I guess that those having a Basenji in an apartment or living in busy neighbourhoods might have problems with next-door neighbours. That yodelling of a Basenji can become quite a nuisance to your neighbours if you don't train him not to use it whenever it likes. Is basenji non-yodelling inherited from parents or a behaviour training matter? Some dogs can be trained to control their barking. Is it the same with basenji yodelling?
Yodelling usually isn't a problem. Howling can be, as can screaming! Basenjis are quiet dogs, but if they are upset they can certainly make a lot of noise, and sometimes people don't even realize it is a dog doing all that screaming! But a content Basenji is generally pretty quiet.
@eaglet A yodelling Basenji is a joy, not a nuisance - and the number of times, the duration of each, in a day is likely to be so minimal, I wouldn't worry. I get yodels first thing in the morning and when I am preparing food - that is when the 'great conversations' take place.
The thing which REALLY hurts the neighbours, even in a tiny rural village like this, is the Basenji habit of imitating a timber wolf at two in the morning when he (or she) wants sex !!!
When we had the 8-pack, the three boys were isolated in a kennel (actually a garden shed with lights, heat, bed boxes and a dog-door into the orchard) at the bottom of the garden while the 5 ladies were in season.
I installed a nursery alarm system so I could share the village's pain.
You would be incredibly lucky to have a Basenji yodel often enough to become a nuisance.
