Who is CBARRC?
The Chesapeake Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (CBARRC) is comprised of Ridgeback owners and enthusiasts in the DC metropolitan area and its surrounding neighbors.
We are dedicated to providing resources to all Ridgeback owners. Our two main events each year called “CBARRC Fun Days” are a terrific opportunity to educate prospective Ridgeback owners about our breed. While mostly a social occasion for their owners, we also provide great activities for our Ridgebacks to participate in as well.
Other events like lure coursing practices, herding instinct tests, etc. may be offered when there is enough interest and support for those events.
As of Dec 2016, CBARRC is an officially licensed AKC Breed Club !
We are licensed to hold AKC lure coursing events and Sanction B conformation matches.
Thanks to our members, the CBARRC board, and our friends who have helped us and worked so hard towards attaining this goal !
