Breeding philosophy

Our ultimate breeding goal is to maintain and promote the physical and mental health of the Rhodesian Ridgeback in its racial purity, longevity, charakter, toughness and shapely appearance. We breed under the association DZRR (Deutsche Züchtergemeinschaft Rhodesian Ridgeback e.V.) of the VDH / F.C.I. and have committed ourselves to adhere to the given standards.

Responsible breeding is only possible due the strict requirements of the DZRR/ VDH/ FCI for breeders, breeds and kennels. This starts with the selection of the parent animals, which is why we only breed with healthy dogs for generations. Especially important for us is the character of the stud dog, which should bring along nerve strength, friendliness and a balanced temperament. The race-typical characteristics of running and sweat dogs such as alertness, hunting instinct and protective instinct carry our dogs even today in their genetics. In addition, the slow maturation process of the Rhodesian Ridgeback requires a lot of patience from its owner. Therefore, one should be clear of whether one can deal with this predisposition and so in the long run to enable a happy life for humans and dogs.

Our puppies grow up like family members with human nearness and they are cared for the whole day and night. From the beginning they are affected everyday by stimuli and the environment at home. They grow up in a safe and animal friendly Surroundings, which is perfect for rearing and a happy dog’s life. When the puppies old enough, they explore the garden with all the different play equipment, soil types, sounds and changing social contacts with other dogs, people and children. Everything what the puppies need in their embossing phase, we want to give them and make them to friendly and happy companions. At the end of the eighth week of puppies life, they will be examined by an experienced breed specialist of the DZRR and provide with an report for the future puppy parents. The puppies are several times vaccinated, dewormed, chipped and have an EU pet passport.
