@dagodingo he’s a 2 year old male. He was not aggressive at all the first year. In the beginning of this year we moved and then shorty after his best dog friend that we would see almost every day died. A few months later we got a new puppy. There is not one single moment I can recall he became aggressive. It has been a progressing problem throughout this year. It started with growling at people and then he decided that he hates the neighbors dog and growls at him every time he sees him but will eventually warm up and play with him. Most recently he has started snapping at people. Never me and actually I’m almost never around when he escalates.He has had his health tested a couple of months ago and everything was normal. I was hoping to find someone with Basenji experience to help me.

@elbrant I didn’t mean to imply that I want a dog trainer to make my dog behave. I am just trying to say that I need help. I need someone to guide me.

Has anyone in the Cincinnati or Dayton area of Ohio hired a successful dog trainer for your basenji? My B within the past year has become aggressive to other dogs and some people. I do not know what caused it and it needs to stop before someone is seriously hurt. I have already hired a dog trainer that had hundreds of 5 star reviews and he made no difference on my dog. I am scared of wasting my money again. If you know of anyone please let me know! I really need help with him.

How would you recommend enforcing that aggression is not okay? And I have considered that he was in pain but when I put pressure on him in different areas he doesn’t react or care so I don’t think it’s that.

My 1.5yr old basenji over the last 4 to 5 months has changed a tremendous amount. I don’t understand what it causing this change. His dog companion past away about three months ago and since he has become aggressive. It’s like I have a different dog. He growls and bites me when I try to pick him up most of the time. He has slowed down and has much less energy then before. I have to beg him to eat in the morning and sometimes at night. We also got a new puppy about a month ago who he plays with and doesn’t seem to have any issues with. Do you think he is just maturing? Or could something be wrong with him? He has seen a vet and she did blood work which came out normal and a fecal sample which also was clear. Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this behavior?
