Home of the First Performance Champion in Black Russian Terrier history!

Aeron earned her first rally championship at 8 years old and her grandaughter, Phoenix finished her Rally Championship just a few months later. These two are the only Rally Champions in the breed who are also Grand Champions in Conformation.

Home of 5 Generations of Grand Champions that Really Work!

The only kennel in the U.S. where every dog living here— past, present,
and our prospective breeding stocks —has at minimum:
Queens Over bred and owns the only Rally Champion in the history of the breed. We also have the only Black Russians with Rally Master titles (we have SIX) and the only Black Russians who have earned Performance Dog Excellent and the Versatility Dog Excellent (we have FIVE with both).
Queens Over has the only dogs that have received both VDX & PDX awards. FIVE of our breeding stock have attained that success.

The Black Russian Terrier is a calm, outgoing,
and courageous dog with self-assurance.

They are extremely reliable and very smart dogs. They were bred to guard and protect during the 1930’s, a military kennel named the Red Star, out of Moscow, started working on a native breed that would be part of the national security force. The Black Russian Terrier requires human attention and affection. These dogs cannot be left alone as an outside dog. They want to be close to family and are loyal companions. Obedience training and early continued socialization are required in order to keep the breed from becoming overly protective. Because of their intelligence, they excel in Rally, Obedience, protection work, drafting and tracking, and can be trained to do almost anything including dock diving, water rescue, weight pulling and search and rescue. Queens Over Black Russians are trained and handled by owner Edea Caldwell.  They are also shown in the conformation ring, owner-handled, with the super assistance of several wonderful professional handlers including Mel Holloman and David Rich. Our puppies were selected to be the featured litter on Animal Planet’s Dogs 101 – Black Russian Terrier segment.
