Welcome to Lookout Ridge Rhodesian Ridgebacks LLC

We specialize in Preservation Breeding of Rhodesian Ridgebacks by producing purebred top quality Ridgebacks for family pets, show and competition. Lookout Ridge Rhodesian Ridgebacks was established in beautiful Boulder Colorado in 2018.  While we are the “new kid on the block” we intend to become a leading kennel looking to preserve and maintain this noble breed according to the Breed Standards producing healthy offspring from DNA tested, health certified AKC Champions. We are members in good standing of RRCUS, Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of United States, and CRRC, Colorado Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and abide by their Codes of Conduct and Ethics.

We currently do not have puppies or plans for a litter. Please check back with us.


Our first priority is raising dogs with the best possible temperament. Our goal is a pet that will be a friendly member of the family that while alerting for danger will not bite or cause other problem that can occur with this breed.


While not all our dogs are for show, our goal is to breed to the Standard and constantly strive to improve the breed. To this end we actively show and encourage any potential buyers to also participate in this incredibly rewarding activity.


Our dogs would be ideal for such activities such as Agility, Obedience, Lure Coursing, Fast Cat, sent work, endurance running and other outdoor physical activities.

Absolutely wonderful experience with LRRR

Rick and Corene are absolutely incredible breeders. We are so grateful to have met them and received our puppy— Huck — from Zoey's January 2020 litter.
Rick and Corene were very knowledgeable and helpful as we navigated getting to know the breed and how best to care for our pup.
Huck has been an incredible addition to our family. He's wonderful with our young children, wicked smart, very handsome— I can't take him anywhere without him being showered with compliments 🙂 he's a great trail running buddy, and his temperament is pure charm.
I cannot recommend LRRR highly enough.

Loving dedication!

As a breeder of Rhodesian Ridgebacks finding the best home for that conformational candidate is always a challenge, showing takes commitment, and sound breeding takes research and dedication, Rick and Corene are the best! We couldn't be happier with their involvement with the breed and their love and care of their own pets as well as their support of their own RR puppy family. They have brought a breath of fresh air and a love of the breed to the Ridgeback community. We look forward to the 2022 litter of puppies and the contribution they continue to make breeding and competing with these amazing dogs.

Best Breeder Ever!

You have found the right place to find a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy!
Not only were Rick and Corene interested in breeding healthy and beautiful puppies with the best temperament, but also they wanted to make sure the puppies got a forever loving home. And once you take your puppy home, they follow you eery step of the way, answering questions and giving helpful advice.
We had to go out of state to find our puppy, and we are so glad we did.
This is our third Rhodesian Ridgeback, and he is gorgeous and show quality (even though we are not showing), and is the most affectionate one of all!

Lookout Ridge Rhodesian Ridgeback Breeder

Our dog from the 2020 litter has exceeded our expectations. He has a great temperament and has become a valued family member. Archie has been extremely healthy and shows no signs of genetic abnormalities. The selection process to match him with our family was seamless and the Gildersleeves have been very supportive throughout the entire process.

Best Breeder and People EVER!!!

Rick and Corene have been an absolute dream. We had already had a RR from another breeder and that was a nightmare. Lookoutridge has been fantastic in every aspect of the process.
We had no idea what showing was like, nor had we ever even been to a dog show. Turns out, we have found a lifelong passion. All thanks to the Gildersleeve's. its an absolute blast. We have met so many wonderful people who also love Ridgebacks, its amazing everyone associated with the Gildersleeve's is amazing and very knowledgeable. We have had so many questions and they have the answers. From Vets and processes to what to look for in a Ridgeback. They have supported us in every show and every question regarding the health of our boy.
I cannot stress enough, how wonderful this experience has been. Our Gunnison has the best temperament and is the kindest, sweetest thing ever. He is our pet but also awesome in the ring. Happy to endorse this breeder and all aspects of the breeding process.
