Many more here have much more expertise than me, but I'll share what I do know. As elbrant stated your little girl will be bounding over it in no time.
Also, my basenji hated being separated from his pack and would become unhappy and destructive when sequestered. If I put him in the backyard by himself, he would jump up on the cooler and scratch at the kitchen window destroying the window screen in the process. Guess how I learned about dog resistant screens? If I put him in a room by himself he would whine and scratch at the door and worse. But, sometimes sequestering him was absolutely necessary. So what worked best for us was to put him in a room as far from the commotion as possible; feed him some treats and spend a few minutes to settle him down; then push a chair or ottoman close to a window sill, but make certain to open the curtains or blinds so he/she can clearly see to the outside. If you don't open them your basenji will eat your house.
I imagine a puppy will be a fair bit more of a challenge in terms of both patience and property. Keep your sense of humor handy and be ready to pivot quickly. In other words, be ready to implement multiple solutions one after another until your basenji trains you which is the correct one.
