I once saw a basenji clicker trained to scratch at the proper grade sand paper that was glued to a board. The basenji even curled his paw so the pads were not injured. This kept the nails perfectly trimmed. Perhaps the scratching/digging behavior could be re-directed into the more productive behavior and nail clipping would never be an issue!
Basenji-Savvy Trainers in NYC??
I'm looking for recommendations regarding trainers in Brooklyn/Manhattan who are Basenji-savvy… I just adopted a 2-year old who is sweet & outgoing, but hasn't learned basic obedience and is a major-league puller on leash. No major issues, just the usual Basenji stuff - very independent, selective hearing, wants to chase everything moving or not...
