Introduction- April K and Malcolm and Ivy Basenji Dogs

Hi! My name is April. I have two Basenjis, Ivy a 5 year old red and white and Malcolm a 3 year old trindle (I had to look it up when I found him!) They are my babies! Both are fixed but we still show UKC a lot and they do all kinds of activities: showing, coursing, fastcat, some agility and we are just adding nosework and rally. I love keeping them busy and getting to introduce the breed to new people! We are form Medina, Ohio. These are my second generation of Basenjis- my Ivy is a full niece to my first basenji Sullivan who was the greatest dog on earth (I'm a bit biased but he was so cool my husband not only let me but wanted more Basenjis!) I am a teacher by profession. [removed ad text]
Here's a pic of by babies!

Thanks for the picture. Great looking dogs, and lucky you to have such a nice pair. It's wonderful that you are pursuing so many activities with them.

@aprilk
Your babies are BEAUTIFUL! 🐾❤️🥰

YAY! More Basenjis! Thank you for being codependent and feeding my addiction. Great looking dogs. Love to hear more about the activities. I'm really close to buying some obstacles to set up in my backyard. I love to start seeing if I could train either of mine to jump, weave and crawl through a tunnel. Although I don't have any breeding information I'm quite certain that your Sullivan must be related to my Jengo. He too was the greatest dog on earth! 👊 😍 👍

You don't need to get too fancy in order to start teaching your dog these things. Look around and see what you have and can use....Perry "over a barrel".

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! I started Malcolm in agility really early when he was just a pup and he definitely has a talent for it, we got sidetracked and haven't trained since covid but I'm hoping to start back up when we can. We just moved too and I have a lot more space so I'm going to start making my own equipment to train at home this summer. Jenjo, let me know if you ever want to talk, I can send you my email 🙂 My Sullivan and my Ivy are both from Kiroja Basenjis. Here's a few more pics in action!
