Black Russian Terrier Temperament

The Black Russian Terrier is a robust, balanced, and agile breed. They are stable and reliable, and they are inherently guard dogs with a strong instinct to protect. As a loyal, intelligent, and friendly breed, the Black Russian Terrier will be loving toward their family, but tend to be reserved around strangers. However, they are friendly and good for families as long as they are socialized early on.

Responsible Black Russian Terrier breeders encourage an air of self-assurance, stability, and courage. Black Russian Terriers are highly affectionate and require plenty of daily exercise, as well as human contact. Adult males won’t get along with other dominant dogs, but can live with other non-dominant dogs and pets.
