• In my opinion, 6 times is 6 times too many. But glad your dogs are doing well.

  • Yes we all have our opinion but 6 times over 3 dogs in over 20 years I think is a good effort when my dogs had the pleasure of being able to run free. I to have a problem with e-collars and that is anyone can purchase them and the truth is you need to be of a stable mind to use it to get the desired result. I would also not recommend a basenji to most people as they wouldn't have the knowledge to be able to train and handle them so as they could be taken out in public. And anyone with money can purchase one that's why so many come up for re-homing. The funny thing is I could take my dogs anywhere off lead from the local park to a sheep station to the neighbours chicken coup we could sit on the hill 10 metres from feeding kangaroos with him not on a lead and I am sure he would not have minded the 2 tingles he got for the life time of pleasure. Funny people are against e-collars but most likely have a dog that has had its dew claws removed but that is ok because someone else cuts their toes off. Sorry for being so upfront but I hate being judged by people that have no right or knowledge of me and my dogs . When a international renowned dog trainer from the U.K comments on how well my basenji worked against top gun dogs I must be doing something right.

  • Basenji are the best, mite take a little more work at times, but they are the best dogs.

  • Thanks for posting about your training routine and hunting explorations. Please do post some pictures or even videos as I (and no doubt many others are) am very interested in how they work.

  • Will do but not sure on how to post pics and videos . My knew pup is doing well and is copying the Weimaraner in most things . Although he has a strong interest in birds than fur scent but at 12 weeks I will just let things develope as nature intended..

  • The easiest way to post pictures and videos is to put them on a site like Photobucket and hotlink them here. Hope to see some of your pup! 🙂

  • How do I use photo bucket as I have some pics of him in the bush and their first tracking job a sambar hind

  • Photobucket is a free site where you can upload your pictures. Once you do that, you can copy and past the image link here. Would love to see the pictures!

  • I hope you can see what he looks like Les ( basenji) is 3 months old and his big brother is Mac (Weimaraner) is 6 months old. As you can see Les just loves Mac and copy's him which makes my training a hell of a lot easier. He sit's well recalls to hand signal and will stay for me until 20 metres at present. I don't push him with anything I just let him do things at his pace . Having Mac for him to copy is my biggest asset. As you can see after a 30 yd track Mac was hesitant to get close to the deer but Les shows no fear , the pic was taken 30 seconds after we fond the hind as then I spent the next 3 minutes praising the pups.and start butchering. I will continue taking him up the bush every Saturday and take every deer they put up so as they learn what it is all about . So far they have given me great pleasure watching them learn to do what their ancestors did.

  • Great pics - he's a brave boy. Love it when he sleeps on his big brother.
    Keep posting!

  • Very interesting. Thanks for posting. He's a good looking boy. Not too confident yet, but I'm sure that will come.

  • Yes my pups doing well , to date I have taken 3 deer off my boys and having trouble posting pics. Les is developing into a nice dog so much so that I got feedback for the dog groomer down the road who just happens to be a credited show judge that he is the best basenji she has seem . This put the lady she told nose out of joint as her dogs who were being groomed at the time both have Australian titles. He has impressed all that have seem him in the field as he works just like my Wei . They are truly two peas in a pod . The other day I introduced my Wei to water not to be outdone little Les followed him in swam the river and showed that he is a better swimmer than the Wei . I just may have one hell of a dog on my hands.
