Females 20-22 inches (51-56)
51-75 pounds (23-34 kg.)
Temperament of the Breed
This alert, fearless, fierce and
intelligent breed is a good watch, guard and hunting
dog, but also makes a nice, loyal and devoted companion.
This breed does best in a home with older considerate
children. They do not get along well with other
dogs or other household pets they have not been
raised with. They are exceedingly protective of
their family and will display aggression toward
anything or anyone they perceive to be a threat.
Thai Ridgebacks do not do well if left alone for
extended periods of time.
How active is the breed?
The active and athletic Thai Ridgeback
thrives on exercise and stimulation, and should
be taken on daily long walks. It is extremely important
that this breed does not become bored, as they will
be highly destructive. They benefit from going on
securely leashed walks, enjoy all family activities
Thai Ridgebacks require formal
obedience training as well as intense and extensive
socialization. They are generally quick to learn,
obedient, and eager to please their master. They
are easy to housebreak. Training must be done with
love, respect, firmness, fairness, consistency,
and patience. This breed excels in agility.
Suitable for apartment
Thai Ridgebacks will do okay in
an apartment if sufficiently exercised. However,
the Thai Ridgeback does best with a large yard where
there is ample room to romp and run. It is crucial
that yards be safe, secure, and have a very high
fence. They prefer warm climates and cannot withstand
the cold due to the texture of their coat.
The Thai Ridgeback sheds little
and does not need a lot of grooming. An occasional
combing and brushing to remove the dead hair will
do. Bathing should be done only when necessary.
Special attention should be given to the eyes, ears,
A very healthy and robust breed,
although they may be prone to hip dysplasia, entropion
and dermoid sinus.
