        CELEBRATING 26 YEARS IN THIS WONDERFUL BREED !

                                   19 years of having our web site ..

Umkimzulu will be busy with activities this years. all the news here.

                         

 SPECIALITY PLANS ...

This year Umkimzulu Dogs  will be exhibiting and attending  several  Speciality Shows. 

 LOOKING TO THE FUTURE RAMBLINGS OF A RETIRED DOG LADY

 I will no longer  be able to handle my dogs in the show rings because of my back and knee injury following my car accident .And I have also managed to further damage my knee having fractured it in 2015 .So I am so grateful for those whom own a show dog from me and  continue on in the rings in my stead and continue to fly the UMKIMZULU flag into the future .Best of luck to everyone and I look forward to putting up the show results ..

MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT ?

It was a humbling experience to me when fellow breeders while on our holiday in Budapest and Helsinki coming  up to me and said I know you you are Umkimzulu I love your dogs !!

BREEDING PLANS

This year I continue to introduce new bloodlines and collaborate with fellow breeders both here and overseas to improve on what we already have .

In my opinion that's what we have to do to keep this breed going forward not just look at what we have in our own pedigrees .Every litter bred we learn something and we can never say we know it all because we don't and our aim is to breed the best

Ridgebacks we can .Titles are great but I don't really take that into consideration when looking at combinations . I look at the DOG not the titles it may or may not have. Health testing again very important to us .DM and EOAD .

TRAVEL PLANS.. 2016 Next trip a 4 week vacation in  Canada .

Jazmin found a new home in Newcastle and we as her breeders have been in contact with her new family .

In this instance the Ridgeback Club had her listed as needing a new home ,as did we on our web site and dogzonline page .

 

 

 

Its not often but sometimes dogs we have bred need a new home  peoples lives change so we are always there to help .Its very emotional for our puppy parents when they have to let a family member go ,we understand and are here to help .
