Default RE: Does anyone hunt with Rhodesian Ridgebacks?

You're right about the catching it part. I put her on a lure course and they had trouble keeping the lure ahead of her for 800 yds (until she tired). My dog must have been raised with cats, etc. because she wouldn't harm a kitten. On the other hand I've heard that 3 Ridgebacks was the equal of a pride of 5 lions. They would seperate one and keep it at bay until the hunter could take his shot. She's the smartest dog I've ever owned.
