• so cute. No I mean beds not crates. They will have two seperate crates for sure but they will be sleeping next to us on the bed.


  • We went to the basenji meeting and it was great. About 10 Basenji's there. I have some pics and video. Hope to post them soon.


  • How exciting! I was thinking you were leaning toward the younger one. Yep - puppy potty training 101 is in the forecast for you. Stock up on the paper towel and Nature's Miracle. It will all work out - paws crossed - you've come a long way with Champ. Your training mode should kick right back in gear with your little Belle. btw - cute name.


  • Take your new basenji to a gentle basic obedience class…you will probably NOT pass...so don't expect that. LOL...just plan on having fun with your new Belle and helping you to bond with her.


  • I had someone once tell me that their basenji did in 3 years what a typical Golden would do in 8 weeks. LOL


  • Or longer…but we do have some wonderful folks who have been able to get b's to do things I never thought they would.
    Brenda Phillips and Judy Lange in Wa state have b's who do obedience and Rally and they just ROCK.
    Its a joy to watch them.
    Its not easy, and it take a great sense of humor...but oh, when it work..joy!

    And one of my puppy owners (now she is an adult…) has done Rally and OB with great success, putting a RN and CD on her girl.. and yes, without a doubt...a sense of humor is needed

    Really? My dogs have always been the class stars! Each dog has gone thru puppy kindergarten and basic manners. The only thing they don't do as well in real is life recalls (did great in class, though).

    Well, and counter surfing, as they learned it from each other…and are randomly rewarded handsomly (i.e. left over chicken nuggets, or empty ice cream container :rolleyes: ) But I know plenty of Goldens that counter surf too 🙂


  • I saw one gal, working with her basenji in rally, get down on the ground to try to get the dog to lay down on the grass.
    She just went down and the b looked at her like she was CRAZY!
    We all gave her a great round of clapping when she left the ring.
    B's got to love them!
