Just a little piece of advice…
When there's a will, there's a way. Kiya was so upset that she was confined, she pulled at the wire of her crate with her teeth, (wire crate) until it bent and collapsed on her. I can't use the crate without zip ties or wire ties anymore. Keep that in mind! Basenjis are just too darn smart for their own good!
My dad's Basenji Simeon, was another story about wire crates...he kept getting them opened, whether figuring out the locking device, or bending the walls with his teeth. Finally my dad put special wire around the connecting pieces and padlocked the door! That didn't stop Simeon! He used his body to get the crate to the door of the room and chewed through the refrigerator wire!
UGH! Simeon is such a handful! hehe
