I’m planning on getting a basenji. I’ve done tons of research and I think I am prepared! I have discussed it with me whole family (mom, dad, and young brother of 10) about everything and we are all willing to pitch in and make sure that he gets his exercise. The only matter is that my mom does not want him inside ALL the time. During his first year, he will be living inside and we will take him outside for potty training every hour or so. Once he gets older, he CAN still be inside when we are home, but he will be outside when we have family over or when we are out and cannot bring him a long. He will sleep inside and outside, wherever he prefers. My dad is making him a house outside for him to chill in and it will have a fan/ac so that he does not over heat in the sun. What do you guys think? Is it ok for a basenji to be outside for about 6-7 hours a day?
