Breeding plans

puppiesWe don't have any litters planned for 2013 - 2015. Thank you for interest in our kennel, please check back at later stage. 

 If you decide a Rhodesian Ridgeback is the right dog for you, take time to speak with, and visit, several breeders. A quality breeder will provide you with a contract that will state your responsibilities as a buyer, as well as theirs. Make sure you are happy with the prospective parents as they are a good indicator of what your puppy will be like as an adult, both in terms of temperament, health, and looks.

When you visit the kennel, expect to see clean and well-kept facilities and take time to study the way the adult dogs, and especially the dam of the litter, behave around strangers – are they friendly and well socialized? Ask to see both parents’ health clearance certificates and choose a breeder who you feel comfortable with on a personal level. Any good breeder will expect you to keep in touch with them and keep them informed of your puppy’s progress and will be more than willing to help you with any questions or problems which you may encounter.

 We always welcome enquiries about our breeding plans. Since we are very careful and selective about where our puppies go, we like to hear from interested people in good time so we can achieve a careful match of puppy and owner personalities. We prefer to sell our puppies to people we have met in person and will not agree to ship a puppy to people we don’t know very well. If you are interested in a puppy from us in the future, please plan a visit to our kennel or arrange to meet us at an event. We would also like to visit the home the puppy will go to, if possible. 

We expect all our puppies to be hip and elbow x-rayed at a suitable age (around 2 years). Whether or not a dog will be used in breeding it is important for us to know the full results of our breeding program. We make a lifetime commitment to each of our puppies, and always welcome our dogs back at any time in their life. 

Meanwhile, you can make yourself familiar with our puppy questionare...

 

The following questions are being asked of you so that the right puppy and the right placement of each puppy is made by bringing the various requirements of both the puppy and his or new owner(s) into perspective, BEFORE a choice is made. I hope you will agree that the animal's welfare must be my foremost consideration in considering a placement. Please answer the following questions as completely as you can, and return this form when you've finished.
