It has a short, wiry upper coat, and a softer coat underneath that.

It's very trainable and reasonably intelligent, and very friendly toward others, so it can be a good family pet. It has a tendency to bark a lot, especially when playing, but will not usually bark to alert for intruders, so the Schnekingese is not very well suited for watchdog duties.
