Let's talk about Basenjis!
Advice on Basenjis

An apartment would not be a problem if you give your B plenty of exercise and nose time. Also, the office would be great, but do realise that dogs need a lot of sleep, not only puppies. Our 2 sisters (7 and 6) sleep all night and most of the day. So your B would need a quiet space in the office to retreat and sleep. Agree with eeeefarm: puppy time is extra intensive, but so much fun. Try to be with your B as much as possible. Enjoy!

Need help with our basenji mix!!

Some things cannot be fixed. I urge you to get a qualified behaviorist (veterinary) to evaluate him. If he is truly unstable, rehoming him is not fair to him or the new home.

Posesivo Basenji attacking Rott pup she grew up with

@nikikob - Wish you luck, but I fear to say that things are going to go badly. When bitches fight, 99.9% of the time you will never get them back together and while it might work for a while, when the "mood" hits... the fights become worse and worse.

Post here tips on raising young Basenji.

Crate training Chupy

@Lindsey that is great news, if leaving the crate door open is working, don't change it for a bit... are you covering the crate? Make it more like a dark den? and you can try to start, just closing the door part way. Are you feeding him in his crate? Another way to get them to adjust to having the door closed....

Any Basenjis in Vancouver or Victoria? (Or in-between?)

Re: [Are there any basenji meeting groups in the Vancouver](Canada area?)

Hi all!
I'm a newbie here, and am looking into getting a Basenji puppy sometime this year or early next. However, I've never met a Basenji in 'real-life', and I would love to get together with someone who does or join a meetup before making a definite commitment. Currently I'm living on campus at UBC in Vancouver, but home for me is in the Victoria, BC area.

fly high my sweet boy


So sorry for your loss, I lost my first buddy four years ago in March and I still miss him. I got a new buddy a month after he died despite reservations over whether it was too soon\the right thing to do. So glad I did, just as my first wriggled his basenji way into our hearts, my new buddy has done the same. I still miss my first and always will, but another basenji knows just how to help you heal, the really are a special breed.
