I have been on the forum for a little while and I am going to be getting my new basenji in about two weeks. As this is the first time I have bought a dog and I am trying to do it without my parents help (the usual dog owner/purchasers) I have a few questions that I would like answered.
How much should you feed a 5.5 month old and how often/when?
The breeder said to refrain from collars because they can get cought on cabinets and suc so to only use it when going out for walks and the like. Is this true?
He also said that Bs can get agressive towards unknown people and will atck intruders if the owner isn't there. I haven't heard that yet and didn't know if that was true either.
Does anyone know of a good trainer/training classes in south west denver, CO?
When I met with the dog and owner, I brought my parents dog, and the B was sniffing at my parents mutt and then nipped at his leg and got him to bark (very unusual). How common is this and ld I be worried,? The two dogs won't be together much and will always be attended anyway.
For all of you wanting to see, here is a pic of us, but when I get the B, I will take more pics of him for you all to see.
I also wanted to know if there should be a bill of sale or something.
