I've been using a car seat in mine but she will not settle in it at all, she will perch, stand inside, stand outside (even though she's anchored to it) and do every other combination aside from sit or lie down nicely. I've been through 3 different seats and they've all had the same effect. When she was smaller I got one which was like a box which was raised and that was probably the most successful one but she grew too big for it quickly.
A few words from Boubou

When I first met the partner for my life, I knew it had happend, I met him. I knew from the first moment I was at home. As you all should know, it is the one question for a little dog: who will be my socalled owner? If you would listen carefully, I will try to tell what was going on: When I met my partner, I knew. He was all a question, and love. He felt that I know, but was wondering how could this be. He looked at me: how can you be so sure? You are nine weeks dog, I am 44 years human, and evry day I know less. - As you all ought to know, humans carry on, just carry on. Without knowing. - When waiting for the chance/curse of a knew life, naked souls sitting together endlessly talking what would be. It´s the eternal life before decision, before „going down“. Who wants to be a human? Who wants a dog´s life? I agreed to go down under the condition to stay a soul, and to meet another soul. That would be a way, I knew, that could make loneliness bearable. The question of survival is to understand the food chain of sadness.
So now I am a four and a half years Basenji, and my partner learned a lot. I taught him. Before I came, he was wondering: How can a man ever know what is really going on in a dog, as he has no words. We look in each others eyes - or even without looking - and both smile about this silly question. This is so precious for him! All his life human language was most important for him, but I taught him a lot of much higher value.
Oh, not to forget to tell: He is so glad to have found „Basenji Forums“. He was looking for it, without much hope. It is not always so funny „owning“ a B, because of the people, which are people, dog-people, dog-experts. There are even Basenji-experts, who know so many Basenjis. We haven´t met one single Basenji in Austria, Italy or France. Only people who say: a dog is a dog. So often I have to comfort him: Look at me! I am a dog, but … - That works. Ah yes: he already spent hours and days with B-Forums. It´s very good for him, he found a family there.

Welcome Boubou. Thank you for the wonderful story. You might find someone close to where you live here at the B forum.

You may be in Austria, but me and Lycia are in Switzerland! We are neighbors! There are a couple other Basnejis who live en Suisse with us. If you ever stop by let us know!

there are at least 4 Old Legend's B's in Austria, but I guess more "south" than Vienna And of course, the "big old Lady" Mrs. Phyllis Poduschka-Aigner (Jangua Basenjis). but I guess, these people do not communicate a lot over the internet. We're sorry, but we cannot remember the city's name, but there is a big dog show every year….ups, running around a little reminded us, that the city's name was Graz....
baroos to you
