Hi,
I am new to this board and would like to gather some information if it is available or even recommendations. I would really love to read about others opinions and information on Black Russian terriers, giant schnauzers, bouvier des Flandres. Compatability with children and another dog(we have a GSD). We will be getting a trainer as well as finding a groomer. Thank you!!

From what I've heard of them, BRT probably aren't what you are looking for. They can be very sharp with both people and other dogs. Giants or Bouvier might be a better match, depending on the lines.

Of course, you also need to take the age of the kids into consideration Large breed puppies and small children usually aren't a good combination regardless of the dog's temperament or breed.

I personally don't own any of the above breeds but my recommendation would be to reach out to breeders or attend some dog shows, meet some breeds and have a chat to breeders. :)

I used to have a Bouiver X st bernard and he was the best dog.
Didnt bark much at all, was raised with cats a hamster and three children and was a gentle giant.
Of course he did shed and I know Bouviers are supposed to be hypoallergenic so maybe that was his St Bernard half... But Max smelled like a wookie on a bad day...We never got the smell out not by washing or diet change he just had a very doggy smell.
He guarded our house but in a calm and peaceful way he was good with everyone children and adults alike also good with livestock which was imporatnt because we lived in the country but horses cows and sheep were fine with him.

He loved the cold the wind and the snow but wasnt keen on heat and we had him shaved down every summer to help.
If I was younger yes I would have another bouvier. They are brilliant dogs..

The one fault if any ,,, I know they are very prone to cancers. I thought because Max was a cross he might escape that fate but he was just 8 when he developed lymphmomia and died a couple of weeks short of his 9th brithday
