who we are

Rhodesian Ridgebacks have been part of our life for quite some time.  After we got married in 1999 we wanted to get a dog to join our family.  Howie insisted the only breed for him was a Rhodesian Ridgeback.  So I searched for a breeder in our area and that is when we aquired Kekoa.  Kekoa taught us so much about the breed and all of their amazing qualities. 

When we were ready to get serious about competing in the conformation ring we found breeders Danielle Sand of Ivy League Ridgebacks and Susan Ralston of Ridgeview Ranch Ridgebacks.  We are so grateful for the Rhodesian Ridgebacks they have entrusted to us over the years.  We appreciate the knowledge and guidance we have gained from them.

We now live with two Ridgebacks (but there is always visitors) Sugar and Vincente in Kaysville, Utah.  Sugar is picutred to the left with our son Matthew.  We co-own Sugar with our dear friend Linda Siplon.  Linda is a huge part of our program and makes the dog shows much more enjoyable! 

Our son Matthew was born in 2005 and our dogs are wonderful with him.  Sugar can do no wrong in Matthew's eyes.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the wonderful world of Rhodesian Ridgebacks.  We have been involved with Rhodesian Ridgebacks long enough, that we have the resources to produce the some of the finest Ridgeback litters in the country.  Of course, we do it with only the finest integrity and care for the breed as well as the love of each individual puppy.
