How do Ridgebacks interact with children?

Ridgebacks who have been well-socialised when young tend to be careful and protective of children (though play can get rough with older kids). Well-socialised Ridgebacks seem to innately know that babies are fragile.

However, we strongly recommend any time children are with Ridgebacks of any age, they are supervised by an adult, at least until the children are at least school-aged and sensible.
