Show Off Your Dog
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…).
I would never use a harness...and I do not recommend its use for any pups that I place, especially on a young dog of any breed... it restricts their movement and can lead (IMO) to problems later on as they need to adjust their strides to compensate for restrictive front end movement... Especially for any dog that might be a show dog and a pet... (as my are).... Try a head harness that works like with horses...
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 !
You can also FREEZE the kong. Makes it last much longer.
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 Meetups & Events
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.

Research isn't over until you've read my Put-Off and the other articles about life with a Basenji while not doing the Breed a disservice !
Details are in the signature block - and talk to Bushwacker. She takes care of temperament and quality !
