Carol and Jerry Vesely live in Morgan Hill, California. Carol has bred, owned, and trained Ridgebacks since 1988.

The goal we have for our Ridgebacks is to be well-rounded, versatile members of the family. Temperament, conformation, health, and performance are all important factors in our breeding program.

Take a look at our family members, our puppies and their owners. You will see that we provide a loving home for all our Ridgebacks as well as full support and guidance for all our puppy families.
