RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK BOOT CAMP

The RRCUS Education Committee is committed to carry on with much needed education, both for new comers to our breed and for our seasoned breeders and exhibitors.

We have developed an extraordinary and unique tool for all: Rhodesian Ridgeback Boot Camp.

We encourage all Regional Clubs and/or Groups or interested individuals to organize a "Stand Alone" Ridgeback Seminar. This Boot Camp is an all day learning Seminar. Click here to see the information and what this great program includes.
