The owner of our kennel and training Academy is Jean Brown, CKC Draft Judge, AKC Breeder of Merit, K-9 Trainer, CGN and TT evaluator.

Jean’s 1st encounter with BRTs occurred in the late 70s in Moscow.  She was so impressed with the raw power, magnificent presence and willingness to obey the owner’s wishes; she took a picture of her young brother with these 2 BRTS 

Many years later we started our search for a non –shedding breed that could possibly be trained as personal mobility assistance dog for Troy and be a great companion to for the whole family.

We got our 1st Blackie in 2003.  Rusah was the female pick of the litter for learning aptitude, working ability, temperament and structure. Our mentors, Bernie and Lana, professional dog trainers made 3 trips with us to see the litter Rusah came from; to make sure we would get the pup that matched our goals and expectations.  Did she ever!
Rusah was a wonderful ambassador for the breed, an intelligent, gorgeous female with stable temperament. She is one of the most titled versatile working BRT in North America, conformation champion of 6 clubs, Certified Mobility assistance dog and has proven herself as a great brood bitch, giving us four fabulous litters.

It would be an understatement to tell you that we are in love with this breed.  Our BRTs are very important part of the family and are first and foremost well-loved companions. They receive the love, attention, exercise and training that they require and deserve.  Blackies do best living with their human family, bonding with each member to become irreplaceable friends, companion and protectors.

We are Proud of our Canine family & their accomplishments:

* Exclusive Top working and show champions in North America.

* Carefully selected Best Canadian and Imported Bloodlines to fulfill our breeding objectives.

*Excellent breed appropriate temperament (Publicly and Professionally Tested)

* Top Canadian Black Russians in  Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Tracking, Scent work, IPO and Conformation.

*  Official OFA health clearances ( Hips, elbows, heart, eyes, patella)

*Over 250 working titles in our kennel

*Over 30 High in Trails earned by our BRTS

* Multiple Best in Show

* Generations of Performing BRTs in multiple disciplines and modalities

* Proud producer of several working service and therapy dogs

* Kennel operates on partnership


* All our BRTS live at home, not in a kennel setting

We do not believe that kennel living is suitable for this breed, that is why none of our BRTs are kenneled, but  live at home with us or our Breeding Partners and extended Midnight Solo Family members. We appreciate all our Extended family members and our breeding partners and grateful for their dedication, passion and vision for Midnight Solo BRTs and our future.

We stand by our puppies and support our puppy owners in every way we can. 

We are looking forward to meeting new puppy owners and see our family grow.

We are honored  to hold Designation  of the Top Versatile  Working BRT Champions  Kennel in North America  since 2005 .

We are very proud of each puppy we produce and appreciate the new owners and breeding partners for their dedication and love for their Russian Terriers.

Since 2003 other wonderful BRTs have come into our lives, our BRTS have been a blessing, taught us a lot, have been exteremely sucsessful and have produced great puppies. We are thrilled to watch Midnight Solo grow and thankful to allour breeding partners for an incredible job they do, for their support and love for the breed.
