These suggestions all look awesome. The only thing i would add is try putting a tshirt you and your significant other have worn for a while. I would do this in her bed and in her crate it will help to soothe her and get her used to your scent. Its an old hunters trick for finding a lost dog but it works for anxiety as well.

I would suggest the Ruff Wear Climate Changer plus the Ruff Wear Quinzee maybe some boots if you can swing it. XS on both of the jackets.

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone else had a basenji that puts their head under things (like a bed or dresser) and yodels their little head off. Indiana LOVES to do this and its so strange. He does it any old time but especially when he gets excited. He will sprint around the house and dive under the bed so just his head is covered and give a big yodel. Any ideas why? I know he is a freak, but seriously this is just strange!

Thanks for the link I do have one to add to the list. I call it the "silly little puppy". Sears. That's where you put one ear up and one out to the side wiggle your tail, dance in place, and growel. Still trying to get some footsge for you all.

Has anyone had a basenji who xpresses their feelings with their ears? Lori our female can only make one noise, a growel, so she does that @ varying pitches and speeds while wiggling her ears. To the back means anxious, to he side is adventerous, about half way inbetween excited, etc. Anyone ever encountered this?

Don't feel so bad. This happened to Indy and I cried, I blamed myself, I did everything and the next day he was fine. The only thing is he does not like other dogs near his head any more. He is going to be just fine, the both of you are. The best medicine here is going to be some family snuggling. Good luck.

No unfortunately I was laughing too hard to get the camera. I wish I had gottwn the look of terror on indy's face when he realized lori was not going to calm down though

Step 1: wait for daddy to wrap your sister up in a blanket so she is folded in it
Step 2: wait for daddy to turn out the lights
Step 3: lay on the folds of the blanket so your sister is trapped and trying to eat your face
Step 4: don't move if you forget why refer to face eating section of step 3
QED argument won

To add to what tanzinia said. We trained both our pups to gunfire. We started by frrding in their crate with the door open. When the pup had a good rythem going we would tap lightly on the wall behind. If there was any reaction stop and wait for eating to resume. Repeat. We got to the point where a board ontop of the kennel could be slammed with a metal object without as much as aflinch. Now loud noises are no problem
