When they are with their littermates and any adults, during play when they bite to hard, the one getting bite will scream at the biter… and adults will strongly correct... this is when they learn "soft" bite... so sounds like your Rocco did not get this... This happens if removed from the adults and/or other littermates too early... So as stated, all play stops... also, I suggest that if the bite is too hard, scream/yell very loud and then stop all play

Hi. Allow me to introduce my dogs and myself to you.
My name is Maureen and I live outside Philadelphia with three Basenjis. There names and ages are Leo, 4, Jack,3, and Stella,1.5 years old.
Obviously, I love the breed. I had my first basenji about 17 years ago, and now am seeking a home with a yard. I must walk them minimum of one-two hours every day and its getting old.
So, I hope to find a yard for my dogs within the next 6 months.
I look forward to reading your stories and hope to contribute soon to this forum.:rolleyes:
Welcome… hope you find your dream home soon.... Who did you get your Basenjis from? Many of us are related by our Basenjis
Welcome Maureen and lovely pack, nice to have you onboard. I wish you luck in your house hunt, may it be swift and painless..
Welcome, Maureen and pack! I have three also, but much older…10, 12 and 14.
I love having three, it is just the right number for us. Hope you find a yard soon, but you may still have to walk them often to keep the energy used up!

Welcome to the forum! I have a yard and still walk em 1-1/2 hours a day.:D Anyway great job keeping them exercised and happy!
Welcome to you Maureen, and to your three basenjis Leo, Jack and Stella. Have you any pictures of them you could share with us? We love pictures!
I hope you find a home with a backyard for them in a timely fashion. Would you be renting? Some owners are very fussy and don't want animals at their rental properties. Such a shame, because a lot of animals are cleaner than some humans.
Welcome to the forum. I hope you find somewhere with a yard soon.
Mine have plenty of room to run about at home so I only have to take them for walks for new sniffs which they enjoy. I'm getting too old for long walks and have to split mine up as I can only manage 3 at a time at the most. 2 of my walks are quite short (about 30 to 40minutes) as the walkers include two oldies who can't manage far on lead although I must say that at home running free they seem to get around very well.
I have three bs too! And I'm just across the bridge in Jersey! Mine are 6,5,&2.5. Welcome!
