    Bought my first Ridgeback in 1981 while living in South Africa - SHANDY was a wonderful companion. Born in 1991, WHISKY was my African Gentleman & an excellent foundation dog; then I was blessed with a perfect mate in RYE from the JANAK kennel. From our first litter in 1994, BEAUJOLAIS was a great show dog, sire of champions and my soul mate. We have enjoyed much success in the showring; essentially, our dogs are happy pack members who have taught us the importance of leadership & understanding. Thomas started showing Rye @ CRUFTS when he was only 4, but he needed a smaller dog of his own; .... (click to read more)

    My love of the breed started more than 15 years ago having met my first Ridgeback on holiday in Cornwall. I finally acquired my first ridgeback (Rubi) in 2003 and what an addition she was! Since then, I have been totally hooked on the breed. I have been a member of the Southern Rhodesian Ridgeback Association and The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great Britain for approximately 10 years.

    My girls live in the house with me and are my most most treasured companions. They have both been shown at Championship level, with great success. Both have gained their Kennel Club Stud Book Number. I .... (click to read more)

    We first encountered Ridgebacks in 1989 during a trip to South Africa but, for all sorts of reasons waited 20 years before 'switching' to this wonderful breed. My wife and I are both professionals with busy working lives so needless to say we adore the companionship, loyalty and endless hours of fun that we get from our pair who have recently produced a beautiful litter. The dam is absolutely adorable - demure yet fiercely protective. The big guy on the other hand is so laid back that he can sleep standing up - until, that is, he sees a rabbit and then all hell breaks loose! Wish we hadn't .... (click to read more)

    I have been interested in ridgebacks as long as I can remember and before purchasing my first ridgeback back in 1997 I read every book possible.Since having Kia my first ridgeback I have successfully bred two litters from her. The first litter of 12 back in July 2005 and my second litter of 13 in February 2007.

    Although most of the pups bred are showable my main concern as a ridgeback owner is to ensure all the pups born were well socialised with children, adults and other dogs.

However, they are still my gorgeous pet dogs and have been brought up in a normal family household and are a .... (click to read more)
