Welcome to Glenaholm Kennels
- Breeders of Rhodesian Ridgebacks -
"These years are of fundamental importance for the definitive affirmation of the breed. Some kennels will in fact produce subjects that left their mark in the pedigrees of next generations. The most authoritative perhaps is the kennel Glenaholm of Mrs. Phyllis McCarthy, Pitermaritzburg, Natal, founded in 1949. This kennel is still active today run by Loraine Venter, Honeydew Transvaal, Mrs. McCarthy's daughter. " - excerpt from
History of the Rhodesian Ridgeback - by Sandra Piscedda
From the 1700’s when the breed was recognised as
being special, and worth developing, Ridgebacks have
been respected for their exceptional character qualities.
In the old days, it did not matter what physical qualities they possessed,
the important thing was they protected the family and especially the children,
and they were outstanding hunters.
