I spend a lifetime studying photo pedigrees, researching bloodlines and learning the health issues in certain lines, talking and learning from those in my breed and those outside of it.
I raise each litter as if I gave birth to them and spend an equal amount of time finding them loving forever homes. I only put puppies on this earth that I think will be the "healthiest" (mentally and physically) and best examples of their breed.
I support each family who chooses one of my puppies and let them know they are now a part of our extended family. I am there if one needs to come back and will aggressively pursue the return of one of my dogs if its in the wrong place. I support my breed in education., I educate anyone who phones about a Ridgeback whether they purchase from me or not. I d pray over every puppy when they arrive. and upon their departure to their furever homes. I share my knowledge and socialize my dogs so that they will be the advertisement for my dedication.
I don’t keep track of the “time” I put in to my love of my dogs, it would not be true measure of how I feel. The price I charge for my puppies becomes an investment in the next generation.
I work hard at being an HONEST dog breeder and encourage others to be the same.
I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback breeder and I am proud of what I have accomplished with our breeding program.
