Will a BRT Fit Into My Lifestyle And My Home?

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.

BRTs are cold weather dogs.  They do not like heat and humidity. This is not to say that if you live in a warm climate you cannot have a BRT, but be aware that they are less tolerant of the heat than some other breeds and will want to be inside with the air conditioner on during the warm months.

Owning a BRT is a major responsibility, but they will reward you a million times over with their love. They are not the breed for everyone, however, due to their size and their need to be a major part of your family. Realize that they will be very large, strong, powerful, dominate dogs.  They can have tough personalities.  If you plan to own one you should have previous experience with Dobermans, Rottweilers, German Shephard Dog or other strong guardian breeds. They are NOT recommended for the inexperienced dog owner.
