@pearlypoo She is cute, cute, cute! Where did she come from? She may always be cuddly, I have a two year old female who is still very cuddly, my 8 year old male, not so much, never was. He wants to be close, just not cuddled, they're all different.

He's not having accidents, he just hasn't got the idea of housetraining yet, you can't be letting him run around without watching him like a hawk. If you can't, he's gotta be in his crate. Take him out regularly, make a big fuss, treats, when he pees/poos where you want him to. If he does nothing, he has to go back in the crate if you can't watch him. Be consistent, he'll learn.

I don't see the point in breeding and raising a litter of purebreds and not registering them. It's not expensive, and if you're going to be paying for other things associated with responsibly raising a litter anyway, why wouldn't you?

I think that unless the dog is of a breed that has a continuous grow coat, it will take awhile. Our huskies would take a long time too.

Basenji coats aren't very fast growing, so I wouldn't worry about it. Can we see a picture of your Basenji?

I would have 2 Basenji males together before I would have 2 Basenji females. They don't call them bitches for nothing.

@DebraDownSouth said in NEW BRAND of DOG FOOD??:
I read a vet article once and he said not only is it okay to give them a few bites of whatever you are eating, but considering their taste ability far exceeds ours, it enriches their lives.

A dog's taste ability does NOT far exceed ours, they have only about 17% of the number of tastebuds we do. Their scenting ability is what far exceeds, so they certainly can smell our food very well, but taste, not so much.

@katoman said in Breeding my 2 year old Basenji:

Well let's start at the top... no one asked for your opinion, I did not risk my pet's life, and the proof of it, she is alive and well .....and has always had a clean bill of health from the Vet, and I might add, the vet warned me about people like you, and said most have no idea what they are talking about, they read a few articles and they then have a MD license in pet breeding.

I want to see say something here, and I think it is something that anybody who is considering breeding their dog has to think about (and, probably, the majority do not). The world has more than enough dogs, so many that the shelters have to kill them, and for every puppy born, another dies in a shelter for lack of a home.
