We are not a kennel, we lovers of the breed and our dogs live in our home with us. We do not breed regularly and if we do it is because we are wanting to add another Ridgeback to our lives. We strive to breed to the breed standard, with an emphasis on temperament as we know the pups we don't keep for ourselves will be family pets.
Breeding a litter is a huge responsibility. Each breeding must be carefully planned for health, temperament and structure to produce puppies that are not only physically sound and athletic, but who will also make wonderful friends and companions.
We consider our puppies part of our family for their lifetime and they are treated with masses of love, care and attention, until they move into their new homes. We provide lifetime breeder support and enjoy keeping in touch with our puppy families! It's one of our joys to go on play dates with puppies and dogs that have come from us!
As members of Dogs Queensland (CCCQ) and The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Queensland (RRCQ), and licensed breeders with our local shire council, we take very seriously the ethics, behaviour and conduct required for responsible dog ownership and breeding. Both parents are hip and elbow scored below breed average.
Puppies are raised in our home, at the heart of the family, in clean and comfortable conditions. We begin to socialse puppies early, with an emphasis on becoming well rounded, balanced dogs who will make excellent family pets. Puppies can go to their new homes when they're at least 8 weeks old.
The wellbeing of our precious puppies is our primary concern, so we will ask lots of questions of families enquiring, and we expect those families will have plenty of questions for us also. If we don't have any puppies available, we are happy to refer you to another reputable breeder.
Puppies will be:
Puppies also come with a puppy pack containing information about puppy's feeding routine, breed information, etc. We offer full breeder support for the lifetime of each puppy.
We would never cull ridgeless puppies, and we do not know any Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders who do so.
