I knew ahead of time that Basenjis weren't 'Silent' dogs, but I wasn't quite prepared for the musical interlude this morning…
We brought our 4 1/2 month old girl home on Friday, and it's been great so far.
Bassit has been perfect all weekend; we've crated her while out and about for short periods and although there was a little complaint, it seemed short-lived and pretty minor.
This morning when I went to work, it seems that Bassit was not impressed. I got a call from my neighbours a half hour after I left, and she'd been screaming the entire time. I feel terrible, because I leave the house at 6:30 a.m. and she was keeping my neighbours awake!
Obviously, not working isn't an option. Is there something that I can do to help her adjust to being crated? (We're only leaving her for a few hours at a time, my boyfriend will go home to her at lunch)
Thanks so much for your advice!
