My Sahara is 9 months old and my hubby wants another one. I am afraid to get another one just yet, Sahara is just so jealous. She won't let my cats come near me.
Do the cats get along with your Basenji otherwise? Or does the trouble start when the cats want to be on you when your B is around? You are brave, cats and Basenji's don't always seem to mix.
We don't have many pictures of them all together, notice Cleo correcting the brindle pup.:)
How do you have 6 B's and there not be constant fightning, I have always heard that B's don't get along with other B's.
I think Basenji's love being with other Basenji's, they are pack dogs and they thrive in that enviorment. You have to be the pack leader, and you have to keep in mind that they do have rank and be aware of that fact…..you have to think like the Leader of a dog pack. Feeding the higher ranking dog first, letting the higher ranking dog lead the way to the yard.....ect. We do keep two seperate packs, which I explain in the thread four of six.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated. And do you think females are easier to raise?
I love my girls, I never had any daughters so they are all Daddy's little girls. But females seem to be the one's (of mine at least) that do the fighting, mostly with other females. I would reccomend a boy/girl combination if you where to try two dogs. Max and Cleo are life mates, I doubt they could be seperated…...although if you'd see how she treats him sometimes you'd have to wonder. I know two males can be a problem around mating time.
