This is an excellent idea!
Do not laugh at me, but I had this dream for many years, to come with my dog to travel, hiking in Nepal. Then to an Island in Thailand for few months I first wanted to go with my kid, but, unfortunately, I am still single, so I shifted my dream to a dog.
I wonder if I can bring Basenji with me, after let say, a year of training with a long line, training him to come back when I call.
What do you think?
A dog off leash traveling, especially to other countries, mountains etc is a recipe for disaster. If something spooked the dog, or it went into hunt mode, how will you get it back? Where are the resources (people, family, rescues) to help put out food, traps, whatever? How long can you extend your stay. Even with a leash, you risk a fall or something, but at least you have more control.
But why not take a relatives child or children? Or find a hiking companion?
