Best Hungarian Breed Dog – V.RRCH ClubShow 2022

My wonderful child! Yes, I think that we managed to overcome the dog-owner relationship, He means much, much more to me than anything. We met when I was completely alone and in a very short time, he managed to completely gain my trust and occupy almost my entire heart. I love him unconditionally and I am sure that this feeling is mutual, there have already been examples of him protecting me and also of me confronting an attacking dog because I knew I had to act. I don’t know a more balanced dog than him, a perfect companion and an unprecedented friend.

But of course, he’s also a ridgeback. We went to many dog schools and tried many things before we reached the current state. Of course, Zion was not born to be an obedient dog either, before anyone thinks, it is a lot of work to get a RR BH exam, but luckily he did it. Together. I have always been and still am Zion’s driving force. He is willing to work with me and obeys me. He is the role model of the typical one-owner dog. He follows me like a shadow, he feels good when he knows where I am. I think he could do anything for me.

He is a fully socialized dog, keeping his distance from strangers at first, but he is inquisitive. The right person can easily get close to him. He loves children, so much so that I previously wanted to train him as a therapy dog, where we could have helped injured children, but unfortunately, I had to face the fact that there is no examiner would allow a Rhodesian Ridgeback trained as a guard dog of this size to pass on that exam. So this dream of ours has dashed a few years ago. He gets along well with other dogs, but he is also a dominant dog, he likes to be the center of attention and has a firm attitude towards male dogs in the same weight group or above him.

In his pack, he plays the role of Leader, he usually looks out for the others and is also happy to participate in a game from time to time. He loves to roll in fresh dirt and freshly cut grass, fortunately, he also likes water, and he loves to swim and jump off rocks.

In addition, he has a disciplined and dignified appearance in the ring. He holds the title of Interchampion and is the champion and grand champion of many countries. He also won the prize for the most beautiful movement and the prize for the most beautifully bred Hungarian ridgeback. In addition, he is a multiple BIS3 winner and owner of many CACs and CACIBs.

As far as I know, he has no inherited diseases!
