Whilst at the centennial ladies dog show in England (2004) I discovered the BRT's. Home I came and the research began. Our first dog Ivan the Terrible (russiandownunder)arrived from the UK. It was love at first sight. A year later we approached Jo Chorny & Gene Osborne and they kindly let us purchase a bitch. The result of that is my 1st litter born 2009.
For many years Ivan was the mascot for Animates pet store. They are a non threatening breed but know how to bark and alert the owner when something is amiss. They are bomb proof around other animals and have a confident manner.
Being non shedding they are the perfect house dog.
Over the years we have imported excellent lines and also have imported semen to keep those lines clean.
Our dogs are large, healthy and robust. We breed for temperament and health. Most dogs go family homes and while they make the perfect family pet some of mine are also used for, sledding, search & Rescue, companion dogs, agility and obedience. They also make great couch potatoes.
We welcome visits to view the dogs. Please make a time to come up the Pohangina Valley and spend time with the dogs.
We are happy to let prospective owners chat with people who already have our dogs.
The key to choosing the correct dog for you is, to ask ask ask questions of those who have a BRT and know the breed.
On a personal level I have bred large breed dogs for over 30 years. first the Giant Black Schnauzer, now the wonderful Blackies, aka Black Russian Terrr
