Hello all.
I'm looking for a overall good family dog thats good with children.
Looking for easy to train dog , good watchdog.
Will take the dog to the groomer so either breeds won't bother me. They both don't shed!

I figured maybe the standard would be better cause they taller and good watchdog then the poodle. Dont made taking both dogs to doggy daycare to burn off there energy.

Any ideas suggestions?
Looking for a eager to please dog.
Not looking for the standard poodle due to size and weight.

Is the wiry hair on the schnauzer easier to brush then the mini poodle hair?

There isn't that much size difference between a small SPoo and a Standard Schnauzer as there is between MiniPoo and the Standard Schnauzer. There is, however, quite a bit of difference in personality between either Poodle variety and the Schnauzer.

One thing to keep in mind is that MiniPoos are a bit more delicate than either of the other two, and might not be suitable for rough and tumble play with younger children.

I can honestly recommend a true reliable breeder of Moyan down to Miniature sized Poodles in Ohio. She has been in business for over 30 years. All parents are health tested and puppies come with guarantees. She takes deposits and you need to be on a waiting list. Call her and talk to her. I have personally been there twice to get my two puppies. Her kennel is spotless and the parents are on site! She will ship if needed. Her name is Cathy She is extremely knowledgeable as well ... Windy Hill Kennel
I looked at their website, and saw so many thins that turned me off... Merle Poodles and parti-color and merle Miniature schnauzers aren't my idea of a good breeder Also, seventeen bitches and eight males (nine counting one "retired"), ordering a puppy by breed, dam, and microchip number don't say good breeder to me. Absolutely no information on health testing for any of their breeding dogs. It looks like all the dogs live in kennels. NuVet vitamins are a MLM scheme.
