Rhodesian Ridgeback: 5 reasons you want this dog!

  • Mar 12, 2010

  1. Ridgebacks are incredibly intelligent. Stubborn and independent, yes, but super smart. If you're fair and consistent and kind, they are very trainable.
  2. They do shed, but not much! Their fur is very tight and short and reddish-golden, and when it falls off it looks like little gold eyelashes. Ridgebacks are very easy to groom.
  3. They don't need many baths. Which is good, because most (not all) Ridgebacks hate water! Bathe your Ridgeback once a season, give her a chunk of white cheddar cheese after (it helps with any dryness in her skin) and she'll be clean and good smelling for 3 more months.
  4. Ridgebacks are incredible companions. They fall deeply in love with one person and become that person's familiar, going everywhere with you.  But they have the capacity to love the whole family too. They're happiest curled on the warm couch with their family.
  5. They need to RUN and exercise, but the good news is they only need about an hour of it a day. The rest of the day, just give a Ridgeback a cozy, warm spot and he will sleep like there's no tomorrow.

I've seen these pooches before, but never knew their name.  What a mouthful! :P  Is that your Ridgeback in the photos?  How old is he or she?  Sounds like a great pet!  Thanks for sharing, Megan :)
