When we sell a puppy, we feel that we are selling something of ourselves. We have taken care of them for 4 months, through conception to birth and parenting. It is therefore very important to us that we know the puppy will have a a good, active and permanent home in it’s new family. We require that you give your dog a good and loving home, where it becomes a part of the family.
Rhodesian Ridgeback is a very versatile breed that loves to be active. We want to ensure that our puppies come to caring and loving home, who takes care of them and give them everything they need such as time and love, veterinary care, quality food, physical and mental training, attend puppy courses and further training. It is very important that our buyers have thought long and well on the responsibility it is to own and care for a dog. We expect that you set aside time for your puppy in the beginning. Before being left home alone for long periods, the puppy should become known in it’s new home, be houscleen and feel safe. You must have the opportunity to take a holiday or to have the opportunity to have your puppy with you at work for the first periode. For the next few months the puppy should not be alone for a long time and you need to find solutions for this if you can’t stay home or bring the puppy to work.
The puppy must be socialized and trained so that it will learn to work as a family dog, and the owners must learn to handle the working capacity and self assureness in the dog. We demand that the new owners attend puppy classes and preferably advanced courses with the dog. This has to do with both the socialization with other dogs and people, and that dog and owner gets a good starting point for a good working relationship and happy everyday life.
You must be able to give your dog quality food, veterinary care when needed, vaccination and insurance. We also require your dog to bee HD and ED x-rayed between 12 and 20 months. We also require that you attend dog mentality assessment, arranged by us, when the dog is between 16 to 24 months old.
Our puppies are raised in the family. The puppies are raised inside our house, and are disposed to all the sounds, smells and impressions from a normal home. We also take our puppies in the car when they are old enough, visit other places, and let them get to know other environments than our home. We have many visitors as the puppies grow up, so that the puppies are social and loves people. They are handled a lot by us to learn that it’s OK to be turned on their back, picked up, having their claws cut etc etc. They will also meet children and cats, horses and other dogs. We play a lot with the puppies, giving them an interest for playing, grabbing and fetching. This would give the new owners a good start regarding obedience-training, and also in a hunting situation were the dog has learned on a early stage that it is fun to retrieve. So many important lessons are learned at this age, and we do our outmost to give the puppy the absolutely best start of life, before going to their new homes. The work the breeder does in this period is extremely important for your puppy and its further life. We do our best to give your puppy the very best start in life, before it arrives at it’s new home.
