For me this fabulous breed is one of the world’s most beautiful once. When I see a jet-black imposing Giant Schnauzer with a shiny, black wire coat posing like a top-class stallion I am in paradise. This breed gave Kari and me a lot of pleasure in our earlier years and we made up four champions. One of them being a BIS winner. A Giant should be powerfully built, robust and appearing almost square. It’s an imposing animal with a keen expression and alert attitude. When you look a Giant Schnauzer in his sharp eyes you should clearly be told that he tolerates you, but that he likes to be in charge. For me the coat is crucial, and I don’t like the modern way of trimming with masses of soft hair both on front and hind legs. Some of the dogs I have seen recently look more like Russian Black Terriers than Schnauzers. If that is what you like, please stay away from me because they make me depressed.
