People / Families that have recently adopted their first Basenji. Or people who can provide advice and direction for the new basenji parents
Thank you so much! We've been doing the "tree" method where we stay in place and consequentially have our arm stick out so I'll try stepping on the leash instead and see how that goes!
My four month old pup is going crazy every time we take her on a walk, she wants to sniff everything and pulls on the leash when people, dogs, and cars go by. I know some or most of this has to do with her being young and being an energetic basenji but if anyone has any tips on making her a little more calm and focused on walks I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you so much!! I really appreciate the advice
I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with a pup that gets very attached to them? I love my little girl so much but I worry that when life goes back to normal and I go to work she'll get sad that I'm gone! She whimpers when I go to the shower or when I sit in a room alone and close the door. Does anyone have any tips on how to handle this? I don't want my little girl to get depressed when I have to go back to my 9-5! It may be worth mentioning that my boyfriend works from home so someone is home at all times of the day to play with her and give her attention.
What a handsome boy! Best of luck with his health!
My pup is a little over 4 months herself and she has the same struggle! Best suggestion I can make is if you have a deck or something similar that he can comfortable walk under to make that a new potty spot so there's less rain on him, that and a rain coat helps a bit too! Good luck!
