We are family focussed Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders who breed occasionally, selectively, and only when we want to add to our family of dogs.  

We health check our dogs for hip and elbow dysplasia, degenerative myelopathy (DM) and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME), and our foundation has also been tested and cleared for eyes, heart and thyroid. We supported the excellent work and assisted in the research for Early Onset Adult Deafness (EOAD) in the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed submitting results which all came back High Confidence Clear. Good health and exceptional temperament are of paramount importance to us and we only breed dogs who have been health tested with good results and dogs who are exceptional ambassadors for our breed.

Since our move from the USA in March 2011 (where we were known as Blue Sky Ridgebacks) we are proud to announce our UK kennel name Colkeririn Rhodesian Ridgebacks, our affix granted by The Kennel Club, England on June 24, 2011.
