A calm Kavi makes for happy humans. @lisaspectorpiano
Looking to calm your puppers down?!?! Kavi’s kindergarten teacher recently told us about Lisa Spector, a talented pianist who also specializes in creating dog-calming music from classical piano pieces. I’m not sure how she does it or the science behind it, but it is TRULY working. (And no this isn’t an ad...we’re just regular, happy (but exhausted) owners of a 3 month old athletic puppy!)
We were able to stream it from @amazonmusic We are curious if this works for anyone else. Let us know!!!
So it’s kinda obvi just as their name states, but the most distinct characteristic of a Thai Ridgeback is the ridge on their back, formed by the hair growing in the opposite direction from the rest of their coat.
There are only 3 dogs in the world with this unique trait — the Thai Ridgeback, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and the Phu Quoc Ridgeback.
And there are up to eight different ridge patterns that can be found on a Thai (pic #4, courtesy of www.thairidgebacks.ru)— needle, saddleback, po leaf, lute, praying hands, arrow, violin, and bowling pin.
Thank you again, dear buyer, for trusting the Belette Le Pink´s stuff for your pursaches. I really hope you enjoy it and I´m glad to see a picture of your towel on my instagram!!!

I’m not sure if this an instinctual aspect of the Thai Ridgeback breed or not, but I sure do notice Kavi’s obsession for burrowing his head, unlike any other of my previous pups. It’s nothing bothersome of course, but just funny and strange more than anything.
TRD friends...got any interesting, unique traits to share about your TRD puppers that we should know about and be on the lookout for as Kavi grows? (We have already started seeing the TRD penchant for high jumping...oh boy can’t wait for that one ♀️)
This dynamic duo...looks like someone got the short end of the deal, and it sure ain’t Kavi.
Actually, Cricket got a bath at the dog wash today and it was a great chance to continue desensitization training with Kavi.
We all know dogs are prone to not liking baths, so we used Cricket’s bath to help Kavi connect positive association (aka, treats, treats, and more treats) to the sights, sounds, and feelings of the shower, water pressure, shower grate, and the hair dryer.
So far, so good, but we will be sure to share what reality looks like when it’s his actual turn for a bath!
As it turns out, Yuki the Kishu Ken puppy out of Cúchulainn x Nami is available for rehoming to screened and approved homes. Preference will be given to homes in the Pacific Northwest who are interested in the potential of co-ownership.
If a home that fits this criteria is not found, she will be available for rehome outright to an approved home provided she is spayed.
Yuki will have a rehoming fee and a prospective owner must agree to and sign my puppy contract to be selected. It is my hope that Yuki go to a co-own home where she can remain part of the North American preservation project if possible, as she is the only intact female carrying some of her sire's ancestors.
Kishu make great outdoorsdogs and active companions, and I would be happy to talk about Yuki's particular strengths and weaknesses to an interested party.
Please DM me or email me at email@example.com for more information. I am happy to answer as many questions as I can on this post, as well, for general information.
