I thought about putting this in the "Where does your Basenji sleep" thread, but I thought I'd open a new thread here called "Training Brags". Because this is my 1st Basenji and he's still a puppy. Milestones are met for us "new-B's" often. When I first got Duke as a young pup, not knowing what the hell kind of dog he was and with questions looming in my head like, "How long before I find a new home for him?" and the like and as you may have read I finally found out he was Basenji.
Anyway . . . Duke sleeps in a travel crate tent in the hall between our bedrooms. My big proud brag is: For the last couple nights, when I holler for my son and Duke, "IT'S BED TIME!", Duke runs up the stairs and noses his way past the zipper door and into his bed! Without a treaty bribe! Yes-sir-ee! I can't believe it - I'm so happy he's tired, likes his bed and knows the protocol . . . without a treat! He's so smart. Honestly, I didn't think this crazy dog was trainable. By George, he is . . . and so am I!
