  • HAs anyone groomed a BLACK RUSSIAN terrier?

    nyhow aske dhis owner all sorts of questions - And found out he has groomed him all by hiself (you can so tell too!) But I aked what he used because he told me how long it takes him anbout 3 hours starting from a dry dog.no bath. so He tells me that he is using lister sheep clippers from wahl what I ask ? Why? he says he bought andis 2 speed ag something and they wouldnt go throught the hair- I cant believe it.I insist that he must be clesan and dry properly And he shouldnt have a problem and then he tells me there is no gaurd comb he can buy so he is using a comb to keep the lenghth like a barber. I try to explain he really needs to be clean first and he needs to dry him while brushing him ,this dog had NO MATTS at all.

    So now he is trying to have me come to his house and groom him.I soo dont want to do it.Ive never groomed a dog that big and plus im not that good yet. He said he doesnt care about how good he looks just wants to get rid of some of the hair.oh and get this he showed me his clippers and everything he bought to groom this dog and he has a 40 blade for the andis clippers..I asked him not to try to use that on this dog its too short.
    so I already told him no. So I guess it doesnt really mater but I was curious If anyone else would have groomed this dog at his house not having experiance.

    As a newbie and at his house, probably not, but I do a Russian and she is not that impossible. She has coarser hair so it clips up pretty nice, but that is after a bath and blow out of course. This is a kennel clip with a 3/4 guard, head 1.25 guard, pretty good girl all in all.

      I've groomed a Blk Russian (not in breed pattern) and one of my former coworkers grooms a show one regularly. The one I did was a shave down due to SEVERE matting. It probably took about 4 hrs(but that is not done straight through..some kennel drying). I got normal clippers through(I own a andis AGP 2 speed and a Laube Lighting), their hair is similar in texture to bouvier de flanders. The show Blk Russian takes my friend about 3 hrs done straight through due to drying, scissoring and blending. If you have the new pocket version of Notes from the Grooming Table, they added Black Russian terrier. I would not recommend grooming this breed at home without the proper grooming equipment. You'd want a hydrolic or electric table, a strong force dryer and a good way to bathe (I would think at home you'd have to use a walkin shower or the backyard hose).

            BRT

            Yes. In fact, "Kona" was here at my salon today! She is huge and sweet. Owners are pilots and keep her outside mostly..... I know, I know. No matter how what I say to them, she only comes in 3-6 months between grooms! She showed up today as no surprise here, a pelt. I had them sign a release today. I'm seriously considering reporting them. They have the money. NO way no how would I groom her anywhere other than a grooming salon. Somebody else might, not me. When she first started coming, I asked for help too & the responses & research was to do very little. AKC says something like up to 6" in length. Kona's owner has me cut off her fall & shave off bottom jaw hair because "she gets wet & smelly". I know, I know.

              I would jump at the chance to groom one(but then again I am glutton for punishment lol.) if you follow the links for grooming instructions remember they can always be modified to the owners preference if he still wants it to look like the breed but a shorter version.

                  I'm stoked for you! They are beautiful dogs, I saw one at a dog show last fall. I need to go back and see who she was and who was handling her but the handler was very nice. He kept talking to the spectators while waiting to be judged. I've always liked Giant Schnauzers but BRTs have peaked my interest too. I believe Rottweilers were used in their creation and I love Rotties.

                    I groom a BRT Rufus the goofus ,he is sooo cool! He gets groomed much like Ruggins BRT except a shorter face, cause he flings water all over his house. He comes in very 5 weeks he gets into the tub hisself, then walks over to grooming table hops on and is a very good boy.

                      I would not groom BRT in its house no matter how sweet they might be. It is a serious guard dog who most likely would not like you because you are an intruder and more so because yo going to be messing with hair in presence of an owner who needs to be protected. However I would welcome one in the shop.
