At what age did your B get his/her yodel


  • Kalani is 11 months old and he hasn't got his yodel yet. At what age did other B owners get theirs?
    He occasionally has a little one at the end of a yawn but nothing sustained as yet. I wait with anticipation because I firmly believe that's when he has fully matured.


  • Anubis is 17 months and she's never yodelled. I don't think they all do…


  • I hope Khalani does at some stage. I just love a B's yodel, it's sooo cool.


  • We have had 3 basenjis, only one ever yodeled and she did it from very young.

  • First Basenji's

    I have been begging my dog to yodel everyday… she is tired of me askin hahah!


  • Oakley came from a litter of talkers, I don't recall him doing it when I'd visit the breeder but he said they all did. Once I got Oakley home at ten weeks he would most always yodel when I'd come home..it's much rarer these days. On occasion he will baroo to tell me of a certain displeasure with my pace of activity (feeding, taking too long to he his leash…) on even rarer occasion I can coerce him into it by making the noises myself.

    I wish he spoke more but am thankful he gives me some


  • There is film footage of Digital yodelling while still with his litermates at his breeder's home. Very, very cute to see a tiny baby puppy take one look at the camera and go "rooo-rooooo"


  • What is the difference between a yodel and baroo, Kaiser does a baroo(I know it's a baroo because it goes barooooooo) for my son, daughter and the cat mostly then sometimes for the husband but I don't think I have had one directed at me yet, hoping and waiting. Lot's of yawning with a noise to finish it but that's it.

    Jolanda and Kaiser


  • Tucker used to back talk to his breeder. She would give him heck for doing something bad and he would sit down, look up at her and give a big baroo. He has outgrown his talking. Becca usually baroos when the hubby comes home. She is much more his dog than mine. Especially if he hasn't seen him for a couple of days. But I definitely don't get baroos every day as much as I would love it! Whenever they do talk we make a big deal out of it with lots of praise and pets.


  • Leki baroo'ed every morning when she saw me - Butu does it at the end of a yawn.


  • Yeah, what is the difference between a yodel and a baroo?


  • Lela has always howled like a little wolf, but her full blown yodel is pretty recent ( she is 2,5 y. now). Usually when she feels left alone or doesn't see us.
    Binti (3,5 y.) howls a bit too, but less than Lela - she screams much more (at cats). She also has a deep humming sound, not unlike a small outboard engine that is not quite running properly. We hear that a lot when preparing her meals.
    We hear from other owners that every individual has a different repertoire.
