History of the Ridgeback
"The Rhodesian Ridgeback was developed in Rhodesia by the Boer Farmers. He was bred to survive the rigors of harsh country and climate where the fittest survived. He had to be easy to care for and inexpensive to maintain. The Boer required a good hunting dog with stamina to travel long distances over varied terrain to locate game. Once the game was sighted, the dog had to have enough remaining endurance to, in the case of large dangerous game (lions and the like), corner it and be agile enough to escape injury while holding the quarry at bay."¹ After the hunt however, the Boer expected his dog to remain at his side as a loyal companion, on guard constantly protecting not only his family but his livestock and property as well.
At The Lion Hounds of Kushinda, we strive to produce this "fully-Functional Ridgeback" that is able to demonstrate the requirments of the Boer Farmer, by avidly competing in agility, conformation, lure coursing, obedience, and tracking; as well as serving mankind as registered Therapy Dogs.
