CopperRidge was one of the first Ridgeback breeders in Arizona to receive the AKC Breeder of Merit Award. We are Lin & Bob Hainlen and we have been breeding/showing Ridgebacks since 1995. We have bred over 50 AKC champions and we have many more currently in the ring.
We know that the best dogs to live with have the best temperaments. Our puppies are exposed to all kinds of stimulus during their early lives to ensure they grow up to be confident adults. We make sure they meet lots of people, young and old, and we expose them to lots of toys and games before they go to their new homes. We are a breeder that is ALWAYS available to our puppy people - no matter how small or large the problem or question may be.
We are dedicated to the betterment of the breed thru careful and planned breedings. All of our breeding pairs have all of their OFA health tests done. We strive to only breed dogs with excellent genetics and temperaments so they can do their job in performance and conformation. We also want to make sure our dogs remain healthy companion for years to come.
