Re: Aggression to just 1 particular dog, need advice

Many thanks to all who commented! Very much appreciated. Will try to avoid contact for the foreseeable future. Come to think of it - this could be a plot for one of It's Me or The Dog episodes, right? Two bitter 4 legged enemies, ready to rip each other to pieces every time they cross paths, living ...

Second dog - same breed?

Hello! Next spring our Rhodesian Ridgeback boy Ari will be 18 months old, and we'll give some serious thought to getting a second dog. Our questions so far - should it be the same breed or different? Does it matter at all? Should it a least be of similar temperament (for example - Ridgebacks need to...

Re: potty training & obsession help!

Hi there! When we got our puppy ridgeback, for the first month I slept downstairs on the sofa, next to the crate where he slept. We had an alarm clock set to go off every 4 hrs or so, and I would wake up and take him outside, even if he was just sleeping... Then we stopped the alarm clock, but I sti...

Aggression to just 1 particular dog, need advice

Hello! We have a 12 months old unneutered ridgeback. He's been well socialized, with dogs and humans. He enjoys dog park, but also feels comfortable walking a busy street in downtown, with cars going by, lots of people on sidewalks, waiting for green lights at intersections, etc. There are other unn...

Enjoy your new puppy! Our ridgeback Ari just turned 12 months. He is still a puppy, but no longer looks like one. Post some pictures of Samson.

Re: Rhodesian ridgeback

Ari destroys all his toys. Even the ones that were advertised as "indestructible" :D So, we have to keep checking, especially with stuffed toys and toys with squeakers. When a toy is getting close to give in and be ripped apart, we have to take it away, otherwise we'll have a squeaky ridgeback :lol:...

Re: Rhodesian ridgeback

Our ridgeback Ari just turned 12 months. We tried very hard to socialize him with people and other dogs since he was just 3-4 months, and it paid off. He is very sweet, although still a bit protective of what he thinks is his domain… which includes the house he lives in, of course, as well as all ot...
