About the breed

Let us introduce you to the pride of Russian cynology (science about dogs) the Black Russian Terrier, bred in Russia in the beginning of the 50’s.
It is a very young breed. It’s development was based on already existing elite dog breeds, such as the Giant Schnauzer, Airedale, Rottweiller, Newfoundland crossbreeding them with the Great Dane, Caucasian Shepherd and many other breeds. In total about 17 breeds were used in the experiment.
The intent of the process of creating Black Russian Terrier was to produce a large and strong dog with great working endurance. The breed was developed to guard household and military installations in various climatic conditions. Because of its military nature there was an absolute ban on the dogs export from the country.
Only in the beginning of 80’s did the Black Russian Terrier debut on the dog show in Holland. The popularity of the breed is growing at an astonishing rate in many countries all over the world thanks to the combination of unique qualities of a guard dog and a companion dog. It is with affection that Finnish breeders have named this breed the “Black Pearl of Russia”.
It is difficult to pass Black Russian Terrier on the street without turning your head. Blacky has an extravagant appearance; it is a handsome dog with rich coat and luxurious beard and mustache, well-developed muscles and massive bone structure. The height of the dogs varies from 26 to 31 inches (66 to 80 cm) at the withers. The “Russian Giant” has a combination of strength and power with grace and elegance. The uniqueness of the breed allows BRT to live equally successfully on the backyard of the country house and in the apartment. Despite his large frame at home the dog is very compact and would take up relatively little space and will never bother and bug the owner.
BRT substantially differs from other long coated breeds. BRT owners do not have a problem with the dog’s hair on their clothing and carpets because Blackies do not shed. And one more indisputable advantage of the breed – their coat is odorless even after swimming or being soaked through in the rain.
Ideal character, stable temperament and lively mind of the BRT provide a real pleasure to their owners. An astonishingly delicate understanding of the human nature sets Blackies apart from other breeds. They communicate with children very well, with care and tenderness, allowing them to do virtually everything to them. Parents can safely leave their children with that “Bearded babysitter”. In the family BRT is a placid and very tender companion.
BRT will enjoy following its owner during the long hikes, Blacky loves to swim and will fetch for its owner from water with a great joy. Actually, all BRT owners are sure that this is an extraordinary dog concerning its general appearance, working abilities and, of utmost importance, its exceptional character.
If that shaggy black giant comes to your home, it will not only be your faithful friend, but also a reliable guard of your family. Blacky works both at home and during the walk. BRT knows for sure that the only work he has is to guard the owner, its “pack” and home. This dog does not attack without a reason, but in extreme situation he will always be equal to it.
BRT is a working breed. And it means that the four-legged Hercules with its strength and power, intellect and craft needs to be very well trained and educated, and it is especially important for the dog living in the city.
Overall, the BRT nature can be described pretty briefly as follows: protective, but not aggressive, independent, but not stubborn, a friend, but not a slave.
