The Giant Schnauzers are considered to be a bigger version of Standard Schnauzers. These canines are extremely well-built and they have an immensely sturdy and robust body. These pooches are really strong willed and they have a fearless personality.

The Giant Schnauzers are very popular in a lot of European countries, but in India, the demand and availability of this breed is pretty subpar and there are a few reasons that might tell us why these pooches have a low demand in this country. First, the tolerance of these dogs to high temperatures and heat is not very good which means they require a lot more care and attention from their human parents if they are raised in a hotter country (India). Second, these pooches are not very adaptable in nature and they don’t fit that well into the apartment lifestyle. And lastly, these dogs are a bit pricey to bring home and then maintain properly. But if someone really wants to raise this canine as a pet and can provide proper care to this pooch, then the Giant Schnauzer can be a fine option for the prospective dog parent.

Given below is the average price list of the Giant Schnauzer puppies which are available in various variations.

  • Giant Schnauzer Puppy price (Basic): ₹40,000 to ₹50,000
  • Giant Schnauzer Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹50,000 to ₹65,000
  • Giant Schnauzer Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹65,000 to ₹1,00,000

If you are planning to bring home a Giant Schnauzer and you want to get this canine from a breeder, then you should look for it only at a trusted breeder’s place. A reliable breeder will know about all the needs and requirements of the pup and can efficiently guide you so that you can properly maintain and raise the pup you are interested in. Also, you get the much-needed peace of mind and a sense of satisfaction if you get the pup of your dreams from a trustworthy breeder. Therefore, to make sure you are getting the best quality and healthy canine, you should look for it only at a good breeder’s place.

Factors Affecting the Giant Schnauzer Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Giant Schnauzer price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for a Giant Schnauzer dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Giant Schnauzer puppy can cost anywhere around ₹40,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a Normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Physical features such as different coat colors of a dog can influence its overall price. In case of Giant Schnauzers, these pooches are only found in two different colors which are Black and Salt & Pepper and because of this, their overall price is not affected that much by their physical attributes unlike some other breeds who can have loads of different coat colors.

Age & Gender

It is usually seen that male canines are sold at a bit of a higher price as compared to female dogs. Also, it is a well-known thing that young dogs and puppies cost way more when we compare their price to older pooches.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Giant Schnauzer is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

The Giant Schnauzers have a subpar availability in the country and as we know, canines that are not very easily available in a region tend to cost more especially compared to those pooches that are readily available in that region, thus, the overall price of the Giant Schnauzers is on a higher side.

Reputed Breeder

It is also quite common for the Popular or reputed breeders to sell canines at a bit of a higher price as compared to those breeders who are not as well-known as them. This again influences the overall price of a dog in an area.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
