• This is Meeko my Tri-colored Basenji born August 2009. He came from Kara Leerhoff. He is a great dog, very cuddly, loves people and other dogs. He easily was house broken with only 5 accidents inside the house. However, he does not like to walk on the leash he pulls and pulls even though he has been to obedience training. Hopefully I will be able to find some tips on here.

    Respectfully,

    Thomas


  • cute puppy!


  • Hi Thomas and Meeko! Welcome to the forum - glad to have you here. What kind of a collar are you using to walk Meeko? I use a wider martingale (greyhound style) and it works well. Training has to be consistent, though. I know others here will give you lots more advice.

    Cute Boy, don't know Kara Leerhoff? Is there a kennel name that is used? Pedigree? Many of us are related by our Basenjis


  • Thomas, I use loose leash walking training because pulling on a leash is one of my pet peeves. I have trained feral dogs to walk on a leash without pulling in only a few days, so trust me it works.
