Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club


The Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (BARRC) is a non-profit club with the intent to assist in Rhodesian  Ridgeback rescue and to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of pure-bred Rhodesian Ridgebacks. 


New members - go to the Membership

page for an application!

Welcome to the Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (BARRC). BARRC was started in April 1997. Our membership consists of families owned by Ridgebacks from Santa Rosa to Monterey to Sacramento. We urge our members and breeders to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience trials, tracking tests, field trials, and other dog-related events.


We hope this website answers your questions about Rhodesian Ridgebacks in the San Francisco bay area. We encourage you to contact breeders on the Breeder Directory for more information about the breed.
