We may be talking about domesticated learned behavior VS in the wild behavior. So, we can teach a B to sit on command, but I bet if you came across a B in the wild and said "sit" they would just tilt their hear sideways and give you that "huh?" look
So, did tribesmen train B's to flush out lions? probably! But I doubt they actually attacked a lion. My guy is scared by a plastic bag blowing in the wind! :-).
I feed my guy (almost 2) Taste of the Wild Prairie w/Bison. And while I have had some issues with diarrhea in the past he's good with the food now. The vet suggested a different food at one point but my dog hated it, so we went back to TotW.
Eventually, I tracked it down to acorns (they're toxic to dogs), squirrels were dropping them on our lawn from a neighbor's tree. So. any acorns by you?
Either way Greyslake il is having a basenji speciality next week end, if you really want a dog, every breeder in the area including the one I mention will be there.
Hi Barklessdog, what activities will take place at the Grayslake event?. I have a Basenji and I am curious as I live close to there.
My husband contacted the breeder. She said since she has 3 basenji's she does not want anymore but she will keep in mind if anyone asks.
There was a contract but not so much in depth about returning the puppy. She was a Basenji breeder but did not show them.
We have always had Boxer breeds and we travel every weekend with our kids that's involved in travel sports. We love Gunner and he is such a good boy. That's why we wanted to reach out to the Basenji community where owners understand and knows their personality and find a home where he can hopefully have other basenjis to play with and have more activities. Gunner is good with other dogs but he is very cautious at first. He has played with other dogs. Thank you for all your suggestions.
