Hello, I am the proud owner of my first basenji. She is 10 weeks old and her name is Zoey.
I am using the crate training method to house break her. I have successfully used it in the past with other breeds of dogs and understand how it works. My problem is my family.
I work nights, 7pm to 7am three nights/week. Zoey has only had one accident in the house while I've been home, however, she's had a few while I'm at work because neither my children or my husband watch her nearly as closely as I do. I don't have any carpet in my house so I'm not really worried about her ruining anything. I'm just worried that everytime they don't catch her it's a huge set back in her training.
I feel like the hours I'm at work are totally out of my controll. How much of a set back do you think each accident is?
