I never let it snap him. He's done this ever since he found out where I stash my hair ties and I have to get them back from him. Have to keep finding new hiding places.
LOL! This a dog bred to find anything in the dense jungles of Africa. He'll find those hidden hair ties.
Thank you so much for the vote of confidence, Mr. Nobarkus. :p What I have not told y'all yet is I can train cats hehehe
Talk about hiding things. My last 2 Basenjis, Nika and Ringo used to steal those rawhide chews from each other by baiting and playing tricks. OK so Ringo would get form Nika and go in the corner of the living room and stick it right in the corner then with his nose push virtual dirt over it to bury it. Yep, rubbing his nose on the carpet to push that dirt over it:D Nika sitting and watching on the couch. Then Ringo would look around and feeling it was well buried walk away only to have Nika fly over and grab it. This game would go on and on. It was like watching a PBS nature show.
Benji used to hide food in the corner of the room and scrape virtual dirt over it, he would spend ages doing this and because we had a bare floor his nose would make squeaking sounds Sometimes he wouldn't be satisfied it was well enough hidden and he would pick a new spot and repeat the process. Like your Nika our other dog would sit watching, wait for him to walk away and then amble over and eat the goody
