@eeeefarm our room is very warm. We made sure of that since we knew they do not like being cold . She was in our room last night and still cried but did not scream like she was doing before. So that is progress, but we took her out to pee a lot (4 times). Also today we left her to get groceries and put Netflix on so she didn't feel as alone, we heard her cry but when we came home she was lying down (we were gone 30 mins). I feel like that is also progress. We had tried the puppy pen but she would climb to the top even though there was a lid and sometime fall, I didn't like that she could possibly hurt herself in there. In regards to potty training, if we take her out every 3 hours she goes every 3 hours, but if she is hanging out or sleeping beside us on the couch she easily makes it 4-5 hours, we use the phase "do your business" but she seems to just know that outside means time to pee and poo. We started obedience training today and it was encouraging to hear that everyone was going through the same things with their puppies (though they do not have a basenji). We are taking it one day at a time. Thank you all for your comments, this is a really wonderful resource.
