Kandu is in Southern Oregon, about 35 miles north of the California border. We have four acres of organically maintained rolling oak and pine pastures for the dogs to play on.

Our fields.




The Ridgeback pens are in/out of a building off our carport that is heated and airconditioned. The RRs run free during the day unless the gate needs to be open, or we have visitors. They are always in their quarters at night, except for the one or two who spend the night in the house.

Ridgeback Indoor Habitat


Usually we only have two or three of the Ridgebacks in the house at the same time. But when they all come in, they quickly settle down and unless we have food, we hardly know they are there. Of course, these are full adults. Puppies and adolescent Ridgebacks are another story.
