Above and Be-hound! Ridgebacks in Action!
Rhodesian Ridgebacks are well-known by those who love them to be a versatile breed. They are smart, honest workers when trained positively and are excited about learning. We have enjoyed exposing our pack to most performance events as well as tracking, swimming and therapy work. Besides showing in conformation, for more than a decade we have competed in lure coursing, agility, obedience and rally. Preparation for any of these events creates a great opportunity to deepen your bond with your RR, while keeping them physically fit and mentally sharp. Lure coursing is a favorite with our pack who love to chase the “bunny”! Doug has been an AKC and ASFA lure coursing judge since 2009. Julie serves on the RRCUS Performance Committee and is also an AKC lure coursing judge.
Below are our RRs (past and present) registered names and performance titles with pictures in their favorite events. We included a few videos too!
