Taking your basenji to a gentle basic obedience class will help you and your b learn to work together. Its very important for the basenji to trust his owner. If the owners are not consistant, then the b will have issues. Training any new dog with a class is the way to build a loving relationship.
Basic obedience classes prices vary, but you can ask your vet if he knows of one.
There are often a few other folks there, but your b is on a leash, and he learns to watch you and the signals you give. He learns to be with other dogs with out playing for fighting.
Its very good all round stuff. Let us know what you find and how it goes.
I will look around then and thanks soooooooo , sooooooo, soooo much!!. This is helping me very much.!!!!! I was told by another breeder i talked to and she was telling me that there are very mean people on her that will give me a bad attitued over me wanting to breed my boy because he's a pet store basenji!!.
Can you copy and paste your results into a message so I can see what it actually says? Here is my puppy's as an example of what it should look like when you paste it in.
Fanconi DNA linkage Received: 01/12/2010
Test: FANCONI SYNDROME
Or did you get the actual certificate in the mail? There is a 2-4 week lag between owner notification and public posting so I can't go see it on the site yet. If you got certificate type in what it says over the signature. That is where it should say Probably ____________ for Fanconi Syndrome.
Retesting will not change the result. If he is Probably Affected then you will need to start strip testing him monthly with Urine Glucose Test Strips so you can catch the onset of the disease as early as possible and begin treatment. You should also neuter him sooner rather than later to reduce the stress on his body caused by hormones when rut hits.
