Miniature Schnauzer Head Video

The Miniature Schnauzer head should be rectangular in shape, according to the AKC breed requirements. Dog groomers maintain this look by trimming the head, eyebrows and beard in such a way to enhance this appearance. (See Shaping & Grooming the Miniature Schnauzer Head).

In the video below, you will notice the Mini Schnauzer has a strong, rectangular head which diminishes slightly from ears to eyes. The forehead is not wrinkled and the topskull is flat. The sides of the skull are clean and flat. The muzzle of the Mini Schnauzer is about the same length as the topskull and it ends fairly bluntly.
