I own five basenjis. Two yodel until you have a headache and my female barks. She always did. Short clipped barks. I also researched the breed before getting my first and she is an excellent dog. My third basenji was a handful. Three years later and he has stopped his destructiveness etc. It was a hard three years. Lol. You never know with a basenji. Greatest breed. Loyal, active, funny but some require ALOT of patience.
Thinking we're half basenji
Just recently adopted a new pup - well he's 7 months now and i've had him for 2. It's been suggested to me and after reading all these posts that he looks just like a "B" but he's all black (maybe some lab???) and exhibits so many of the "B" behaviors. This is my first pup and he's proving to be a challenge but we're learning together. I'll add a pic soon enough and maybe we can get to the bottom of it. Thanks for having us! Everyone has such beautiful pups here.

My husband and I have a red and white Basenji boy 4 1/2 mths called Bandit and a 2yr Lowchen boy called Alfie.
We are revisiting obedience for Alfie for first time training for Bandit.
We are walking 2 a day with haltis now and what a difference it has made to our walks. Instead of having our arms pulled off, the boys have progressed to walking beside us…. Hooray... and oh so enjoyable.
