North Ridge Race Team

Our racing experience began many years ago with retired race dogs that were purchased from other kennels that Brads nephew Gary Fetterley would take to local races. Gary started in his early teens while guiding for the business and continued until he went to college. These where great experiences and gave a strong foundation for how we wanted to develop the kennel for the future.


This racing experience helped to develop an idea of what type of dog we wanted to breed into our kennel.  Over the past several years we have been able to develop a line of dogs that we are confident in and that are competitive in the racing circuit.


In 2013 we started entering some races in the region and have been very happy with our results.

It has been a great experience for us and the dogs and we are thrilled with their performance and our results so far.
