RR's since 1976. (Whippets since 1986.) National and Specialty Best In & Runner-up Best In Show winners; Multiple Best of Breeds at Royal shows. Temperament our priority. ANKC judges since 1989. "There's no substitute for experience!"
After 40 years in the breed, we will not be having any more RR litters. Frozen Semen is available from our last RR, Duke, (Supreme Ch Elangeni Dream Run), who is and always has been, our much loved companion and house dog. The last of our breeding, Elsa, is now with Addam Barter and Lee Fletcher of Juzrival Rhodesian Ridgebacks and we are thrilled that they are continuing with our legacy of fantastic temperaments and good health.
Next Litter Planned: Unknown
Prefix : RIDGESETTER (Whippet)
Whippets since 1986 (Ridgebacks since 1976). Breeders of specialty and all breeds Best in Show.
If you are looking for a funny, sweet and loving dog with a slightly wild and wicked character, then we have just the dog for you. Confident, healthy, happy, outgoing Whippets assured.
We don't breed for colour so please don't contact us asking for a specific colour. We breed for health and temperament and to meet the breed standard. Colour is immaterial to us and we hope, to the owners of our dogs. Adult dogs are cardiac screened and certified clear by Dr Rita Singh at SASH, Nth Ryde.
At Ridgesetter, we offer experience. We are both ANKC Judges (John is All Breeds); we have both been on various committees. Currently Toni is the Hound Co-ordinator for Dogs NSW and also holds TAFE Certificates in Animal Attendants and Domestic Animal Care as well as a Delta Instructors Certificate and for several years worked in the pet care industry.
We are excited to announce a relatively large litter is due 14 January 2018 from our stunning fawn, Sandy (Ch Ridgesetter Summer Loving) and the fabulous Twitch (Supreme Ch Arjai Like A Criminal). Both these whippets are stunning movers and strong credentials in the showring. Puppies will be available for new owners around end of March 2018.
