One of the biggest aspects of the Schnauzer breed is their fur, from the double coat to the hypoallergenic fur and the classic Schnauzer face. Starting when they’re about 4 months old, Schnauzers need to be groomed about once every 4 to 6 weeks. This keeps their fur well cared for, and can be a great part of Schnauzer puppy training and socialization. However, if this is your first Miniature Schnauzer puppy, finding the right groomer can be difficult.

Where to find a groomer

The best way to start your search is to find some options to choose from. There are a variety of ways to do this.

How to choose the right groomer

Once you’ve found some options,  cost and experience are the next two factors to consider.

The average cost of a Miniature Schnauzer haircut is about $50, and your groomer should know how to do the style you want. If you’re not sure, call and ask some questions until you find the groomer that’s right for you.

If you’re still can’t find a groomer you like, consider learning how to do it yourself. At Fernweh Schnauzers, we groom all of our dogs ourselves.

There are a lot of great tutorials and videos online to help you when you’re starting. If you do it yourself, we recommend starting with a shorter cut. Short cuts are lower maintenance, easier to learn, and great for dogs who love going outside in mud or snow.

Whatever you choose, make sure it’s the option that works best for you and your Schnauzer puppy.
