Obviously, you must also brush the beard and leg fur. Remember that brushing is not only necessary for a healthy coat, but it is also a habit that can healthily discipline your dog and will eventually become enjoyable for your pet, although at first, it may be a little worried.
The frequency with which you should bath a Schnauzer will obviously vary according to its size. A Miniature Schnauzer requires a bath roughly once every 10 days. However, Giant or Standard Schnauzers will need bathing around once a month.
However, in any case, it is always essential to use a shampoo that's specifically for pets, as human shampoo can be harmful and does not suit a Schnauzer's kind of hair and dermis at all.
It is not advisable to let the fur air dry. The best option is to use a hairdryer to at least remove most of the moisture from both layers of the coat.
You can start to trim your Schnauzer's fur from 15 months old. Obviously, just like any other breed, your Schnauzer dog this will need regular cutting to keep its coat in top condition.
However, cutting a Schnauzer's fur is not as simple as it may seem. With these dogs, it is recommended to use a technique called trimming or stripping which consists of removing or plucking the dead hair, rather than cutting the wiry outer coat. These practices are mainly used to show dogs. Many owners opt for more conventional techniques because stripping by plucking can be painful for the dog.
