I plan on using a Kong and stuff it with peanut butter ��. Most of his other toys I would worry he would shred. I have put paper in there and have also come home to basenji confetti.

thank you for the ideas. I will have to try the toy thing- he does love his "nana - nana" ( banana shaped toy). I will try the keeping it low key too.

it happens even when he has gone outside, he is upset when crated he seems to have a but of separation anxiety when i leave. Poop is usually normal and firm but he likes to finger paint it inside the crate sometimes. He has never done it when Im home its when I leave him alone and go to work. He was doing good for a few weeks with no accidents and now he is having them off and on. I give him lots of praise when I come back and the crate is clean. It got better when I moved his crate from the bedroom to the laundry/mud room. Oddly it was better until I lost a family member and close friend and have been feeling kind of down myself. I dont know if he is reacting to that because he can sense that "mom" isnt feeling good. All I know is that he is really bonded to me (he picked me). He is okay with my brother and boyfriend but once im home he could careless about anyone else.
I hate to have to get the "puppy" crate back out.

Every now and then my 1 year old basenji will go poop in his crate. This happens even if I have just taken him out to potty. Its a plastic crate so it not hard to clean up. Anyone else have this issue. I did try to block the back of the crate but he just pulled down what I had there.

I'm looking for a good whitening shampoo to get the legs of my basenji nice and white for a show. I have used bio grooms whitening shampoo but wasn't impressed. Any other ideas on whitening them up would be appreciated as well.

Thank you. My breeder just trims the tails up and any flyaway hairs. I was just looking to see what others do as well. I used to show standard schnauzers and everyone had a different way of doing things with that breed as well.

Im just wondering what others do to prepare their Basenji for the show ring. Other than trimming the tail up what else do you do?
Do you put any chalk on the legs to whiten them?
Do you trim the ear hairs?

Any tips would be great.

Im new to showing basenjis and have a 5 mo. old. I know that tails get trimmed but was wondering if anyone shave the insides of the ears and the hind end. would appreciate any tips as well. Also does anyone use chalk to brighten the legs up? Thanks.
