This is almost the closest I have ever gotten to the shore, back when I was a puppy (5 months ago) and mom would let me run free on the beach. The only other time was when she held me and tried taking me in with her! If you see the pictures of the waves that day oh boy! My mom is just like me though, very persistent so I probably will end up going in the water at some point!
@daureen Thank you! I was reading in one of your posts that you were getting neutered and had to wear a cone, I have a cone on right now because we were attacked by another dog when we were going for a walk on the sidewalk! I have had it on since the 28th and still have another 10 days! It is very important they don't lick the wound, even if you think it is good for them because their lick is like a scrape lick and it opens up the wound. So I take it off when he is calm and I am able to watch him but if he starts to get too wild I put the collar back on, it has become almost a training method, he knows if there is no biting or licking then no collar. Good luck!
Thank you so very much, I am reviewing the information as I previously had a dear Basenji named Floyd 1997-2003 that we suffered with for 2 years and I was very careful or what I thought upon purchasing Sky Hunter. I saw this information which says PRA-N @ http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/ however when I looked up on the site of OFA just now, which you are referencing, I see the Sire seems to have been tested in 2017 as a carrier .... I will order the test right away as I will pray this is a non-issue. I did not see anything about the minimum age as his 1st birthday is coming up and Sky Hunter wants to have lots of healthy fun! As for the mom she is registered in Federacion Canina Dominicana, so I cant search except I do have a DNA study that seems to be clean. I will be sure to do the test...Thank you for reaching out and I will keep you all posted.
Hello! I am very glad to be here and get to share stories with you and learn and grow with all of you. I am 10 months old and already have a girlfriend and live a few blocks from the beach! My mom is trying to teach me to go in the ocean and is having very little luck. Especially since we got attacked by a very mean dog in early June.... I am currently grounded and have a cone so I won’t lick my stitches and have some extra time to be on the forum now so I look forward to meeting you all and learning lots of new tricks!
