzer is a newer hybrid breed, therefore, we need to take a look at his parents in order to learn more about his history. The Bolognese breed is just one of the many Bichon breeds that exists in the world today. Originally hailing from the Mediterranean, these little white breeds have been travelling around the world for thousands of years. Used as popular trading goods for their fun personalities and adorable appearances, the Bolognese was popular as a companion to noble ladies and rich households who could afford them. These pampered little puff balls were always well loved for their affectionate and playful personalities; they make the perfect lap dogs. Eventually, their popularity brought them to Europe in 1990 where they were then shown and accepted by the United Kennel Club in 1995. Ever since, the Bolognese has been a primary companion for people everywhere, as well as an accomplished showman. The Standard Schnauzer is the oldest out of the three Schnauzer types. All of the Schnauzers, regardless of size, were working dogs who had jobs such as guarding the family property, hunting vermin, and protecting the master as he went about his business in town. This breed obtained his personality and appearance from breeds such as the black standard Poodle, the Wirehaired Pinscher, and the gray Wolfspitz. With a unique look and self-confident nature, the Schnauzers were eventually used in shows starting around the 1870's their popularity began to increase. Eventually making their way to the United States in early 1900's, the Schnauzer continued to be a faithful companion as well as a showman, and was finally recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1905. To this day, the Standard Schnauzer is still a very popular breed and can still be seen as a farm hand, companion, and show dog.

Standard Bolonauzer Breed Appearance

Due to the Standard Bolonauzer being a hybrid breed, nailing down a specific appearance can be tricky as it can vary quite a lot. However, more often than not, the Standard Bolonauzer is a medium sized breed with loosely curled fur, most like the Bolognese breed, that can come in a few different colors (most common being white). This medium to long fur does not shed often, making the breed hypoallergenic but the length and color tend to make for a moderate to high maintenance requirement. The Standard Bolonauzer has a sturdy body that can vary in height and weight between male and female. The features are composed of a square head with long muzzle, dark brown oval eyes, and big ears that can be carried either erect or loose upon the head. From nose to tail tip (either long and curved, or docked) the Standard Bolonauzer is a unique sight to see.

Standard Bolonauzer Breed Maintenance

There is no doubt that with such curly fur, the Standard Bolonauzer is going to need quite a bit of grooming attention. In order to keep the fur clean and free from knots, weekly brushing (if not daily) will be required using a pin brush and comb. A dematter tool may also be extremely useful for those particularly wild days! If you have a white, or lighter colored Standard Bolonauzer, bathing will be required frequently. Although this breed does not have a bad odor, teary eyes and lots of outdoor interactions can cause the fur to become stained and dirty. When bathing, it is a great idea to use a gentle shampoo or whitening treatment to keep the dog's fur spotless while also being kind to the skin. Additionally, always be sure to pay careful attention to your dog's ears, and remove any extra moisture or debris that may be trapped inside. Neglecting this step can lead to ear infections or irritation. Lastly, be sure to keep your dog's nails trimmed so that scratching, snagging, and tears can be avoided.

Standard Bolonauzer Temperament

The Standard Bolonauzer has an ever present affection for his family, however, he can tend to be a bit shy around strangers. This comes from both the Bolognese, who tends to be more of a one person dog, and the Schnauzer, who is quite spirited and loyal. Because of this tendency, the Standard Bolonauzer does best with early socialization and plenty of training to build trust between him and his owner; this will encourage healthy interactions between the Standard Bolonauzer and people in general. When it comes to children, the Standard Bolonauzer will do better with those who are closer to the age of 10 and up. Smaller children can be a bit grabby and excitable, which can be a bit much for the Standard Bolonauzer to handle. Such instances could turn to nipping, snapping, or barking, all of which are bad habits that should be avoided. With early socialization and training, you can ensure that your Standard Bolonauzer will do better in such situations. Additionally, while the loving and loyal nature of this breed is desirable, keep in mind that his attachment to his people can lead to separation anxiety. Start training your puppy early through crate training and time alone so that he can over come any potential anxiety and live a happy life, whether he is with you all the time or not. Overall, despite his downsides, the Standard Bolonauzer is a great family pet who is lively, dependable, and affectionate.

Standard Bolonauzer Activity Requirements

While the Standard Bolonauzer is a mix of two higher energy breeds, the intensity of his exercise requirements does not need to be great. Through a couple hours of moderate engagement, the Standard Bolonauzer can use his energy in a productive way and then be perfectly content to nap and hang out the rest of the day. A few great activities to help this breed burn off steam may be a short jog, a long walk, training, or a game of fetch. None of these interactions are high intensity, but they are perfect for keeping the Standard Bolonauzer fit and out of trouble.
