About the breed Rhodesian Ridgeback


Thanks to his natural athlete's data, Ridgeback can be an excellent companion to a sportsman and conquer in agility rings, with an enthusiasm to catch plates and win in frisbee competitions, successfully perform in freestyle.

Rhodesian ridgeback can concentrate in search and rescue work, being lifeguard on the water, becoming excellent partner to the owner in riding sports, in almost all 9 varieties.

A dog with wonderful natural data is powerful and beautiful, always attracts public attention, and if well-mannered - impresses people and gives real pleasure to the owner.

The nature of Rhodesian Ridgeback is not simple - it's not a shepherd, he is natural hunter and therefore it will take a lot of time and Your energy to raise a good dog. And if you put all Your love and soul in Rhodesian Ridgeback, if You offer him Your whole attention from the very beginning, you will be rewarded with a diamond in your hands.

At least a general training course is required for Rhodesian Ridgeback. If training classes carry away You and Your pet so much that you want to go to the sport further, it will also be a wonderful leisure and joy for You both for many years.

Rhodesian Ridgeback will not automatically protect You and Your property, won’t become a nanny for your children, as well as it’s impossible for him to hunt without any training, no matter they write about it in advertisements about the breed. It’s just a myth!

This dog carries such abilities in her pedigree and our goal is to develop them if necessary. Dog’s talents and abilities should not be developed by Yourself, but under the guidance of good specialists. And only good ones.

You should always remember that the Rhodesian Ridgeback is a dog with a very high IQ and is prone to make independent decisions. This is his main difference from the easily and quickly trained dogs of group 1 (shepherds).

But if You would persistently, but affectionately lead Your puppy on the way from a naughty baby to a decent well-mannered dog, he will offer You his brave big heart and soul. And then there will be harmony and happiness.

The breed and its detailed characteristics can be read in the standard below. Here I just wanted to introduce You Rhodesian Ridgeback as I see him and how I would like to see the breed in the future, a beautiful, harmonious dog, well-bred, ready to work with the owner in the area that the master and the dog will feel both comfortable according to abilities and interests.


10.12.1996/EN   FCI-Standard N° 146 

ORIGIN:  Southern Africa. Standard supplied by the Kennel Union of Southern Africa and the Zimbabwe Kennel Club.  




UTILIZATION: The Rhodesian Ridgeback is still used to hunt game in many parts of the world, but is especially prized as watch-dog and family pet.  


FCI-CLASSIFICATION:  Group  6 Scenthounds and related breeds.   Section 3 Related breeds.   Without working trial.  


BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY: The Rhodesian Ridgeback is presently the only registered breed indigenous to southern Africa.  Its forbears can be traced to the Cape Colony of Southern Africa, where they crossed with the early pioneer’s dogs and the semi-domesticated, ridged Hottentot hunting dogs.  Hunting mainly in groups of two or three, the original function of the Rhodesian Ridgeback or Lion dog was to track game, especially lion, and, with great agility, keep it at bay until the arrival of the hunter. The original standard, which was drafted by F.R.Barnes, in Bulawayo, Rhodesia, in 1922, was based on that of the Dalmatian and was approved by the South African Kennel Union in 1926.  


GENERAL APPEARANCE: The Rhodesian Ridgeback should represent a well balanced, strong, muscular, agile and active dog, symmetrical in outline, and capable of great endurance with a fair amount of speed.  The emphasis is on agility, elegance and soundness with no tendency towards massiveness.  The peculiarity of the breed is the ridge on the back, which is formed by the hair growing in the opposite direction to the rest of the coat.  The ridge is the escutcheon of the breed.   


The ridge must be clearly defined, symmetrical and tapering towards the haunch.  It must start immediately behind the shoulders and continue to the hip (haunches) bones.  The ridge must contain only two crowns, identical and opposite each other.  The lower edges of the crowns must not extend further down the ridge than one-third of its length.  A good average width of the ridge is 5cm (2”).  


BEHAVIOUR / TEMPERAMENT: Dignified, intelligent, aloof with strangers, but showing no aggression or shyness.  



Skull: Should be of a hair length (width of head between ears, distance from occiput to stop, stop to end of nose, should be equal), flat and broad between the ears; the head should be free from wrinkles when in repose.

Stop: The stop should be reasonably well defined and not in one straight line from the nose to the occipital bone.  



Nose: The nose should be black or brown.  A black nose should be accompanied by dark eyes, a brown nose by amber eyes. Muzzle : The muzzle should be long, deep and powerful.


Lips: The lips should be clean, closely fitting the jaws.


Jaws/Teeth : Jaws strong, with a perfect and complete scissor bite, i.e. the upper teeth closely overlapping the lower teeth and set square to the jaws.  The teeth must be well developed, especially the canines or holders.


Cheeks: Cheeks should be clean.


Eyes : Should be moderately well apart, round, bright and sparkling, with intelligent expression, their colour harmonising with the colour of the coat.

Ears :  Should be set rather high, of medium size, rather wide at base, and gradually tapering to a rounded point.  They should be carried close to the head. 

NECK: Should be fairly long, strong and free from throatiness.  




Back : Powerful.


Loins: Strong, muscular and slightly arched.


Chest : Should not be too wide, but very deep and capacious; the brisket should reach to the elbow.   Forechest should be visible when viewed from the side.  Ribs moderately well sprung, never rounded like barrel-hoops.  




Should be strong at the root and gradually tapering towards the end, free form coarseness.  It should be of moderate length.  It should not be attached too high nor too low, and should be carried with a slight curve upwards, never curled.  





General appearance : The forelegs should be perfectly straight, strong and well boned, with the elbows close to the body. When viewed from the side, the forelegs should be wider than viewed from the front.

Shoulders : The shoulders should be sloping, clean and muscular.

Pastern : Should be strong with light spring.  



General appearance:

In the hind legs the muscles should be clean and well defined.


Stifle : Good turn of stifle.


Hock : Strong, well let down.  


FEET: The feet should be compact and round, with well arched toes and tough, elastic pads, protected by hair between the toes and pads.  



GAIT / MOVEMENT:  Straight forward, free and active. 


HAIR: Should be short and dense, sleek and glossy in appearance, but neither woolly nor silky.  


COLOUR: Light wheaten to red wheaten.  A little white on the chest and toes is permissible, but excessive white hairs here, on belly, or above toes is undesirable.  A dark muzzle and ears permissible.  Excessive black hairs throughout the coat are highly undesirable.  



Height at withers :  Dogs :  63-69 cm (25” -27”).  

                                Bitches : 61-66 cm (24” -26”).


Weight :                  Dogs : 36,5 kg (80 lbs).  

                                Bitches : 32   kg  (70 lbs).  


FAULTS: Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.



  • Aggressive or overly shy dogs.

  • Any dog clearly showing physical of behavioural abnormalities   shall be disqualified.  



  • Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.

  • Only functionally and clinically healthy dogs, with breed typical conformation should be used for breeding.
