Welcome to Tifari Rhodesian Ridgebacks
The name "Tifari " is Swahili and means "one who inspires." Our dogs
us to do more with them, and with life, so we are a kennel known for
performance and versatility. Not only do we have beautiful dogs, but
intelligent and willing to work for us. Our Ridgebacks are members of
our family first and foremost, but together we also enjoy competing
Agility, Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Therapy Work, and
Lure-Coursing. Tifari has been extremely successful and we can proudly
say we have had dogs in the top 20 lists in all of the performance and
conformation rankings! We
now have two Tifari Locations, Michigan and Texas. Together, we work towards the goal of owning versatile ridgebacks
and occasionally producing beautiful pups with sound health and temperaments.
We hope they will provide their new homes with the same love and fulfillment
that we have found with our dogs. Our ridgebacks also visit classrooms of
all ages to help teach canine safety and awareness to children. We also
attend many rescue animal fund-raiser events to help raise money and educate
the public on ridgebacks. Enjoy the website and feel free to
contact us with any questions.
