About Us

Welcome to Top Petz!

My name is Sheryl and over the last 30 years I have been owned by some of the most beautiful dogs in the world.  I am a mother of three gorgeous teenage boys, who also share my love of dogs.

Some of the breeds I have had the pleasure of sharing my life with include Border Collie, German Shorthaired Pointer, Cocker Spaniel and Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

I have attended dog obedience classes with every one of my dogs over the last 30 years, training some of them through to gain their Trained Dog Certificate.  

I am a registered dog breeder with the ANKC (Australian National Kennel Council) breeding my beloved Rhodesian Ridgebacks. I am a member of DogsSA and I have been showing dogs in conformation for 6 years.  I am treasurer, membership officer and active committee member of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of SA.

I think it's fairly safe to say that I am completely devoted to dogs.  I can think of nothing better than sharing my love of dogs by helping you care for your dogs too.

Providing the BEST care for your BEST friend!
