Summary of Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppies and Dogs

Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies and dogs are dignified and pleasant. This dog has a calm, gentle and obedient temperament. Although it is a ferocious hunter, it is quite the opposite with its family. This breed is trainable and correct training will ensure that it behaves well with children, particularly older children, as this is a large dog that likes to play and may unintentionally knock smaller children over. Puppies and dogs are a little reserved around strangers and a little curious of them, so it's important to socialize them heavily from a young age to avoid this. This is a very strong and powerful dog so it is not really suited to an inexperienced handler. This dog is far better suited to an owner who will provide constant firm but calm training and has the time to attend to its needs and care for it properly. This breed is very active and requires a lot of daily exercise and would be particularly suited to a jogger.
