My involvement in Ridgebacks began
back in 2000, with my first Ridgeback named Radek. He won my heart and thus began a whole new path.
Danielle is a current Director for the Prairies with the RRCC. My dogs are not only My companion, but members of my family.
I spend a great deal of my time with my dogs, showing in conformation, obedience, lure coursing and agility. I believe the Ridgeback to be a very versatile dog.
I breed occasionally and when I do my goal is to produce puppies sound in temperament, in health and who conform to the breed standard. I only breed dogs who have had their hips and elbows OFA’d certified and their heart and thyroid are clear. We make every attempt to socialize each puppy to as many different things as possible while they are here with me. I have found that providing Early Neurological Stimulation, as per well-known Judge, Researcher and Writer, Dr. Carman Battaglia's protocol, has provided my puppy's a wonderful foundation to start their lives. This neurological stimulation "Super Dog's Program", has been found to provide these dogs with a greater resistance to disease and a stronger tolerance to stress. It also improves trainability, performance, health and potential. Please visit the following website for more information

We are selective of our puppy owners. Although I love the breed, Rhodesian Ridgebacks are not for everyone. I do encourage puppy owners to stay in contact and are always available for support.
My puppies are guaranteed and sold with a non-breeding contract registered with the Canadian Kennel Club. Pets are to be spayed or neutered. In the event a dog is shown in conformation, the non-breeding contract may be lifted upon meeting certain requirements.
I am a member of the Canadian Kennel Club, Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Canada, Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Eastern Canada, Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States and the Manitoba Gazehound Association.
