If for any reason you are unable to care for or keep your Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy or dog at any time or point in their lives, we require that you contact us and we will take them back. We will keep them, re-train them, re-home them, whatever it takes to keep them safe, healthy, happy, and know that they are loved.

Regular exercise. This does not mean simply putting your Ridgeback dog out in the back yard. It means your commitment to a regular schedule of walks, runs, training, playing with other dogs, and time spent playing with you. Not only will this interaction between you and your Ridgeback help to strengthen the union between you both, it will help to make your ridgeback that happy, healthy, and well-socialized dog of your dreams. Attending an obedience class with your new puppy dog is a wonderful way to kick off the bonding relationship with he or she and give your new ridgeback puppy that sense of stability they need in becoming a new pack member of your family.

 
Rhodesian Ridgeback exercise
 

Training and exercise start immediately with your ridgeback. Ridgebacks who have solid obedience training, are cared for properly and lovingly, and have quality time spent with them are a joy to live with. They respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner (new pack leader) who took the time to provide that training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life for them. Being consistent is very important. Ridgebacks, just like people, can become bored and even overweight when they do not get out in the fresh air and get exercise.

Riding the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Train Yacolt Washington
 

Hiking and walking with our Ridgebacks is an irreplacable joy in our lives. This southwest Washington area is full of waterfalls to see and hike around. Above is a picture of a couple of our Ridgebacks when we were taking a ride on the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad excursion train. This is a cool one because you can get off of the train for 30 minutes and hike around Yacolt Falls area. We live in Yacolt Washington, so it is quite easy for us to be at any of several waterfalls in less than 25 minutes and 5 of them in less than 10 minutes. Needless to say we and our Ridgebacks love it! We are about 45 minutes north of Portland Oregon, 3 hours south of Seattle Washington, 5 hours south of Vancouver BC, Canada, 5 hours north of Medford Oregon, and 11 hours north of San Francisco California. Should you want to hike the falls areas with your Ridgeback, here is a link to see maps of some of the area waterfalls.

We love our dogs and do everything in our power to keep them happy, be the healthiest possible, live their ultimate, longest lifespan, and keep their immune systems totally strengthened. To do this, we share lots of love, obedience train, feed good food, and give them a daily treat of superior, all natural, tried and proven vitamins! Because it can be somewhat difficult to know the food you are feeding your loved one is a complete, balanced, and healthy diet for each individual puppy and dog going through puppyhood and adulthood, we recommend supplementing your beloved canine friend with the same superior, all natural, human-grade vitamins that we use. They are formulated by a team of veterinarians, physicians, pharmacists, and nutritional scientists and are manufactured in an FDA human-grade facility. We feed these vitamins for the love, health and longevity of our precious friends. It is their favorite, daily treat! Here is a link to check them out.

Every puppy comes with a contract as a way to successfully establish expectations and responsibilities concerning the safety of your new ridgeback dog, requiring that you establish a booster vaccination program with your veterinarian and neuter/spay your companion puppy at the appropriate age. (We neuter/spay between 18 and 26 months old) We require a vet appointment for the second & third series shots that will be needed. Our vet gives: 4 shots of (Distemper-Hepatitis / Parainfluenza / Parvo) combination about 3-4 weeks apart, then a yearly booster. Also all dogs receive a rabies shot between 4 - 12 months old (first one good for 1 year then every 3 years in Washington State) Each state and county has it's own laws and ordinances regarding the time of canine rabies shots and licensing. Your vet will tell you if you are living in an area with heartworms and if you need monthly heartworm medication, leptospious, corona, lyme's shots, or rattlesnake vaccine.

We will fly on non-stop, heated, fully pressurized and air conditioned pet safe flights only. Call Diana 360-686-1151 or email   diana@loveyourridgeback.com   for pictures, reservations and additional information.

One of our missions at ApacheRidge Ranch is to provide for the rescue, care and rehoming of abandoned or unwanted Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs occasionally, as well as to love, protect and preserve the integrity and welfare of the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed. A home where everyone gives the dog an opportunity to live up to its potential as a great friend and canine companion. Some of these Rescued Ridgebacks come from wonderful, loving homes that had to give them up due to major, life-changing events like divorce, separation, moving into a nursing home, going overseas, death, major illnesses, etc. Some, however, have lived difficult lives where their owners were unprepared for the lifestyle requirements of the breed or they did not spend the time to properly train their dogs or they may have lost someone they loved very much. In any case, they often go through an adjustment period when they join their new family, which can be sometimes difficult. Sometimes we are able to acquire a complete background of their health and temperament, sometimes that is not available.

Our goal is to nurture them, make sure they are taken to a veterinarian for a health check-up and immunization, help them adjust, and find these sweet animals responsible owners who are committed to the dog's needs -- exercise, socialization, understanding, obedience training, patience, love and plenty of "quality" time spent with their dog. Sometimes this means you will have to re-arrange your work or other schedules to attend to your dog's needs, or arrange for someone else: like a puppy or doggie daycare to do this for you. When you work 9, 10, or more hours each day away from home and away from your dog, then it might not be the best time right now for you to have a dog -- regardless of how much you love dogs and want one. You must think of what is good for and fair to your dog.
 
Washington and Oregon Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppies
 

We do not always have the precious opportunity to have one of these special dogs in our home, but when do, we like to place them within driving distance of our home here in Washington, so they are placed into homes in either Oregon or Washington. We can also direct you to other places to look here in the northwest. A good place to start is Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue. If you live somewhere other than Oregon or Washington, we can direct you to rhodesian ridgeback rescues who are closer to you and can possibly match you up with one of these special rhodesian ridgebacks in your area. A good place to start looking is Ridgeback Rescue of The United States.

Feel free to email:  diana@loveyourridgeback.com   for more information as to the rescue organization that has rescue ridgebacks available in your area.
