The Rhodesian Ridgeback, the hunting dog
of Africa, has emerged from relative obscurity to earn a reputation as an impressive show dog, and a loyal companion.(video) Originally bred to accompany big game hunters, the Ridgeback was also highly-prized as a guard dog, keeping out intruders from farms and plantations. Today, the Ridgeback, a strong and agile dog, retains its fiercely loyal character, and, with the right training, is a companion dog par excellence.
These amazing and regal creatures are courageous enough to face off the fearsome African lion, fast enough to bring down the swift gazelle at full gallop, strong enough to trek many miles across hostile terrain and gentle enough to be the perfect playmate to even the youngest children.
In addition to being a horse farm, Cavallo Creek Farm has a phenomenal breeding program of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Ridgbacks are an elite and exclusive breed; we intend to keep it that way. Our Ridgbacks are our family. We are very particular in our selection process of where the forever homes of our pups will be and who will be their family. We are in the business of making families complete, one puppy breath at a time.
Breeding Ridgebacks happened really by chance for us. You see, for those of you Ridgeback owners, you can't have just one Ridgie, you need 2! Or at least that is how it started for us. Due to an unfortunate bout of Parvo, I lost my male puppy, Duke. I was devastated! So what does a grieving mother do? Well, try to clone him of course. So that is what happened, see, I tried to clone my puppy and then could keep just one puppy. This is how the original pack started. The rest of the puppies were then sold, then the phone rang off the hook for other people wanting "our" line of dogs. We had successfully bred a large, gentle giant that made many families so very happy. Now of course, my addiction continues. Now I have to have one of every color, size, shape, etc. We have a lot of land and our kids love to explore it. The puppies have become sort a way to pacify my addiction. See, I get to enjoy putting the DNA together, then enjoying the little guys during their cutest stage, then guess what??? They go on to destroy someone elses shoes for the next year.
We are a "turn'key" operation, that means, when you include one of our guys into your family, you will not have to do anything but love them and maintain their health with your veterinarian. We do all the work for you. By the time you get your pup, it will already have been microchipped with your information logged and will have been personally registered with AKC. You will receive both documents directly from AKC. This way you are not filling up your home with files of documents with a "I need to get this done" sticky note. We do it for you.
If you are looking to get your first RR, be aware. They are extremely intelligent and have a great memory. You have only one shot to assert your dominance and be the alpha. After the initial initiation, you have the most loyal companion you can ever imagine. As long as you remember that little secret, they are the easiest dogs in the world to train, but remember, if you let them get away with anything, they will remember! Animal Planet says it well in their video.
We have 3 stud dogs available for breeding to qualified females and occasional puppies for sale. Our dogs, with the patriarch males lineage originating in 1922 from Zimbabwe, Africa, are bred for disposition, personality and agility. Although most will grow up to be too large for show standards, we cater to those that love big strong, regal companions for their families, homes, ranches and farms. We breed primarily for temperament and disposition. If a dog doesn't fit into our pack and either doesn't blend well with the pack or our family, we donate them to Ridgeback Rescue where they have the opportunity to find a better suited home. Our dogs MUST be tolerant of small children and respectful of people and each other in the pack. We are breeding trustworthy and protective family dogs. Females will generally be 100+ pounds and males up to 140 pounds. Our dogs are our "family". We do not have kennels, except during breeding and whelping season. Depending on the time of year, our 11 Ridgebacks run free in a pack between our various ranches, including our Texas properties, an 8 acre horse ranch and our 65 acre farm as well as on our California winery property, all contained by the highly recommended Pet Safe Containment System. Certainly you will be greeted at the gate if you should make a visit out to one of our farms.
All of our pups have had their dew claws removed, are AKC registered, vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, have a 2 year breeder health guarantee against congenital disorders, are guaranteed healthy with a veterinarian health certificate and tested for dermoid sinus and hip displasia prior to ever leaving our home. Our dogs are making families happy in homes all over the country and the world; from California to Florida, Canada to Washington DC,Puerto Rico and Cancun, Mexico. We ship to most US airports, please inquire for international shipment. Cavallo Creek Ridgebacks encourages responsible pet ownership. Please ask about our spay and neuter rebate program for qualifying pups and check with your local animal shelter for low cost vaccinations and spaying or neutering. We suggest getting a dog spayed or neutered when you give them their first rabies shot, which is usually between 4 and 6 months of age.
