In general, the choice of a Thai Ridgeback puppy follows the same general principles as the choice of a puppy of any other breed. However, there are features that are specific to the "Thais."
Can you give the dog enough time? If you work all day, and when you return home, you only have enough energy for a newspaper or series, Thai Ridgeback is unlikely to suit you.
This breed requires constant communication, attention, "Thais" are extremely difficult to tolerate loneliness and terribly miss in the absence of the owner.
In addition, the Thai Ridgeback puppy is an unusually energetic creature. With him you need to constantly engage, communicate, walk and educate. Can you handle it?
Ask yourself other important questions - and get honest answers. Only then can you proceed directly to the selection of a puppy.
If you plan to participate in exhibitions or breeding, remember that there are drawbacks that can block a pet’s path to the ring:
- Aggression or cowardice.
- Lack of ridge (characteristic crest on the back).
- Long wool.
- Wrong bite (any except scissor bite).
It is also good to study the breed standard in order to assess how much the parents of the puppy that has attracted him correspond to it.
