Introduction

The Standard Schnauzer was developed as a working dog. They are protectors of their loved ones, and they are ever watchful of strangers. This makes the Standard Schnauzer an excellent guardian. They are also highly intelligent dogs that thrive on varied activities. They are known to become the alpha - even over a human that allows the behavior. While the Standard Schnauzer is more of a companion dog now, they were originally ratters. They are often described as inquisitive, a trait that can get them into trouble at times. They should be trained with praise and other rewards, such as treats.

Standard Schnauzer Dog Name Considerations

When considering what to name a Standard Schnauzer pup, one often considers the appearance and personality of the dog. The Standard Schauzer often appears wise due to the appearance of a "beard" on the dog's chin. Names that depict wisdom might include Jefferson (or Jeff, for short), Franklin, or Issac. All are nods to famous Americans who were either founding fathers, inventors, or great philosophers. The names Aristotle, Plato, or Socrates are tags inspired by ancient philosophers and thinkers whose influence is still felt today. Finally, for the pet parent who enjoys music, names such as Beethoven or Bach might honor those infamous musicians that you hold so dear. Female names that nod toward a wise, elegant dog are Eleanor, Lillian, and Victoria. These timeless names speak to the ever-present popularity of the breed. 

The Standard Schnauzer is also somewhat obstinate. Connor is a great name for a stubborn male pup; it literally translates as "strong-willed." Teela is a perfect female name meaning stubborn as well. Finally, the Standard Schnauzer is quite intelligent, and the dog is often quite inquisitive. For females, the names Zelda and Penelope just seem to exude a curious intelligence. Wren and Pepper might be fitting names for a curious male pup.
