Overview
The Black Russian Terrier is a large size dog with square or slightly stretched frame, efficient, easily adaptable to different climatic conditions and owners life-style, intelligent, well trainable. He is active, but dignified, and will delight in joining you in fishing, swimming, biking or hiking. He's happiest with an owner who can give him plenty of jobs to do (like playing games, obedience, agility training).
Character
Black Russian Terriers are intelligent, loyal, strong, enduring, courageous, self-confident protective and reliable. Balanced temperament and good trainability allow successful use in many working modalities and canine sports. Black Russian Terriers are a wonderful companion and a loyal family member.
Temperament
Active, hardy large breed with stable temperament, but very lively, with strong reactions of defence: unwanted visitors are stopped. This dog is tough, brave, alert, and loyal. This breed gets along fine with children and other animals, provided proper socialization has taken place.
Care
Weekly grooming with a brush and comb is required. The ears, nails and teeth require ample attention. Scissoring or clipping for a Black Russian Terrier is sufficient 3-4 times a year.
Coat
The virtually non-shedding hair is rough, hard, ample and extremely dense, between 1.6 and 3.9 inches long and covers the entire body with dense and well-developed undercoat. The coat forms a rough, bushy moustache on the upper lip and a beard on the lower lip. On the neck and the withers, the coat is longer and forms a mane. The forelegs down until the elbows and the hind legs until the thighs are covered by a rough and long coat.
Training
Training is a breeze as this breed rates higher than average in learning speed and problem solving skills.
Activity
This breed will do well in urban, suburban or country setting with reasonable amounts of exercise. Black Russian Terriers are happiest when doing some type of work, such as playing games, agility, obedience, or protection. Over-exercising when young can cause damage to growing bones, joints, and muscles.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Black Russian Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The B.R.T is a great guard and watch dog. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving. Your friend could benefit from having one for her property. But your friend must do his/her research about the breed. They are aloof with strangers and very, very loyal and protective of their owners. So if he/she expects the dog to guard/watch the property all day and then have no issues with his/her kids friends coming over, or family members coming over, then he/she needs to get a different dog.

The Black Russian Terrier is not normally used as a service dog as they are wary of stranger's and can be very protective of their owner's. Having them in service work could backfire as the dog would not allow help to come to the person in need. Although they could become a service dog if trained properly. Contact your local Service Dog Trainer and ask them for more information on which breeds may be best for you.

The Black Russian Terrier does need brushing once a week. But if you carve out 10 minutes every day, it is even better. Brushing solidifies the bond between dog and human, so the more you spend time grooming your dog, the better the bond. As well, you will know instantly when your dog has an issue such as a lump, bump or sore spot. But in general, yes the B.R.T should be brushed once a week. The Poodle breed as well should be brushed thoroughly once a week,

they can live anywhere between 10 to 14 years. Black Russian Terriers are outstanding guard dogs.

The BRT is VERY protective of what he thinks is his, especially his meal ticket (that's you), so no one else should feed him. Mats? The BRT is a mat machine (new ones appear overnight). If you don't slicker him all over EVERY day, you will have to shear him Spring and Fall. They love the Winter and snow, and suffer in the heat. I think they'd love a dog house made of ice blocks. The BRT is a LOT of dog. If you want one, you either know exactly what you are doing, or you haven't a clue and better get an elderly Golden Retriever instead.

I heard they have anti-allergic properties. My wife has highly allergic symptoms to almost everything and she has no symptom at all with our black russian terrier.

I have a Black Russian Terrier, and they get along with all animals that they meet before 3 months old. They absolutely love children and other dogs they know.
