Let's talk about Basenjis!
AKC National Championship today

@jengosmonkey - The Tri in the video that you posted is the sire of our 2019 litter. GCHS AM Ch Astarte's Sir Tristan With Pips At Kazor x AM Ch Klassic's Joy Ride To Tanza-Jamaa. Since both Tristan and Joy are Tri's the pups were all Tri. This was the 2nd all Tri litter that I have had! Love those Tri Basenjis.... You can find pictures on my website, link below

Which dog fits me best?

There is no other dog like a Basenji. Nearly every breed from poodles to pit bulls have retained approximately 8% of wolf genetics. Being an “Ancient” and the “daddy” of most Of today’s domesticated breeds, the Basenji retains approximately 24% of the Wolves genetics. A recent study also determined that of all breeds the Basenji has one of the largest “play drives” (You will find this out quickly) which was key and essential to the domestication of all dogs. The Basenji is truly unique genetically and in in temperament. This dog responds quickly to kindness and a soft touch, NOT yelling and physicality. YOU WILL NOT WIN A BATTLE OF WILLS. Adapt & overcome. LOL, This info will come in handy for the next couple of years. Congratulations, amazing animals.

Introduce yourself and your Basenjis.
Hello from South London, UK!

He’s adorable! I’m currently living in South London and have been researching the breed, with thanks to this forum. I hope to get on a waiting list soon and look forward to joining the owners community and meet up with others soon! Any other useful resources for the breed is greatly welcomed.

Neutering dilemma

Echoing what Sally (and Liz McCargo) has suggested re: not spaying/neutering, at least at this young age.
There's a very insightful and thoroughly informative booklet by the "Puppy Culture" founder on the subject. It is chockful of the latest scientific/medical/genetic research and also takes into consideration the social "pressure" of neutering/spaying one's pet.
(BF should read a few pages if he prefers facts to oft repeated false tales)

Whether to neuter/spay is an important decision and so is its timing should you decide to have the operation.

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

Diggs Crate?

@aalas89 and @suzanne One thing you might really consider doing is keeping a crate in your bedroom for your pup to sleep in if you're not going to allow the pup to sleep in/on the bed with you. If you try to keep your pup in a crate in another room you'll discover that Basenjis are not silent. In fact they can be quite vocal. And loud. And persistent. If you chose not to let them sleep in the room with you it's ok. It might take some time, but they'll eventually train you that being with you is really the only solution.

Lenny and his kidney disease - feeding Royal Canin - terrible!

I had a somewhat similar experience. Joey had a seizure which I correlate to taking Simparica. He looked terrible so took him to the vet when the first seizure happened and he was late Stage 2. Put him on Royal Canin kidney kibble and Hills kidney wet food and 4 years later he has only had 1 more seizure and his kidney values have remained constant. I will believe your homemade version is most likely better if you have the correct proportions. All the best to your Bs! Joey will be 15 in November.

For discussion on breeding and breeders.
Anyone here knows a reputable breeder from Saskatchewan Or Alberta Canada?

Back in the day our first B of hers she was shipped. She was $1200 us plus around $350 CD to ship plus customs around $130. The last 2 I flew in to pick up. I paid $1400 us for our Tika puppy, $600 CD to fly there but no customs. They never asked. I just had to show a vaccination record. Good luck! I hope she has one available. She has lovely dogs!
