Usefulness of Wisdom DNA test for Basenjis

@ngbass said in Usefulness of Wisdom DNA test for Basenjis:

no traces of Basenji

Surprise!! I have to admit, I was certain she had "B" in her. Regardless, she is a pretty princess and we know she's loved. If you ever have any questions about this little impersonator, feel free to ask.

Post pictures and videos of your Basenji.
Happy Birthday!🎈

The extra arm is from her human SISTER (she didn’t want to be in the photo). They grew up together - they’ve been together since her human sister was 6 years old (she’s now 20). And YES - she is smart - smarter than a “fifth grader”! Knows all the tricks and has definitely some saved up for later. It’s all about HER! She is QUEEN BEE of our household! and we cater to her!️

Here is the place to discuss training your Basenji (housebreaking, lure coursing, agility…).

Korben biting our feet and I don't know how to stop him.

@lory-h - Have you spoken to his breeder? And agree with eeeefarm about diverting him before he goes for your feet... and reward for not indulging in feet biting... seems that he thinks this is a game for him. Work his mind, not just his body

Why do they do that?
Couch scuffing

I don't have a leather couch - I have four large leather armchairs. Dogs over the years have always curled up in them (often disputing ownership with me !). Blankets which can easily be whipped off when we have visitors, keep muddy paws at bay.

But I am bigger then they are and its MY house. I do not, and never have, tolerated distructiveness and my Basenjis know and learn to respect that !

Pacific Northwest Breeders

We got our wonderful basenji who just turned 1 in Dec from Khanis basenjis in SE Portland. She does allow you to go visit and see the dogs and ask any questions. Last year we got to play with about 15 puppies it was great
She does show her dogs so her reply may not always be quick

Basenji National event in Arizona

@shermanfive said in Basenji National event in Arizona:

I am looking at attending the event being held in Tuscon Arizona Nov 2019.
As a soon to be Basenji owner is this an event for observers ? Is there a cost? If I can only attend 2 days what are the "must see" events

What day is the November event exactly? To be honest, it looks very well.

Declan the Basenji

@mrscastro said in Declan the Basenji:

I will not participate in any drama.

That would make you a wise woman! And with her (Heather) it does seem to be all about the drama. My personal take involves many concerns which depend on things that I can not be certain of (at this moment).

First, for the dog's welfare:

Is "Declan" alive, sick, and still in her care? If so, is the dog getting proper medical care by a qualified and accredited Veteranarian? Or, is Heather playing nursemaid and administering her own special drug cocktail(s)?

Second, regarding Heather's online persona:

How much of this is true v. how much of this is "not quite accurate"? Is Heather using this dog as a way to scam people out of money? Is Heather "healthy" by society's standards, or is this a subconsious cry for help?

So, yes.... I guess I am involved in that:

I want to know that this dog is not in danger, and I want to be reasonably sure that Heather is "ok", and If she is running a scam, I want to make sure the right people know what she's up to.

Disclaimer: I do not know Heather. But if I saw someone in my 'hometown' doing these things and acting this way, I'd be calling local "animal welfare" officials to have them check into it. If that's not the case, then I'll back off.
