Ear: Carefully and gently wipe your dog's ears with a cotton ball. It is important to note this part is critical for a Schnoodle dog since they’re prone to ear infections.
Hair: Use olive oil to groom this dog's fur due to its sensitive skin. Put some amount of olive oil into your hands and spread the olive oil into the dog's fur. This adds a lot of moisture and softness to the fur.

Nails: You need to use dog clippers to trim the nails. The majority of Schnoodle dogs have black nails and it’s a bit difficult to identify quickly, so be careful not to trim them too much and hurt the dog.
Teeth: The other good practice is tooth brushing and this should begin at a young age to enjoy the maximum benefit do it daily.
Eyes: Schnoodle fur grows across the eyes as well. Dog’s fur can become a breeding ground for bacteria if left unattended. Bacteria are also the main cause of eye infection.
To protect the dog's eye use blunt-edged scissors to trim the fur around the edges of your Schnoodle's eye.
