3. Positive reinforcement training. Working with your puppy in basic obedience helps to build a relationship between you and your dog and makes sure that you are speaking the same the language. By using positive reinforcement, you teach your puppy that when you are around good things happen which is just what you want for bonding.
Don't let your basenji practice behaviors that you don't want. Set your dog up for success.
Hear hear! Remember, Basenji's are a BRILLIANT breed and will look to out-think you. It's all about what is in it for them… so make it "their" idea in the first place and praise like crazy when they do it.
Welcome to the forum, you will enjoy it here and make lots of friends.
It doesn't matter that you have never had a Dog before because Basenjis are certainly not like other Dogs.
They are wonderful creatures, can be naughty and a challenge but if you fall under their spell you will want more, lol.
