I am going this Friday to pick out our first Family dog. I have decided on the basenji and need to know even more than I have read about them.
I have been a dog owner all of my life but not on my own with my own family. I have waited until my three girls were old enough to understand the caretaking of a pet and hopefully this one will be a wonderful addition!
I am getting a little girl puppy. She will not be potty trained. I intend to crate train her.
I bought chew toys as I was told they were needed!
Any thing else?
Should I be scared?
Should I be excited?
I'm in WI too. I live in the De Pere area, where in the state are you? There are a few other WI people on the forums too. I just got a new girl puppy as well. It's a lot of work but it's really fun too. Do you mind sharing which breeder you are getting your dog from? I know or have met a number of the WI/IL breeders.
