Intrigue Rhodesian Ridgebacks
Each year the National Breed Club, The Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States (RRCUS), holds a show at the national level. It gives us the opportunity to compete with and see some of the dogs in this country that we normally wouldn't. There are also some events that are offered here that we only see at Nationals (Hunting and Endurance trial titles for example).
Our dogs have done well and we feel it is a great honor to earn placements at such events.
More pictures can be seen in the photo gallery.
