He refuses to eat his food if I'm not home or even if he thinks I'm leaving the house. I had to learn to out smart the little rascal in order to get him to eat breakfast in the morning. He knows our routine before I leave for work and he started refusing to eat knowing what was coming.. (me leaving)..Keep in mind he's perfectly fine while I'm gone. When its time to eat he stands in the door way between the kitchen and the living room and waits to see what I do after I put the food bowl down…If I go jump in the shower- he wont eat cause the shower means I'm getting ready to go....If I go sit on the couch he will now eat & then I can get in the shower!
When I tell people my basenji made me late for work they think I'm kidding......they have no idea!! lol
