**also punishment is what humans do when they don’t get the behavior they want, dogs need lots of walks, running, playing. We had couch wrestling every night in the wintertime because I couldn’t get out as much.Mine know Stop, Come and Sit and no matter what they are doing , they mind, I’ve never laid a hand on my dogs, my voice tone, and hand jesters. Good luck, it’s hard work being a basenji owner.

*My motto, as an owner of three B’s, a tired basenji is a good basenji, ‘ need exercise, running in particular, I took my three to an enclosed 5 mi wooded dog park twice a day, or they would destroy furniture, unattended glasses, phones, cords, you name it! These dogs are hunters, sniffers and sharp eyesight, you have to wear them out physically and mentally. I work from home so I’ve always had the time to care for them .

Get to know your puppy, when I brought my first B home she was 6 weeks old and had just started eating kibble. She tore up every single toy, squeakers included, she enjoyed sleeping in the sun shine and looking out the window, sometimes she would run around the hose at very high speed, we called it the “basenji 500” I wouldn’t spend too much, I have three now and they like living outside, the have Hugh pen, a heated dog house and get long walks in our woods. Enjoy.

I don’t bathe my three very often, they’re outside all the time and sleep in their dog house with hay and a heater when it gets cold,
We bathe them when they get muddy at the park.

that does seem excessive, Id take her on a leash walk a few times a day, not long walks, shes had surgery. if she is wearing a cone to prevent her from licking her stitches out, shell need a walk or two, If your giving her pain meds, ( shich I did for mine) shes be kind loopy ) The stiches will bother her, Basenjis like to chew, and groom, I had to isolate mine because of the licking each other, and concern.. It will be fine, some vets are just over protective,
