Dog Breed : Thai Ridgeback Dog

Breed: Thai Ridgeback Dog
Height of males: 22 - 24.5". Females: 21 - 23".
Weight of males: 50 - 65 lb. Females: 35 - 45 lb.

Temperament: active, gentle, protective and territorial.
Origin: Thailand during the 1600Ęs. This breed of dog was developed to be a hunting and guard dog. Their body is sturdy, hardy and muscular. The muzzle is of medium length. Their ears are large, and held erect. The coat is smooth and short. Due to this short coat, minimal grooming care is all that is needed. They shed minimally. A quick brushing every so often with a soft brush will help rid the coat of dead hair and keep it shiny and healthy in appearance. This dog, like the Rhodesian Ridgeback, has a row of hair growing in the opposite direction to the rest of its coat along the spine. Their tail is long and is also covered in short, smooth hair. Coat color: black, chestnut, silver blue.

Training: early socialization and obedience. They need to be trained straight away that aggressive behavior will not be tolerated. If trained properly, with respect and love, you will have a well-behaved, loving dog that everyone will enjoy being around. If they are not taught what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior, they will entertain themselves with destructive behavior. Plenty of exercise will also keep this dog happy and healthy, and too tired to get into trouble! Good with children. They tend to be aggressive toward strange dogs. They should be socialized to be around other dogs, people and children from the time they are puppies. They are good with other pets if raised with them from puppyhood. This breed wants to be with the family at all times. Not the dog for a household where the owner/family is always away from the home. They don't do well if left alone in the yard for long stretches of time. The Thai must live indoors as a family member!
