BRTs want to be with you.  Do you own a big car or van so your BRT can go for rides with you to the park, beach, post office, etc?

The BRT is a house dog. A small house or apartment  is suitable as long as the BRT goes for walks and plays outside. The yard should be fenced and the BRT obedience trained through the basics: come, sit, stay, down, and he should walk on leash without dragging you down the street.

A BRT needs obedience training. It is imperative that obedience training be done. The obedience training must be of the positive reinforcement type. BRTs respond well to love, praise, and especially treats.  A minimum of one full year in obedience lessons are recommended, not only to train the dog, but to continue with his socialization.  Socialization of your BRT is an ongoing process and should be continued into adulthood.  An unsocialized dog will become overly protective and difficult to handle.

An adult male BRT can go through 40 pounds of dry dog food a month. That's a rough estimate of $50- $75 a month in food alone.

Your breeder will also want you, and may require you by contract to perform specific tests such as hip and elbow certification, and heart, eye and thyroid tests to determine the soundness of the breed line.  These tests can run an additional $400—$700 over the cost of the dog.

BRTs are wonderful companions. They are not dogs to be left outside, chained to a doghouse, or to be left alone in a fenced yard. They desperately need lots of human companionship to be properly socialized and trained. We have found that behavioral problems occur when a BRT is not a member of the family, but relegated to the backyard with only occasional human contact. No reputable breeder will sell a BRT to a home where they will be kept outside.

Are you interested in a BRT? Owning a BRT can be the beginning of a wonderful relationship with years of happiness, or it can be the beginning of overwhelming responsibility for which you may not be prepared.

The best place to begin searching for dog food reviews is online. There are many sites which are devoted to collecting customer responses to specific dog food brands and formulas. However, it's important to be careful when navigating these sites, since some of them are funded by certain dog food companies. In order to ensure that you obtain a generally unbiased dog food review, try to compare customer responses to a product on several websites. This will allow you to obtain a better understanding of benefits/problems that people associate with a specific dog food formula.
You can also find out about the best dog food by simply asking fellow dog owners. Chances are, a few of your friends or neighbors also own a dog. Don't be afraid to ask them about their experiences with different dog food formulas, as well as any brands that they recommend.

It is best if you do a bit of research about how to take care of a dog before deciding to accept a dog as a member of your household. Caring for a dog involves a lot of responsibility, since you will be the sole provider for your dog’s social, dietary and health-related needs. You will also need to be prepared to train your dog, since this is also a very important part of understanding how to take care of a dog. Here is a general guide that will familiarize you with how to take care of a dog, as well as provide tips to help you keep your dog healthy.

Getting a canine companion shouldn't be a result of impulse buying while you happen to be strolling in the mall. Something that may strike one’s fancy can later on turn out to be one’s biggest regret.

In general, a good breeder does his job as a “hobby”. Unlike puppy millers, real breeders breed puppies on a limited basis: the goal is not have more puppies and more money, but to have healthy, lively young little dogs.

Caring for a Black Russian Terrier has its own challenges. To further understand the function of the breed, it was developed to be a military or work dog, used for guarding borders, prisons and even military bases. A dog like this needs a firm handler for it will push its boundaries if it has a weak master.
