A little information about me: I moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2005 with  two dogs. 'Henry' a Labrador and 'Scamp' a working Cocker Spaniel. They are now sadly deceased, but happily lived their remaining years here in lovely NZ. I have had a passion for animals since forever and have worked as a Veterinary Nurse since 1995, qualifying with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, London in 2000. My partner and I live on a rural lifestyle block in the Lower Kaimai ranges just 15km from Tauranga. We show our lovely Ridgebacks as often as our busy life permits. 

I purchased 'Nyah' my first Rhodesian Ridgeback in 2008. 'Nyah' was the foundation of my kennels & has gifted me & others with wonderful puppies for me to continue my successful breeding program. I sadly lost my heart dog in October 2018. She will be forever in my heart and I have wonderful memories of my special girl.

My kennel prefix 'Koruridge' was chosen as the 'Koru' is a symbol representing new life, growth, strength and vitality.

I pride myself on the time & effort that goes in to finding the right breeding lines, temperament & dogs to compliment my females. I have imported two males both from well respected breeders & specialty judges for the breed, and more recently a lovely girl from Lithuania. I have also over the years imported frozen semen to offer a wider gene pool to NZ & to offer others a fantastic family pet or show dog. Dogs I have bred are active in Agility, Rally-O, Obedience & the Show scene.


 Rhodesian Ridgeback's have become my main passion and hobby, so what are YOU waiting for!

We invite you to meet our loyal, loving, magnificent dogs.

Take a look but be aware RR can be addictive!
