Is there an age when a basenji misbehaves more than usual? My female, Trinity - app. 10 mos. - has begun gnawing on the corner of a baseboard in our house. Not only do I not want her to ingest that stuff, I don't want the baseboard to look gnawed on! We have NEVER had issues with her chewing on ANYTHING in the house she wasn't supposed to (from 8 wks on) - other than our rug with tassles on the ends - but that's a given! Anyway, I put her in crate timeout & sprayed some bitter spray on the corner (once again) & let her out a few minutes later, only to watch her march directly to the baseboard corner & proceed to lick the bitter spray! So, I repeated the time-out session & when I let her out, she circled around for a minute, looked at me, then walked right over to the corner, turned her butt to me, & began to lick again. She challenges me on a regular basis, which I don't mind, but I do mind her complete defiance. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
