Good way to distract a basenji…

Take a old sock and tie up one of your basenji's favorite treats and see how long it takes to get the treat....
About 8 minutes for my 'B' lol but it did get him to stop obsessing on the family of rabbits that just fond a home in the bushes in front of my building.

Anyone have any other good ways to distract a basenji.......

For my boy, hiding his favourite toy and then asking him to look for it will keep him busy for awhile. Or sometimes we play "hide & seek". I'm always the one who hides! 🙂

Nina Otteson toys and their wobble kong full of treats and kibble!

That funny, I hide treats in my place and my 'B' Max always finds them, but there is also one he never eats. The one I put on top of the umbrella I keep behind my door. He just sits and stares at it. I think because that umbrella fell on him when he was a pup or basenjis really do dislike rain ha
I give him the treat and he's happier then ever and we end up going on a good walk. Smart dogs, good tip. I will try your hide & seek thing…

Still best tip if you have a basenji… Go for a walk together....
