Take the time to visit the exhibitions and study information about the breed. Chat with breeders and other Rhodesian Ridgeback owners.

A Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy is best taken at the age of 2 - 3 months.

Find out which vaccinations have been given and which are still to come, and whether deworming has been performed.
Pay attention to the conditions in which Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies are kept. The room should be clean, an unpleasant odor should alert.
