AKC Breeder of Merit
We fell in love with the Black Russian Terrier, about 16 years ago. With help from friends, we were able to import our first BRT from Russia, Chigasovo Kennels. That dog is "Thatch", GChB Ya Black Beard Iz Chigasovo, TT CGC. Thatch remains the center of our hearts and home.
We live an active Southern California lifestyle, and our dogs are included in the many activities we enjoy. They are at home at the beach and in the snow; they enjoy hiking and swimming. They are smart, friendly, and guard appropriately. Our Black Russian Terriers do not live in kennels, but rather they live in our home as family dogs. We participate in many dog sports including conformation.
We do our best to select breeding pairs who exemplify type, temperament, and good health. Our goal is to produce dogs who can help secure the future of healthy Black Russian Terriers while preserving genetic diversity.
