Get to know the Thai Ridgeback
All you need to know about the breed
Even those in the know where canines are concerned aren’t too familiar with the Thai Ridgeback breed. That’s because this very unique dog has had an isolated upbringing in their native Thailand. Would-be owners can relish in the fact that they won’t see their dog coming and going at the end of every leash.
A taut, muscular body is the result of years of this dog’s use for hunting large game of all sorts. The Thai Ridgeback of today is used largely as a family companion, with correct training, and makes a very faithful one at that.
The Thai Ridgeback’s polished appearance makes this an eye-catching dog, with their alert manner a plus for those who cherish that in an active dog. That said, the Thai Ridgeback may not be the best breed for first-time owners. It’s not that they don’t make a good domestic pet, it’s just that their nonstop approach may not have universal appeal. The breed has an activity level rated as moderate but their traditional use in a hunting and guardian capacity is hard to shake, even when they are a more domesticated dog. Make sure any breed is the one for you before welcoming them into your home.
