Rhodesian Ridgebacks are loving, loyal and intelligent. This breed requires positive, rewards-based training, good socialization and consistency. They are protective of their owners and families. Despite their athletic, sometimes imposing exterior, the Ridgeback has a sensitive side and does not do well with harsh training methods. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down to get acquainted with you. Thanks!
