Our prices reflect our commitment to the breed. We spend countless hours planning a breeding. We start from a foundation of health, ensuring the dam has all of the required and recommended health clearances. We then ensure our dams are quality from a conformation perspective. This requires us to show our dams in AKC shows to ensure they are quality within the breed, the end result of this showing is a Champion title or Grand Champion title.
Once we commit to breeding the bitch our question moves to selecting the appropriate male. To do this we not only review the female's pedigree but also her positives and negatives. If she has one area we wish to improve, we will identify a male with that area as strong or outstanding.
Then comes the breeding itself. Very few of our breedings are 'natural'. In fact most of our breedings are with fresh chilled or frozen semen. This allows us to access the best of ridgeback males across the country. We are not limited to only those in our local area. The cost involved is significant. Collection fees, transport, surgical implantation, stud fees. And, of course we are not guaranteed a litter at the end of this process.
When it comes to raising puppies we put our heart and soul in the process. Our puppies are supplemented and socialized. We give them different experiences to ensure they are outgoing and confident. Come visit and be part of our socialization team!

I just wanted to say thanks again. Your ridgebacks are absolutely amazing and beautiful. These are some of the best puppies I have ever had!!! They are nearly house trained and so well behaved. It was lovely to see all the bloodlines and now we know where Astra got her little spots on her toes and chest. Thank you!
Message is from a recent client from Virginia who transported her girl and another boy from the same litter to a customer of ours in Virginia.
