New Basenji parents from Atlanta GA

Congratulations on your new family member! Love her name!!! Don't be surprised that if it is raining, all her careful training goes away. MANY Basenjis HATE to get wet. A raincoat can help...at least it does with my rain averse Binti!0_1612464597884_2 BINTI.jpg

Iโ€™ve taken her out once in rain and yes she does not dig it at all. Luckily I have a lower covered deck at my house so I can Take her out dry ๐Ÿ˜Š

She is doing great in the potty department but she was sad today and I could tell. I tried to love on her a lot. No inside potty accidents! Woot woot!

@kembe Did you happen to notice she is usually sleeping? LOL!

Gatsby is doing great so far and she even went potty in a little bit of snow last night! Sheโ€™s sleeping through the night (almost lol) the kids and I are Enjoying playing tug of war with her and she loves the rawhide bones ๐Ÿ˜Š. !0_1612700069115_89A4A3D5-118A-490D-9A25-E22F8FAD2475.jpeg

I would suggest you be careful with rawhide. I quit using rawhide chews and bones when one of mine got a piece lodged in her digestive system, causing a partial blockage. We were lucky to get it shifted without surgery. The other potential issue is that dogs can get quite possessive about those when they have become softened up a bit. My girls would go to war over them and even growl at me if I removed one when it was getting sufficiently icky and small that I was concerned about her potentially swallowing the remains whole. I didn't like the possessiveness and resource guarding that seemed to result.

@joewbasenjidad Those nails need attention ! but she is indeed cute -

She is a cutie.Enjoy this wonderful breed!
