Welcome to Glenaholm Kennels
-Breeders of Rhodesian Ridgebacks-

Glenaholm Kennel was founded by Mrs Phyllis McCarthy in 1949.

We breed to preserve the original qualities that have captivated all Rhodesian Ridgeback owners from the beginning.

“These years are of fundamental importance for the definitive affirmation of the breed. Some kennels will in fact produce subjects that left their mark in the pedigrees of next generations. The most authoritative perhaps is the kennel Glenaholm of Mrs. Phyllis McCarthy, Pitermaritzburg, Natal, founded in 1949.” excerpt from History of the Rhodesian Ridgeback – by Sandra Piscedda.

The kennel is still active today, being run by Norah Ormerod in the USA and Litia McCarthy in South Africa.
