Mission Statement

The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Canada promotes healthy dogs for sport or show, but mostly as a life companion. We believe in ethical and selective breeding as a means of improving or maintaining dogs that conform to the breed standard. We reject the notion of breeding for the sole purpose of profit. We believe that Rhodesian Ridgebacks are pack oriented and should be integrated into our daily lives. We mentor and congratulate others appropriately. We spay and neuter pets. We hold education as a core value to our club.



13th Annual National Specialty!


The 2016 National Specialty will be held in Mississauga, Ontario September 11, 2016.  Breed judge will be Bonnie Linnell Clarke, from North Carolina, USA.  More information and Premiuum list will be available shortly
