Living Area: The Black Russian Terrier is a dog that forms very strong bonds with its owner. It needs to have close human contact to be happy and feel loved. This is not the type of dog that will do well living in a kennel environment. The yard size and house size are not necessarily that important because the Black Russian Terrier is a relatively inactive indoor dog. They are most likely to follow the owner around the yard and remain in very close proximity to them. If the Black Russian Terrier is left outside it will generally wait by the door to be let back in the home to be with the owner. If people are interested in having a large dog in an apartment environment this is an excellent choice. They are quite content to be inside with their owners and families. However, if the dog does live in a small living space it is important for the owner to make the efforts to take the dog for walks and other exercise.

About this Breed

The Black Russian Terrier is a larger than mid-size dog with a robust and muscular stature. They are also known to have a strong nervous system. They are very powerful dogs with extremely well developed muscles. In accordance with this the shoulders should be large and muscular with blades that are broad and sloping. The head should be long, strong, and block shaped with a large skull. The nose should be large and black in color with full pigmentation. The ears are rather small in size and triangular in shape and are set quite high. The ears should not be cropped. The jaws should be large and powerful and the mouth meaty. Further to this, the lips should be full and rounded and black at the ridges with teeth that meet in a scissors bite. The neck should be muscular, thick, and powerful. It is also important that the length of the body is in direct proportion to the height at the withers. This gives the dog a square look. The topline of the dog should appear to be level but not flat or straight. The legs should be parallel to each other and covered in about 2-4 inches of hair. The feet are large and bear-like and should be compact and rounded in shape. The feet are also fully covered in hair and have large black pads. The black pads are to be thick and firm. The tail is to be cropped and set high. The hindquarters are well defined and muscular with a high degree of angulation. They should be slightly farther apart than the forelegs. The hocks are large and built for spring and drive. The Black Russian Terrier has a very well coordinated, strong, and powerful gait. Despite their large size and muscular stature they appear to be very light on their feet. They are said to walk as if they have a spring in their step.
