I own two Basenjis, Fezzan (male) and Mara (female). I have them both in my backyard. Mara is pregnant and based on my calculations, she is due by January 9th - 10th (copulation took place on November 7th).
This is the first time that I own mixed sexes (I had always owned females - Dachshunds) and the first time that my Basenjis are to have puppies.
Is it ok to have Fezzan in the backyard when Mara gives birth to her pups, or should I definitely separate them?
Knowing Mara, she will probably have an anxiety attack if I leave her alone, but I don't want to risk unexpected behavior from either of them the day the puppies are born or during the next following days.
Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
