Is Thai Ridgeback Playful?
Considering to adopt a Thai Ridgeback and want to know whether Thai Ridgeback is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, Thai Ridgeback Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we appreciate about dogs is their playfulness. Some breeds are generally more playful than others.
In the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most enjoyable loving. It's significant to keep in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, usually need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should bear in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are infatuated with playing fetch, and there are possibly even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Obviously, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will affect his level of liveliness. Even with these breeds, you should have a veterinarian inspect your dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before starting any exuberant activities.
Top 5 Most Playful Dog Breeds
2. Labrador Retriever - Labs are usually fun-loving and playful demeanors are certainly part of it.
3. Papillon - Pappillion's are small, spunky and smart, this breed needs to be entertained - or she'll find a way to amuse herself.
4. Bearded Collie - These dogs are known for his trademark welcoming, and is normally an exuberant and boisterous breed who will entertain you with his clownish antics.
5. Beagle - This breed is led by his nose, and likes to have plenty of opportunity to use his strong sniffer. That can be as simple as your hiding treats around your house or taking him on long, meandering walks outdoors.
Thai Ridgeback Information
Until recently the Thai Ridgeback was relatively unknown outside of eastern Thailand and is very rare elsewhere. This breed is a good watch, guard and hunting dog, but also makes a nice companion. Tough and active with excellent jumping ability. It is a very active and alert dog but also without socialization can be a bit aloof toward strangers. May be difficult to train. The Thai Ridgeback needs a dominant owner who understands the breed. One who has natural authority, in a firm but calm manner; confident and consistent with the rules placed upon the dog. A Thai’s owner that does not correct the dog at the proper times may find that the dog develops aggressive tendencies. With the right handler it is never too late to curb any unwanted behaviors once the owners learn how to properly treat the dog, along with providing the proper mental and physical exercise.
