The Standard Schnauzer is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Standard Schnauzer could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a moderately active Standard Schnauzer. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Standard Schnauzer. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Standard Schnauzer is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Standard Schnauzer.
