  Breed standards may change over time. 
Both appearance standards and standards   regarding breed character or working 
qualities may change. The works of art   of the early years depict the most typical 
representatives of the breeds of that time.   Comparing with the modern appearance of 
the breed, you will be able to assess   how much the breed has changed over time.

Also 
of interest are archival photographs of specific   breeds, which you can find on the Internet in 
specialized forums about the breed.
  Historical reference of the 
breed and subgroup.
  Rhodesian Ridgeback A breed of hunting dog bred 
from native species. They were very popular   with African Boers as assistants in hunting 
elephants, buffaloes and rhinos. Courageous,   hardy, ferocious on the hunt, subject to proper 
training, they are calm, good-natured, loyal,   and can be excellent companions for 
the inhabitants of the countryside.   They love to accompany their 
owner on bike rides.
  The Khoi people who lived in the Cape when 
the Dutch began trading with the area in   the mid-17th century had a semi-wild hunting dog 
that Europeans described as completely fearless   and ferocious when acting as a guard dog. This 
dog was about 46 centimeters tall at the withers,   with a lean but muscular build. The ears were 
described as erect but were later described   as hanging due to crossbreeding with European 
dogs, but the most distinguishing feature was   the length of the hair, often growing backwards 
along the back. For 53 years after the first   Dutch settlements in South Africa, Europeans 
used these local dogs themselves.
  By the 1860s, European colonists also imported 
many predominantly European dog breeds into this   area of ​​Africa, including such devoted hunting 
dogs as Great Danes, bloodhounds, greyhounds,   and terriers.

The Cuban Dogo, an extinct breed 
used for dog fighting and guarding, was also   prominently featured in the composition of the 
early Ridgeback. Genetic analysis shows that the   Ridgeback and the Great Dane fall into the same 
genetic group, implying a major contribution of   the Great Dane. These breeds were crossed with 
local African dogs, including those of the   Khoi people, resulting in the Boer hunting dog, 
collectively called the Burhond, which is the main   predecessor of the modern Rhodesian Ridgeback. 
Genome sequencing of ancient dogs shows
  The original breed standard was developed in 
1922 by Barnes. In 1927, the Barnes Standard   was approved by the South African Kennel Union. 
Outside the subcontinent and internationally,   the first Rhodesian Ridgeback in the UK was 
shown by Mrs. Edward Foljambé in 1928. In 1950,   Mr. and Mrs. William Brien of Arizona brought six 
carefully selected Ridgebacks from South Africa to   the United States. He, his wife, and Margaret 
Lowthian of California began the process of   accepting the breed by the American Kennel Club. 
Similarly, the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great   Britain was founded at Crufts in 1952 to promote 
the breed throughout the United Kingdom.

In 1954,   the first certificates were awarded to dogs 
entered as Rhodesian Ridgeback in competitions   in the United Kingdom, followed by recognition 
by the Kennel Club of Great Britain,
  Rhodesian Ridgeback is very attached to 
the human family in which he lives.
  Some breeds are strongly attached to one person, 
others to all members of the human family,   others may have a friendly attitude towards 
all people in general, and the fourth may   not have close ties even with the owner.
Rhodesian Ridgeback is attached to all members   of the human family in which he lives.
Rhodesian Ridgebacks are known to be   loyal and intelligent. They are 
usually somewhat shy of strangers.   this should not be confused with aggression, a 
Rhodesian Ridgeback with a good temperament will   not attack a stranger for no reason.

They require 
consistent training and proper socialization.
  The Rhodesian Ridgeback treats strangers with 
suspicion, sometimes even aggressively.

  The attitude of any dog ​​to strangers strongly 
depends on the breed of the pet, but even more   strongly this attitude depends on the upbringing 
and socialization of a particular individual,   while socialization in the early puppyhood of a 
pet is especially important in this regard.
  At the same time with children, 
Rhodesian Ridgeback gets along very well.   However, regardless of the dog's 
friendly attitude towards children,   a dog of any breed should not be 
left alone with small children.
  Some breeds of dogs are more relaxed about 
the behavior of young children and may not   pay attention to some antics of children, however, 
it should be understood that dogs of all breeds,   no matter how friendly they are, should be 
with children only under the supervision of   the owner or adults, since in addition to the 
qualities of the breed in relation to children,   there are also the individual characteristics 
of each dog, its upbringing and previous   experience in communicating with children. 
Even these relationships are largely influenced   by the behavior of children.
But the Rhodesian Ridgeback gets   along well with other dogs.

Rarely 
shows aggression towards them.
  Different breeds of dogs treat their own kind 
differently, some dogs will play and interact   in every possible way with dogs they meet or 
live with, other breeds may try to dominate or   even attack similar four-legged ones. At the same 
time, the relationship between dogs can be very   different from how a dog will react to people. The 
behavior of a dog in relation to other dogs and   people depends not only on the breed, but also on 
the socialization of a particular individual.
  Communication Rhodesian Ridgeback with 
small pets such as hamsters, domestic rats,   squirrels, chinchillas and other rodents 
is best limited.

Cats can get along.
  The Rhodesian Ridgeback is not 
a good fit for inexperienced   dog owners or first-time dog owners.
Some dog breeds are easier to keep and train,   while others are more independent and even 
assertive and require an experienced owner.
  This breed needs an experienced owner to prevent 
dominance and overprotection problems.
  Rhodesian Ridgeback can be kept in an 
apartment, but a country house is much   more preferable for keeping this breed.
It should be borne in mind that they do   not tolerate loneliness and cannot 
be left alone for a long time.
  The quality and quantity of wool allows the 
Rhodesian Ridgeback to comfortably endure   cold and short-term heat.
Learning and training.
  All dogs can be trained and trained, but some 
breeds remember and execute commands faster   and more readily than other breeds. Different 
breeds need a different approach to training   and education. Some breeds may appear to be 
poorly trainable or even stupid, however,   in most cases, a dog breed's trainability 
is due to the stubborn or independent nature   of the dog breed or individual.

This is 
exactly the case of Rhodesian Ridgeback,   they are smart enough to understand what is 
wanted from them but they are just as stubborn.   Also of great importance in the trainability 
of a dog is the role of what training methods   the trainer uses for a particular breed.
In the book The Intelligence of Dogs, published in   1994 and written by University of British Columbia 
Vancouver psychology professor Stanley Coren,   the Rhodesian Ridgeback is ranked 53 out of 80 
in terms of learning ability. In this regard, the   breed stands next to such breeds as the Whippet, 
Sharpei, Welsh Terrier and Irish Terrier.
  In Professor Stanley Coren's book, Rhodesian 
Ridgeback is located in the group:
  Dogs with average learning abilities.
Mastering a new team from 25 to 40 repetitions.
  Execution of the command from the first 
time in 50 percent of cases and above.
  The disadvantage of this scale of learning 
ability, by the author's own admission,   is its strong dependence on the ability to 
obedience and command execution, for example,   for working or service dogs, and its weak 
connection with understanding and creativity,   for example, hunting dogs.

As a result, some 
breeds rank lower on the list because of their   stubborn or independent nature, which does not 
make them weakly intelligent or untrainable.
  Tendency to bark.
Among other things,   breeds differ in the level of noise, or 
rather, in the frequency of their barking.   Some breeds can bark all the time without stopping 
and never get tired of barking at every stranger   or strange dog that passes by your house or by 
herself, other breeds bark only on business, when   it is necessary in her opinion, and still others 
can only give a voice in exceptional cases.
  Rhodesian Ridgeback can be attributed to the 
third group described above. This breed is   absolutely not prone to unreasonable barking.
The desire to gnaw these dogs also do not stand   out among others. The desire to gnaw and taste 
everything is common to puppies of all breeds,   but as adults, different breeds have varying 
degrees of propensity to explore the world   with their teeth. Rhodesian Ridgeback 
is not prone to such pranks.
  Activity and energy level.
According to the level of charge and activity,   breeds can also be divided into active and calm 
or even lazy.

An active dog will require constant   walks, training and frequent mental stimulation 
from you. Calm and less energetic dogs will be   happy with short walks around the house and will 
gladly share your desire to lie on the couch at   home. This feature should be taken into account 
when choosing a pet, since the unfulfilled needs   of an active animal will be realized at home on 
the things and objects of your home. The amount of   energy in the dog also determines with what desire 
and for how long the dog will play games with you   or with your child under your supervision.
While extremely athletic and sometimes imposing,   Rhodesian Ridgebacks do have a sensitivity to 
handling. Francis Barnes, who wrote the first   standard in 1922, recognized that abuse should 
never be used on these dogs, especially at a   young age. From such treatment they decompose. The 
Rhodesian Ridgeback accepts corrections as long as   they are fair and justified and as long as they 
come from someone the dog knows and trusts.
  In addition, many breeds have an innate desire 
to chase moving objects and animals, the degree   of this desire may vary from breed to breed.

If 
this innate instinct is highly developed in a dog,   you need to carefully monitor the pet during a 
walk and keep it on a leash, since any moving   object can provoke the dog to chase, even if it 
is a car that can harm the animal, at such moments   the dog can disobey the call of the owner and 
switch all your attention to the moving target.   In addition, such breeds pose an additional 
danger to small domestic animals and birds.
  The Rhodesian Ridgeback has this instinct 
highly developed and should be kept in   mind when walking with your pet.
Passion for vagrancy and love of freedom.
  Some breeds have a tendency to cover long 
distances on their fours, for which they were   bred, so these dogs, following their instinct, 
will not miss the opportunity to escape from you   and run a couple of kilometers, despite your 
calls. Sled dogs, hounds and bloodhounds are   mainly inclined to such walks.

Rhodesian Ridgeback 
has a tendency to run away from the owner on a   walk if he smells an interesting smell.
Tendency to drool.

  The amount of saliva produced depends 
on the characteristics of the breed.   Some breeds salivate so much that they can leave 
marks on the carpet, on the sofa, on the floor   and on you, other breeds also salivate, 
but this happens in much less quantities.
  Fortunately Rhodesian Ridgeback 
produces very little saliva.
  But the amount of hair that the 
Rhodesian Ridgeback leaves behind   is about the same as most dogs.
The amount of dog hair in your home and   on your clothes depends a lot on what breed 
you choose, some breeds shed all year round,   others only seasonally, others hardly 
shed. This characteristic of the breed   can be important depending on where you plan 
to keep the pet, whether members of your family   are allergic to animal hair, and how 
important it is to you in general.
  Dog care.
Some breeds may   require a lot of grooming and attention due to 
coat characteristics, muzzle shape, habitat,   or the general health of the breed.

Rhodesian 
Ridgeback in this regard is a fairly average   dog in terms of complexity of care, it does 
not require a lot of time for itself.
  General health of the breed 
on a 10-point scale.
  The general health of dogs of this breed 
and the possibility of the appearance of   genetic diseases in them can be assessed 
on a ten-point scale of 9 points, that is,   they are quite healthy dogs with a minimum 
number of genetically predisposed diseases.
  Diseases known to affect this breed are hip 
dysplasia and dermoid sinus. The Rhodesian   Ridgeback is the sixth most thyroid-prone breed 
listed by the Animal Orthopedic Foundation.   In 2014, a study of the breed in the UK found an 
average lifespan of 11 years..
