Thank you all for the suggestions. He gets at least one 45 plus minute walk a day. We also run with him outside several times a day in our backyard. We have a long straight away in our house that we throw toys down and he loves to run and get them. I dont think he is bored we play with him quite a bit. He does get a reaction from us when he hits because it hurts. I did distract him today when he came towards me and that worked. Now I have to get all 5 of us in the house to do it as well.
Our boy just turned 1 last month and is playing with his birthday duck. The past couple of months he has taken to biting our feet. It does not matter if you have on shoes, socks or barefoot, it is all game for him. How can we break him of this horrible habit. He does it while we are sitting watching TV or when we come into the house or just walking around.

We got our wonderful basenji who just turned 1 in Dec from Khanis basenjis in SE Portland. She does allow you to go visit and see the dogs and ask any questions. Last year we got to play with about 15 puppies it was great
She does show her dogs so her reply may not always be quick
I know B's are not supposed to like water, but our boy Korben loves to play in the hose. If I am outside watering plants, Korben will chase the water, try to grab it with his mouth and run back and forth under it. If I squirt the hose into a small pool he will even jump in there and try to get it. Just curious if any other B's out there enjoy water as well.
We just got a basenji from Kathy khanisbasenjis.com. She is locat in SE Portland Oregon and has bread them for years. I. Am not sure where you are located but I know there are 2 in Oregon that I am aware of. You put a deposit down and she does like to meet the owner.
Our male B is almost 6 months old. He is constantly nipping and trying to bite at our feet. We have tried to just stand still so he does not think it is a game and tried telling him no. We have also tried to distract him with a toy but nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions?
