The Miniature Schnauzer grooming chart below shows the basic steps for grooming your Miniature Schnauzer pet. I want to emphasize the word pet
because, although the cut may appear to be show quality, it is not.
*** Show quality Schnauzers require hand stripping of the coat.

How to Groom Your Mini Schnauzer
Start by brushing your Miniature Schnauzer out thoroughly. You will want to make sure your dog is free of mats and tangles before beginning to clip or cut the hair.
Using #8 or #10 blade begin moving clippers downward from the base of the skull to the tail.
Follow the pattern in the diagram above, clipping downward on either
sides of your Schnauzer's body to just about an inch above the hocks.
When clipping the top of the skull, cheeks, and throat, gently move the clippers against the grain being careful not to apply to much pressure.
Continue clipping downward on the chest area stopping just at the shoulder blades.
Using scissors, shape legs, underbody furnishings, and tail, as above.
When trimming the Schnauzer eyebrows and shaping the beard, face your dog and comb
hair forward. Cut a straight line to the outer corner of the eye.
Don't remove too much of the beard but do trim it up a bit also.
