@liliana said in Looking for a breeder in Quebec or Ontario:

Any suggestion which breeder I should stay away from ?

Stay away from Josabry. They've got a beautiful website but I've run into a few sick dogs they have produced. You can find breeders close to you by going here: http://www.basenjiclubofcanada.com/

You need a ton of patience to be successful with clicker training but it works! I don't have meaningful use of my hands anymore but I've used clicker training quite successfully without using much of a lure - the dog eventually will offer behaviours that you can mark, and then slowly shape the behaviour into what you want. I don't use a marker word, I use a specific sounding mouth/tongue click. A mouth click is handy, it's always with you.

I hope you don't ride motorcycles anymore. Everyone we know who has done that has gotten seriously injured.

No I don't ride anymore, but I sure would if I could, and I know a lot of people who still do. I am so sorry about your friend, but not everyone who rides dies or is seriously injured.

@giza1
I love the biker outfit and the goggles! That is hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

I fashioned those bike goggles out of swim goggles - those were in the days before you could actually buy goggles for a dog. She wore them quite well; lost a pair in NB, made up another pair in NS.

She was my first Basenji and she passed away at 18. Her goggles are now hanging over the corner of her picture that stands on a dresser.

Awhile ago I had mentioned that my husband and I had a Basenji that rode across Canada with us on a motorcycle. Someone (can't remember who) asked if I had a picture. I haven't found the ones from our tripp, but I did find one of her on the bike. I wanted to make sure that I posted a picture to prove I wasn't sh*tin' ya. She did ride across the country on that bike.

And,she may have been the only Basenji to show up at a National Specialty on a Harley! Practically drove right up to ringside because we were late - no, she didn't win.

@giza1 Thank you so much for your reply do you have any experience with the medicine Vetoquinol for male dogs?

No, sorry, I do not.

You can guess and guess all day, and even have the "professionals" chime in, but unless you do a DNA test, you'll never really know.

I have had a few female dogs on Stilbestral (sp) for leaking urine. Very common in older, spayed bitches; the pill worked great and they would eventually need 1 about every 4-5 days.
Might work for males too.
