If you haven't read my most recent post about our new little girl Basenji, take a look here:
Otherwise you probably know the story….
So now we are finding it hard to make her go #2 because of her getting majorly distracted....
When we used to take her out, she would want one of two things:
1. to crawl near my legs and warm up, because she doesn't need/want to go
2. go to the bathroom then resort to #1
#1 hasn't been so prominent any more, now she is getting so distracted by wanting to run anywhere but where she used to use the restroom.
We have her go right outside our front door (we live on the top floor so its not on the foot of our doorstep...) near a few trees...but now she just runs around the corner and keeps trying to drag me to random places to sniff or see random things. I'm wondering what the crazy change in behavior would be from? I mean yes, she is 8 weeks old, and they Basenji's are very "Cat -like" in their demeanor of changing their minds about what they want to do....but I just found it weird that she is so random after only a week of ownership to want to just not use the restroom.
We make sure that we are out there for a good 20 minutes when we know she needs to pee or poo, but sometimes its just inevitable that she's so distracted that she doesn't want to do anything but run around. We are diligent with her potty training and consistent, but this is really starting to be a large obstacle.
