So many things. The main thing is the biting. We have tried many options to get him to stop. Pretty much to no avail. He is also a chewer. Paper, electrical cords, carpet, the list goes on. Because he was a rescue from SPCA he has not been socialized. We have tried a class, but he was scared to death. He is so adorable and we love him so much. We just want Niles and ourselves to be trained properly so we will have a great family.
So glad I found you. We have one Basenji that we just adopted from the SPCA. He is 6 1/2 months and very adorable. We were hoping to meet other owners and get help with trainers in our area. Hope to hear from you:)
My name is Paula. I live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida with my husband and 2 sons. We are owned by 3 red/white basenjis: Benjie is 14 yrs, Congo is 7 yrs and HoBie is 8 yrs. I have been active in Basenji Rescue (BRAT) for over 5 years.
I look forward to connecting with existing friends and making new friends here at Basenji Forums.
Baroos and tummyrubs to all!
We adopted Niles our Basenji from the SPCA and he is approx. 6and a 1/2 months old. He has been thru puppy training at the St. Pete Dog Club but still needs some help. (as do we) We are trying to find a trainer in the Tampa Bay area that is familiar with Basenji's. We really love him but want to be sure he gets the proper training. Since he was a rescue dog he has socialization issues along with other problems. Please help.
