We adopted a basenji a two months or so ago after our first basenji died just a couple of days after Christmas. We just love the little guy…but he will run after our little grandchildren & bite them. He's never drawn blood...but it's causing some real problems for us.
My son has been suggesting a shock collar. I am pretty resistant to that idea but I am willing to try it if it would keep him from biting the kids.
Has anyone had a dog (not a puppy) exhibit this type of behavior and how did you correct it? I've watched the "Training Your Adopted Dog" DVD and the problem is not biting my husband or me so it's a difficult problem to fix.
I'd really appreciate any help or suggestions. We really love him and I'd hate to give him up...but this behavior is not acceptable.
