After trying and , crossing with collies gave van Rooyen the best lion hunters, as his son Cornelis Jr. tells us. Pointers, bulldogs (perhaps boerboels, which were actually mainly larger mastiffs) and greyhounds are generally credited in the European core of this mix, with larger terriers such as and perhaps great Danes. Modern Rhodesian ridgeback breeders speak of some of their ridgebacks being too 'mastiffy' though it is uncertain what extent, if any, of actual mastiff heredity may have entered, as from the boerboels and their descendants prevalent in these territories. After initially greyer, rough-coated originating from Helm's dogs, van Rooyen's subsequently crossed offspring turned to redder coats, incorporating the KhoiKhoi landrace dog's ridges already carried in Boer dogs within his genomes. They became the foundation stock of a kennel which developed dogs over the next 35 years with the ability to bay lions: that is, a pack of 4-6 Rhodesian ridgebacks holds lions at bay while the hunter makes the kill, though an individual Rhodesian ridgeback is no match for an adult lion in a fight. These dogs were used to hunt not only lions but also other game, including wild pigs and , and they can kill a baboon independently of a human hunter's collaboration.
1. Coats – Hold on now, before you go rolling your eyes thinking coats are for those fancy, city-slicker breeds…I have a short-coated breed. AND, a breed with very little natural insulation. Have you ever had your hands on a well-conditioned Vizsla? You can feel muscle and even the skeletal structure. What you don’t feel is fat or an undercoat. This impacts this breed’s ability to keep warmer in the very cold, harsh winter conditions. In addition to coats helping to keep our crew comfortable when out hunting, training, or even during their off leash runs, the coats–especially the neoprene “hunting vests”–help protect their bodies from getting too banged/cut up. After multiple days of hunting, my Vizslas get cut up and bloody (depending on the cover we hunt of course) as they dive into the places the game they seek will be holding. Their neoprene vests take a lot of the punishing scrapes the thickets, branches, and barbed wire fences deliver. Fewer cuts on their bodies help them recover faster and be more comfortable overall. This may sound like we coddle our hunting dogs. Perhaps we do. If putting coats on them in cold, wet conditions is coddling then I’m okay with this. I think about how hard they work–how much heart they put into the hunt. I respect this and will do my part to keep them as comfortable and as healthy as possible so they can thrive and hopefully hunt comfortably into their golden years.
