That's the spirit! If you cannot get enough of this kind of images, and you are on facebook, check this page out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/basenji.international/ Almost 9.000 members from all over the world. More than your daily dose of B-cuteness.
We are lucky to live in an area (Netherlands) where we can buy good quality raw (deep frozen) food, with good balance between muscle, bone and organs. Also lots of varieties are available. Why would a raw diet be odd? What would basenjis eat in the wild? Meat, eggs and plants. So we feed meat, eggs (one a week) and vegetables (raw/cooked broccoli, carrot, beet, cauliflower, beans and the like). No rice, no peanut butter. Pumpkin only in case of stomach / digestive trouble. No kibble.
I found that when I have little time, I let our two sisters sniff around all they like. It engages their whole being, including their easily overexcited B-brains. When I thake them back in after half an hour they will sleep all day. Running is fine, but it does nothing for their brain or their instinctive need to explore their surroundings. If pressed for time, I would choose sniffing over jogging or biking any time.
We have this one for our two sisters: http://www.zooplus.com/shop/dogs/dog_collars_dog_leads/harnesses/hunter/278261?rrec=true They have never escaped, you can attach the leash on the back or in front, and it is ridiculously cheap.
