Your Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy

BOOK Main Isue

When my wife and I first encountered the Rhodesian Ridgeback, we knew it was the dog for us. I consider myself an experienced dog owner, yet every other page of the book had me thinking to myself, ‘I didn’t know that.’ If you are looking to purchase a Ridgeback, this book is a must-have. It will serve as a reference for years to come.

Great book and beautiful pictures! It is definitely a must-have for new Rhodesian Ridgeback owners, as it is very specific to the breed. A lot of information packed into chapters that are fun to read, as Denise has a very warm and entertaining ‘voice.’

If you are getting a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, you need this book. You may think you know everything there is to know about raising puppies. You could have raised hundreds of them. But every time you step into a new breed, you should always review the breed specific information. This book is the perfect companion for just that. … Worth every penny and then some.

We have been lucky enough to have Ridgebacks in our lives since 1999, and it was both entertaining and enlightening to hear Denise’s voice bring this wonderful breed to life. She understands their quirks, antics, serious sides and lovableness, plus thoroughly covers dos and do nots. This is a book that I have underlined and will continue to refer to for years to come. My only regret is that we did not have this book when we brought that first Ridgeback puppy home.

This truly is the ultimate guide to Ridgeback puppies! Great in-depth information about this wonderful breed in an easily digestible form. It’s a fun read and is able to be incorporated into your life immediately. The stunning pictures bring all the information to life. I highly recommend it for anyone who owns a Ridgeback or is thinking about getting one.
