Come Sunday, I will be fostering my first B, and I won't lie, I'm just as nervous as I am excited.
I have an hour drive Sun to pick the little guy up.. All I know about him is that he's 3, R/W, very underweight, his name is Chopper, and he's "aggressive" (Though, from the sound of it, he just bites in defense if he's reached for or manhandled. His owners responded to this type of 'aggression' in kind, and now they're getting rid of him because he's getting worse.)
He's not my first dog, and not the first aggressive dog I've worked with. He is, however, my first Basenji, so I'm unsure if my usual methods and theories are going to actually work. I think I've worked myself up to almost thinking of them less as dogs and more as wild animals, hah.
Any recommended reading, sites, strategies, tips, etc are certainly welcome and appreciated.
Wish me luck!
