New to Basenjis

Hello we just got our pup. He is 9 weeks old and was wondering what are the best ways to house train a Basenji pup. We just want to start out the right way with Sancho.

It is nice to see you here looking for information.

I would hope that your pup's breeder would have gien you all of this kind of information.
My guess is that your puppy manual [and yes I am serious] did not include anything about house training.
The biggest thing to remember when training them for the house is that they are a DOG, and a puppy at that…. which means that unless you havce no value for anything in your house, you need to crate train him.
You may want to purchase the Basenji Owners Manual through the Evergreen Basenji Club to have something to refer to, in addition to your puppy manual.
You can find it at:

Good luck with your pup!

I know you know this but outside every little bit and lots of love and time. Welcome and would love to hear more about your pup and pictures. Great being Basenji parents there is lots of fun time ahead. Love his name that's cute.

There is lots of information about house training and crate training… Did you get any information from the breeder? That is really who should have provided you with lots of info.... but if not... you have come to the right place.

Hopefully your pups sire and dam have been DNA tested for Fanconi?
