RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK BREEDERS

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are loyal, intelligent, and somewhat aloof to strangers. This is not to be confused with aggression; a ridgeback of proper temperament will be more inclined to ignore, rather than challenge, a stranger. This breed requires positive, reward-based training, good socialization and consistency; he is often not the best choice for inexperienced dog owners. Ridgebacks are strong-willed, intelligent, and many seem to have a penchant for mischief, though loving. They are protective of their owners and families. If trained well, they can be excellent guard dogs. Like any dog, they can become aggressive when they are not socialized properly.

When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE; Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Rhodesian Ridgeback Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.

Warning!  It has come to the notice of the breed clubs that some unscrupulous breeders are passing off Rhodesian Ridgebacks that are not the correct colour as “rare”. Please be careful, the colours are wheaten to red wheaten and not such colours as black and tan (Doberman colouring) or brindle. Occasionally, due to a gene silver / grey coloured puppies are born. They should never be shown and should never be used in a breeding programme. They should be registered as a non standard colour and their purchase price should reflect this. The Kennel Club recommends that these puppies should have their registrationdocumentsendorsed.  The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great Britain.
