Read what our puppy homes say about us


When looking for a breeder it is imperative that you are fully comfortable with how we make breeding decisions, feed, raise and socialize your future Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. Our puppies are socialized with many of our friends and their grandchildren. You can expect pictures of the puppies from our litter every week after their birth.  We take official stack pictures between 6 and 8 weeks.  All puppies receive health certificates from our vet prior to going to their new homes.


Hi Stacy
Just finished an 800 mile road trip – I took the long way. I can give Jack a three word Testimonial-  He is “Prefect”- Thank you for a fine Ridgeback.  Jack is on his way to meeting 100 strangers. We went to a BBQ in Sylvester and he met around 30 of my friends- a lot of socialization- most of them wanted to know Who and Where I got him. He was the highlight of the evening.

As you know I am not new to Ridgebacks- many years ago, my late wife placed 2nd  at the National Ridgeback Specialty in the 9 to 12 month class. After that she bred, showed, and competed in in agility, lure coursing and obedience with Ridgebacks for 15 years. She also became Show Chair for the Lawrenceville Kennel club and led Ridgeback Rescue for North Georgia.

I don’t have near her knowledge on Rhodesian Ridgebacks, but over the years, saw a lot of Litters and attended a lot of dog shows and events. I showed some myself, when I was not working. From this experience, I can tell you this is the best litter I have ever seen. I have never seen a large litter where all the puppies were Show Quality. I am very glad you picked my puppy for me- I would have been at Carol’s for days. As you know, I intend to show “Jack Frost”.  Any of these puppies could have been my Jack Frost and I would have been ecstatic.

Thanks again

PS   It was great meeting Sugar, Shane and Carol. Please give Carol my thanks for whelping this Litter- 10 puppies is a major handful.  Sugar and Shane are great looking Ridgebacks- of course, this is why I got my puppy from you. I already knew Ansel and Sugar had the characteristics I was looking for. It was sure nice to see it work out.​






Another Navy friend of mine recommended Aariel Ridgebacks, after I had asked him where they got their dog. I filled out the information survey and heard back from Stacey Ford within a few days They answered all of my questions, and I was convinced that I wanted a ridgeback. My experience with Aariel Ridgebacks  was nothing but positive. Stacey and her mother Carol sent regular pictures and updates of the puppies, and walked me through every step of the way. It was evident that the puppies were well cared for, and both of them are true professionals who really love what they do. I had my puppy (Gunnar) shipped to me, and they took care of everything. He is a beautiful boy, and I couldn't be happier with him. I would recommend Aariel Ridgebacks to anybody who is looking for amazing puppy.

We received our puppy from Aariel Ridgebacks.  This breeder is caring, and genuine, and we are in love with our new ridgeback.  Both Stacey and Carol are very responsive and we felt comfortable throughout the process that our pup was getting the utmost care.  Each week we received pictures as our pup grew.  We received frequent updates on our puppy, from pictures, to advice, to additional reading resources. I very much appreciated the documentation they provided on the do's and don'ts of feeding the puppy, on the toys, grooming, and health records.  It was clear to our family that Aariel Ridgebacks, specifically Stacey and Carol, genuinely cared for our pup and we are very appreciative for their partnership.” – The Jackson Family

Aariel Ridgebacks are a complete pleasure to work with, they truly love and care about their puppies.  They are there 24 hours a day for any and all questions and keep you very well informed with pictures of your puppy and informative websites.  I would highly recommend them to anyone.
