Caesar lives with my Brother’s family. He has 4 kids to play with, and the oldest Patricia is taking him to Obedience lessons and may even show him sometimes. The rest of the time he will be shown by me. Caesar handled by 13yr old Patricia and graduated from Beginners Obedience on 6th April 2004. Due to Caesar’s habit of bouncing shoulder high in the show ring, he is also known as captain kangaroo.
Caesar has done very well in the show ring from the very start. He obtained his first Best of Breed at 6 months of age. At the 7th National RR Show in Melbourne March 2004, Caesar was placed 1st in Minor Puppy Dog & Opposite Minor Puppy in Show (His sister Ginny was placed 2nd in Minor Puppy Bitch and their dad was Best in Show). He has many wins including Best of Breeds under Breed Specialists.
Caesar obtained his title at 12 months of age and is well on his way to his Grand Champion title. He has multiple Best in Groups, Runner up Best in Groups, Class in Groups and Class in Shows. On the 2nd June 2006 at Junee Kennel Club, Caesar won his first Best in Show All Breeds under Hound Specialist Dr G Cowie (ACT). He was also the winner of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (Inc)'s 2005 Ridgeback of the Year and All Age points scores and 2006 Ridgeback of the Year. Caesar gained the final pts for his Grand Ch, on 29 Oct 2006, aged 3yrs and 1 month.
Now he is semi-retired from showing, Caesar is putting his jumping skills to good use in the Agility Ring. Being a big dog with plenty of enthusiasm has its draw backs, he tends to forget to duck in tunnels and sends flexi tunnels flying, plus finds bending thru the weave poles hard. But he has managed to pass and place in both Novice Jumping and Agility. Caesar gained his Novice Snooker (SD) title in August 2011, becoming the first Ridgeback Male in Australia with this title. He gained his Novice Agility (AD ) and Novice Jumping (JD) titles at the end of 2012. He was named Tuggeranong Dog Training Club’s Novice Jumping Dog of the Year for 2012 and Novice Agility Dog of the Year for 2013.
Caesar is a proven sire, with titled progeny. Frozen Semen is available to approved bitches.
