Grooming Black Russian Terrier

High Maintenance Coat of Black Russian Terrier

Black Russian Terrier has an extremely high maintenance coat. Depends on the type of coat you have it will take up to 8 hours a week to keep the dog in an outstanding coat condition. Washing, brushing, conditioning, oiling, etc

Another problem you can deal with is the dog's attitude as it must be used to the grooming from the day 1/ Step by step, minute by minute you need to practice with your future monster the grooming routine.

First and foremost buy grooming table 48" long as in a close future you will have a monster who will not fit the table less than 40". 

Second, discuss with your breeder the comb you need, the shampoo you will need, scissors, crimping tools, etc

Black Russian Terrier has long hair on ahead. You will need to keep ponytails up to open dogs' eys. Spiral type is the most popular one


Bathrobes for Black Russian Terriers are very helpful to save time to dry very rich coat, it takes 30-40 minutes to get rid of 80% of water



Comb - you will need a special raking comb to take undercoat out. My favorite one is ordered from St Petersburg (Russia) custom made



Dog Grooming Scissors

My Favorite - Geib Black Pearl Shears are made from high performance Japanese cobalt alloy metal with a Rockwell Hardness Rating of 60 


Rain Jackets

Rain Coat is helpful to avoid soaking wet dog after each rainy day walking
