US Ridgeback Breeder Recommendations

**Note, although the following breeders are recommended, it is still important that you ask for proof of health testing results. Currently we only support breeding practices that incorporate concern for co-efficiency of inbreeding by not breeding related dogs in the first 10 generations of their pedigree. By closely breeding relatives we have seen an increase of cancers, allergies, and reproductive issues including small litter sizes.

International Ridgeback Breeder Recommendations

**Again, please ask for health testing results. Importing a puppy from a foreign country is not as difficult as it sounds. The only difference is not being able to visit the litter ahead of time. Most breeders will have you fly in to meet the breeder, their dogs, and pick up your puppy. The puppy flies in the cabin with you, as they would if you were flying domestically. This is not uncommon, and is recommended.
