Hey all. I'm the proud owner of a 7 year old female basenji. I got her completely on impulse from a store in a mall, having no idea what I was getting myself into.
After doing research on her, based on her… Odd behavior, I found out that I didn't have a dog quite like my other two dogs. (Golden and German Shepard)
I read all about clicker training, crating and their eating habits and decided I didn't wanna fool with any of that. I worked hard at training her like any of my other dogs. It was a tough road, but I've ended up with one cool pup.
She's great around people and whenever we have parties, she's always the hit. She ends up in SOMEONE's lap and generally stays there until they get up.
Here's the gang lounging around:
