The Black Russian Terrier or simply BRT is a large, strong, massive, muscular dog breed. It seeks intense contact with humans, loves to be with the family. Close contact with the family brings out the best qualities of this breed. It is easy to housebreak, and does not need to be trained to accept the leash.

This dog breed is very intelligent and easy to train. It is able to do almost anything: protection, herding, obedience, tracking, sled dog, agility and show dog.




The natural and untrimmed coat length is between two to six inches, coarse, thick, weatherproof, wiry and bristly but close lying wavy. The head furnishing is very well developed and forms eyebrows, moustaches and beard. It is recommended to see a groomer every 6 weeks.
