The rhodesian ridgeback Breed
Rhodesians only want one thing: spending all their time with us.
However, in any household there are rules which must be respected… striking the right balance between toughness and sweetness you can demand from them what is needed for a harmonious and serene life.
The general personality traits of the breed are:“Dignified, intelligent, detached with strangers, but not aggressive and shy”
(Standard FCI, 10/12/1996)
Our way of being also breeders is driven by deeply-rooted core ethical values which include the utmost respect for the well-being of our dogs and their future families.
On our dogs we perform all the necessary check-ups for dysplasia in the official screening centers and we carry out the main genetic tests recommended for the breed, including Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) and Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME)
The females of our kennel give birth to their first litter only after 3 estrous cycles and not before.
In order to then ensure the full recovery of the mother, the following litters are carried out, skipping at least one estrous cycle between one fertilization and the next.
We plan few litters to be able to devote ourselves completely to our little ones who are stimulated from the first days of life to make sure they are healthy, safe and well-balanced when they eventually join their new families, after at least 60 days.
The Ridgeback Della Sierra kennel in Caronno Varesino in Varese district is officially recognized by the Italian National Cynophile Organization (ENCI) and by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).
