Bartess kennels have been involved with Rhodesian Ridgebacks for over 25 years. We do not breed on a regular basis, only when the time is right.We are committed to this breed and thoroughly enjoy where they have taken us. We enjoy showing, obedience & tracking and to date have had great success. We offer advice freely and with enthusiasm.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog
You are his life, his love, his leader
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
