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.

take him to an obedience class. For you and him. You will get to know him more, and what he (wants) to do for you. It will help in the socialisation, and meeting new people and dogs. Keep going and you will have a friend for life.

Go to the Zande website, and included there are some material about getting a Basenji, or not. It does not sound like your environment is right for a Basenji. The temperature upto 34C is okay, but after that they start looking for shade and the cooler spots. When it is hot here, above 40C, the older girl I have will walk, but when there is some shade she will lay down until she is ready before moving on. They are in control, and let you pamper to their needs, but they are definitely trainable.

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.
