Some kind of preperation I guess?

We 'dog -sat' my friends 8 month old chocolate lab this weekend -

all in the name of better preperation for a Basenji pup. So plenty of walks, up in the night to let him out for a wee, early morning wake ups, etc etc.

All went really well and both my kids got involved and enjoyed it.

Not a Basenji, granted, but more valuable pre-pup training!


The preparation doesn't hurt that's for sure. The kids can learn the responsibilities of dog ownership. You just don't want the Basenji to be a novelty that wears off.
