DAITANNI ACRES is situated in the foothills west of Winters, California.   Wild life is abundant making for a peaceful setting. 

Over the years my dogs were exhibited  in AKC conformation, obedience, tracking events plus working with agility, temperament tests, canine good citizen tests. The dogs obtained national and world wide recognition based on their accomplishments including Award of Merits from National Specialties, Register of Merits, Championships, Obedience, and Tracking titles. 

Through my dogs and taking them to shows I have gone to places all over the country.  Plus I traveled to other countries.  It's been a nice way to meet many wonderful people, traveled to many unique places, all while adhering to the breed code of ethics.

In 2001, I purchased "Spirit" my first Rhodesian Ridgeback for show, companionship, lure coursing, and what ever else comes up.   She is spayed so will never be bred.   My second Rhodesian Ridgeback was purchased also in 2001.  His name is "Panache".
