Dinah enjoying the spring sun (April 2014)
Welcome to Paradigm Ridgebacks. We are a small boutique establishment breeding only one litter every couple years. While we do successfully show our dogs in AKC conformation events to obtain their championship titles, we primarily enjoy our ridgebacks as simple companions -- on the couch or on the trail.
Nonetheless, the owners of our puppies successfully compete at the highest level -- whether it be in the conformation, obedience or agility rings, on the field lure-coursing or, best of all, in therapy. That is because we strive for a balanced dog -- temperament, health, physical characteristics and a nurturing home environment all of which provides a foundation for our pup's do be versatile loving members of your family.
Our household is solely comprised of female ridgebacks, with our present companions (as of Aug.'15) being Dinah (2005), Eva (2007) and Shiloh (2012). Please check out our "Stud Dog" page, however, for a nice selection of boys that may be available for breeding purposes.
We are members of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States (RRCUS) and the New England Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (NERRC).
We hope you enjoy perusing our website.
