  • Never done a Black Russian Terrier

    ...And I have one scheduled for Wednesday. Yikes. I have never even seen one in real life. Anyone have any tips/ advice/ suggestions for me? Or resources I could look at? I am uber excited but a little nervous. The guy seemed like he will be very picky, and we are a new salon and I want to impress!

          O O O O Man! Good luck to you! I've groomed one. They are VERY cool to groom....IF they are well trained! I eventually had to "fire" mine because it just wasn't worth the hassle. The owner did not understand the power of this breed and how to maintain control and I didn't have time or inclination to be her "trainer/groomer" every couple months. If the owner doesn't have good command of the dog then you will have a very powerful, pushy, beast to contend with. I hope yours works out for you because they ARE very cool to groom!

            Wow! I used to work under the handler that did the #1 BRT. They are groomed SIMILARLY (not completely) like a Bouvier. Big full heads. Their chest set is different among a couple other things. One thing that not a lot of people do is the butt/pants area is VERY tight. My boss would shave his ass like a baboon. LOL.
