Hi everyone, new member here.
I am looking into getting a Basenji and am really excited. I am a college student and am interested in getting a dog to train as a service dog (Canine Good Citizen). I want to get my dog involved in the Pet friend program at the local Children's Hospital, which I think is a great program that I've seen really benefit sick children.
Here are my questions and I'd appreciate the help:
Do you think this is a good service animal for hospital visits with children?
I have seen reports that the Basenji does well in an apartment with regular exercise, but what about the howling when left alone? I will have neighbors and am just worried about loud noises when I'm not there.
Lastly, is a play group essential for the Basenji?
Thanks for the help!
