Since our beginnings in 1990, Ozrhode Kennels have endeavoured to breed “true to type” Rhodesian Ridgebacks who epitomize the Breed Standard, exemplifying both function and form. In keeping with the old adage, "from little acorns do oak trees grow" ..... today in testament to our breeding goals, we are honoured with 16 Best Exhibit in Show awards; 20 Runners Up Best in Show awards; 6 Most Successful Breeder in Show awards, along with 5 Grand Champions, 37 Australian Champions or International Champions. We are also honoured to have bred and owned the BREED record holder for Specialty wins in Australia for many years - Gr Ch. Ozrhode Ari Mystic Gypsy ET, who has just been surpassed by the handsome Duke.
Ozrhode Kennels diversified in 2003, with the introduction of a Whippet, followed shortly by a Saluki. These breeds have now multiplied, as they do :o) After much research, our foundational whippet litter was whelped in March 2007.

When choosing a Ridgeback as a companion, we believe temperament and soundness are most important. Our breeding program, choice of stud dogs and puppies reflect this importance.
We also participate in many various dog related disciplines, including Conformation showing, Obedience, Dances with Dogs and Heelwork to Music. Our "Gatto" was the first RR in South Australia to achieve his Dances with Dogs and Heelwork to Music titles - Grand Ch Mikozi Gracious Villain RN ET DWDF.S HTM.S.

However, our dogs will always remain first and foremost our family companions. We have the luxury of living on 200 acres so our dogs have plenty of room to run and it is easy to keep them fit and healthy.
Our puppies are born in our house, raised in a large run and from the age of about 5 weeks, they are allowed to run, supervised, in wide open spaces which greatly enhances their physical and mental development. We believe in providing ongoing support and assistance to our puppy buyers for the life of the puppy. We will always take back a dog we have bred if for any reason the owner is unable to keep him/her.
RRs are a wonderful breed, but are not for everyone so please consider carefully before you buy one and feel free to contact us for breed information. We can draw on over 40 years experience!

Of course multiple Best in Group and Class in Show wins at All Breeds level.
