Hi, I thought i would update everyone on this topic. My hubby started to handle Milo last spring. It wasn't easy but Milo has been fine mostly in the ring, on the table. He still has issues with certain judges, their appearance, manner or smell. However, Brian can control his tension most of the time. Milo has and does do well in the ring and is a lovely basenji. His breeder i think blamed us for his nervousness, however, i think he is just naturally suspicious of certain people. I am just delighted that we can enjoy him in the showring and look forward to many more years doing the same. I am glad we didn't give up too, so many people do and that is such a shame.

That is certainly a Basenji thing! Had German Shepherds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks and none would ever growl at any of us, however, Milo, the Basenji, did growl and does growl or grumble as i call it when moved from a sleepy, comfy place. As long as they know you are in control, it's ok. Any other time it would not be ok. We address it in a light hearted manner but would not if it were to be aggressive in any way.

Great photos as usual Jess. Maya has always been a favourite of mine and i just don't know why she hasn't done better. A shame but she is beautiful and you should be very proud of her.

It is sad that the numbers have reduced so much. We enter lots of open shows up here in Scotland since there are few Basenji classes anyway here. There are only two Championship shows in Scotland with CCs on offer too. We try to make as many shows south of the border as possible but with fuel costs etc it's just impossible.

Thanks Scott, i realised it was way too far for us. Shame really. I wish more big shows were held north of the border.

Name badges for forum folks would be a good idea Patty. Even a label with our forum names?

Jess you are so right about the video coverage! If only Crufts did the same. We get the same rubbish every year no matter who is covering it, BBC or More4! Westminster have got it right.

Hopefully we will be able to say hello to you and your family. The catalogue will guide you to the bench area and all us Basenji folks will be around there. Look forward to seeing you. Have a fantastic time.

We haven't been in the Basenji breed for too long, only two years, however we have always had big dogs. German Shepherds for 14 years then moved onto Rhodesian Ridgebacks. We like intelligent breeds and wanted another 'hound' but not as large. Had often seen Basenjis at shows, did our homework and then came Milo. That is it now, Basenji every time! Fantastic smart little dogs with huge personalities.
