*** What to Expect When You are Expecting... a Rat Terrier! ***

Rat Terriers really are "like a big dog in a small dog body"! They seem to forget they are a small dog - except when they try to lounge with their family members on the chair, couch or under the blankets on the bed! Rat Terriers will alert bark to unexpected sounds at the doors or windows, yet they aren't typically "yappy". Rat Terriers are a durable breed that can be handled by young children (with proper socialization and supervision) without fear of injuring the dog.

********************* 

Ratitatt Rat Terriers was founded by Valerie Luchsinger as a hobbyist beginning in 2003 with our first Rat Terrier, a female puppy named Kali (GRCH King Pen's Kalifornia Ratitatt BIMBS). Valerie chose this breed due to enjoying a family Rat Terrier as a child - in addition to the intelligence, health and durability, low maintenance of the breed (minimal grooming - a "wash and go" breed with just nail trimming). We've been so pleased with Kali and her accomplishments that we later purchased our foundation sire, Buzzy (GRCH King Pen RB Buzzabout Ratitatt BIS RBIS BIMBS RBIMBS CGC). Both these dogs live in our home and have proven themselves in the conformation ring, with honors of being on the UKC Top Ten list for 4 years in a row (Kali was #8 and #9 in 2005 and 2004, Buzzy is ranked #1 in 2006 and #3 in 2007)!

********************* 

Ratitatt Rat Terriers strive to show and develop Rat Terriers with excellent structure, great looks, temperament and health. We are continually trying to improve the breed based on general correct canine structure and the written UKC and AKC-FSS breed standards. Dogs from our bloodline typically are very intelligent, willing to please, have prey drive, yet are easy to live with in the home, making great family pets. When we choose to breed a litter on great occasion, we strive to produce a well-rounded, healthy working and companion dog. Our offspring are currently active in the conformation ring, agility, narcotics searching, and just being loving house dogs.
