The last one. Sorry,I am not very good with computers and I do not know the other way to show this information. i hope this will be very interesting for fans of this breed and breeders. I think this Standart is more detailed and provides better understanding of modern BRT.

I've been checking out the Black Russian on the internet, and I tend to find two different views:

1. The BRT is a dog that is not for the novice, needing a massive amount of socialisation and training to make it a safe dog (for people other than its owners that is). A lot like a giant schnauzer, but much easier to live with.

2. Lovely fluffy black dog that will play with your kids and protect them. Don't leave them in the backyard because it may windup protecting the backyard from you!

So. Which view is the more correct one?

There don't seem to be any breeders in my State that I can go have a look at this breed - still, it's currently 4th on the list of which dog do I get next. Although not on the basis of view No. 2.

1 BRT is not for novice- truth, but I would say not for soft person, otherwise the BRT will be a boss. BRT needs a lots of socialisation and traning - truth, but not to make it a safe dog, but to make it well controlled in any situation.

2 lovely fluffy black dog - no comments. Don't leave them in the backyard because it may windup protecting the backyard from you!- fake, but if BRT is a boss everything is possible.

It is up to you how BRT will behave in diffirent situations.

See post #42 there is a description of BRT's behaviour.

And about BRT and kids , you have to supervise kids with any dog any breed.

Vesper12, Thank you for all the information you've posted in here. Very much appreciated. And that's a beautiful photo above.

Quick question, in full/show coat how do they go in the Australian summer? Just be sensible like any dog or extra careful?

Thanks again.

Yes they are just sensitive as any other dogs, but there are few options to make their life a bit easy.

If you are not going to show your dog during the summer you can clip the coat, only leave coat on head, legs and the skirt. But you need to remember that it will take two -three months to grow it back. Many Russian BRTs were clipped because of very hot summer this year.

If you need coat to be in show condition, you need to brush out undercoat by using Coat King #8 or #10 and leave only that amount of undercoat that will keep shape of show clip. But you need to be extra carefull if the coat is quiet coarse, because it is too easy to remove all undercoat and it can take very long time to get it back.

And also you can clip your dog a litlle bit shoter than usually.

This is the example of short show clip

This is the summer clip, I think this dog was clipped by blade #5 or#7, this clip is very short and it will take about three more months to grow coat back to show condition.

Nice photos. I am curious though about the tails. How do they look with undocked tails?

I hate the way the Airedales look with the full tail. :)

OK I will try to add photo of Best Bitch on National show in Moscow in 2009. Owners clip her every summer and this dog is from very famous Moscow's kennel.

Interesting just how close they are to a Giant Schnauzer when clipped off!!

I thought the same.
