I established Ivy League ridgebacks in 1981 while I was a sophomore in veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania. My foundation bitch CH.Copyline's Norma Rae went on to be a top 10, multiple group winning bitch. The first litter using the Ivy League prefix was bred in 1983. My program is low volume and high quality. All litters are born and raised in the home.  I have been a member of the RRCUS since 1981. I am a past member of the Board of Directors of the RRCUS and I am on the Education Committee.I am the creator of RRCUS Bootcamp, an educatonal experience for the Ridgeback community. I am also on the board of the Mid Hudson Kennel Association.   All dogs used in our breeding program have hip, elbow, thyroid, heart and eye, DM and EOAD screens. With very few exceptions, all of our breeding animals are AKC champions. To date, I have bred, owned or co-bred over seventy five champions. I breed a litter in my home every 2-3 years.  I do not sell dogs over the internet. All prospective puppy owners must be interviewed in person. Since 2000 my best friend, from veterinary school, Dr.Susan Ralston has collaborated with me. Many of our litters are co-bred. Susan's support and dedication has helped me to achieve many of my breeding and showing successes.
