Is it possible for you to install a doggy door? I was forced to put one in - my basenji would wake me up @ 1-2 am to take her out. I'd be sleeping and there'd be a dog @ my face tugging and nudging me to take her out. My basenji has NEVER peed or pooped in my house and she will be 13 in January. I will say she does most of her BUSSINESS on her walks but will go to her "poop station" w/ her doggie door if necessary. The doggie door has been a god-send. We do not crate our basenji so she can go out whenever necessary to relieve herself. My only issue now - she is too old to jump up on the bed - so when she goes out @ night she comes in and stands on side of bed hitting me & pulling on the blankets for me to pick her up onto the bed - she is such a baby and I love her!️
All of those names are CUTE! The right name will hit you - I'm sure. We acquired our basenji from the breeder @ the age of one (she was a "return" dog) she was already named Kembe ( supposedly an African name meaning -"Thumbprint" due to the fact she has a thumbprint marking on her neck. We call her "Kemberley" which fits her perfectly because she is such a feminine princess of a dog. I'm sure you will select the PERFECT name for your basenji!
