As a breeder, I am of course also a breed enthusiast and as such, I wish not only to maintain true Ridgeback type, soundness and temperament but to strive for breed improvement in my breeding program.

I spend a lot of time and effort researching our breed with the purpose of our future breeding program and as a consequence of this, I place certain demands on my potential puppy buyers, who by puchasing a dog from our Kennel, receive a special gift, comaprable to a “child” and thus a part of us.

IInterested parties should offer a loving, secure, active home with sufficient space and time to devote to a Ridgeback. Breed information is available under breed profile.

I am always available to assist you via email or use the Contact link in the menu.

The pups are raised in our loving home, as one of the family with ample activities to entertain, educate and allow the pups to develop naturally. When older they will be introduced to the garden where they will familiarise themselves with every day life functions.

Upon departure to their new homes at approximately 9 weeks of age, each puppy will have received all necessary vaccinations and worming treatments. The pup will be accompanied with VDH/FCI pedigree, our puppy pack which includes a small booklet detailing essential breed, feeding and welfare guides, a harness and sufficient food for the first few days. And most importantly, our puppy will have our life-long Breeders support :o)
