Owners and Breeders of Rhodesian Ridgebacks




We pay careful attention to the genetics of mating and strive to produce dogs of sound conformation, structure and good health. More importantly, we breed socialized pups raised in a home environment for stable temperaments and intelligence – our pups (independent of conformation quality for the show ring) are most often destined to become members of families.

We have always had dogs in our lives, first as children and later as a married couple. The breeds we owned were varied, including a Belgian Tervuran, an Akita, a Westie, a Papillon and various special mutts. While we loved each of these dogs, the Ridgeback was always a breed that intrigued us.
