Endurance Testing

Endurance testing is becoming an increasingly popular activity at which Ridgebacks excel.  During the breeds development the Ridgeback was often required to follow wagons on the long treks across the veldts to establish new farms. The relationship of the Ridgeback standard to the Dalmatian standard is no accident as both breeds were utilised as 'carriage' dogs. A number of RRs have already achieved ET titles in Australia and thoroughly enjoy not only the testing but the extensive training walks and runs with their owners that necessarily precedes endurance testing.
