Hello to all. I am new to this board, but not to basenjis. We have our second basenji, Rocco, he is six years old and neutered and is in excellent health. He is a perfect dog in every way, except that there are some people that he just does not like. These people tend to be the type that make my wife and I uneasy. He doesn't give much of a warning. No growling, I've never seen a basenji show it's teeth and of course he doesn't bark. He will have his hair up and that's about all. Because of this we tell all people that come to our house to completely ignore the dog. Pretend that he is not there and don't even look at him. This has worked extremely well for us. The dog gets to know the person and never forgets them. They can come over anytime and he will greet them as a friend.
We are just at a loss to figure out what to do about the people he doesn't like.
We will appreciate any suggestions.
By the way, he has never barooed or yodeled. Any ideas about this?
Thanks to all.
