I saw it at www.Basenji.co.uk that would be cool to own but not sure what I would actually do with it beside put photos of my dog on it so maybe not lol, maybe if I was a breeder it would be useful.

Exactly why I wanted a spayed little girl! I don't have anywhere near the amount of breeding knowledge to do justice to these amazing lines!! Very happy to just enjoy my girl's personality and treasure her presence...
was it Caldwell tx? We just adopted a 8month old pup from Craigs list Right in MY neighborhood. she is super sweet But I had a chocolate lab and suspected puppy mill Olio acres in Iowa and took her whole life of me searching and found several news Paper articles How they were busted at least 3 times with box truck full of different breed pups my hunch was right but she was the best dog ever. so we adopted (kinda more rescued from life in small crate) but she has been reaslly good but have that hunch feeling again and decided to go through all her paper work looked up breeder on FB could not locate so did google search added word Bazenji and found this forum first post I read was about suspected puppymill/byb in Caldwell TX if you want to compare note be more than happy, never ever seen sale agreement health guarantee with just the name Joey as Sire i forgot dam and Paper work is at home. no reg # now in order to get AKC papers your dogs have to both be akc and have reg#s on pedagree didnt get a pedagree neither did the people who bought her had her shipped here.
Basenji Health Issues & Questions
Has anyone ever had to deal with hyperthyroidism in their Basenji rather than the hypothyroidism ?
Here is the place to discuss training your Basenji (housebreaking, lure coursing, agility…).
It's a slow process, be patient and consistent with her. We adopted Bolt 6 years ago, he's 12 y/o and 3/4 Africain. We don't know his history, but at some point he got into a dog fight. He has the scars to prove it. When we walk, there are certain dogs that will trigger a violent reaction from him. Over the years I've gotten very good at reading other people, and how they walk their dogs, plus reading their dog's body language. A high straight up tail tightly wagging will send him off the rails. I've worked extensively with him to the point that he is manageable when he sees other dogs. I usually make him sit, or give as wide a distance as I can allow. BUT, he is a biter, so I'm extremely cautious when I'm around other people. All bets are off if that other dog is not leashed!! It does get better, and yes you can teach an older dog new behaviors, I certainly did.

Basenjis' function in the wild is to go after small game. I expect mine to hunt (and kill if they catch them) squirrels and rabbits. Other dogs are a no-no ! Mine know I do not tolerate aggression to other dogs, regardless of their size.
We are just back from a long walk in the forest where my two ran free and hunted (abortively, nothing caught) with a Cocker Spaniel. We met and chatted with lots of other dogs of all shapes and sizes and their owners . Humans stopped to chat, dogs did the normal meet, greet and sniff and there was not a single cross word.
The only trainer mine have ever had is their own pack alpha - ME !
Do not let aggressive behaviour take hold. Nip it in the bud NOW.
Basenji Puppy Pen
Post here tips on raising young Basenji.
Crate for sleeping at night should always be in the bedroom with their people. Should be close to the bed. I use wire crates and typically have more than one Basenji so the crates are all next to each other, but still in the room we sleep in. If an only Basenji should be next to your bed that that your pup knows where you are and you can dangle your fingers in the crate to assure them you are there. And cover the crate to make it more den like. Agree with a "crate buddy" stuffed big toy... and this crate buddy should only be used in the crate at night. I have never had any of my Basenjis sleep in any other room other then the one I sleep in. I also agree that in a car any dog should be confined in a crate, period.
