RRCUS MENTORS

Members of the Education Committee will serve as Breed Mentors. Breed Mentors will be responsible for giving the RRCUS endorsed breed presentation to All Breed Clubs, AKC judges study groups, potential judges, and at our National Specialty. Breed Mentors will provide ringside mentoring for judges and potential judges.

Members of the Education Committee will review and vote on Breed Advisor applications. The RRCUS BOD shall approve the actions of the Education Committee.

Education committee applicants will be voted on by the Education Committee and approved by the RRCUS BOD.

Complaints concerning either Education Committee members or Breed Advisors will be heard by the RRCUS BOD.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback comes in only one color - light wheaten to red wheaten, as described in the standard. Beware of disreputable breeders who market non-standard colors - including black-and-tan, brindle, and blue - as "rare" or "exotic." They are neither of those things. Instead, these non-standard colors are incorrect for the breed and should never be bred for, nor awarded in the show ring.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR BREED MENTOR

  1. Minimum of ten years breeding Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
  2. Produced a minimum of five conformation champions.
  3. Have bred a pedigree of at least three generations
  4. Promise to uphold the Standard in the most objective and impartial way.
  5. Have served as a breed advisor for a minimum of two years.
