Thank you Andrea. When it's time for Bandit to go to bed, I go into the kitchen to grab a couple of treats. He's hot on my heels by the time I reach the kitchen….... lovely!! he's off the couch!!!
I say to Bandit "now it's bed time, outside into bed" and he heads for the door and once outside I firmly say sit Bandit which he does. I then give me the treats saying good boy and close the door. He's such a smart cookie....... and this way I don't have a confrontation with him.....excellent!
My Basenji scares me and he's only 7mths old…... he's allowed up on the couch with us until it's time for bed...... when either my husband or I wake him and try to move him down off the couch saying it's bed time..... he looks up and growls then just goes off his head trying to snap at us...... we are new to Basenjis...... is this normal behaviour????
