The Team

Meet the members of TEAM RIDLEY

We sometimes call Erik 'superstud' as he has lots of children all over the world. He lived in Denmark for a while, but is now back at home with us. One of our Danish friends described Erik as a 'very kind dog' and that sums him up completely. He is Tomáš's dad. He allows Tomáš to think he is the boss, but we all know better. One look from Erik and Tomáš gives way to him. He is 13 years old.

Tomáš is our boss dog. He takes his responsibilities very seriously, and when the team are out together he wears an orange collar with a bell so that he can be seen and heard - wherever Tomáš is, the others will be close by because he will go and round them up if they stray too far away. He is nearly 11 years old, and is Erik's son

Anika is the pretty. When she was young she was known as the Asbo Kid, but she has matured to become an excellent mother who has had lovely children - even if she is still a bit scatty at times! She is 9 years old, and is Tomáš' daughter.

Xanthe is on the go all the time. She is the brainy one of the family, and has enjoyed training to track deer. When she's out in the forest she has her nose to the ground all the time. She loves to greet everyone, especially small children, and she can often be seen rolling on her back for a tummy tickle. She is 6 years old and is Anika's daughter.

Xanthe's brother Xaver is the cuddly one - it's amazing how many people meet him and immediately want to give him a cuddle! He is so laid back that he can often be found fast asleep on his back.

Another of Anika's kids, Daisy lives with Chris McIvor, but is a valuable member of TEAM RIDLEY and can often be seen out and about with the rest of the gang. She is 7 years old.

Eliška also lives with Chris and was bred by our good friend Jayne Rusby. She is a very sweet girl who is Erik's grand-daughter and cousin to Xaver and Xanthe, and she is 4 years old.

SILAS was bred by Diana Grant and lives with Amanda Halling. He has a special place in TEAM RIDLEY because it was after meeting us at the Bowood Game Fair that Amanda decided that the Cesky Terrier was just the right breed for her. He is 4 years old, loves playing with his ball, and likes to hang around with his best mate Xaver - the rest of us keep out of their way, as they usually have a great game of chase!


What can we say about Dora except she is Ysadora-ble! She lives with Silas, and, like him, loves to play with her ball (or more often, with his ball!). She is Eliška's baby sister and will be 2 in July.


Olexa is Erik's daughter, so Tomáš's half-sister, whilst Eliška and Dora are her daughters. She is 8 years old
