Smells the B hates:

Hey Michael, good for you for joining BCOA! They published your application this month.

Thanks, I still have not been told if they accepted it or not.

Tea Tree Oil. This stuff is great to keep the dogs from licking a spot. They absolutely hate the smell. When I have to use it the poor dog who ends up with it on looks like they are repulsed by their own odor.

Max's nickname was Elvis. He would curl up his lip on one side when he didn't like the smell of something–I think the worst smell for him was bad breath. Before I would go out on a date, I would breathe in his face a little to make sure I didn't need more mouthwash 🙂

Chance is the only one who is picky with smells. I use tea tree oil to wash my hair and he goes crazy. He wants to rub himself on my head!
Here is a list of things he doesn't like:
Vicks
perfume
pepperment
hairspray
smelly lotions
Dr. Bronners Soap
cleaning products
tiger balm
baby powder
cigarette smoke

Nice one MaxBooBooBear. If I'm not cautious, when I yawn, Medjai tries to lick my mouth dry, so I can't do that. I haven't tried the tea tree, but Medjai loves the shampoo a few girls wear and doesn't stop trying to roll in it.

That is funny that Chance doesn't like Dr. Bronner's Soap…DH uses that and the entire house smells like it after he takes a shower. It never stops jack from trying to lick him clean.

Phoenix does that wierd curled up lip "ohh that smell is NASTY" Face lol

#1 would be cigarette smoke
others would be those cintrella candles u put on the table,
nail polish.
nail polish remover,
any type of smell good spray ,
antcovies,{can't blame him on that one }
Morning breath {can't blame him on that one either }
and i'm sure i'm forgetting some but those are the ones i can think of

The thing he does that drives me CRAZY

I go to Yankee Candle and buy those really expensive but really good smelling candles lol and when ever i get a cookie type of smell like { oatmeal. sugar. coconut ect. } he tries to eat it out of the jar {not when it's lite but before} i have to make sure i pretty much glue the covers on or take them out of his reach or i leave the room for a second and there he is with his candle on his bed trying to paw the smelly cookies out { or so he thinks } lol

You are published for two months and if anyone has comments they can send them to the board and after that the board votes on your membership. So you have next month to be in the monthly newletter and then they will vote the month after. So July most likely they would vote on the membership.

ok, thanks for letting me know. I got a notice of something like that a while ago, but my memory isn't good enough to know the details. I have sent them an email and haven't gotten a response yet.

Topper bites his tail sometimes, and tea tree oil keeps him away from it. When I reach for the bottle, he runs and hides, poor baby! It works for us.

I haven't found anything yet that tayda and lenny don't love to roll in. the stinkier the better! lenny particularly loves hair dye! when i'm dying my hair at home i'll usually bend forward and turn my head upside down to "shampoo it in" and lenny will come up and turn circles in front of me and lean up against my legs trying to get closer and closer. Crazy dog! gotta love 'em!:o 😃

Cyrus snuck a little lick of some wasabi while Cale and I were eating Japanese food recently. He hated it! He started sneezing and wiping his paws over his snout. Cale and I secretly hoped that would be a lesson to him about stealing food.

Booger once snuck a Taco Bell hot sauce packet off a countertop & chewed on it. Now whenever he smells hot sauce he starts snorting & pawing at his nose. He will still steal anything he can get his paws on.

Alex was a really aggressive beggar when he was young. The only way you could keep him away from the table was to wave a bottle of Tobasco sauce near his nose. He'd curl his lips, shake his head and make a beeline away from the table!

Medjai doesn't like the carmex, or any alcohol. The more he shakes his head and curls his lip, the higher proof the drink is. I like that because I don't have to worry about him trying to drink anything.

Hah, I noticed this also with anything that contains alcohol. Except, my B will still try to drink it. He has a rather strong curiosity for red wine and scotch. I never let him drink any, but if I'm not watching him closely, i'll see him trying to stick his tongue in the glass.

Yet if I take a deep breath after having a drink, he will paw at his face from the smell of alcohol. Funny dog. 😃

Haha, maybe cops should just have a basenji with them as a multitool. Breathalizer, chase runners to tire them out, companion for the cop, maybe train as drug dog or bomb dog too.

There is a fellow in north Georgia who is working with a basenji pup for tracking and possibly bomb detection. He has worked with bloodhounds in the past and is very impressed with the basenji's ability!
