"Kip" started his show career at 8 months making his debut at the Houndshow where he went BP (Best Puppy) and BOB (Best Of Breed) out of 34 Ridgebacks and finally BPIS (Best Puppy In Show). In 15 outings as a puppy Kip won 4 BPISs, 2 RBPISs, 10 BPs, 2 BOBs, 1 RBOB, 1 Puppy group 1 and 1 group 1.

Kip obtained his Junior Warrant title at 15 Months and in November 2001 won the JW finals under Mrs Ferelith Somerfield at Discover Dogs. He is the ONLY Ridgeback to have won this event.

In addition to the above awards, his other wins include BIS at SW Hound Show 2000, BIS South Yorkshire Hound show 2001, RBIS at SW Hound Show 2001, BIS at Herts & Essex Open Show, best Opposite Sex at the 2002 SRRA Ch Show, RBIS at the Rhodesian Ridgeback club of France CH Show and RBIS at the Midlands & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club 2003.

Kip ended 2001 by being the Top Rhodesian Ridgeback in the UK as he had gained the most points under the Dog World system for CCs and Group placings. After a very successful showing career in both the UK and on the continent, he now spends most of his time sleeping at home.

He has proved himself to be a very successful stud dog. His first litter by Kambond Kijakazi by Kiromol produced 4 top winning puppies. Their wins include: Ir CH Kiromol Kianga 10 BPs and joint winner (with her sire) of Best Up & Coming Youngster of 2001, her brother, Kiromol Kiamba has won 3 BPs at CH shows and 1st Junior Dog at Crufts 2002. NordUCh SVCh Emoyeni's Absolute Bhimbo visited from Sweden, I believe it was the first time that a foreign bitch visited the UK under the Pets Parssport. Bhimbo produced a superb litter, pups from this litter now live in Norway, Sweden, Canada and Poland. Kip had an invitation from Belgium for another liaison and pups from that litter are now in Belgium, France and Poland.
