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.

Upcoming Events

The scheduling of any future BARRC Membership Meetings is on hold until further notice.

The BARRC Fast Cat trial on March 28 is postponed until July 18. All entries will be moved to that date. If you have any questions, contact Michelle Price.

The BARRC 17th Annual Independent Specialty has been cancelled, along with the other shows in the Harvest Moon Classic. We are all heartbroken but hope to see everyone in 2021!!
