Thanks for responding to my message, Molly is very good on her leash when walking, she walks right by our knee and prances like a queen and very good with people and dogs while walking. She is only that way in our little ,kindof ,yard. She is fine unless they come into the yard, I will try the sit stay/down stay to see if that helps and then treat her. She is sooooo fussy about her treats, she only likes a few types and I get rid of the others.
Molly lives full time in a motorhome. We live during the winter time in an Arizona RV Park. We keep her on a 10' lead outside of our motorhome when we aren't playing at the dog park or walking, etc. She has become very upset when people or dogs, which are friends of hers and she plays with them at the dog park with no problems, when they come in our little yard. She growls and tries to keep them out of this tiny yard of hers. She is fine anyother place, only in her little yard. When we are outside with her we tell her NO, and hold on her lead until wshe settles down. She hates to share, so I know she doesn't want the dogs to get her stuff, but she does it with people she knows really well as well with her best dog friends. Is this a trait with a female B? Everyone who see's her out of her yard thinks she is soooo friendly and calm. Would love to get some more help with her.
Hi all, Molly our 14 month old Basenji is very possessive of her area outside and of her toys. She does NOT like to share. We are fulltime RV people and stay in Arizona in an RV park most of the winter and spring, Molly has become very possessive of her area where we park, she is on a 10" lead outside and when anyone comes up to her while she is on lead she wants to bite their shoes, etc. When we go to the dog park and play with the same dogs and people she is very nice and loves everyone. Does anyone have any ideas how to break her of this.
Molly is 22 lbs and 16 "..she has barked maybe once in her short life, that was when she saw something in the bushes, she of course does 'whine/whimper a bit when she is not happy…...makes her perfect for traveling in motorhome, never bothers her neighbors....she does have sort of a moaning friendly growling sound when she 'greets' visitors........eats when she wants too, often eating the cats food, we are trying to break her of that.......:(
They do grow fast, we, too, love our Molly. She has grown into a sleek little girl, she knows it to, we travel fulltime in our Motorhome and she meets new dogs and people all the time. She loves the guys, people type guys….....she seems to get better each day about not chewing where she shouldn't, but she still loves the socks if she can 'steal them' if they are easy to get she doesn't much care about them......
Beautful pics.......your story sounds so familiar, 'what kind of dog is that??????.:)
Here is Molly @ 10weeks , then @ 10 mos, which she is now. She is a fine lookin' little gal, we think, we are still searching for an African name to register her.
She loves other dogs and people. .We love this site and seeing all the other
Now I have to figure out how to post the pictures…............
Hi All, I have a red and white 10 month old Basenji I got when she was 8 weeks old, and wow it was just like having a new real baby. She is a full time motorhome dog and everyone in the park thinks she looks and walks like a racehorse. She loves all the people and dogs around and wants to play with everyone. We are so glad to find this forum on Basenji's, Molly is our first Basenji and we didn't know what we were getting in for. lol. She is a love. Hi to all.
