Being that we have been owned by Basenjis for close to 20 years.
If you open a door or gate without paying full attention to where that Basenji is they will take off. Nose down eyes scanning anything they can smell and or see.
We have had many Basenji roundups over the years. You have to very cautious, some are better than others but of the 4 I’ve had 3 would send you running.
One other thing to keep in mind never put a nylon lead on one at the collar I’ve seen one chew through it in nothing flat.
I have all woven steel leads for mine.
They are an excellent companion animal you just always have to be the pack leader.
