Yep. It grows in the opposite direction. It also has a crown at the top. We do some Lure Coursing. You dont have to teach them this. It is instictal. They go out and chase this fake rabbit all over the field. They love it. You can go on AKC and find one near you. They do fun runs were you can just sign up your dog to try it. Its fun to watch. What state are you in?

I have a 1 and a half old female ridgeback, a 9 month old female ridgeback, and a 6 year old male lab. I have pictures only in print. My digital camera bit the dust.

I paid $650 for the older ridgeback $450 for the younger. They are both show quality dogs. Perfect ridge with no white on them. You can get them cheaper for pet quality but I really wanted nice ridges. The difference is about $100.

How do the RR's interact with your lab?

What's the best thing that you like about them? Is there anything that you don't like about them?

Thats how I was the first time I saw a RR. I was so amazed and the owner was explaining how thats how the people in africa could tell the difference between their dogs and wild dogs by the ridge on their back, or something like that.

Did you get them from the breeder you posted? $450 is in my price range because since I am only 16 I don't have a lot of spending money but I can come up with that in a couple of months, maybe by summer.

They get along great. The best thing I like about them is that they are very clever in a weird way. Puma, my older female, will go to the back door when we are eating, for me to let her out. When I get there she runs and gets the plate off my food. This breed is master manipulaters. They do stuff like this to manipulate whole prides of lion. The thing I hate is, that they can be hard to train. They are not food driven dogs like my lab. Dont let that discourage you though. Its not like potty training or stuff like that. It is counter surfing. If you are the primary care giver of the dog, they will attach to you and not listen to your husband.

I read that they're not easily trainable and often ignore their owners, is that true?

Yes, they usually listen to that one person. But not anybody else.
