I have the Basenji Owner's Manual from the EBC, and I have found it to be a pretty complete guide. My husband and kids thought it funny that I'd buy an owner's manual for a dog – okay, it did seem a bit odd to me too -- but I love that book, and I'd recommend it to any one considering a Basenji.

It was so helpful to me when I first got into basenjis.
They are so like no other breed.
Its helpful to know your not crazy, yes, your basenji is doing THAT and its normal…for a basenji!

Basenji Mix

Finally, my BOM came in the mail. I already read it front to back. It has a medical insert regarding Fanconi to reference for myself and for vet's who may be unfamiliar with diagnosis and treatment. That is a great idea. It is interesting read. Some of it relates to young puppies and training of which I am past that point now but very beneficial. If only Duke came with this manual . . . At only $8 it would be very wise for every new Basenji owner to be given this manual before or when they pick up their puppy or rescue - for the everyone's well being.

Thanks for the endorcement.
This book is great for the price.
It is really for puppy buyers, but I tell anyone who has NOT owned a basenji that this is a very good workbook.
Hopefully, anyone who is new to the breed, or thinking of having puppies will get one and put it in a bag with the items they send home with a new puppy.
Hope everyone has a very good fri the 13~

Is there a way to get this FEDEX 🙂

Sorry to be so late in replying.
I work at the Post office and we all know what that is like now, with the holiday season taking off.
As far as I know, they do the mailing through the PO, but if you really need it sooner, ask if they can send it fed ex.

Am I able to get this book shipped to Canada?

I don't know,but I would tell you to go to the site and ask.
If they can't, then I will send one up to you.

Does anyone know where i can get this book in the UK please?

I think it's made by a local B club (Washington, right??) in the US… so I imagine you have to order directly from them.

I'll bet you can get a US forum member to ship ya one 😉

@thunderbird8588:

Does anyone know where i can get this book in the UK please?

Yes, I be interested in a copy too. 🙂

I have emailed the Evergreen club and they will ship the manual to the UK at a cost of $8.00, you pay by paypal. Kay who sent me the email has said to let her know when paypal has been used as they dont always inform her.
I am going to send for one in the next few days.

Have sent for my book, can hardly wait, all we need now is the Basenji 🙂
