History
The breed was developed in the 1800s by mixing the native "ridged" hunting dogs of Africa with the large Mastiff type dogs of the early European settlers.
Positives
This breed is well known as an excellent family dog and household guardian. If raised with a family, they are excellent around children.
Negatives
Rhodesian Ridgebacks are an independent minded dog, which comes from their hunting heritage. They are not suitable for owners who do not have the physical strength the control them or the time to train them from an early age.
Conclusion: Due to the breed's hunting and guarding heritage, it is important to take this into account when deciding on a puppy. As mentioned, if a pup is brought into a household with children, it should be fine if raised & socialised correctly. However if a dog is already established in a household and children are then brought in, it is important for the well being of all concerned to ensure the dog is correctly socialised around them.
