I was very disappointed to see the Basenji Clubs had not put on a stand for Discover Dogs at Crufts. Does anyone know why this is?
We hear over and over about the "wrong" people wanting/buying basenjis and them ending up in homes that dont understand their needs and requirements, so surely opportunities like this should be taken to give potential new owners accurate information about the breed and the opportunity to interact with the dogs which many of them may not have even done before buying a puppy. I know when i was looking into buying a pug several years ago, the first place i went to meet them was the DD stand at Crufts.
I would be interested to know why the basenji clubs havent put this on. A friend of mine does a breed stand at DD at Crufts and Earl's Court and really enjoys it - hard work but very rewarding. I would be more than happy to take Maya along as a "sample basenji"
