Member Video: Grooming a Black Russian Terrier - 44 minutes
The Black Russian Terrier is a relatively new breed to the American Kennel Club. The breed originated following WWII. It was created to provide working dogs for the armed services in the Soviet Union. This is a large, robust dog. It is extremely muscular and strong. In this session, seasoned stylist, Suesan Watson demonstrates the basic grooming pattern used to accentuate the physique of these dogs. The breed sports a standard Terrier type pattern, yet has a number of unique attributes that we don’t typically see with other dogs. This dog was shaved down a few months prior to this grooming. Still, there is enough coat to show you how to set in the ‘tuxedo,’ create the ‘top hat,’ carve out the rear angulation and set the lines on the large blocky head.
