    does anyone know where I can find a recording or sounds on internet of our beloved ones yodel, chorkle, and other "strange sounds" that they make? I have often told people the sounds that they make and most people are ready to send me to the mental ward. Please help…. not sure if this is the right thread to post this but it is worth a try...:eek:

  • Dude- go on YouTube and search Basenji and Godfather. There is a video of a basenji "singing" along to the godfather soundtrack…...it is hilarious! He gets all into it, like he is performing- its freaking awesome! I'll see if I can find the link.

    You are right, this dog is a genious!!!I am at last discovering that they have a voice, and what a voice :D

  • Jack is silent too, I played that video for him once and he looked at me like, "Can you turn down that AWFUL racket?!" He has no desire whatsoever to sing along.

    I played it for Tosca, too, hoping she'd join in, but it made her do was the adorable head tilt!

    Yes, mine too, just a lot of noise for her, no wish to join in! What a disappointment…was so hopeful to hear a potential star, well, will have to play a musical instrument and test it: my ex husband who is Scottish used to play the backpipes, maybe he could have a go and if she doesn't sing along, I give up!

    Forgot to say that when I played it, my two cats hid under the sofa!

  • I played for my husband and he came pretty close to hiding under the sofa, too!

  • Oh my Gosh have any of you seen the you tube video "The Great Basenji Hunter?" It is unbelievable. This is truly a side to a basenji I have never ever seen and hope I never will. Here it is.

    I couldn't even finish watching that. That guy needs to be erased from the internet.

  • jack is pretty much silent, but I imagine that while I am at work during the day, he sings his heart out with no one around.

    I really didn't like this video and watch the way the owner kept annoying the dog and entice him to bite! I have seen mine grunt a bit if I try to move her from a comfortable place but I deal with that quickly: either I leave her a lone or I talk to her when I am approaching her, don't look at her in the eyes, grab her collar and move her. Did that a few times and now she knows the scenario and moves when she sees I mean "I'm the boss". I don't think it's a good idea to annoy them when they are growling like on the video as they don't know what we want out of them. It's not unique to Basenjis, my small italian greyhound was doing the same. I think Basenjis are intelligent dogs and understand quickly when we are not amused.

  • we're trying to make him watch the video… but he just turned around and went back to sleep.

    is there a certain age that they start to yodel? he's already 4 months and we've yet to hear him make a sound. either then the occasional whinning. :(

    we wish he was a singer.
