Below we see some really nice pictures of puppies
a various stages of development that we have bred

I am a firm believer in natural rearing, the practical common sense way to feed dogs for a long healthy life is best
expressed in the book we fetched back from our trip to Australia in 1998, when we visited to judge achampionship show.

The book 'Give your dog a bone' by Dr Ian Billinghurst. In particular the section on Dry dog food:
Because dry dog foods are low in energy, poorly digested and high in insoluble fibre they result in moist offensive voluminous stools,
those wet offensive stools result in concentrated urine which burns the lawn. Also the high level of cerial products couses alkaline
urine high in certain minarals. this combination helps produce bladder stones and blader infections the stones make it difficult for
your dog to pee. They may reach such a size in the bladder causing pain and a need for surgery. The Vet may advise you to give
your dog a special dry diet for the rest of his life.

The major disadvantage of dry dog food is that they are dificient in normal fatty acids, commonly found in plant oil,
chicken and
animal fat

Dry food often causes skin problems due to the lack of zinc and most dry dog foods have excessive calcium.

We feed a raw diet of fresh meat and all fresh food including vegtables. We also use bones, food scraps and other food items
cheaply available from our local super market and over many years we have had minimum health worries.
It comes as no surprise there fore that our bitches and our stud dogs are extremely fertile and healthy.

Here we see two photos of our lovely Ludvig
enjoying some natural feeding in the shape of a large bone




The question most often asked:

Is it safe to own a Russian Black Terrier with small children at home?
Here are my grandsons Reuben and Sam, they regularly visit our dogs at home

Here they are with our latest litter of puppies from P.A.T dog Natasha

Appealing puppies at 10 weeks

Here is Gary (Potterspride Garovnik)
at 10 weeks old, born June 2004

Gary is the first Russian to keep his tail. So he is special

Interaction between breeder and bitch with pups is so important,
the bond between the pack is established in these early days.

All of our puppys are bred in the warmth of our kitchen, and not bred in kennels

These appealing puppies are just one week old, bred in the warmth of our kitchen under my watchful eye
regularly handled to produce excellent temperament. When the pups are old enough they have the freedom
of the garden, they become confident and house clean, when visitors come they handle the parents and
the puppies and after selecting their puppy are given a complete back up service including; books, leaflets,
diet sheets, starter pack of food, and a lifetime back up service. We are not a commercial kennel but we
specialize in this intelligent working breed
