Pros and cons of getting an older puppy
I wish to seek advice from this forum as experienced basenji owners. I will not be able to pick up my puppy until it is at least 5-6 months due to covid. I was wondering what are the pros and cons in getting an older puppy, in regards to:
- Training it (potty train, learning commands such as sit, no etc or remembering their names)
- Removing it from its litter? Will it have separation anxiety?
- Will they be comfortable settling in a new home?
Essentially I would love to hear about your experience with bringing home older pups. I have no doubt the breeder will socialise it in the meantime but I feel like I will miss out on important time with my basenji.
