Proudly producing happy, healthy hounds since 1979



Ingwe Kennels is home to 3 Rhodesian Ridgebacks, 6 Whippets, 1 horse and 5 cows.

We are situated in the Gippsland area of Victoria, Australia, living on 40 acres of pasture and surrounded by many acres of native bush land. Both the hounds and I enjoy many long horse rides exploring the hills and valleys.

We purchased our first Ridgeback in 1977 and have been hooked ever since, breeding our first litter in 1979 and entering the show scene with a bitch from that litter.

We aim to breed healthy, happy hounds suitable for a family lifestyle, at all times endeavouring to maintain that true to type Rhodesian Ridgeback. We place a great emphasis on temperament, both in and out of the Showring, and choose the sires of our litters accordingly……….they have to be sound, in mind & body !!

Our Ridgebacks are hip and elbow x-rayed and scored under the AVA Willis scheme and also DNA tested for Degenerative Myelopathy.

Puppies are registered (main or limited), microchipped, vaccinated & wormed before going to their new homes. Pet puppies (limited register) are also desexed.

We bred our first litter of Whippets in 2014 and our goal is to chose Sires who complement our bitches, maintaining that true whippet shape  -  “a series of graceful curves with no exaggerations”

All enquiries, whether it be for a puppy, or just seeking general information on the breed, can be sent to the email address below………..or you could do it the old fashioned way and give us a ring !

We hope you enjoy the following pages…………..
