Hi all, I have trained my JRT's since I got them single handedly, and I think once my mother talks to people with basenjis at the windsor championship show she will be persuaded enough (or she will not at all, it'll go one way or the other).
So I want to make sure that when I get my puppy that I am fully prepared with what I should do and when.
Also, thought about taking her to http://www.puppyschool.co.uk/ , as well as training at home and on short walks. does this seem like a good idea?
Also, what age would you think I should introduce my JRT's to the Basenji? Should the B be in the crate when they meet her, so they can get her scent?
The male JRT is a bit funny with some other dogs, but some he's perfectly fine with, once he's known them for awhile. He's been neutered for a few years. The other dog (bitch) is fine with other dogs. If Rasco growls at the puppy do you reckon it'll just eh an alpha thing, though he likes females more than males.
Do you think it'd help if I trained/fed them together?
Also, we may be getting chickens -my mother's idea, though I'm not opposed to it and think this would strengthen my case for a puppy, as in I get a puppy as I would help out with the chickens and clearing the other half of our garden out for the chickens.
