Basics of Thai Ridgeback

Few Americans have even heard of a Thai Ridgeback, much less seen one in person. This breed, which organically evolved in Thailand, has long been a favorite of people looking for a devoted friend and watchdog. Strong-willed and not suitable for inexperienced dog owners, this breed.

The Thai Ridgeback can be an excellent family pet with the right socialization and training. He obviously needs a lot of activity, but older children may keep him active by playing fetch or ball. Running is crucial to the physical and mental health of this breed, so a fenced yard, dog park, or owner who enjoys running are required.

Origin

The Thai Ridgeback is a long-lived breed with no known ancestors that originated in Thailand. They were developed to pull carts, hunt cobras, kill wild boar, and serve as watchdogs. They now offer safety for families with older kids who lead busy lives.

Pedigree

There are no documents describing how the Thai Ridgeback evolved. This breed is thought to be primordial and is thought to have originated in the Middle Ages. Some people think that the Funan Ridgeback Dog, Hottentot Dog, Rhodesian Ridgeback, and Phu Quoc Ridgeback are related in some way. Scientific research into this is currently being done using DNA analysis of this breed.

Food/Diet

The Thai Ridgeback needs to be fed a high-quality diet of dry kibble because it is an active and high-energy dog. The food needs to be prepared for the amount of activity of the specific dog. Because wet foods can result in dental cavities, gum infections, and poor breath, dry food is crucial for the oral health of this breed.

The Thai Ridgeback is an independent breed and needs a knowledgeable owner who can impose himself as the family's head.

Training

The Thai Ridgeback is an independent breed and needs a knowledgeable owner who can impose himself as the family's head. Handling and severe punishment are detrimental to training this breed. When given tasty rewards, the Thai Ridgeback reacts favorably to positive training techniques and picks things up very rapidly. The time spent in repetitive training sessions will pay off.

The Thai Ridgeback was raised in Thailand, among other places, to pull carts. He is now a good candidate for agility, obedience, and draft trials. Undoubtedly, this breed can make a fantastic watchdog.

Weight

The average Thai Ridgeback is 20 to 22 inches tall at the shoulders and weighs between 51 and 75 pounds.

Temperament/Behavior

The Thai Ridgeback is a breed that is naturally devoted to his family and a vigilant and fearless guardian. He is apprehensive of strangers, so this breed needs to be well-socialized as a puppy and throughout his life to stop violent tendencies. Although this breed may be too much for homes with very young children, the dog is playful and energetic with his family. The Thai Ridgeback will become closest friends with older, active kids.

Typical Health Issues

The health of Thai Ridgebacks is generally good. Hip dysplasia cases are occurring in this breed, which may or may not be related to the environment. Dermoid sinus is also more common in Thai Ridgebacks.

Expected lifespan

The Thai Ridgeback has a lifespan of 10 to 12 years on average.

exercise specifications

Thai Ridgebacks are highly active dogs who were bred for work. While taking long strolls or jogs is nice, this breed also requires space to spread out and run. If there is a dog park close by that he can utilize, he can live in condos or apartment complexes.

The Thai Ridgeback can become extremely destructive and disruptive if not given adequate exercise. The dog will feel frustrated and attempt to verbally express his demand for action, despite not being a barker. If he becomes bored, he will also destroy furniture and gnaw whatever he can get his teeth on. In order to coexist peacefully with this breed, exercise is necessary.
