Standard Schnoodle Breed Maintenance
The Schnoodle will need a moderate amount of maintenance, depending on the exact genetics he inherits from his parent breeds. While the Schnoodle is not prone to shedding, owners will need to keep the dog trimmed regularly. Perhaps clipping him is an option. Either way, he will need to be brushed at least once or twice a week to prevent matting. You may need to keep his beard trimmed as well. Remember, his beard can collect water and food, so you may need to clean it after every meal. Bathe him as necessary; this should be done on a weekly basis. It is recommended that you blow his hair dry after a bath (with your blow dryer on low setting) to prevent matting as well. You may also have to have the coat stripped a number of times a year; your groomer can advise you on the frequency. You should also check his ears once a week for redness and odor; use a damp cotton ball to wipe away any excess dirt. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent the build-up of tartar; if you wish to prevent tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Trim his nails every two weeks if he does not wear them down naturally.
