About me

I have had Basenjis since 1973, and done the apprenticeships of handling, showing, stewarding, and since 1990 judging hounds. I have four at home, one of each colour, and two boys and two girls. I am no longer breeding, but I have learnt a lot from my Bs.

I would pick him as having some B in him, but not all of him. Please learn to Dremel his nails, as they can cause his feet to splay. If you can hear clicking when he walks on a hard floor, that is time to get the Dremel to work. he looks a grand dog, and seeing that he is likely to be half labrador, then get him into obedience. He should be great at being an interesting dog.

cream cheese is a good disguise as well.

There was a person in Qatar that was looking for a B. Look through the forum to find them.

get into the habit of knowing the signs, and get into a routine. When they first wake up, boot (not literally) them outside, and praise them when they go. Take them for regular walks, it is for their enjoyment, not yours. They will get into the routine of pooping and piddling outside on their walks (make sure you pick up the dogs logs). Dogs love routine! Make sure they go outside after a meal, and watch them.

There are many fine pups from Australia, and there are direct flights. Quarantine laws? Australia has distinct export laws as far as health checks go, and crate size has to be appropriate. Good luck.

Try multiple recalls, saying "Treats". It usually works. Dont get into the habit of carrying her. Even my old girl on the walk, and it gets very hot, she stops in the shade and lays down when she wants. I wait and continue on the walk.

She is a good looking girl, and seems to be contented to be the Queen of your household.

Get her weight down, as you are doing her no favours by keeping her weight high. Diabetes and all its associated agonies are a strong possibility, as I found out.

I have to find a spot where there are no sheep around, as farmers are able to shoot (wild) dogs running with intentions on the sheep. Anything that runs is fair game. Mine love the free running. Find a football/cricket ground, or even tennis courts, to let them have a free run. As Sally Zande says, let em run. If there are two of you, drop one person off, and drive further into the woods or whatever, then let them out. It is fascinating to see where they go. And see who is the first to come back or to the other person.

They will come back...you just have to wait.
