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.

Click here for a few photos from our last "CBARRC Fun Day."

Other events like lure coursing practices, herding instinct tests, etc. may be offered when there is enough interest and support for those events.

AKC Lure Coursing Tests and Trial
Saturday, November 19, 2016
Hanover Shoe Farms, Littlestown, PA
This event is just a “more organized” CBARRC Fun Day! You will be able to run your Ridgeback(s) just as you have in the past, with the possible added bonus of maybe earning an official AKC title.

You have two options for entering your Ridgeback to run alone: 1) Singles (they will run in the Trial and they will run twice – once in Prelims and once at Finals). 2) Junior Courser (they will run in the Test and they will only run one time).

More information coming soon.
