All of our breedings are carefully planned well in advance.  It takes an incredible amount of time to research the lineage of potential studs, and to find that special one who not only offers the conformation qualities that we seek, but who also has the right temperament and health to offer.

All of our puppies are raised inside our home and we make sure they receive plenty of human interaction and socialization. Our puppies go to their new homes at the age of 8 weeks or later. Prior to leaving our home, each puppy is vet checked, microchipped (AVID), and routinely wormed. We follow Dr. Jean Dodd's vaccine protocol. We respect Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) regulations and therefore we do not remove front dewclaws. All of our puppies come with a health guarantee.

If you are interested in one of our puppies, please contact us at for more information about this litter and for our questionnaire. As you have already probably experienced, Ridgeback puppies from reputable breeders are typically spoken for prior to the litter being born, so we encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible to ensure you have an opportunity to be considered for a puppy.
