@daureen - I will also say that my C-Me picked me... note however that most all responsible breeders will pick the pup for the home.. this is why breeders want to know all about the home/family/lifestyle, we want them to be in their forever homes... that said there are exceptions.. in my case this was a puppy back from a breeding... I had the choice of the 5 bitches in the litter but from the moment that I went in the house, this was the pup that came to me and didn't want to leave. LOL... and in some cases there could be two that are about the same and would fit the family... then they have a choice. My C-Me was a great choice and while there were others in the litter that was maybe a bit nicer as a show puppy, but I could not turn away from this girl that picked me... She is a Dual Champion and whelped a wonderful litter... And she is a loving girl to all in the family
Learning pet grooming
Hi my name is Lana and i have 4 dogs all girls. i am hope to meet people around my area to get the insite of pet grooming. I am in school online and need somewhere and someone to help with my exerises.:)
Not much grooming for Basenjis… nails are about it.... other then a bath every now and again...
I took a grooming course from a girl I helped train her dog. It was the best money I ever spent. I had looked at the on line courses, but didn't feel I would get the best exposure. I would start to practice on bathing first. Don't get water in their nose. Tip their head up and use a slow spray on their face. I found a low, slow spray does not get them upset if you hold it to their head. Some dogs can't have their ears wet either, some don't like their feet touched, or tails. The best experience comes with exposure. If you need help their are a lot of people on this site who are groomers who can help.
