As breeders of “family companion dogs” our Ridgies and puppies provide: companionship, affection, tenderness, comfort, friendship, enjoyment, relaxation, loyalty and so much more as they also aide in emotional support for families, individuals, children and the elderly.

Our puppies are microchipped, regularly wormed, tick/flea treated, groomed, receive regular health checks, vaccinated and can be fully vaccinated to be protected from parvo virus. They are well socialised, understand routine, toileting, simple commands and have the opportunity to spend more time with their parents who pass on their unique traits to their puppies. Our Ridgebacks live amongst family and well maintained, stress free, clean surroundings. They are provided with a nutritious, well balanced natural healthy diet which helps them to develop strength, resilience, strong bones and a healthy digestive system. They will leave us with a “Health Certificate”, Vet examination history as well as an “Information/Guide Booklet” in which several important topics are covered to assist you such as : care, diet, behaviour, routine etc. We regularly liaise with our Vet Team using and supporting “Integrative Vet Medicine” which is a combination of mainstream Vet Services with All Natural Vet Care.

Lucky absolutely loves being outdoors playing with a special friend after she's become his or her companion but she is not the type of dog to be taken on casual walks around the block. Although she has had some intensive lead training and is reasonably obedient, will sit, stay, come on command and leads well on a halti, she has never learned how to introduce herself to a strange dog. She is far too friendly and rambunctious and most strange dogs will arc up at her unruly behaviour. Given a few car4eful introductions though, she shows herself to be truly sociable, friendly and playful. She is very loyal and eager to please her human leader and would really suit an active tradie who will take her everywhere with him and protect her from herself around other dogs until she learns to fit in. She lives very comfortably with four dogs at her carers' home ranging from a tiny silky terrier to a gentle giant Greyhound and honestly prefers to stay inside her own yard with her mates. She's very reluctant to go out into the strange world and would happily much rather stay enclosed in a yard or even a kennel with a run all day. She's a good watch dog, but doesn't bark unnecessarily. She's a lovely girl but not suitable around cats or chickens. We would also recommend that she go to a home without very small children. She does love older children adn would love to have at least one other dog to play with. Lucky is going to be someone's very loyal, very loving friend. Age: DOB 25.07.2021 Breed: Mixed Medium (possibly Ridgeback Cross) Kid friendly: OK with older children Dog friendly: Yes once familiar Cat friendly: No Bird friendly: No House/Litter trained: Yes Estimated size as an adult: Medium Location: Millaa Millaa Microchip #953010100453435 Lucky has been desexed, microchipped, flea and worm treated, vaccinated and heartworm tested negative.

The Ultimate Rhodesian Ridgeback Guide

About Rhodesian Ridgeback

The Rhodesian Ridgeback, once known as the African Lion Hound, is a versatile hunting dog that has made a name for itself as an excellent companion for active owners.

Grooming

Grooming

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are not difficult to groom, and most Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies and adults will need brushing around once a week.

Origins

Rhodesian Ridgebacks were developed by farmers in Southern Africa. They were intended to withstand the harsh climate and terrain.

The Ridgeback is the product of crossing multiple other breeds, such as the Great Dane and Bloodhound, with the local dogs. They noticed that dogs with the Ridgeback’s distinctive ridge of hair turned out to be excellent hunters.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback was used to flush game out of the bush, and also to hunt lions, holding them down until the hunters could arrive.

Cornelius von Rooyen can be credited with starting the first breeding program for the Ridgeback, in the country that was once known as Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Despite being a relatively new breed, the Ridgeback is very popular in South Africa.

Key Characteristics Of Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Are Rhodesian Ridgebacks Family-Friendly?

Yes, Rhodesian Ridgebacks can be good family pets if they are trained and socialised at a young age.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Rhodesian Ridgebacks may suffer from:

Dermoid Sinus

A rare congenital skin condition that can extend from the skin down to the spinal cord, potentially leading to infection or neurological issues.

Nature / Temperament

Quiet, Gentle, Dignified, Obedient, Brave

Suitable Environment

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are large dogs who enjoy having a lot of space to stretch out. They may not be suited to apartment living.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback was made to be a hunting and working dog, and thrives on activities. This breed requires a secure, fenced outdoor area to run off-leash.

Other Considerations

• One of the most defining characteristics of a Rhodesian Ridgeback is its distinctive “ridge” of hair along its back that grows in the opposite direction to the rest of the coat.

• Rhodesian Ridgebacks were originally bred in Africa for hunting and guarding.

• Their heritage as lion hunters gives them a fearless and independent nature.

How can I take good care of my Rhodesian Ridgeback?

Nutrition

Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies should always get high-quality dog food. Their large adult size means they need enough nutrients to grow properly. Clean water should be made available at all times.

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are not prone to weight gain, but they should still not eat too much for each meal. It’s a good idea to weigh out their food. You may consult with your vet about your dog’s diet and nutrition, if necessary.

Grooming

Rhodesian Ridgebacks have a short, shiny coat that does not need much maintenance.

Exercise

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are energetic dogs, and need around 40 minutes to an hour of exercise a day. Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies may exercise outdoors as well, so long as they receive authorisation from a veterinarian.

Take care not to over-exercise your Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, as their joints may not be fully developed.

Training

Most Rhodesian Ridgebacks need significant training to develop proper doggy behaviour. They are very smart, and are often eager to please their owners.

Obedience training is one of the main priorities for a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. Basic training can start very soon after a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy is brought home from a breeder.

You may choose to enrol your Rhodesian Ridgeback in training classes if you plan to enter them into competitions. If you do, ensure that the training methods are based on positive reinforcement.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Rhodesian Ridgeback Questions

No, Rhodesian Ridgebacks will always choose to be close to their owners and may develop destructive behaviours if left to sleep by themselves outdoors.

Yes. Rhodesian Ridgebacks can live with other dogs or cats so long as they are introduced to each other at a young age.

However, it is best to not have too many male dogs in the same household, as it may lead to dominance struggles.

If you are looking for a Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale, it is best if you adopt from ethical, responsible Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders. Supporting good breeders also supports the health and well-being of the breed.

The average cost of Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies for sale will be between AUD $1500 and $3000.
